Cocoon Day & Night Dress The instant we saw this lovely, lightweight, body-skimming dress, we had to have one, and you will, too. In fact, you will want it in several colors. (Tip: It is the perfect “little black dress.”) Slip it on for a walk on the beach or a lunch date, and throw a wrap or lightweight jacket on top for dinner or cocktails. It also can be worn belted or not, and it folds down into a small mesh pouch that can easily fit into your purse. cocoon.at

Alite Designs Kincade Backpack When it comes to camping gear, this company creates some of the coolest designs out there: 100 percent BPA-free and recyclable cooking utensils, colorful portable chairs and amazing cocoon sleeping bags, all made sustainably. So when we needed the perfect mini backpack to take on short hikes or city tours, something that would take up no room in the suitcase, it’s no surprise that we found it here. alitedesigns.com

Icebreaker Thin Wool Siren Tank This is our favorite travel tank, made from super-thin merino wool and LYCRA, which will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. It is so comfy, we wear it underneath our clothes, as a cami, and it’s also pretty enough to wear on its own, as a tank top, in a variety of colors. us.icebreaker.com

Callina mia Cape We all need something to wrap ourselves in on the plane. This beautiful cabled cape will keep you cozy en route, and it is a stylish and versatile piece to wear when you get there. Made from soft and sustainably sourced alpaca, hand-knitted in Peru, Callina also donates a portion of proceeds to The Mirasol Project, a boarding school in a remote region of the country, serving children of alpaca shepherds. callinastyle.com

PACT Leggings Not only are PACT clothes super-soft and sustainable, the company is B Corp, GOTS- and now Fair Trade-Certified. When it comes to a commitment to the environment and ethical business practices, it doesn’t get much better than this! We love their colorful styles, like these organic cotton leggings, great for working out, yoga or layering under a tunic for a stroll around town. wearpact.com
