Planning out a week of vacay-ready outfits doesn’t really matter if it arrives at your destination as a wrinkled mess. We admittedly love stuffing our carry-on with as many options as possible (because, you never know), but that doesn’t leave any room for a steamer. So, this summer we’re seeking out the pieces that were designed to be wrinkle-resistant. Seriously these materials won’t hold a crease, no matter how you roll, fold or jam them in. Now you can spend your time stressing about something else, like figuring out where you left your passport.

This Summery Fabric Is Basically a Personal Air Conditioner

floral maxi

Eliza J Faux Wrap Maxi Dress

These polyester ruffles will never lose their shape—and will actually create a flattering, flowy silhouette that is best accessorized with a marg on the beach.

white blazer

Chelsea28 Shawl Collar Blazer

Get to know yet another entirely wrinkle-resistant fabric: lyocell (or Tencel, as it’s most commonly known). BTW, you can throw this blazer over your cover-up to make it appropriate for that fancy dinner reservation.

halogen pants

Halogen Wide Leg Crop Pants

Remove the cute sash and use it as a belt on your wide-leg jeans, as a hair accessory or wrapped around the handle of your bag. You’re welcome.

madewell dress

Madewell Easy Sleeveless Button Front Denim Dress

Unlike classic chambray, this dress is made from a cotton-Tencel blend that’s lightweight and—you guessed it—wrinkle-resistant.

jcrew jumpsuit

J.crew Wrap-tie Jumpsuit

Dress it up. Dress it down. Wear it however you’d like. This number is made of an uber-flattering, textured crepe fabric that somehow has the ability to keep pesky wrinkles at bay.

linen cargo shorts

Joie Daynna Linen Shorts

Put down the hotel iron. These linen shorts are supposed to look laid-back and rumpled.

white long sleeve tee

Atm Anthony Thomas Melillo Classic Jersey Long-sleeve Boy Tee

Like your beloved cotton tee, but made of super-soft jersey that will never crease.

bike shorts

Girlfriend Collective High Waist Bike Shorts

We’re living for this comfort-minded trend—you won’t feel guilty about rolling these spandex shorts into a ball.

reformation dress

Reformation August Dress

Jersey (the fabric, not the state) is the world’s greatest gift to fashion. It’s soft, swingy and forgiving. Indeed, it’s everything you could ever want on vacation.

cashmere pants

Tory Sport Performance Cashmere Wide Leg Pants

Because you already know this but usually forget it: Planes are freezing cold. Plus, you won’t look like a sloppy mess upon arrival, because you’re wearing cashmere.
