Keep Cool (and Warm) on Vacation with Climate-Control Clothing

By JOANNE LATIMER

Dressing for the “getting-there” part of travel can be more difficult than packing for your trip. What do you wear to prepare for chilly flights that become too warm if you’re stuck on the tarmac and for the climate you’re leaving as well as the one you’re going to? And how can you be both comfortable and stylish

Icebreaker Touch Lab has the answer. This New Zealand–based company has a chic line of sporty clothing that adapts to all climates, making it perfect travel gear. Their secret is light merino wool, shorn from sheep living in the rugged Southern Alps of New Zealand. The wool is non-itch and breathes to prevent clamminess. In the summer, merino wool keeps the sheep cool in temperatures that hit 35°C.

But none of these technical specs matter much while ogling their sexy new Roma wrap travel dress ($149) or the Tech T Lite ($74.99). The Cruise Cardigan ($169.99) is cozy in the departure lounge, while the men’s LS-Tech-T-Lite covers all his in-flight needs. With hoodies and skorts, long-sleeve Ts and yoga pants to boot, this line of versatile separates is ideal for the “en-route” and “during” of your vacation.
