Whether you're planning your next vacation well in advance or scrambling to fill your carry-on at the last minute, we — along with Amazon — are here to help. Our philosophy when it comes to travel fashion is to prioritize items that are practical and versatile. That includes everything from foldable sunglasses (yes, that's a thing!) and unstructured hats to two-piece sets and versatile bodysuits. The beauty of these finds? While they may be hard to find at traditional retailers, they're readily available on Amazon.

For an even smoother shopping experience, we've curated a list of our top 15 travel fashion picks. But first, a tip from Alexandra Jimenez, also known as Travel Fashion Girl on Instagram: Always prioritize comfort, especially with footwear. "I wore the cutest shoes on my birthday trip to Paris and after walking in them for a day I was in so much pain I could no longer walk," she told PS. "Needless to say, instead of living it up for my birthday, I spent my time suffering in pain, not being able to make the most of my trip."

Keep scrolling to check out our complete list, influenced by Jimenez's recommendation. It features foldable ballet flats and comfy sneakers, plus other selections that might just revolutionize the way you travel.
