Our Beyond Travel™ Collection started as a revolution in travel-friendly attire using a proprietary wrinkle-resistant, four-way stretch fabric. Fast forward to today, the collection has catapulted to reign as the most versatile, all-occasion collection any woman could want.


The Backstory

Our best-selling knitwear collection begins with a wrinkle-resistant, mini-ottoman, double-knit fabric with superior stretch and shape retention…the ideal for packing and traveling. As the collection gained its momentum, we wondered why limit these amazing properties for just travel? With styles offering all-day to all-night comfort, versatile styling, and easy care, we expanded the collection for all wearing occasions. While it's true Beyond Travel boasts packability of heroic proportions—going from luggage to lectures or a pressing dinner date—the rationale of assimilating the styles into everyday wardrobes is genius. Beyond Travel is a favorite for work, going out, running errands, AND vacationing.

For uncomplicated styling and dressing with ease, let us guide you on how to put a Beyond Travel luxe knitwear capsule together.


1. Establish The Palette

When building your capsule collection, it's important to focus on selecting a color palette that works well together. We suggest including staple colors like black, navy, camel and ivory to provide a solid foundation for your outfits. Additionally, incorporating pops of color and prints can add vibrancy to your ensembles. Select a few printed garments that can be paired together and work with other solids, like our Beyond Travel green floral blazer and matching shell. Note, this set is designed to match up to our Beyond Travel navy or ivory pants, but you can also pair these to denim, tweed, and cotton pieces to switch up your options.Tile 1 models wearing white top, natural straw belt, navy skort and white sandals.

2. Consider Core Pieces

When you're selecting key pieces for your new capsule, consider the type of wardrobe options you need. Is work a core occasion? If so, build your work outfits around jackets and blazers. With the current trend in suiting, you might want to include our ultra-versatile boyfriend blazer—it adds a polished look to everything it’s paired to. And in an arsenal of staple colors, you’re outfitted season after season in the most coveted and comfortable fitting blazer imaginable.

The second most vital piece is the pant. Choose the silhouette to flatter your frame, from wide-leg palazzos to a high-rise straight leg to cropped versions, and your work style will be effortless. All Beyond Travel bottoms are designed in an easy pull-on style to eliminate bulk and binding. Along with absolute polish, your day will be 100% comfortable, even if it extends into the evening hours the evening hours. So much so, you'll want to take these pants beyond the office.


3. Supplement With Mix-And-Match Options

Select coordinating tops and shells that easily interchange with your core builders and essentials.

Beyond Travel tops work well as mix-and-match options from the collection and integrate with multiple looks. From basic layers to chic design details, we recommend an assortment of tops with different necklines and sleeve lengths to balance out your capsule.Tile 1 models wearing white top, natural straw belt, navy skort and white sandals.

4. Dress the Look Up or Down

Lastly, you’ll want to select the appropriate shoes and accessories to wear with your capsule collection that will allow you to dress up or down as the occasion requires. Consider statement jewelry, like a matching shell necklace and drop-down earrings, or metallics that go with everything—like simple hoops and bracelets. The same outfit can be dressed up or down with the addition of the right accessories and footwear. We suggest including a neutral hat, complementing sandals and wedges or heels, and a handbag or two to rotate with your looks.

And that is how you can build a Beyond Travel Capsule Collection.
