Always on the hunt for comfortable clothing to wear while traveling, I was delighted to learn about Aventura Clothing for women a couple months ago. I hadn’t heard of the eco-friendly brand before; it uses organic cotton, bamboo blends and recycled polyester in its variety of clothing — everything from sweaters and scarves to capris and dresses to hoodies and vests.
There’s a specific travel friendly collection that focuses on wrinkle-resistant items that pack beautifully. But I sampled a few items from its fall line that I’ve worn a lot in recent weeks as the Colorado weather cooled. Here’s a peek:
Tandy Cardigan, $79: This cute sweater is made of viscose (rayon), nylon and a touch of angora. I love the tie that gathers the sweater at the waist for a flattering fit — though I must admit, I think it would look better on someone with a bit more of a waist to show off! The 3/4 sleeves allows you to wear the cardigan over a slim-fitting long-sleeve shirt (with the long sleeves peeking out), a T-shirt or a tank top (like the one below!). Dry clean only. Comes in four colors, including Henna at left.
Samba Seamless Cami, $45: This camisole is billed from the “intimates” collection on the Aventura Clothing website, but I wore this under the sweater above, and I thought the pretty stretchy lace on the neckline and hem looked so cute poking outside of the sweater. The elastic straps have some give for a comfy fit; in fact, the entire tank top is super comfortable, made of 92% nylon and 8% spandex. It definitely has a slim fit, but the ruching on the sides is extremely flattering. I think this cami would be absolutely perfect if it had a built in shelf bra. Hand wash recommended. Comes in five colors, including Lead Blue at right.
The Aventura scarves are super cute and versatile, too. I have the Veleta scarf ($29) at left, in a great checked pattern in muted grey and a dark taupe, with multi-colored loopy thread, that complements so many other items in my closet (including the tank and sweater above). Made of rayon, this scarf is quite soft. Unfortunately, I don’t see this scarf available on the AventuraClothing.com website anymore, but you can check the brick-and-mortar store locator page to see if it might be in a store near you.
Thanks to Aventura Clothing for providing clothing to me for review here at The Vacation Gals!
