If you love dressing up, it's easy to go overboard when shopping for a vacation. And if you love dresses, in particular, it can be tempting to buy a bunch that will look stunning in one Instagram photo, never to be worn again. But what makes a great travel dress truly worth the splurge? Comfort and style are important, but for a woman on the go, versatility is key. Can it go from day to night? Does it look just as good with sneakers as it does with heels? Could you throw a sweater over it on a chilly day? Whether you're jetting off to Mexico, Charleston, New York, Europe, or anywhere in between, these are dresses you'll feel your best in, however you choose to wear them.
