At this point, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call us Quince devotees. With an eye on quality essentials at approachable price points, the fashion and lifestyle brand has been putting out smash hit after smash hit, from silk shirts that can be machine-washed to well-made hardshell suitcases that basically sell out the minute they're restocked.
If you’ve yet to add a Quince item or two to your vacation outfit rotation, you’re seriously missing out. The brand boasts a truly plentiful mix of stylish staples perfect for fall and winter travels — think warm puffer jackets to throw on when you are freezing — and trusty pieces to keep you comfortable for any length of journey, such as matching sweatsuits and buttery travel pants. All of this is delivered at fantastic value for money (a cashmere sweater for $50?). It would be hard to find that anywhere else).
"After three decades of being my clumsy, messy self, I have come to the painful realization that light-colored wools and I do not mix. As I often get food and drink spilled on myself, sweaters made in fabrics that can be washed instantly — like a cotton knit — are a much safer bet if I want to keep my white or beige pieces unspoiled. This is especially true when I'm on a trip and can't get to my local dry cleaner quickly enough. Quince's organic cotton sweaters are just as cozy as its woolen pieces but are much lower maintenance. This graphic black-and-white sweater gets my vote: The polo shirt collar is so trendy right now, and the cropped but relaxed fit has enough room for layering (here I am wearing Quince's SuperSoft Fleece Crew, another one of my travel favorites, as a thermal underneath). The best part? I've thrown it in the laundry a couple of times already, and the fabric hasn't pilled one bit." —Venus Wong, Senior Travel Writer

"I know I’m not the only one who regrets wearing hood-less short jackets on frigid days when you’re out and about doing tourist-y things, especially in NYC. So I just got this puffer jacket with the hopes of the longer length keeping my booty free from frostbite this winter. Because I just can’t deal with freezing cold outdoor seats and benches anymore. From first impressions, this puffer is super-lightweight but also super-warm, thanks to the goose down and goose down feathers. The length is also perfect for me, hitting at the top of my thighs and promising to keep me covered. But my favorite part of this jacket is the fleece side panels, which stretch with my movements. So when I go to sit, the sides stretch around my hips so I don’t feel encased like a sausage. I’m so excited to wear this piece all winter (and to pack it up super-compact and tiny during my travels)." —Victoria Montalti, Associate Affiliate Writer

"We know how much our readers love a good pair of travel pants that are not leggings, and Quince has more than delivered in that department. This Ultra-Stretch Ponte Straight Leg Pant is an all-time travel MVP in my book, balancing a more dressy style with an ultra-comfy four-way stretch. The product copy on the site describes it best: It's as if dress pants and yoga pants had a baby. I love that these pants have enough give to accommodate my movements (especially while I'm pretzeled in my economy seat), but the bootcut fit also skims my body and keeps me warm and cozy. The brand offers the bottoms in three different inseams: 30 inches, 32 inches, and 34 inches. Do note that if you're a super-shortie like me, a trip to the tailor might be required, even with the shortest inseam." —Venus Wong, Senior Travel Writer

"If you’re a person who finds airplanes to be a comfortable temperature, more power to you and your above-average circulation. As someone with no such luck, I like to pack a sweater when I’m embarking on airplane travel. This Quince duster cardigan is super-snuggly and soft without being too heavy and cozying up under it doesn’t give me the deep ick I get from using an airplane blanket." —Sarah Crow, Affiliate Director

"Vacations aren’t always sunshine and piña coladas. Something I’ve learned later in life, as my family is a beach vacation family — therefore, you need to bring versatile and comfortable outerwear for when it gets chilly at night. Quince has so many great basics that allow you to travel with less clothing without sacrificing the number of outfit changes you want to make. This Merino Wool Cropped Shirt Jacket is perfect for day and nighttime outfits, and it can be dressed up or down. I love how soft it is and how timeless the style is. It’s a really good capsule wardrobe piece." —Becca Sax, Affiliate Coordinator
"This shirt-jacket hybrid is the type of layering piece I always bring with me on a plane. The eco-friendly knit material feels oh so soft — a friend actually commented on how luxurious it felt after hugging me at the airport — and it can double as a cuddly travel blanket when rolled up in a bundle. It's not too bulky, so you easily layer it under a puffer jacket, and the big front pockets are a very handy place to store my passport and phone." —Venus Wong, Senior Travel Writer

"I’ve never been a jeans and T-shirt person, but I’m also just smart enough to know that wearing a super-constricting dress on a plane is going to make for miserable travels. This Quince silk slip dress is my go-to for practically any occasion, and it's my favorite airport travel outfit. It pretty much feels like you’re wearing nothing, doesn’t wrinkle much, and looks polished enough to wear straight from the plane to wherever else you might be going (including bed!). It’s also a great choice for travel because it’s so light that it takes up approximately zero room in a carry-on bag or suitcase." —Sarah Crow, Affiliate Director

"Eye masks are an essential travel item for me because one never knows when or where one might need to take a snooze. I’m a firm believer in getting good sleep, no one likes to be cranky. I also love feeling like a princess with this luxurious mulberry mask. Plus, after your trip, you can just toss the eye mask into the washing machine — goodbye, travel germs. Pro tip: This also makes for an excellent travel gift." —Becca Sax, Affiliate Coordinator
