The Best Hot Weather Travel Clothes for Women

Woman exploring

We know firsthand what it’s like to need to scratch that travel itch – so when we need to be prepared but don’t want to overdose on vitamin D, we pack the best warm weather travel clothing and get gone.


What features are essential for traveling clothes when visiting tropical or hot climates?

When shopping for women’s travel clothing for hot weather, look for these key features:

Roll one up: Bigger isn’t better! There’s plenty of room when we’re traveling with pieces that pack down small or roll up tidy.

Easy care, quick dry clothing: We don’t have time for ironing, so wrinkle free fabrics that are easy to wash and dry quickly while we are on the move are best.

No rest for the wicking: Wicking, breathable fabric and clothes that keep you cool when it’s past warm outside (but also dry fast enough that we don’t get clammy where the AC is blasting) are key for staying comfortable in hot or sticky climates.

Pocket empowered: We believe hands-free is the way to be, so we can be hands-on. Yup, our bottoms, travel dresses, skorts and travel skirts with pockets help us to carry our stuff securely.

Go footloose: “I love hot, sweaty feet!” said no one ever. The best walking sandals for travel should provide adjustability, technical comfort footbeds, water-friendly materials and more. Title Nine offers a curated selection of some of the best walking shoes for travel, including athletic shoes, sneakers and breathable, comfortable sandals for your next excursion.

Sun protection that won’t wash off: Applying and re-applying lotions is a sticky, messy pain – so instead, choose sun protective clothes that offer built-in certified UPF protection from the sun. From UPF20 through UPF50+, Title Nine offers UPF-certified shirts, shorts, hats and more.

Made to move it: Everything Title Nine offers is made to move with the rhythms of an active life. Whether we’re trekking across the Sahara, backpacking through Europe or taking the family camping at the beach, every piece is designed to boost us, not hold us back.

Transitions like a pro: There’s always room for multi-taskers, even when our bag is small. Pieces that transition easily from day to night, from sweaty to ready, are the ones we rely on to get us from trail to town without losing a step.

What are the best hot weather fabrics?

Woman wearing travel clothes

“Wash, wear, wear, wear, wear, repeat” is what travel clothing care labels should say, or at least, we think so. Thanks to performance wicking, built-in UPF coverage, wrinkle-resilient blends and odor-fighters, everything made from our hot weather fabrics is ready to roll up and roll out on the open road. The best summer travel outfits are made of these performance fabrics offered only at Title Nine.

  • WickID™ Meaning very, very good wicking that dries 4x faster than cotton. A zap-drying fabric that sits softly on our skin and emerges wrinkle-free from our pack. WickID™ takes us everywhere. Our ultra-breathable fast-drying poly, odor-shirking Tencel™, infused with drirelease® performance fibers that dramatically improve how wetness is pulled from the skin and released into the air. Shop WickID breathable clothes.

  • Buttah™ The year-round soother that washes and wears like a dream. Our soft, peached blend of wrinkle-resistant and wash-and-dry-ready poly/spandex. Shop Buttah wrinkle free travel clothes.

  • Matahari™ The double agent performance fabric that plays both sides and wins. Working and playing in overtime, Matahari™ goes from sweaty to ready in a snap. Our UPF 35 poly/spandex with StinkStopper™ odor blocking for more adventures with less laundry. Shop Matahari anti-odor clothing.

  • Nimblene™ Amphibious in nature, allowing us to move quickly from river to trail, from wet to dry: the heavy hitting, surprisingly sturdy lightweight fabric that’s summer-ready. Our fast-drying, springy , stretch woven poly/spandex that’s certified UPF 50 to boot. Shop Nimblene quick dry clothing.

  • ClambR™ Our abrasion-resistant, water-repellent, stretch nylon/spandex fabric. Soft, but rugged enough for every adventure urban to outback. Shop ClambR water repellent fabric clothes.
