In my ongoing quest to simplify the packing process, I’ve come to rely on the magic of one-and-done outfits that require zero matching. Yes, dresses are an easy go-to — particularly maxi dresses that give me full-leg coverage — but some days I want something different (with a little more mobility). That’s why flowy jumpsuits have become the M.V.P. of my travel wardrobe. They’re so much more comfortable than jeans and cuter than leggings, plus they’re lightweight and perfectly airy for the summertime heat.
Versatility is also a major selling point of a jumpsuit. I like to mix it up by packing a casual, boho-style jersey knit jumpsuit for daytime excursions and a dressier, more streamlined one that gives evening wear vibes. You can do a lot with accessories, too: a jumpsuit provides a blank slate for things like belts, blazers, and statement jewelry. And, they seem to do something great for my figure. Jumpsuits have a way of skimming my (ahem, ample) curves without clinging that always looks flattering and keeps me feeling comfortable and confident.
Thinking about hopping on the jumpsuit train? I found a slew of summer-ready options at Amazon to suit any style, including ones with asymmetrical necklines, sleeved and sleeveless silhouettes, and even tailored options with belt loops. But, the best part is that they all come with budget-friendly price tags that stay south of $50. In fact, you can get them for as little as $27, so pick up your own day/night pair and be prepared for any dress code you encounter on the road.
Buenos Ninos V-Neck Jumpsuit
Behold the classic jumpsuit. This is the style that got me on the jumpsuit bandwagon when I was living in Bali. Its thin straps and scooped neckline keep you cool in the heat, while the relaxed, oversized silhouette and wide-leg pants promote airflow. Complete your carefree tropical look with flip flops and a floppy sun hat. Irons? What are those? This jumpsuit doesn’t even wrinkle thanks to its travel-friendly rayon fabric.
“I have had 1 million compliments on it,” a reviewer wrote. “It is soft, comfortable, and allows you to move freely… I bought this outfit for a trip to Miami and it is so freaking comfy.”

PrettyGarden Off-Shoulder Jumpsuit
Here’s the thing about jumpsuits: all you need is one unique element and it’s an eye-catching outfit unto itself. This PrettyGarden jumpsuit uses an off-the-shoulder detail to create a flirty effect. This style is also great for those of us who can’t really do a straight-up-and-down cut and need something with a little more shape, which is why its built-in drawstring waist is perfect.
“I bought this for a weekend trip,” a traveler began their review. “It was so soft and comfortable and looked amazing on. Several travel companions had this as well; tall and thin, short and thick, it looked great on everyone.”

Anrabess One-Shoulder Pleated Jumpsuit
Whether you plan to try out a Michelin star restaurant on your next trip or simply want to dial up your look for beach club cocktails, this Anrabess jumpsuit, with its gorgeous asymmetrical neckline and gauzy rayon fabric (nope, it’s not linen!), is the look. Heck, you can even wear it to a summer wedding. Add some dangly earrings and a clutch, and prepare for a tidal wave of compliments.
“It’s perfect for warm days with sneakers and flip-flops, or dressier sandals if you’re going from day-to-night wear,” according to one shopper. “It’s comfortable and packable for travel.”

Happy Sailed Wide-Leg Jumpsuit
A decidedly put together look for day or night, this Happy Sailed jumpsuit is, in my humble opinion, absolutely stately in black. Its flowy yet boasts a structured shape, punctuated by its figure-accentuating, high-waisted sash, making it perfect for anything from baby showers to brunch. Plus, the ruffled cap sleeves and wide-leg pants add elegant flair to the look.
“I bought it for a weekend trip to LA; I needed something easy to wear that would look cute,” a reviewer explained. “Everything fits fantastically, and the fabric is thick but has breathability. It’s easy to dress up or down. I got several compliments on it when I wore it, and for the price, it’s fantastic.”

Pink Queen Wrap Jumpsuit
This belted jumpsuit by Pink Queen is practically made for business trips — especially in this khaki-apricot colorway. Outside of the boardroom, it gives sophisticated vacation vibes with its wrap-front top and wide-leg pants, which can be easily dressed up or down depending on your itinerary for the day. Despite its structured look, it’s made with a spandex material, so it’s pretty stretchy and comfy for all-day wear.
“The jumper is awesome,” a traveler exclaimed. “I needed it in time for my trip. It fits nice and it is a nice quality material; it’s not light, see-through, or cheap looking. It is worth the money.”

Amazon Essentials Studio Terry Fleece Jumpsuit
If sweatpants had a baby with a jumpsuit, it would be this Amazon Essentials look. A slim silhouette, elasticized ankles, and a drawstring waist give it a buttery softness, but its cotton-blend terry material makes it way lighter and more breathable than actual sweatpants. Pair it with your favorite cardigan or zip-up hoodie, and you’ve got the perfect plane outfit.
“I bought this for an upcoming flight and I had three requirements: comfort, stylish, and pockets,” a traveler commented. “This fits all three! I’m tempted to buy more in more colors.”

Anrabess V-Neck Cutout Smocked Jumpsuit
It doesn’t get much more obsession-worthy than this flowy, cropped legged Anrabess jumpsuit, which has an elasticized, smocked waist and the cutest keyhole cutout for added style points. This romantic number even has pockets on the sides — see, it doesn’t get any better than this!
“I loved the fit, but I thought It would be too short and I would need heels, but I used flat sandals and the length was fine,” a shopper assured. “It totally fits as expected and it’s not sheer… It was very comfortable [while] on vacation in extreme heat and humidity and I felt great in it. I loved it so much that I purchased the olive green one, too.”
To buy: amazon.com, $43 (originally $53)

What do you get when you cross a T-shirt with a maxi dress? It’s this Lainab jumpsuit, which has a breezy wide-leg silhouette and a comfy drawstring waist.

“This was purchased for a trip to Europe,” a customer shared in their review. “It packed well, was wrinkle-free, and looked lovely when worn. It’s an easy item to throw on for a nice meal out in the evening. Pair it with a scarf or an interesting necklace, and it’s quite elegant.”

ReoRia Scoop Neck Romper
Well, while a jumpsuit is technically a full-length piece, a shorts romper can technically qualify as one, too — and, ReoRia romper definitely makes the cut in my book. Grab this flowy drawstring-waist outfit and pair it with any number of accessories, from sandals to an oversized tote, for a sightseeing tour, beach day, or fun night out.
