Best Clothing For Summer Travel

It's no secret; it's science. Savvy travelers swear by YALA to keep them cool, dry, and comfortable on long travel days and balmy vacations. YALA's Bamboo Jersey fabrics are naturally moisture-wicking, breathable, temperature-regulating, anti-microbial, UPF 30+, and incredibly soft. 

But what does all of that Mean?

Moisture-wicking Fabrics for Humidity (and more)

YALA Bamboo Jersey fabrics wick away moisture, which is why people love the Gwen Bike Short for anti-chaffing in the thighs, YALA Sleepwear for hot flashes, and YALA Loungewear for sweltering humidity. They keep you dry when the odds get stacked against you. 

Cooling Bamboo Fabric for Long Flights

Breathable + Temperature regulating - YALA cools you down on a packed flight and keeps you far fresher than that guy you got stuck beside, who really needs to know about our Men's Collection

How to Travel Light

Let nature do its thing. Bamboo's naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties increase your ability to wear more and wash less. Try airing YALA Tops outside overnight to refresh them for a new day's adventure, and skip the backup outfits.  

Sun Protective Fabric

YALA fabrics are tested and proven to provide up to UPF 50 sun protection naturally, without stuffy synthetics. Our darker colors block over 98% of the sun's ultraviolet rays! Even our lighter colors provide UPF 30, blocking 96% of all UV.

Clothing for Long-Haul Trips

YALA packs incredible softness in easy styles that move with you and don't pinch or pull, providing comfort and ease during long road trips, TSA checks, and bag stowage acrobatics.

Look Stylish While Traveling

Casually Stylish and Versatile - Ok, we snuck that one in, but no one wants to arrive at their destination in frumpy sweatpants, no matter how comfy they are! YALA pairs comfort with style, so you can flutter from baggage claim to reunion photos like the social butterfly and savvy traveler you are.

How to Pack a Suitcase

Now that you know what to wear, the challenge is narrowing it down and packing it right. Have you heard about the 5 4 3 2 1 Packing Method? It’s a basic formula for a week-long trip that suggests this breakdown:

5 pairs of socks + undies

4 Tops

3 bottoms

2 Shoes

1 Hat

Feel free to adjust that to your liking! We would probably swap one top + bottom for a cute Summer Dress or Jumper, just for fun! Here’s a link to this and more suitcase packing tips from the New York Times.
