Six Travel-Friendly Pieces and the Beautiful Places They Make Us Think Of

Cure your case of wanderlust with these transportive styles.

By Madeleine Kim

Maybe it’s the weird weather or the fact that I just caught up on White Lotus, but lately, I’ve had an extreme case of wanderlust. You too? Let’s go on a journey together. I won’t be able to whisk you off to the shores of Santorini, but I can introduce you to some beautiful styles that are so transportive, you’ll almost be able to smell the ocean. Here are six of our newest travel-friendly pieces and the gorgeous places they remind us of.

1. The Brodie Top: Basque Country, France

This pastel-colored expanse of soft pinks and airy blues is dreamy as can be. And while I can’t be 100% sure, I think those white dots up on the hill are fluffy sheep. Heaven! Recreate the calm of this scene by wearing the Brodie top in meringue, which has sheer stripes that mimic the meandering lines of the Basque landscape. Complete your travel-friendly look with the Skinny Foster pants in our serene thyme shade. (Style tip: The Brodie top is sheer, so layer it over a top like the Peggy if you prefer more coverage.)

2. The Liana Top: Amalfi Coast, Italy

Vibrant blue ocean, cascading rocky cliffs, and a hint of lemon on the warm sea breeze? It could only mean one thing: You’ve made it to the Amalfi Coast. But for those of us who don’t have an adventurous Italian vacation planned this year, wearing the new Liana top in Amalfi is the next best thing. Made from our comfortable, structured 365Knit, this machine-washable scoop-neck top pairs well with jeans for everyday wear and flowy silk skirts for evenings out.

3. The Jolie Jardigan: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Strong lines coupled with bubbly curves give this Amsterdam architecture an elegant but playful feel. If I had to imagine who lives in these homes, I’d picture a successful artist who speaks four languages and knows how to reupholster a couch. Of course, she’d also dress impeccably, and her favorite M.M. piece would be our new Jolie jardigan, featuring an easy silhouette and polished lapels. Pair it with the Skinny Foster pants for a stretchy outfit that’s both chic and bicycle-friendly.

4. The Tippy Dress: San Miguel De Allende, Mexico

Between the art, the food, and the charming pink buildings, it’s no wonder that San Miguel De Allende attracts tons of tourists and expats, despite its small size. The stretchy Tippy dress is perfect for twirling through the streets on your way from sightseeing to dinner. And in our new sprinkle knit, you’ll exude lighthearted energy wherever you are.

5. The Emily Dress: Santorini, Greece

Wish you could spend a week on the shores of Santorini? Same here. But in the meantime, I’ll be channeling that Mediterranean feeling from home with the Emily dress in Santorini, a clear, bright blue. The square neckline and vertical seaming mimic the clean architecture style that Greece is known for, and machine-washable fabric means it’s no big deal if you spill a bit of that crisp white wine on yourself.

6. The Emmy Top: Santa Cruz, CA

Majestic trees, a cozy cabin, sunlight peeking through the branches—it’s basically all my Instagram algorithm serves me these days, and I love it. And when I took a trip to Santa Cruz a couple of years ago, I felt like I’d stepped into one of my mood boards. So now, I’m recreating that magical, slightly mysterious atmosphere by wearing the Emmy top in clover, whose machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant fabric would serve me well on a long walk through the pines. I’ll be pairing it with the Hockley jeans and cashmere Caro cardigan for an easy, comfortable outfit.
