After wearing the same clothes everyday for a year, of course I jumped at the chance of product testing the Twelveways multifunctional travel dress. Twelveways is a niche, Canadian brand that sells one tiny dress for ‘your amazing little wardrobe’. It rolls up to just larger than a sunglasses case and weighs less than half a pound, a traveller’s dream no matter how long the journey.
Up until now, I was travelling with another multifunctional travel dress, the Limitless Dress. I’ve come to the conclusion that even though you can wear it a number of ways, the likelihood is you’ll find a handful of favourite styles and repeat them over and over. This particular dress was actually a bit bulky and heavy for the lightweight bicycle tour I was on. It is better suited to a short holiday.
The Twelveways dress has four key ways: a dress, a long skirt, a short skirt and a strapless top. You can wear these ‘ways’ in several different styles. Personally, I wear it five to six styles but the beauty of this design is that you may choose to wear it a different way to me.
Since arriving in the slightly chillier climate of the Pacific Northwest, I wear leggings, a jumper (sweater) and boots on a daily basis. Now with my Twelveways dress I can funk up my daily wear in more ways than I imagined! During the day I wear it as a skirt with my cosy vest or as a top with my very loud-printed leggings.
I can’t wait to rummage through my wardrobe when I get home and try out this dress with a pair of heels! I wonder if I can pack for a weekend away with just my handbag (purse) and the Twelveways dress? Hmm, perhaps a future challenge 🙂
So, you can choose from four colours and two styles: lime, orange, stone blue and black, and in ‘Elegant or ‘Casual’. Elegant is made from a soft polyester blend and the casual style (only available in black) is made from rayon.
I love the scallop finish on the hem, the versatility and comfort of the material and especially the label that reads ‘Made In Canada’. How refreshing!
