How do you pack for a long trip or relocation and not end up paying for excess baggage? By packing reversible and multifunctional clothes. When one dress/top/cardigan can do double, triple or quadruple duty you can drastically cut back on the weight. Besides, a few quality pieces that you’ll wear often is better than the fifty pieces that you’ve hoarded in the back of your closet for years.
Travel blogger Pola Henderson understands the struggles of packing for long trips and the longest trip of them all was her recent relocation to Paris! She's been wearing our pieces around the fashion capitol while working and networking.
"I didn’t quite pass the packing test before moving to Paris. I thought I had done well fitting into one 27” suitcase, until I was charged for overweight baggage at the airport. My challenge was the changing seasons. I wish I had brought more 2-in-1 pieces, versatile enough to transition my wardrobe from winter to spring. But I did bring some."

Pola looks so effortless in the reversible dress Greta that transitions easily from day to night.
In her recent blog post she says:
"I’ve been a fan of New York-based Jia Collection Reversible Fashion for a few years, having discovered the brand online. What I like is that Jia’s clothing is designed for women on the go.
The combination of wrinkle-resistant fabrics and multi-functionality (most pieces can be worn two ways, some even four) makes them suitable as travel fashion. You pack light, but still have many outfits. And they are stylish, taking a modern approach to classic silhouettes – my kind of couture."
Pola and I have collaborated in the past and thought it was time we did it again. To start this summer off on the right note, Jia Collection along with Jetting Around is giving away 1 reversible piece that will make your next trip lighter and better.
