It tells the story of four best friends who are separated for the summer and decide to stay connected by passing around a pair of jeans, which magically fit all of them perfectly despite their different body types.

The movie begins with the four friends about to spend their first summer apart. Tibby (Tamblyn) is staying home to work on a documentary, Lena (Bledel) is going to Greece to visit her grandparents, Carmen (Ferrera) is going to visit her father in South Carolina, and Bridget (Lively) is going to a soccer camp in Mexico. They decide to buy a pair of jeans from a thrift store, which they dub the "Traveling Pants," as a way to stay connected over the summer.

As the summer progresses, each girl faces her own unique challenges with the help of the Traveling Pants. Tibby meets a young girl named Bailey (Jenna Boyd) who helps her learn to see the world in a different way. Lena falls in love with a local boy named Kostos (Michael Rady) but faces cultural differences that threaten their relationship. Carmen struggles to adapt to her father's new family and feels like she doesn't fit in. Bridget pursues a romance with her older soccer coach Eric (Mike Vogel) but must learn to deal with the consequences of her actions.

Throughout the movie, the girls continue to pass around the Traveling Pants and write notes to each other in the pockets. They share their triumphs and failures, and learn to support each other even from miles apart. The pants become a symbol of their friendship and a reminder that no matter where they go, they will always have each other.
