There is no heter to wait and wear the clothing after Tisha B'Av because the problem is not just in the wearing but in the laundering itself, which is a distraction from mourning over the churban. While the Gemora and Shulchan Aruch permit one who only owns a single garment to wash it even the week of Tisha B'Av, the Poskim explain that this only applies to an undergarment. However, under your circumstances where you are traveling the day after Tisha B'Av, you may be lenient and launder the clothing the night following the fast even though usually laundry may not be washed until noon of the following day.
