If you’re heading off on your dream weekend getaway, you’ll need to make sure that you get your packing just right. Too much and you’ll be struggling with a cumbersome suitcase or travel bag, too little and you may find yourself short of options.
Whether you’re planning on a relaxing weekend of luxury or a bustling weekend of taking in the sights and sounds of a city, we’ve got a list of weekend getaway items that you need to have on your weekend getaway wishlist.
A great option for dressing smart casual, having a blouse in your weekend getaway suitcase can help you to make the transition from daytime to evening without having to drastically change your outfit. Depending on the temperature of your destination, you can choose a long sleeved blouse or a cutoff silk blouse with a little more breathability.
Dresses are a great option that reduce the amount of space you need from your luggage but give you plenty of versatile styling options. Since an outfit can be created from simply a dress and a few accessories, you won’t need to think about pairing separates together. Choose a mid-length or maxi dress for the ultimate in versatility from day to evening wear so your weekend activities aren’t interrupted by needing to return to the hotel to change.
Another great option for cold-weather styling, consider replacing layerwear options with jumpers for climates that guarantee you colder weather. Sweaters can be styled just as easily as blouses or other tops, but offer you the warmth you need without having to bulk out your luggage with other cardigans and knitwear.
If you have the room for separates, investing in a few key tops and trousers can be a good way to create a mini capsule wardrobe to take with your on your weekend getaway. Rather than bringing all of your favourites with you and deciding which outfit to wear as and when, we recommend planning your outfits ahead of time so you only bring as many separates as you need with you.
Finally, make sure that you bring all the accessories with you that you’ll need to complete your chosen looks! Whether it’s a beautiful cashmere scarf or a stylish belt, making room for those finishing touches will ensure that you look your best throughout your trip.
