What to Pack in Your Weekender Bag for the Chicest Getaway

Wanna get away? You don’t have to plan a lengthy excursion to get your vacation fix. Sometimes a quick overnight or weekend trip is exactly what you need to satisfy your summer wanderlust. And if you want to keep your trip as stress-free as possible, packing is of utmost importance. You want to be efficient but still have options that keep you feeling chic from day into night.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help! We’ve updated The Shoppe this season with so many wardrobe pieces that are perfect for any vacation (big or small) or any destination (whether to your nearest coastline or on a totally different continent). From dresses to sandals to jewelry and bags—we’ve got it all. But for the most fool-proof weekend packing, we’ve narrowed it down to the ones that are super versatile and pair with all your other faves. In addition to what we’ve picked out, you might want to toss in your usual basics, like a swimsuit, cutoffs, and a classic tank. And of course your sunnies, toiletries, and anything else you’ll need to feel prepared and comfortable.

Even better, everything fits perfectly into our Amalfi Weekender from the Summer Curation! Not only will it help you travel light, but it also adds a little bit of glamour to your travel days. Ahead, learn more about the weekender and all the other items we’ve selected for a super stylish and stress-free weekend getaway.

Weekender Bag

The secret to a perfect weekender? Size. You don’t want it to be big or bulky for an easy, breezy getaway, but you also want it to be roomy enough to stash a few essentials. But when we created our custom Amalfi Weekender for the Summer Curation, of course we also wanted to give you a stylish option! This silky fabric and ivory shade looks chic in transit and goes with everything in your wardrobe.

Breezy Sun Dress

For daytime, you’ll want to pack a piece that can easily take you from the beach or the pool to any afternoon adventures, like sightseeing, shopping the local markets, or grabbing lunch al fresco. This white maxi dress is so light and effortless and it can be dressed down with flats or sneakers, or it can be dressed up with heeled sandals and some statement jewelry.

Chic Sandals

Don’t want to pack a ton of different shoe options? In addition to the sneakers or slip-ons you wear on the plane, you’ll want to bring at least one more pair that’s versatile, but not boring. These metallic gold slides are a great option because they’re comfy yet still a little glamorous and they go with everything from denim cutoffs to maxi dresses (see above).

Timeless Jewelry

When in doubt, stick with the classics. A pair of gold hoops, a delicate chain necklace or bangle, or some diamond studs will go with everything and can be worn day or night. But they also pair well with more dramatic pieces when you’re ready to make your look a bit bolder.

Cool Clutch

This wicker clutch works for a few reasons: It’s chic and summery, it’s neutral enough to go with so many other pieces, and the size is so packable. It’s ideal for heading out to dinner when you don’t want to carry a bulkier bag.

Date Night Dress

A little black dress is always chic, but for a change of pace, we love this camel color that’s just as versatile. The fitted silhouette and ruffled sleeves and hem make it feel flirty for fancy date night or drinks out with your besties.

A Little Sparkle

Everything feels a little more dressed up when you add some sparkle! Slip on a cocktail ring like this Art Deco-inspired one with your nighttime look to make it instantly more elevated.
