What To Wear For A Weekend Getaway

Going out of town for the weekend? Maybe you want to explore a new city or the countryside. Or perhaps, you want to visit the gallery or museum. Here are some fantastic weekend getaway outfit ideas for the fashionista.

For the Beach – When relaxing beside the sea, comfort is always the key. Pair soft, blousy pants with a loose crop top and a cool fedora. You will always love wearing this on your weekend getaway.

For a Rustic Lake House – A flowy maxi dress topped off with a denim jacket will keep you warm while the sun sets. Slip-on sneakers let you navigate tricky terrain without sacrificing style.

Floral print leggings look great under an oversized top during the day, and can add serious edge to a LBD for a night out.

Day-to-Night Dress – Pack a printed dress that’s perfect for casual daytime excursions and dressier dinners alike.

Duffle Bag – This weekender looks super-sleek, even if your schlepping your bags across the airport.

Bed-and-breakfasts can feel like homes away from home. Not only do they offer freshly cooked meals and cozy digs (that don’t resemble hotel rooms), they’re often located in quaint, little towns perfect for antiquing and exploring. Naturally, an outfit that embodies this rustic vision — chunky knits, faux fur, and ankle boots — is a must.

Going Into The Woods – This time of year is perfect for taking in the great outdoors. It’s cool enough that you won’t break into a sweat while trekking through the foliage, but not so brisk that you’ll be shivering. But, just in case, dressing in layers is always a smart move.

Sunglasses and a hat keep the rays off your face, while comfortable sneakers make wandering a breeze. Always carry them on your weekend getaway.

The Sports Match – Whether it’s the baseball or basketball court, casual look is the way to go. Skip the jersey and go with a statement varsity jacket as a chic nod to the athletic look.

A visit to the gallery – A cultured day is the perfect opportunity for splashy prints and statement jewelry. You don’t want the art to get all the attention. Balance bright pieces with black and white basics.

Blouse – A neutral-colored blouse with a longer length can truly do it all. It’s great over leggings and under sweaters for traveling and exploring, but it can also be tucked into jeans or a skirt for a pretty and polished look in the evening.

Colored Jeans – Goodbye basic blue jeans. Pack a pant in this season’s biggest color, which is surprisingly easy to mix and match but also makes a statement of its own.

Khaki Jacket – A khaki parka is the perfect topper for a transitional season. It will keep you warm and goes with any getup you have underneath it!

For the spa experience – If champagne flutes and back-to-back massages and facials sound like your perfect escape, be sure to pack a plush bathrobe, slip, and slides — there will be little need for anything else (except, maybe, a good book).

Exploring a City – Whether you’re exploring a new city or getting better acquainted with your own, your wardrobe will need the right mix of cozy and chic. Pack a cheeky surrealist sweater (perfect for gallery-hopping), a warm wool skirt, and a journal to keep track of your itinerary in style. Bring it all together with sleek but sturdy over-the-knee boots, so you’ll be equipped for all that pavement-pounding.

For the Great Outdoors – A perfectly oversized tee shirt and denim-style shorts are a go-to summer look for a reason: it works! Add a trendy fringe crossbody and you’ll be ready for whatever the day brings during the weekend getaway.

For Wine Country – Hopping in and out of barrel rooms calls for a maxi skirt paired with a form-fitting crop top and fashionable flats.

For the Casino – Sometimes, we just want to get gussied up and stay out until dawn. Time to hit up the slot machines and card tables (if you’re of age, that is) in a flirty cocktail dress and heels.

The girls’ night out – Get glam for fun with the ladies by pairing sparkly accessories with a bright dress. The lace and high neck keep the sexy hemline looking sophisticated on the weekend getaway.

Dotted Scarf – Adorn your ensemble with a scarf for a pop of print or color, which also serves as a blanket on drafty airplanes.
