Start by loading your small suitcase with a pair of white jeans and denim cutoffs. Then, choose 2 colorful or printed tops that can be worn with both pairs of bottoms. You’ll also want to take a dress that can transition from day to night. In addition to your everyday tote bag, pack an evening clutch that can be worn with your dress for going out at night.

Next, choose 2 pairs of shoes – 1 pair of heels or wedges and a pair of flat sandals. It’s best to take shoes that can be interchanged between all of your outfits.  And lastly, if you’re headed to the beach somewhere or plan to be lounging by the pool, pack a swimsuit and cover-up. Remember, there’s no need to take your whole wardrobe, because if you plan on shopping, you’ll definitely want to leave extra room in your suitcase for the trip back!

Below, we’ve listed 6 major wardrobe essentials for a stylish summer weekend getaway.  You need not worry about bringing anything else from your wardrobe except for what’s listed in the below packing list. Okay, okay, we didn’t mention anything about products, hair tools, and such. Not to worry! We’ll have a follow up post later this week with essential products for a summer weekend getaway.
