What to Pack for All Your Summer Weekend Getaways

By Danielle Agugliaro | August 7, 2019 | Lifestyle National

The most challenging part about packing for a short trip is figuring out exactly what you'll need—space is limited but you can’t sacrifice your vacation necessities. To help you out, we found versatile and chic items that will ensure you’ll have all the essentials without compromising style.


Dome Stud Slide, Alexander Wang ($495).

Having one pair of great sandals can take you anywhere. These embellished Alexander Wang slides are not only comfortable but sophisticated enough for a night out.


Cabas Medium Striped Tote Bag, Balenciaga ($995). Neiman Marcus, Roosevelt Field Mall, Garden City, 516-368-0500

Large enough to fit a change of clothes or pair of shoes, this eye-catching Balenciaga option will be able to hold all your weekend necessities in one place.


Gypsy Water, Byredo ($62).

Look refreshed and ready-to-go by carrying around Byredo's hair and body perfume. Bonus: The spray works for any hair type without leaving in heavy residue.


Scalloped-Lace Trimmed Slip Dress, Helmut Lang ($620). Barneys New York, 660 Madison Ave., 212-826-8900

Save space and create easy-to-throw-on looks by packing staple pieces, which should include this lace black slip dress. Just add accessories.


SPF 15 Gel, Hampton Sun ($36).

If your destination is the beach, be sure to bring a bottle of protection from the sun. We love the nourishing and effective Hampton Sun SPF 15 gel, which acts as a shield from the sun's harsh rays, and still lets you add a bit of sun-kissed glow.


Crystal-embellished round frame gold-tone sunglasses, Dolce & Gabbana ($560).

Whether you're treating yourself to a beach getaway or an urban retreat, throw on a pair of stunner shades that come in the form of Dolce & Gabbana's eye-catching, embellished style.


Carry-On Spinner Trunk, Bric’s ($595). Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 5th Ave., 212-753-4000

This Bric’s trunk is structured to enable packing maximum capacity and keep everything compact, while being the perfect size for a carry-on.
