If you're lucky enough to have Columbus Day off this year and are planning a weekend getaway, you're probably currently trying to narrow down the list of 50 perfect fall outfits on your Pinterest board to a more reasonable 4 (...or 6). Whether you're flying and want to avoid checking a suitcase or just don't want to haul around a heavy bag for the weekend, this is the packing guide for you.
The first tip for packing light for a weekend away is to bring staple pieces that you can dress up or down with fun accessories. For example, you could pack a pair of high waist black jeans and a cute off the shoulder top that can look casual with leopard print flats and dressy with pumps and statement earrings.
The second tip is to choose a color theme. For a classic look you could choose a color palette of cream, camel, and gold. Or if you like a more glam look you could go with black, burgundy, and silver.
We put together a weekend packing list below with four day and night looks that will give you some inspiration for how to plan your packing list this fall.
- 2 pairs of shoes (leopard flats, nude sock booties)
- 2 bottoms (dark navy jeans, girlfriend jeans)
- 4 tops (1 cami, 1 cropped sweater, 1 duster cardigan, 1 long sleeve top)
- 1 dress
- Accessories (jewelry, tortoise sunglasses, crossbody purse)
