The Checklist: Weekend Getaway
Packing for a weekend getaway requires a careful edit of your wardrobe - after all, a carryall has its limits. No matter what your destination, look to our ultimate edit of essentials to pack now.
1. The City Break
Need some city break outfit inspiration? Whether you're picnicking in the rose gardens of Prague, ticking off must-see exhibitions in Berlin or perhaps taking a midnight stroll down The Seine in Paris, look to pieces that will effortlessly move from day to night. Think throw-on-and go dresses, mix and match co-ords, a go-everywhere blazer and walk-everywhere flats.
2. The Country Escape
Meandering through open fields, sampling the local boltholes and getting cosy fireside with a good book are prerequisites to a country escape, but what about your wardrobe? Take it easy in laidback layers - a luxe bomber jacket from Frankie Shop delivers style and substance in equal measure whilst Holzweiler's slouchy knits are chic enough for venturing out as well as comfy enough for curling up. And... relax!
3. The Beach Getaway
Preparing for a sun-drenched getaway? When travelling light a multitasker is key so make breezy shirts, wide-leg trousers and staple tank tops your must-packs. Wear on the plane with your favourite flats then make the effortless transition to poolside in mere moments - with the addition of sunshine-ready swimwear from the likes of Hunza G, BOTEH and Marysia it's the last word in modern chic.
4. The Action Adventure
For the active holidaymakers out there, nothing says getaway like running off the beaten track, smashing a personal best on the bike or centring mind, body and soul with al fresco yoga. We suggest making your activewear work as hard as you do. Gil Rodriguez's sweatshirts and track pant co-ords are perfect for hikes as well as luxe lounging, Varley's breathable separates have you covered on the mat as well as the tennis courts and high performance sneakers from Salomon S/Lab are essential items that will take you everywhere.
