Your Ultimate Summer Weekend Packing List 

Text the group chat, book the hotel, buy the plane ticket, and say bon voyage to your 9-5 because baby, it’s a long weekend.  

We’re breaking down a comprehensive list of everything you need for your next Friday-through-Monday getaway that will even have the locals asking, “Where did you get that?”.


Don’t let bad packing happen to you and start filling that suitcase with the essentials.


We’ve all heard the horror stories of someone completely forgetting to bring underwear altogether. With these wear-everywhere packs, you’ll never be a cautionary tale.


Let’s be real, 90% of any sunny weekend away is spent by some form of water. So, the number one thing you need to make sure you pack (in multiples) is a swimsuit. 

Our favorites? We can’t get enough of the VS Archive Swim collection—it’s beachy, bohemian, and if someone says, “vintage inspired”, we’re sold. Looking for something on the sexy side? Say less—anything shine strap fits the bill with plenty of bling and added oomph. Between these two suits, your trip is off to an Instagram-worthy start.


For when there’s downtime and you still want to look chic—because no one’s dream aesthetic is sipping an Aperol Spritz in a decades-old college tee. To achieve that no-effort effort look, we recommend a coordinating sleep set. This modal duo is giving cozy-cool and the Feathersoft pair offers you a sporty take on luxe lounging.

Going Out 

Whether “hitting the town” is grabbing dinner at a local spot and being back at the hotel by 10pm or pushing the boundaries of time and space at the club, you need a good outfit. Lean into glam with an ultra-sparkly Teddy or go for something more femme with a classic Corset Top. Make it yours with the styling and we’ll see you on the other side.


Maybe you’ve planned a workout (or maybe you just want people to think you did)—either way, we’re not here to judge you, just dress you. Get the look with, you guessed it, a goes-together Sports Bra and Leggings combo that makes walking from bed to breakfast look like an Olympic-level activity.


Let’s not pretend we aren’t all rolling up to a weekend away without every skincare and makeup essential. But, if there are two we recommend not forgetting on your countertop, it’s a body oil and/or lotion and a signature scent to keep you glowy, fresh, and smelling your best.
