What to pack for a weekend away: the city

Headed for a weekend of shopping, sightseeing and dining in the city? Lucky you! Here’s your pared down, no-fail packing list for a weekend’s worth of looks.


Touring a city calls for stylish, yet comfortable, clothes – you don’t want to look like a sloppy tourist! Our strategy is to pack versatile pieces that easily transition from day to evening. Our favorite items to pack include jersey dresses that won’t wrinkle, city shorts paired with light, airy tops and white jeans paired with pretty printed tops. Be sure to pack shoes that look good, but are super comfortable since you’ll likely be doing a lot of walking. A cross-body bag is not only completely on-trend this season, but great for staying hands-free while keeping belongings close.

Don’t forget a hat and sun protection for during the day and an elegant little bag for at night. Here are 14 pieces to pack in an overnight bag to take you through your weekend in the city:
