Summer Packing List

The Transport Canvas Weekend Bag

$148

Madewell

Weekender Bag

Firstly, you need a good weekender bag that's roomy yet still easy to carry. Choose a durable waxed canvas option with leather straps, effortless zips and interior pockets for maximum functionality.

Eloise Leather Field Bag

$395

Elizabeth and James

Cross-Body Bag

Be sure to bring a compact cross-body bag—in a neutral hue that works with any outfit—to store your daily essentials.

Durante Sunglasses

$150

RAEN

Sleek Sunglasses

Shades are a must for travel. Opt for these chic oversize frames rendered in classic tortoise or black to complement your daytime ensembles through the weekend.

Pomona Sandal

$120

Dolce Vita

Versatile Sandals

Stylish sandals in a neutral color are far more versatile than any pair of heels. You can don them with denim during the afternoon and a colorful dress in the evening.

Custom Kimono

$100

Helena Quinn

Printed Kimono

A printed kimono robe is the perfect one-and-done piece to pack. Wear it as a cover-up with cutoffs and a swimsuit at the beach then throw it over a sexy slip dress during after-hours.

Convertible Bikini

With just two single pieces of stitchless Lycra that can be knotted and tied to result in various silhouettes, this convertible suit enables you to create multiple bikinis over the course of your trip.

Red Bikini Bottom

$28

NALLA

Red Bikini Top

$28

NALLA

Wet Dry Pouch

$25

Samudra

Wet Dry Pouch

This useful pouch can double as a swimsuit, lingerie or makeup bag. The tropical print and water-resistant feature make it the perfect warm-weather getaway staple, particularly when packing your still-damp suit before heading home.

Instant Look In A Palette Beauty Glow

$75

Charlotte Tilbury

Cheek And Eye Palette

An on-the-go cheek and eye palette can be used to create different looks for any outing—without a bulky makeup bag. Blend the eye shadows, blushes, bronzer and highlighter interchangeably for a glowy face.

Hair Oil

Ouai

Hair Oil

A hydrating hair oil is crucial for keeping frizz at bay throughout the weekend. Apply through wet tresses and air dry or smooth out dry strands for a tamed, shiny finish.

Dream Turban

$20

DreamDry

Hair Turban

When you're in a rush to head to dinner from the pool, this super-soft turban quickly absorbs excess moisture so your hair will dry in half the time.
