Fashionable Weekend Getaway Must-Haves for Him and Her

If there was ever a time to invest in a high-quality piece of clothing or an accessory, it’s when you have the chance to show it off, and a weekend getaway is just that. Unlike extended travel or ten days away at an all-inclusive resort, a brief two-night trip can be a whirlwind of excitement and romance, a time when you get to play tourist in a new city and look good for your partner.

But for all its positives, a weekend getaway has its limitations: you’ve got to pack light and that means choosing pieces that work with more than one look. So how do you do it? The answer is focusing on good-quality essentials that are as versatile as they are stylish.

Start with a bag

A gym bag won’t cut it when you’re aiming to impress. For men, a weekender bag is not only a worthy investment but a practical solution for short business trips, nights away, and, you guessed it, weekend getaways. A design like The Everywhere Bag from Away is true to its name and can be used in most situations, thanks to its minimalistic aesthetics.

For women, light luggage is more than enough but can be supplemented with a multi-purpose tote for the day’s adventures. Whether shopping or hitting the beach, the Plagemfillet tote bag from Italian fashion brand Max Mara is an obvious choice for its commitment to quality and style.

Find a flattering swimsuit

Whether you’re jetting off to a small coastal town or a luxury hotel with a pool, a swimsuit will undoubtedly come in handy. For a sophisticated look, toss the board shorts and pick up a pair of Lululemon trunks with a 5”-7” inseam that hug your body in just the right places.

For the ladies, two-piece bikinis are timeless and if you’re planning to soak up the sun, you’ll minimize tan lines and maximize comfort. Of course, one-piece swimsuits are always an option, too. If you want more coverage but still want to feel sexy, there are plenty of fabulous designs.

Pull together a date night outfit

To make the most of your weekend away, make a reservation at one of the nicer restaurants in town for a chance to dress up and treat yourselves. And when you do, make sure you have an outfit to match the occasion. You can’t go wrong with a nice pair of chinos and a button-down, but if you want to take it to the next level, pair them with a premium watch and loafers.

While men are safe sticking to their usual uniform of a shirt and pants, women have a little more freedom to explore new styles. For fancier wear, a dress, jumpsuit, or romper works well here. But if you’ve been limited to fewer options than normal for the weekend, don’t be afraid to choose an outfit that can transition from day to night.

Quality in fashion and lifestyle

If you want to look and feel good in your weekend wear, quality is the name of the game. When choosing the essentials, embracing craftsmanship and versatility from trusted brands will ensure you can pack light without sacrificing style.
