5 must-pack pieces for weekend escapes

The Mini Vacay

It's Thursday, you're dreaming of Friday — on a beach or by a pool somewhere tranquil. You impulsively book a weekend getaway, but now you have to think about what to pack. We've made it easy. Pack these five things and you'll be set for wherever the weekend takes you!

a distinctive top

Make sure at least one of the tops you bring is distinctive. You want a piece you can dress up in slacks or dress down in denim, but most importantly you want something with personality. Whether it's a bright color pattern or beaded details, this is your "first impression" look that's appropriately casual but absolutely unforgettable.

a head-turning swimsuit

If you haven't already, you need to treat yourself to a new swimsuit [or two] for the summer because last season's suit just won't do. Since it's warm-weather season, splurge on a few so you have several ready to go, whether you're headed out of town or just headed to the pool.

The Mini Vacay

a showstopper

Whether it's an unexpected invitation or well-deserved reservations, you need at least one showstopper in your suitcase. Dresses and jumpsuits are one-piece wonders that can go from casual to unforgettable effortlessly. Just add accessories and go.

The Mini Vacay

the basic tee

Where would summer be without the quintessential T-shirt? Whether you pair it with denim, cargos or cutoffs, it's the easiest, most comfortable look you never have to think about. A pop of color in a hat or shoe makes it your own, so just pack and go.

The Mini Vacay

an effortless dress

Always pack a dress that can double as a cover-up, so when everyone decides to head straight to the tiki bar, you're ready to lead the way. If you really want to keep the party going, throw some wedges or embellished sandals in your beach tote and get ready to go with the flow.
