10 Outfits for a Weekend Getaway

The only thing trickier than packing for a weekend getaway is fighting the urge to blow your rent money on Net-a-Porter. Somehow, your family/friends/significant other watch i
n horror as your carry-on turns into a suitcase as you inevitably end up packing half your wardrobe. We’re not judging, it is afterall, the age of Instagram and what’s an #ootd without a picture to go with it?

That being said, we strongly believe that a getaway shouldn’t involve weightlifting, whether it be in the form of a barbell or a 30kg suitcase. We’ve compiled a guide of easy outfit ideas that’ll make packing that much easier without having to compromise the chic factor.

1. Play Peak-a-boo
The subtly exposed lace bra is one of summer’s hottest trends. The best part is the simplicity factor which means you don’t have to pack much else other than a dress and a bra. Cheers to the freaking weekend which doesn’t involve a suitcase that screams back injury.

2. White Out
There’s nothing more bold or fabulous than an all white look. Add a pop of colour with a bright pair of shoes or handbag.

3. Maxi
We like to think of the maxi as the Taylor Swift of fashion – basically it has it all. This all-in-one is comfortable, easy, and chic. Oh and did we mention it takes up next to no space while packing?

4. Haute Hippie
Not only are flared pants a summer must-have, they’re also a dream come true for summer getaways. A proper solution to those days where you don’t want skinny jeans to stop the blood flow on your legs, but feel too conscious of your cellulite to wear shorts. A lightweight pair of flared pants will take you from hippie to Saturday Night Fever in a flash.

5. Mad Hatter
The oversized hat was made for the morning after. It takes your look from 0 to fabulous regardless of whether you removed last night’s makeup and may or may not still be drunk. All while shielding your face from the sun and judgement. It’s practically like a comforting best friend.

6. Fringe Benefits
Fringe reminds us of the ˜90s style beaded doors that mesmerized us in our youth in the best possible way. Swing into style in a fringe dress which is easy to pack and so on trend.

7. Shorts, Shorts, Shorts
Shorts and summer go together like Miley Cyrus and twerking. If you live in fear of looking #basic, we suggest denim on denim to keep things fresh.

8. Romp Around
Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to look stylish while exploring the great outdoors. The sensible and chic style of which we speak is the romper – all the fun that a dress offers, sans the wardrobe malfunction.

9. Cool off in Culottes
No summer style story is complete without mentioning everyone’s favourite hybrid pant/skirt (pirt?). Style them with an off the shoulder top to tackle two trends at once.

10. Dirt Off Your Shoulders
An off the shoulder dress is every It Girl’s getaway must-have. Bonus points if it involves lace or lasercut.
