How to pack for a long weekend trip:
5 Key Essentials
When packing for a weekend trip, versatility and efficiency are key. It’s always a challenge, with such little room in your suitcase, to pick the right amount of items, to form enough different outfits during your trip. We’ve highlighted 5 key versatile pieces of clothing that will keep you stylish for any occasion and save you packing space on your next adventure.
1) Button Down Shirts
Be sure to bring along a handful of button down options. An obvious choice would be a solid or a plaid both of which you can dress up or dress down, depending on the look you’re going for. A less obvious choice would be a short sleeve with a festive print to break out for a night on the town.
2) Chino Pants
Forget about jeans for a moment. Chino pants are definitely the right choice when traveling. They are more comfortable, a lighter weight, and can be worn for both formal and casual occasions. It’s always good to have a couple colors on hand to allow for different pant/ shirt combinations.
3) Long Sleeve Henley
For the average dude a dull Hanes v-neck tee is the go-to layering piece. Henleys are definitely a step up from that. Keep it simple and rock one on it’s own, or throw a button down over it for a more sophisticated look.
4) Cozy Hoodie
After a long day of sightseeing and socializing you’re definitely going to want to wind down in something comfy. Once you hit your AirBnB or hotel room for the night, throw on a cozy hoodie a.k.a the proper attire for “Netflix and chill”.
5) Light Outerwear
This one all depends on your destination, of course. A heavy winter coat takes up a lot of space and is a pain to carry around if you get hot. We recommend you bring a light jacket or vest on your trip to make sure you stay warm during those chilly nights. Layering is essential when traveling!
