Pack savvy

What's in your weekend getaway bag? If you're heading off somewhere for a little summer rest and relaxation but you're not sure what to pack, we've got you covered. Whether you're looking forward to a country retreat, urban escape or sand and sea getaway, check out our picks for must-have looks for each. Summer vacation never looked so good.

Country getaway

Country chic

Heading into the country for your summer getaway? We've put together a packing list sure to contain everything you need to look chic in the great outdoors. Whether you're relaxing by the campfire, hitting the nature trails or playing cards in the cottage, we've got your style needs covered.

1Cute cargos

A weekend in the country means comfort – but don't think you have to sacrifice fashion for function. Look cute and feel ready for anything in a pair of lightweight cargo pants (True Religion, $178). We love the side utility pockets and adjustable hem length. These will look just as good with wedge heels as they will with hiking shoes.

2Functional footwear

We fell hard for these cool kicks (Swell.com, $45) that are perfect for whatever outdoor activity your country adventure brings. If they get muddy, just hose them down! Native Shoe makes breathable, lightweight footwear that makes it possible to wear something practical but still look stylish. We're partial to the navy but they come in several other colors and styles.

3Basics with bling

Who says a rugged weekend away has to mean forgoing a little bling? Say yes to some sparkle with this casually chic tank top (J. Crew, $68) covered in sequins. The comfort and versatility of this piece make it perfect for a weekend away in the country but the added bling gives it some urban flair.

4Sporty spice

The temperature can dip at night and in the early mornings so packing a lightweight jacket will help kill the chill. We're partial to this red hooded style (Penfield, $135) with a vintage-feel and a rugged, sporty design. Layering is key and makes it much easier to transition from a breezy morning to balmy afternoons.
