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.

Pack savvy

Urban savvy

City escapes are all the rage this summer. You get to feel like you're away – without having to venture too far. Look sleek, savvy and oh-so-chic in the pieces we've picked for your urban getaway.

1Go-anywhere dress

The easiest – and quickest way to look pulled together is by sporting a simple yet stylish dress. We love this Alice & Olivia belted beauty ($330) in a cheerful shade of coral. Add a few accessories (chunky necklace, cuff), a great bag and you're ready for an afternoon of seeing the sights or shopping 'til you drop.

2Fashionable flats

If you're going to be pounding the pavement, heels just aren't going to cut it. The trick is to find flats that offer comfort but still have some flair. These slatted slip-on flats (, $79) fit the bill and offer style without causing pain. We're partial to the charcoal but they also come in several other neutral hues.

3Cropped cardigan

It's always a good idea to have an extra layer on hand in case the temperature drops or you end up somewhere with the air conditioning set on ultra-freeze. We love this lightweight cotton cardi in gray (Revolve Clothing, $72) that can easily be dressed up or down depending on what you wear it over.

4Statement accessory

Spice your summer city look with a look-at-me accessory that you can wear anywhere and that adds some extra oomph to your look. Just try not to swoon when you get a look at this House of Harlow silver plated cuff (, $229) featuring an ornate arrow cut-out design.
