packing for a weekend getaway: SXSW edition
Whether you’re counting down the minutes till you can break free for the weekend or planning your next getaway thanks to some good weather, here’s a sneak peek into what we’re packing for our trip. SXSW style.
Must-have wardrobe essentials you can wear year-round. Perfect for our transitional winter-spring weather or jetting off to warmer climes. Next time you’re packing for a trip (which is hopefully later today) keep these tips in mind:
- light-weight and layered: be prepared for any adventure with light-weight pieces that can be layered for colder weather or more formal occasions (ie. button-ups, heathered shawl cardigan, cognac blazer)
- weekend bag: this is a cross between your backpack and a carry-on. perfect for a weekend getaway. If you don’t already own one, you should in leather or canvas. Ours is a classic Ralph Lauren navy canvas with cognac leather trim.
- texture/pattern: keep it interesting with patterns or textures for an added pop and quick ways to change up your look paired with the essentials. Hot prints for spring: plaid, tropical floral, bandana and camo.
Throw in a couple button-ups, socks, and a pair of pants (or shorts for the sartorial crowd) and you’re good to go. As we say here at W H I M, dress for a successful weekend.
