Chic Weekend Getaway Outfits for Summer

Summer is the perfect time to plan a weekend trip to your favorite destination. Whether you love enjoying summer nightlife during a weekend stay in the city or retreating to a quaint town for some much-needed rest and relaxation, the perfect vacation clothes make a big impact on your overall experience. That’s why packing for your destination is key.

Before you start packing, consider a few things about your trip. For example, what kind of activities do you have planned? If you’re heading to a mountain town, you’ll probably need different attire than if you’re heading to a beachside resort. To help you get started, we’ve collected a treasure trove of chic weekend getaway outfits for summer. 

Beach Getaway

If your idea of summer fun is being whisked away to a seaside resort, then you’re probably in need of casual weekend away outfits. There are a few key items you should always have on hand so you can really enjoy your stay. For instance, bring a few different bathing suits with you. That way you have a few options for basking in the sun and surf. 

When you want swimwear that’s slimming and stunning, bring along our Moto Chic Daryl Swimsuit. The faux-leather adjustable straps give this one piece an unexpected design detail, and the all-over slimming control flatters your shape.

On more laid-back days, our Star Studded Gabby Swimsuit is a super comfortable option, on or off the beach. The unique romper style design of this one piece creates the perfect versatile coverage. You can go from the cabana bar to the shoreline and back again without the need for a cover up. 

Also consider what you’ll be wearing when you’re taking a break from soaking up sun rays. Summer dresses are often a key part of weekend getaway outfits, especially if you’re traveling to a tropical locale. Styles made from lightweight cotton-blend material like our Easy A-line Maxi Dress have carefree charm and feel great against your sun-kissed skin. Of course, you really can’t have a beach vacation without a great pair of sandals, like our Embellished Slide Sandals, a big beach bag like our Ikat Print Tote, or a pair of sunnies like our Black and Gold Sunglasses.

Mountain Escape

Sometimes, communing with nature recharges your energy. If a mountain retreat is more your speed, you’ll need some sporty but chic vacation clothes. Shorts are a must, and our Zenergy® 7” UPF Shorts are the perfect pair for all your outdoor activities. These bottoms are made with UPF fabric that protects against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, so you can take the long hiking trail without worrying about getting too much sun. Adding our Zenergy® UPF Long Sleeve Shirt gives you extra protection and bonus style. 

You’ll also need some ultra-comfy loungewear in case you just want to curl up on the couch and catch up on your book club reading. Our Zenergy® Mixed Mesh Tunic helps you relax in soft, lightweight French terry fabric. Pair it with our Zenergy® Drawstring Cropped Joggers and the hours of relaxation will just fly by.

Weekend in the City

When you’re dreaming of city lights, it’s time for a sightseeing trip. Taking a drive or a flight to one of the major cities near you can be a welcome change of pace. Your clothes should be able to keep up with you, though. Choosing versatile looks that can go from day-to-night and have the option for layering is crucial to for style and comfort. 

Our Pima Cotton Everyday Tee checks off both boxes. It comes in a range of summer colors, and it’s made from super soft Pima cotton. Plus, this tee is perfect for layering underneath our Dress Topper Cropped Jean Jacket. We love to finish this look off with our DefineMe Denim White Crops. These cropped jeans can easily go from an afternoon walking tour to an after-dinner wine bar. 

Summer Nightlife

Summertime is a great season for getting out and experiencing some nightlife. When you’re itching for some fun as the sun goes down, you need an outfit that has just the right vibe. That’s why white is a summer favorite. It’s cool, it’s relaxed, and it’s sophisticated—without looking stuffy. A crisp, fresh white cotton dress like our Flutter Sleeve Midi Dress has that classic summer style and the breathability of a lightweight fabric. Give your look a little character and add our Sun Hat.

Also keep in mind that afterhours attire doesn’t have to be flashy. Adding a piece to your ensemble that has just a hint of glam like our Linen-Blend Embellished Tie-Front Top goes a long way. Easily complete this look when you add our White Linen Blend Button Hem Crops and our Beaded T-Strap Sandals. As far as weekend getaway outfits go, this ensemble should go to the top of the pile.
