Now that spring is just around the corner it’s a great time to start planning a weekend getaway. Wherever you plan to go on a weekend getaway, packing the right clothes is vital. You want to have outfit choices but also not be burdened with packing a whole suitcase with half your wardrobe and carrying that away with you. To avoid taking a mass of clothes away with you, here are 5 key pieces that you should think about packing for your weekend getaway.

A fun blouse
This is a great item to have in your suitcase because of its versatility. You can team it with a variety of other items such as shorts on a hot day or a smart pair of trousers for a more formal occasion. With bright colours, a must for the warmer months why not go for something like Pantone’s 2019 Colour of the Year – Living Coral!

Multifunctional shoes
Having a pair of shoes that are not only stylish but functional and durable allows you to mix and match them with multiple outfits and ultimately pack fewer shoes. Remonte shoes combine style and functionality meaning you can wear them all day if you’re exploring a new city and then dress them up in the evening for a dinner date.

Black jeans
A staple of any wardrobe all year round, but just because it’s getting warmer doesn’t mean you should put your black jeans away until September. Matching black jeans with something like a fun blouse or doing something as simple as rolling the bottoms up can open up a world of possible outfits. Remember packing light on a weekend getaway means having items that you can wear in different situations. If you're looking for a new pair of jeans, which can be a bit of a nightmare, then check out Trilogy as they have so many styles to choose from including skinny jeans, straight legged jeans, high waisted and everything in between!

Let’s think positively, it’s going to be sunny while you’re away! You’re going to need a pair of sunglasses with you. This really is an item that should be in your bag all through spring and summer. Sunglasses are often the final piece in completing an outfit, and we've all been in the situation where you get somewhere ready to explore on a gorgeous day and you’ve forgotten your sunglasses. Don’t let that happen on your weekend getaway.

A floral dress 
Flowers are beginning to bloom, and the colours are great, so why not have your statement piece for the weekend reflect the bright colours of the season. Once again this is something that you could wear during the day or on a warm evening out. The light fabrics used are great for the warmer months as well because being comfortable is as important as looking great.

What are you go-to weekend away picks?
