A girls’ weekend away is a must for any group every once in a while. It’s a great way to reconnect with friends you might not have seen in a while, as well as spend quality time with those you see regularly. It’s a way to relax, unwind, and let your hair down in a safe, comfortable environment with just your besties – no judgment or negative vibes allowed!
But a girls’ weekend is no excuse to let down the side, style-wise, and it is important to think about what you are going to wear. Obviously, no one will expect you to look glamorous and chic the entire girls’ weekend, but a combination of casual styles, comfortable loungewear, and glitzy party gear will let you enjoy the whole weekend, feel comfortable, and look amazing whatever you do and wherever the weekend goes.
So whether you are taking a last-minute cruise offer as a group or jumping in the car for a girls’ road trip, here are a few ideas to help you pack the perfect outfits, wherever your adventure takes you!
Casual outfits will be the foundation of your girls’ weekend look. You’ll want to go for plenty of comfortable yet stylish pieces that work well on their own and can be combined to offer versatility and easy, good-looking outfits. Think basic tees with printed shorts, mid-length skirts, and jeans and leggings.
You’ll want a few trendy sneakers that look as good in the market as they do in a bar, and some comfy sandals or cute flip-flops. If your weekend involves a bit of beach time you’ll want a nice bikini or one-piece, as well as plenty of sarongs, wraps, and cover-ups. The key to casual style on a girls’ weekend is creating mix-and-match ensembles so you can pack light yet always rock a unique look.
If your weekend plans include any smart dinners, formal events, or big nights out, then you will probably want to opt for a few more dressy options. Throw a maxi dress in your luggage, or a slinky cocktail number, or even a jumpsuit. Shoes should also be a little more glam, like a pair of heels, some smart pumps, or wedges. It is also worth thinking about a few smart accessories, like a nice clutch and some fancy jewellery.
It also goes without saying that you will want to dazzle when it comes to hair and makeup, so it is always worth including a touch-up kit for on-the-go edits to your look throughout the night.
Of course, a girls’ weekend isn’t all fun activities and glitzy parties. There will be plenty of time just lazing around as a group, swapping stories, catching up, and watching films. So undoubtedly you will need a few lazy, lounge-y looks that are perfect for sitting on the sofa and snacking.
Pack comfortable sweatpants, baggy, soft tops, and plenty of cosy socks, and don’t forget to indulge in a little pampering with facemasks and plenty of spa products. It is also a good idea to remember your nicest pyjamas in case the fun goes on until late!
No matter what type of girls’ weekend you plan on having, there are plenty of options for you to choose from when it comes to choosing the perfect outfits. The best advice is to always have one eye on versatility and multi-functional pieces, so whether you need to dress up or dress down you’ll be able to find the perfect look for any occasion!
