What To Pack For a Summer Girl’s Weekend

Girl's Weekend

If you haven’t caught on already, here at Unlikely Pear, we really love travel. Whether it’s packing for a girl’s weekend getaway or a road trip, we’re all for exploring new and exciting destinations.

At the same time, though, we’re just as invested in looking good. Fashion and style are top priority over here, and that’s why today we combined our two favorite topics: fashion and travel.

In particular, we’re going to share with you what fashions to bring when packing for a girl’s weekend.

Are you ready for your most stylish weekend yet? Here are the pieces that we always recommend packing for a girl’s weekend.

1. A Playful Swimsuit

Of course, how much you’ll be poolside really depends on where you’re headed, but even in the winter months, packing a swimsuit is always recommended.

You never know, with a girl’s trip, there’s always the possibility of a spontaneous dip in the pool. You want to be prepared, right?

Our best recommendation when packing swimwear is to pick styles you’re comfortable in. There’s nothing worse than being surrounded by your best ladies, only to feel uncomfortable and insecure in your swimsuit.

Pack a style that speaks to your own personal preferences, and don’t worry so much about trends. When you’re confident in your swimsuit, that’s when you’ll really shine.

If you’re interested in one-piece swimwear, you can check out our guide on how to wear a one-piece swimsuit. It’s full of fun styles, trends, and inspiration that should have you feeling ready to hit the water, no matter what heads your way.

2. A Trendy Dinner Dress/Jumpsuit

No girl’s weekend is complete without a night on the town.

Let loose on your trip, and pack that dress that makes you feel great. Perhaps a little black dress with a plunging neckline is screaming your name? Or maybe something a little more relaxed, like a flowy maxi skirt and crop top is more your jam?

Either way, you should always pack at least one “going out” dress, in whatever style you prefer.

Having said that, if dresses aren’t really your cup of tea, you can always opt for sleek pants and a slinky top, but if you want to go for something a little different, we highly recommend trying out a jumpsuit.

A jumpsuit is not only super stylish, but it’s also easy-to-wear, comfortable, and perfectly appropriate for a night on the town with the ladies.

3. Don’t Forget Appropriate Footwear

And, of course, we can’t forget to hit on the importance of packing appropriate footwear for your girl’s trip.

In order to do so, make sure you have the full scope of the trip, and understand what everyone is hoping to do.

There’s nothing worse than packing all your heels, only to discover that the rest of the group packed sandals for a weekend at the beach.

When in doubt, we always suggest bringing one pair of easy-to-wear heels, like our Andrew Wedge Espadrille, and then one pair of comfortable walking shoes, like our Rae Sneaker.

After that, what you bring will really depend on what the itinerary for the weekend is. Make sure you’re prepared by asking ahead of time.

4. Jewelry Ties Everything Together

As much as clothing and shoes are important, we also think it’s equally as important to consider the jewelry you pack on your girl’s trip.

Nothing makes or breaks an outfit more than appropriate accessories.

In particular, we’re all about breaking out your statement pieces for your girl’s trip.

You know those over-the-top, dramatic statement earrings you love, but your husband hates? Or what about that sparkly, silver necklace that always seems like too much for a regular weekend?

Pull those babies out, and throw them in your suitcase. A girl’s trip is the perfect opportunity to really experiment with your style, and have a little fun with your accessories.

5. Comfortable Clothes Are a Must

As much as we love all the trendy, fashion-forward pieces, it’s also important to ensure you pack some comfortable loungewear for your girl’s trip.


Well, because if you’ve ever been on a girls’ trip, you most likely know that there is always downtime.

Whether that means an afternoon siesta, a night of ordering takeout with the ladies, or an informal brunch before heading home, having those comfortable pieces tucked away in your suitcase are going to come in handy.

Here are some tips on what to wear for a casual weekend brunch. Bring some of these pieces with you, and trust us, you won’t regret it.

Raise your hand if you’re now itching for a girl’s trip. We know we are! There really is nothing more fun than spending some time with your best girls.

The only thing that could make it better?

Awesome style! Pack some of the pieces listed above, and we have no doubts your girl’s trip will not only be a blast, it will also be super stylish.

Happy travels, ladies!
