Girls just wanna have fun, and packing up for a fall getaway with your girlfriends is one of the best ways to do that. There’s something truly special about taking a little holiday with your closest friends. Whether you’re planning a weekend trip or a weeklong vacation, or, you’re headed to the city or on a camping adventure, you’re going to want to be sure you are packed properly for your fall getaway with the girls. Before you hit the road with your besties, it’s important to be sure that you’ve got everything you need. Here is our list of things to pack for your girls' trip this fall.
When planning your girls' getaway, you want to be sure you have the perfect getaway bag. Depending on where you’re going and for how long, you will want to choose what kind of bag to take. This can be a women’s weekender bag , a backpack, or a proper suitcase. If you’re planning to make a shopping trip with the girls, definitely bring along a packable duffel bag or an extra bag, so you don’t have to worry about running out of space. Even if you’re not planning to make a big shopping trip, you just never know what you’re going to find when you’re on an adventure with your girls!
We all have so many pairs of jeans in our closets, but we also have that one pair of good jeans that we know we can always rely on. When planning a getaway with the girls, you always want to bring along your reliable jeans, especially in the fall. These should feel like they fit well, are flattering, and comfortable for movement and long days of wearing. There are so many shapes of women’s bodies, and thus there are also so many cuts of women’s jeans . If you still haven’t found your perfect pair of good jeans, then it’s worth finding a pair that will check all your boxes. Expect to live in your good jeans while traveling with the girls, so be sure you find a comfortable pair to travel and explore while wearing.
Unless you’re headed to the tropics, if you’re traveling with the girls in the fall, you’ll probably want to bring along a warm sweater. Whether you’re exploring a city for the weekend or off on a camping adventure in one of the country’s beautiful national parks, a warm sweater is a must! Our forever top pick for traveling is cashmere. Cashmere sweaters are lightweight, stylish, and offer unparalleled warmth compared to other fabrics. Cashmere is also fabulous because it can be worn as a lightweight layer during warmer weather due to its breathability, but it is also literally the warmest wool out there. Cashmere sweaters also pack down small, are light to carry, and are easy to wear with just about anything. If you’re off on a fall adventure with the gals, definitely bring along at least one women’s cashmere sweater so you know you’ll have a reliable layer on hand.
You may not be planning to tear up the town with your ladies, but you should always be prepared for a night out on the town with the girls. Depending on where you’re going this fall, you’ll want to pack a dress or nightlife clothes accordingly. For example, you’ll probably pack something very different if you go to Jackson, Wyoming, or New York City. Pack a versatile night-out outfit that you can still style to wear during the day, so you can maximize the clothes you choose to pack. For example, pack a classic dress that you can dress up at night with a pair of boots and accessories, or dress down during the days with an oversized knit and sneakers.
Leggings are a travel staple for the ladies. Especially for a getaway with the girls in the fall, you’ll probably want to just live in your leggings. Bring along a classic pair of black leggings that can be worn for exploring, chilling, sleeping, and for that spontaneous workout class. Leggings are super comfortable, stylish, and staple pieces that no woman should go on a trip without. Especially during the fall months, when temperatures tend to run cool and crisp, having a pair of leggings to throw on is a great way to ensure you’ll always have a reliable basic on hand.
Look cute and feel comfortable while exploring with the gals. You will want to pack some comfy day dresses that are comfortable to wear and easy to style for various occasions. If it’s going to be perfect crispy fall weather where you’re traveling with your girlfriends, then be sure to bring layers to wear on top, such as a cardigan, and layers to wear underneath like tights. A good day dress is also versatile enough to be styled for the evening. Lounge all day in your favorite fall-perfect knit dress, then throw on a waist belt and some jewelry to dress it up for the night. Regardless, a day dress is an important piece to pack for your girls' getaway.
Don’t forget good footwear! Be sure to bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes or sneakers. And if you are planning to go out, then perhaps a dressier pair of booties or boots that are still daytime appropriate. Unless you’re really going on a glam getaway, save space in your bag and avoid packing big stilettos or bulky shoes. Instead, stick to footwear that you’re going to wear for a variety of occasions, which is going to be comfortable for walking, exploring, and traveling.
Gearing up for a getaway with the girls? Be sure to pack some of these staples so you’ll have everything that you need for a fun and fabulous fall girls’ trip.
