We might be a few days out until the weekend but we're already planning our next sunny excursion. That said, the biggest thing to keep in mind when packing for a weekend away is that your pieces are versatile and interchangeable and can all potentially work together. Stick to a common color palette, like we've shown here, and when it comes to accessories, keep it simple: bring along a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses, a hat, and one stack of slim gold bangles that will go with everything. Pack some metallic sandals for daytime jaunts, and a fun pair of wedges for dinner and dancing — and whatever you do, don't forget your bikini.See all the items you need to pack and get styling tips when you keep reading.

Have you ever noticed how booking a vacation — choosing a hotel, reserving flights, deciding on tourist activities — somehow becomes easier than figuring out what to pack? The key is to stick to simple yet colorful separates that can be easily mixed and matched (creating less stress for you, plus leaving more room in your suitcase for souvenirs).
