What to Pack For a Fall Getaway—No Matter The Destination

We love a good fall getaway, but knowing what to pack can be tricky. How do you dress for the beach when summer’s over? What do you wear on a country vacation to be cozy and stylish? And what about shoes—heels? Kicks? Booties? (Picking the right footwear is always the toughest part.) Well, Jetsetters, we have the answers. Below, our must-pack fall packing list for any vacation, no matter the destination.

Jetting off to London, Milan, or Tokyo? Pack chic sneakers for blister-free sightseeing, then swap them out for quirky low-heeled pumps come evening. For an outfit that transitions just as easily from day to night, you can’t go wrong with jeans and a ribbed turtleneck or bodysuit; just add statement earrings to dress up the look. Lastly, keep your essentials safe and sound with an on-trend belt bag—we love the Furla pick below.

There’s no need to squeeze into tight skinny jeans or stilettos for a cozy cottage stay or a walk through nature. If you’re planning a countryside escape, you’ll want to slip into pieces that are easy and casual—think cotton shirts, oversized sweaters, suede sneakers, and maybe even a fleece sweatshirt for lounging. For a dressed-up look, maintain the same vibe with a flowy midi skirt, mid-calf boots, and a comfy shearling-lined leather jacket.

A fall beach vacation calls for a fall packing list mix of chic swimwear and sweaters and jackets that you can layer on in cooler climes. Cover-ups, like these striped Faithfull the Brand pants or the floral midi dress below, are still beachy but fall-appropriate. We’re also loving straw accessories— hats, bags, sandals—not to mention bold sunnies and a bottle of SPF, which is absolutely essential for a beach vacation no matter what time of year.
