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 lists for any vacation, no matter the destination.
Jetting off to London, Milan, or Tokyo? Pack chic suede sneakers for blister-free sightseeing, then swap them out for quirky low-heeled pumps come evening. For a day-to-night transitional outfit to match, 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 Rebecca Minkoff pick below.

If you’re planning a countryside escape, you’ll want some pieces that are easy and casual—no need to squeeze into tight skinny jeans or stilettos for a cozy cottage stay or a walk through nature. Think cotton shirts, oversized sweaters, espadrille 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 mix of chic swimwear, plus some layerable sweaters and jackets for those in cooler climes. Choose cover-ups like these dark green Faithfull the Brand pants or the dark floral Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress below—still beachy, but fall-appropriate. We’re also loving straw accessories, from hats to bags to sandals, and of course, bold sunnies and a bottle of SPF are absolutely essential for a beach vacation, no matter what time of year.
