Your ultimate packing list starts with Golden Goose sneakers
Summer fun is in full swing—and from day parties and brunches to rooftop happy hours and backyard barbecues, there’s almost always something to do. But we all need a break in the action at some point. Enter the weekend getaway, a brief breather from everyday life that’s (hopefully) equal parts play and pause. But don’t over do it: Remember to keep your carry-on light by packing pieces that transition seamlessly from day to night. Our suggested checklist works for almost any quick trip, and it builds from the bottom up—starting with some of the hottest Golden Goose sneakers for sale at Italist.
Sneakers that stand out
This year’s kicks-with-everything trend makes it easier than ever to be chic on the street without sacrificing comfort. It also means there’s a silhouette for every event and taste. Chunky sneakers, or “dad sneakers”—like those from Gucci and Maison Margiela—are a hit this season, and so are the sock sneakers referenced in Cardi B’s lyrics. However, distressed low-tops with fun accents have the most staying (and styling) power. A few pairs of Golden Goose sneakers on sale at Italist fit this bill, especially the ones in fun sequins, trend-right animal prints and metallics.
Weekend trips are a break for your soul, but they can also be a respite for your soles. It’s the perfect time to swap your stilettos and sky-high wedge sandals for mid-heels. You’ll want something that works as well for taking in city sights by day as it does for going out on the town after hours. Metallic thongs like those from red carpet favorite, Casadei are a great option, as are ankle-strap sandals from Fabio Rusconi and jeweled gladiators from ASH. Slip them on and strut your stuff.
Versatile slip dresses
If there was an official dress of summer 2019, it’d be the slip dress. An undeniable nod to the 90s, this versatile style is stunning on its own, but also looks great over a fitted tee or under a button-up tied at the waist. Wear it with sneakers, pool slides, flats or heels. It’s a silhouette with limitless styling options. Bring one for each day of your trip, and you won’t have to fuss over what to wear as the days wear on.
Multi-use midi skirts
The leopard midi skirt has become ubiquitous at this point, but there are plenty of other options that’ll keep things breezy on your trip. A denim skirt with a center split is a great option, and so is a wrap skirt, like Prada’s tie-dyed number. Just pair with a simple tank or graphic tee. They also work well as swim cover-ups.
Wear a slim-fitting t-shirt under a strappy dress for a little more coverage, or top a flared skirt with a cropped graphic tee to keep from feeling too covered up. There are SO many ways to wear tees, and they give every outfit an air of ease. Whether you leap into logomania or keep things simple with solids, be sure to pack at least one t-shirt to extend your look.
Whether you’ll be noshing in New Orleans, visiting vineyards, or savoring city sights, the goal is effortless style in a lightweight getaway bag. All these items work together, so you can mix and match easily. Putting less energy into planning outfits means you have more energy for catchy instagram captions to go with the great photos you’re sure to grab and ‘gram.
