We have the essentials you need to pack for your next weekend away at the cottage, keeping fun the priority and fashion a close second. Now that summer is here, the heat gives us all reasons to escape the city to head to the cottage. You’ll want to be comfortable, cool, and casual, and we’ve got the five essential cottage pieces you can’t forget to pack for your weekend adventure.
You can still look good without being high maintenance at your cottage (or a friend’s) with lots of colour and the right easy-to-pack items. First thing’s first- you’ll need a bikini and you can’t go wrong with a punchy print like our fun and affordable Old Navy bikini. Of course, you’ll need a stylish way to get from the cottage to the lake and a cute pastel and white coverup like this Topshop one can take you from lounging, to breakfast, to the water’s edge. Flip Flops in a bright jewel hue like this Tory Burch pair are all your feet will need.
Coloured denim shorts from Marc By Marc Jacobs will be sure to keep you comfortable and will stand out in style, too. For evening, though, campfires call for outdoor adventures at dusk and your cottage staple will be this Alternative Apparel hoodie. We call ours the “favourite sweater” because it is a summer night requirement. (In addition to lots and lots of S’mores!)
