About two and a half years ago I made my first New York City packing list, and to this day it is one of my most popular posts to date still getting a ton of daily visits. Since New York is one  of the top vacation destinations in the world and I get frequent requests for it I figured it was time to update it.

New York is one of the fashion capitals of the world, but it is also one of those anything goes cities. You can pretty much get away with wearing whatever the hell you want there and no one will look twice, (well, they may but it won’t shock them).

For 5 days you don’t really need that much honestly:

  • 3 shirts
  • 3 sweaters
  • 1 pair of jeans
  • 1 pair of dark jeans (or another style of pants like these)
  • A dress that can be dressed up or down,
  • Jacket
  • Accessories like a couple of scarves for accessories (make at least one a print/colourful and one neutral), a hat, and sunnies.
  • 1-2 purses
  • 2 pairs of shoes. A casual, comfortable pair, and a dressier style (maybe a dressy flat, or flat boot). I like and can walk absolutely fine in a kitten heel though, and I am totally a non heel person. Plus, the heel will look good with the dress.

That should be more than enough, so these pieces plus bras, socks, underwear, and pyjamas will easily fit into a weekender bag because you will be wearing some of the above pieces for travel. As for weekender bags I have this one in grey that I like, and fits a lot of stuff. There are some more styles I like below.

The outfit options for this list will be in the next post.

Do you have a favourite weekender bag?
