We all know how easy it is to get carried away while packing for a short trip. What started off as a simple task, can very swiftly turn into a stressful ordeal. At JE London, we believe that minimalism is the key to a stress-free start to your trip.
All you need is a few transitional garments that can seamlessly take you from day to night. Instead of panic-packing and filling your suitcase with unnecessary items, try streamlining the contents of you weekend bag by limiting yourself to a section of vital, versatile items.

Before you can decide what to pack for your weekend away, first you must decide what to pack in it. For a short weekend trip, a small suitcase or holdall is all that is really necessary. If you’re looking for something a little more stylish and accessible, then opt for a holdall. But if you are looking for something sturdy and practical then a suitcase is the way to go. We also recommend taking a backpack. Not only will this keep your travel documents safe, but also act as a staple accessory.

Whether you are heading on a city break, a business trip, or a short island getaway, it is not necessary to pack every trend in the past couple of years in your case. A couple of basic but versatile items is all that is needed to travel in style. For a weekend away this might include something like this:
- One pair of shorts
- One pair of jeans
- Two t-shirts
- Long sleeve sweater
At JE London we focus on creating sustainable fashion that can be incorporated into long lasting wardrobes that epitomises luxe style, quality and comfort. Our apparel is perfect for a weekend getaway due to its versatility.

With space extremely limited in a small weekend bag, we recommend taking just one pair of shoes. But choose these shoes wisely, as they will need to go with any outfit. Our tip is to pack a fresh white pair of trainers, sure to complement any outfit.

Now you’ve packed your clothing, it’s time to pack your toiletry kit. Start with a washbag, and then stock up with all the necessary items. This might include:
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Shower gel
- Face wash
- Hair product
- Toothbrush and toothpaste
