What to pack for a weekend away

So you are going away for the weekend?  Perhaps with girlfriends or your boo or even by yourself.  Nothing can beat a relaxing mini-break.  We all need them every now and again. And by god, they definitely refresh and recharge the system.  But one question always baffles us before we go away for the weekend.  What on earth do you pack?  You want comfort but you also want to look stylish.  And will you go out to somewhere nice and need something dressy?  So many options.  Fortunately for you, The Volte has your entire wardrobe covered.  From dresses to jackets to earrings and bags.  We have it all.  And what’s even better?  You can rent items for 4 days if you are going away for the weekend but if your trip is that bit longer?  We have 8 day hire options and 30 day hire options.  This means you’ve got entire wardrobe taken care of!  Your biggest problem will be what to choose as we have so many listings.  Let’s take a look at some wardrobe basics that you definitely need.

Casual daytime dress

No doubt you’ll need something casual during the daytime, perhaps to enjoy wineries or a lazy lunch, or even shopping in a bustling hub.  We think a beautiful casual dress is perfect for this.  We have all lengths from minis to maxis, perfect for a casual daytime frolic.  Weather permitting, a playsuit works wonders too.  What’s great about our selection of daytime options is that you can dress them down with a pair of flats or trainers or dress them up with heels for a more dressy situation.  Whatever tickles your fancy, we have you covered.

If a casual daytime dress isn’t your vibe and you prefer something a bit edgier, we suggest a statement t-shirt with a pair of skinny jeans.  Perfect casual uniform to take you wherever your heart takes you.  We have a range of different designer t-shirts that would be perfect for the edgy daytime uniform.  We think pair it with wardrobe staples like a denim or leather jacket and bam, your outfit is sorted. Again, you can dress this look down or up, depending on the occasion.  We heart this look!

Casual Jacket

So you have a casual daytime outfit sorted but what happens if it’s a bit chilly?  You need a jacket.  Here at The Volte, we think a jacket is a necessary accompaniment to any outfit. Wardrobe staples like leather jackets or trenches would go perfectly with either of the above listed daytime outfits.  You really can’t go wrong.  But what about something to really spice it up?  How about something with a little bit of sequins and character? We have a range of different jackets that would work perfectly with daytime outfits depending on your mood.  Go the classic or go for something fun!  Or our advice? Go both!  Then you have all your bases covered.
