A Labor Day packing essentials guide

Ah Labor Day! The last hurrah of summer ushering in oversized sweaters, boyfriend jeans, and booties. But before we say goodbye to those summer nights, it's time to celebrate (in white, in blue, or whatever you fancy).

Looking for help packing? This year, ditch to short shorts and opt for white. Yes, you can wear white after Labor Day! At this point, it's simply just a saying and not words to live by. We are obsessed with Zara's white high-rise denim, but there are tons of options out there (as seen on our contributors below). We also chose to pack an oversized button up instead of a tight tank. Having fun is always easier when you are comfortable!

On to accessories! We are keeping it simple by packing a sun hat, a pair of sunglasses, and one staple necklace. Leave the rest behind. Your long-weekend should be spent with friend, not in your bedroom trying to decide what necklace to wear. As for shoes, we suggest packing a cute pair of loafers that take you from day to night. Of course, a solid pair of sandals is always a must (it's not fall quite yet), but it's bound to get chilly wherever you go and you'll want to be prepared.
