The Perfect Packing List
Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or a staycation in New York City, you’ll find all the ingredients for a chic wardrobe that is sure to set trends and turn heads at The Shops at Columbus Circle. Book a room at the Mandarin Oriental, New York for a luxurious, pampering stay. Here are eight must-haves for your weekend wardrobe.
First stop, Tumi. Designed for stylish girls on the go, the leather-trimmed Super Léger international carry-on ($575) spins with your every turn and weighs in at a featherweight 7.5 pounds. Stow all your daytime gear in the Mercer Tote from Michael Kors ($295), which has a cross-body strap for hands-free shopping. Choose the Damson shade to make your fashion mark. The Freyaa Brooch Velvet evening bag from Ted Baker London ($149) comes in black or oxblood. Toss it over your shoulder and head for the door — the city awaits!
Dressed up or down for day, you will be a vision coming and going in the Cameron slim crop pant from J.Crew ($79.50), a seasonless silhouette with sleek back-seam styling. Pair it with a silk-blocked layering tank from Eileen Fisher ($278), which looks polished for day over pants or glammed up with heels for an evening out. Splurge on a statement coat to tie it all together. The iconic Dia leopard-printed calfskin coat from L.K.Bennett ($2,495) will be your signature wardrobe item.
Slip into this Tea Rose embellished-leather skate sneaker from Coach ($275). You can hit the pavement while combining comfort with a splash of floral personality. The StudiøGrand Packable Ballet Flat from Cole Haan is the perfect transition piece: In metallic leather, it goes from day into evening. Later on, paint the town red with these Nudist stilettos from Stuart Weitzman ($398), which come in — you guessed it — red suede. The sky’s the limit in these 4.5-inch heels.
