What to Pack for a Chic Weekend Getaway

These artful accoutrements, perfect for sojourns near or far, pack a stylish punch

September is probably the most glorious month of the year to travel as the warm summer weather lingers on and the seasonal crowds begin to ebb. Now is the perfect time to book a winery tour in Napa Valley, tour the museums of London and Paris, or relax on the beach in the Caribbean. In St. Barths, where the stylesetters visit every late fall, the popular Le Toiny is preparing to reopen with a newly refreshed interior by Bee Osborn, who also crafted the chic spaces at the Cheval Blanc Isle de France. At the striking 22-suite boutique resort, reopening October 15, guests can unwind in one of two new guest villas, including Villa Nureyev which was previously the island hideaway of famed ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev. Then take in the scenic views from Le Toiny Restaurant, schedule a surf lesson at the Surf Shack, or while away the afternoon in the secluded Serenity Cottage wellness center.

Before you go, upgrade your travel attire with these luxurious accessories.
