Last-minute trips are your jam—you’re the Spontaneous Traveler! The key to packing for Memorial Day weekend? Toss interchangeable, lightweight pieces into your backpack before you head out.

Stylist Tip: “Mix & match neutral hues to take the fuss out of deciding what to wear while you’re away! Just make sure you bring one pop of color to freshen up your palette
even if it’s just a bold lip!” —Lily F.
