a long weekend wardrobe capsule to help you pack light

May 4, 2021

If the words “pack light” send a shiver up your spine, then this post is for you. We get it, the one thing we all want when packing for a getaway is options, and that’s what leads to overpacking. Thanks to cabi’s functional approach to style, mixing and matching has never been easier, allowing you to create many outfits from just a few pieces. You’ll never dread the words “pack light” ever again!

When it comes to getaways, you’ll want to get the most out of the pieces in your carry-on, ensuring every item will serve a purpose. To show you just how easy it is, we put together a long weekend wardrobe capsule, making eleven outfits using only eight pieces. Take a look at the outfits we created by interchanging three bottoms, three tops, and two toppers. Don’t forget to watch the video to see the final looks fully styled. Trust us, you’ll be a packing pro in no time.
