What to Pack for a Memorial Day Weekend by the Sea

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Pro tip: get the heck out of NYC on long weekends. If your Memorial Day plans—which hopefully begin with a Summer Friday, the greatest invention of all time—involve hitting the seaside, might we suggest a few items to pack?

The simplest way to pack for a weekend away is to pick a simple color story and stick to it. In honor of the sea, we've selected dusty blues, sandy neutrals, and the requisite nautical stripe (or two). Click through our gallery for a breezy skirt from The Reformation, brilliant tote organizers by Bags in Progress, and a waterproof camera. Beached in your apartment all weekend? Spritz some Davines' Sea Salt Primer in your hair and fake the vacation.
