Dear Anne, I’ve booked a handful of low-key weekend trips upstate to escape the craziness of city life. But here’s what’s holding me back from looking forward to my cabin the woods: My sweaters and sweats have seen better days, and I don’t want to invest too much time or cash in shopping for loungewear. What are my safest bets for polished, go-anywhere pieces that also work for lounging around? —Gillian M.
Dear Gillian, It really doesn’t get much better than a lazy fall getaway. I can picture it now: sleeping till noon, cuddling up to watch the docuseries you’ve been saving for a rainy day, long walks in the woods—it’s heaven. In terms of packing, here’s a good place to start: mountain-chic sweaters, pretty underpinnings, and wear-all-day pants (in other words, pajamas that double as pants). Honestly, it doesn’t take much to steer clear of sloppy even if you’re on a mission to do nothing at all.
