Maybe the coldest time of year is getting to you. Or it could be that the imminent Hallmark holiday has you itching for a romantic getaway. Whatever your reason for wanting to skip town, these warm-weather destinations—similar in name, but each iconic in its own right—do not disappoint, whether it be for a quick weekend trip or a full-fledged vacation. Below, our packing suggestions for each sun-soaked locale.

Palm Beach

Palm Beach

Where to Stay: This oasis is a narrow, eighteen-mile isle of shoreline—so anywhere you stay is likely to have breathtaking views. That said, we suggest The Breakers. With its Italian-villa-esque façade and hundred-and-forty acres of beachfront bliss, you’ll never want to leave.

What to Do (and Wear): In the morning, shuffle around with your coffee in slip-on flats and a his-for-her silk set that doubles as a cover-up. Or serve looks in a ’70s-inspired tennis dress you can wear straight to lunch. Sant Ambroeus—which we love for its mouth-watering Milanese cuisine and gelato—is only a fifteen-minute walk from the above resort. Take our advice and start with the hamachi crudo marinated in bright citrus and mint. More for the suitcase: A bubble-gum-pink bikini makes a splash in and out of the water while a swingy cerulean minidress is great for swishing down Worth Avenue (Ralph Lauren, Tiffany, plus we can never resist stopping in The RealReal’s brick-and-mortar outpost). Later on, a nippy sunset breeze will call for a cozy knit in a pretty pastel hue.

What to Pack

Palm Springs

Palm Springs

Where to Stay: Come for the sprawling desert landscape; stay for the laid-back ambience and dreamy waterside hangs. We’re big fans of the crystal-clear pool at The Colony, along with every other enchanting detail of this Moorish-themed Steve Hermann hotel.

What to Do (and Wear): Bright-blue skies call for a straw bucket hat and plenty of SPF (read up on our favorite clean sunscreens here). You’ll want to pack a swimsuit, of course, plus a few breathable pieces—breezy satin wide-legs and their sleeveless counterpart, a twirly midi, strappy open-toe sandals—for exploring boutiques (the curation at The Fine Art of Design is, in a word, outstanding) and canyon-side eateries (Melvyn’s has top-notch cocktails and a cool Rat Pack–era ambiance—plus, the live music is always great). Speaking of canyons, don’t forget to pack a movement-friendly set for hitting the trails.
