Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, getting closer and closer with each falling leaf. But before you can dig into the feast and give thanks with your family and friends, you've got to take care of one daunting task: Packing.  

What you pack for Thanksgiving break can really make or break the trip. You have to prepare for all weather conditions and activities — and hopefully not forget a single thing. It's seriously a chore. Plus, that's not even to mention that Thanksgiving is an awkward four-day weekend that introduces the fairly complicated task of not overpacking. You've got to resit the urge to jam a carry-on with a week's worth of clothes and whittle down an entire vanity of makeup. It sounds impossible, but surely it can be done.

When planned with careful consideration, your entire Thanksgiving wardrobe can fit into a duffle bag or small suitcase. It's all about simplifying your beauty and fashion routines. To help you pack smart, these fashion and beauty editors, experts, and enthusiasts sharing their must-haves for an extended weekend getaway.
