Six to Sunday

If you’re thinking about a summer getaway before the season ends, you might want to consider a city escape.

Airlines have slashed prices on fares to a number of major cities (Chicago, New York, Seattle, San Fran), destinations where culture and culinary excitement awaits.

What to wear? Breezy separates in neutral colors, shoes you can walk in (and walk and walk), and a hands-free bag, of course. We looked for pieces that will seamlessly integrate into your wardrobe so that when you return home, something fun awaits!

Here are our three fave looks.
