While Napa Valley may be best known for its vineyards, hot air balloon rides, and scenic bike tours, it also just so happens to be the ideal spot for an epic bachelorette party weekend. An excuse to sip vino while outfitted in our Sunday best? Don’t mind if we do. When it comes time to pack for your ladies-only getaway, who better to take sartorial advice from than a slew of your fave celebs (namely, Lea Michele, Katharine McPhee, and Mariah Carey) — all of whom recently returned from their own California adventures. Keep scrolling for three curated looks to hold you down for a weekend of festivities, whether you’re tasting world-class wines or heading to a GNO.
What to Wear for a Hot Air Balloon Ride
“I just woke up like this,” or so Lea Michele’s head-to-toe white getup seems to say. Her flouncy strapless top, high-waisted trousers, and straw Panama hat are the definition of carefree Napa mornings.
You can’t (repeat: cannot) travel all the way to Napa without taking the bachelorette on a hot air balloon ride. Keep cool, even under the sun, with a breezy shoulder-tie blouse and ivory chambray flares that look polished without trying too hard. Round out your accessories game with It-girl-worthy add-ons, including but not limited to an embroidered straw hat, the bamboo bag of the season, and some playful tassel earrings. Oh, and don’t forget to pack a pair of sensible wedges for all the walking you’ll inevitably be doing.

What to Wear for a Wine Tasting
Our girl Katharine McPhee exudes class and sophistication with her refined pub crawl-going lewk. Her edgy pointed-toe ankle boots and choker necklace lend a tough-girl ‘tude to an otherwise ultra-femme ensemble.
Whether you explore Napa Valley’s undulating hills by foot or on a classic convertible wine tour (yup, you heard right), a timeless wear-everywhere shift is a must — especially when it comes to squeezing in photo ops with the squad. Combat potentially chilly evenings with a faux suede fringe jacket and add in Western style ankle boots for no shortage of street edge. Take style cues from McPhee by juxtaposing a choker necklace with a versatile top-handle bag (this one has a detachable strap) that leaves you free to taste as many wines as you please. *Wink.*

What to Wear for a Night Out
Y’all, Mariah’s going to do Mariah. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Here she packs on the diva-esque charm a la a majestic silk top, going-out steppers, and her signature curls (what else?!).
Don’t believe that Napa has a lively night scene? Please. Between jazz concerts, five-star restaurants (with more wine), and local bars, a top-notch going-out look isn’t up for debate. Pull out all the stops with an off-the-shoulder mustard blouse, a DDG bib necklace, and caged heels. Skip the bodycon mini for a sleek pair of tuxedo pants that allow you to maneuver on the dance floor. A bold red lip and statement clutch are obvi in order for major slayage.
