Whether you’re heading off to Amsterdam with your friends or taking your partner off to Paris for a romantic festive getaway – you’ll want to look and feel good at all times, even if you’re just travelling on public transport or spending the night with a drink in hand.
Pack a capsule wardrobe in your hand luggage to mix and match over the weekend:
- Flannel shirt
- Chelsea boots
- Chukka boots
- V-neck jumper
- Lightweight collared shirt
- Plain t-shirt
- Bomber jacket
And here’s how to style them, for your big winter city break this year:
You’ll want to look good and stay comfy when travelling to your destination. Airport style is all about taking your comfiest loungewear and dressing it up a bit. Straight legged joggers + a plain t-shirt and a throw over hoodie make for an easy airport lounge look.
The hoodie should keep you warm when the air con kicks in and the hood itself will keep things dark when you want to take a nap. Slip on trainers are a good choice when it comes to footwear, you can easily take them off when going through security and there are loads of easy to wear styles available.
Big city explorer
Planning a day trip to check out the sights? You’re going to need an outfit that keeps you warm but that you won’t mind being snapped in for your Insta feed. We’re thinking slim leg jeans, Chelsea boots and a flannel shirt, throw a bomber jacket over the top – check out the styles featuring detachable faux fur collars from Superdry this season – and finish with a slogan beanie. Wear an oversized scarf if temperatures are below double digits. Sunglasses keep the low bearing winter sun out of your eyes while you get around and don’t forget the backpack to keep everything close by.
Dinner and drinks
Planning a visit to a restaurant nearby, to spend the evening in? You’ll want to wear something relatively dressy but that isn’t too try hard. Those jeans will do the trick again (plus your hand luggage weight will thank you) but pair them with a lightweight collared shirt this time and wear this under a V-neck jumper. Keep the sleeves rolled up to add a casual edge and pull out the Chelsea boots again.
A city break wouldn’t be right without a big night out and whether you’re a club night lover or a wine list sampler you need a look that’s going to get you noticed at the bar. Keep the jeans on but pair them with a plain darker coloured t-shirt and throw a blazer on top for an easy, smart/casual style that should still get you in all the bars. A pair of suede chukka boots are a good call to finish things off – the lace up style is easy to wear and goes with everything.
