Reliable and comfy shoes

Despite the fact that a city break is an excellent occasion to show off that great new jacket or that outfit that you have had your eye on for months, it is not the best time to invest in a new pair of shoes.   When wearing shoes for the first time or for a lengthy period of time, you can almost bet that they will cut your feet to pieces if you do not take precautions. Put on a pair of flat, adorned shoes if you are concerned that your comfortable sneakers will clash with the elegant outfit you have chosen for dinner and cocktails later that evening. Avoid wearing sandals as much as possible; while they are great for the beach, they will not hold up against the paving stones that are commonly seen in city centers.

Layer it up

Instead of wearing heavy, thick sweaters that will make you disintegrate by midday, think about wearing thin, loose layers throughout the day. Things to consider are silk camis with light cashmereย knitsย or knits, long sleeve tops beneath printed dresses, and long sleeve tops under a classicย linen dress. ย They will take up significantly less space in your suitcase and will not leave you looking like a hot, sweaty mess when you arrive. Additionally, their mixing and matching capabilities provide you with the greatest number of wardrobe options.


Taking a coat or jacket that can be worn during the day and at night will save you space in your luggage. The following are some of your best options: oversized blazers, denim jackets, and/or a classy trench coat in a neutral shade. One that is flexible for all circumstances, is lightweight enough to drape over your arm if it is warm, and can be worn to the airport to conserve crucial suitcase space would be chosen by a clever packer.


Accessories have the ability to enhance or break a look, and when it comes to a city break, they are especially important to have. They take up very little space in your suitcase and can be used to transform a daytime dress into something you can wear to go partying in an instant. A pair of dazzling earrings may transform an ordinary dress into something extraordinary, a silk neck scarf can transform a plain white shirt into something completely different, and an assortment of chunky bangles can transform an ordinary outfit into something intriguing.
