Autumn is the perfect time to book yourself a city break. The crowds are beginning to die down, the weather is cooler, and the prices are better. Cityscapes in autumn are beautiful, with the kind of foliage that makes the perfect backdrop for your photos. When planning your perfect autumn city break, remember to pack some of the following essentials to make your trip a stylish one.
A weekender bag
The whole point of a city break is that it’s short and simple, so there’s no need for a tonne of luggage for your trip. Find an easy to carry and lightweight weekender bag that you can carry all of your essentials in. Leather styles are always popular, but you can get some great canvas and nylon versions from stores like ASOS and Accessorize.
Flat/comfortable walking shoes
A city break is going to involve a lot of exploring, and if you choose the wrong footwear – you’ll be in for a miserable weekend. Rather than spend your time complaining about your feet, take some comfortable flat shoes with you to make walking around the city a breeze. Take a look at this season’s top footwear trends and discover some great shoes that offer both comfort and style. Pack a pair of dressier shoes for the evening or some cool over-the-knee boots that are perfect for taking from day to night.
A lightweight or waterproof jacket
The weather is unpredictable at the best of times, and even the best climates are prone to some rain. Save yourself from getting wet while you explore by packing a nice and lightweight jacket that will keep you dry without being too hot. The outdoor clothing by Royal Robbins is perfect for taking on your city break to enjoy exploring whatever the weather. Don’t forget to take a scarf with you too so that you can wrap up if it gets a bit too chilly.
A floaty dress or skirt
City breaks are a great excuse to show off your style, and you’ll find plenty of inspiration for gorgeous travel style online. A floaty dress or skirt is ideal for those Instagram photos while being comfortable to walk around in as you take in the sights. Team yours with a cosy sweatshirt you can put on or take off as you see fit.
A cool slogan t-shirt and jeans
City break style is effortlessly cool, and a classic outfit involves the simple combination of a slogan tee and your favourite denims. Ideal to wear at any time of year, this outfit is the classic choice for style bloggers and Instagrammers, and it’s a classic you can wear again and again. Pack your favourites for your trip and show off your laid-back look.
