City breaks: what do you pack?

Beach holidays are easy to pack for, as long as you’ve got a bikini and a pair of flip flops, then you’re sorted. What else do you need? City breaks however, not so easy. Madrid, Rome, Barcelona or Prague, what do you pack? City holidays need a carefully considered wardrobe. With the wrong clothing and your trip can be a disaster — blisters and sunburn whilst exploring a new city anyone? Thought not! Daniel Footwear is here to help — take a look at our essential city break packing checklist.

Cities are full of culture and history that is waiting to be explored by you. Whether it’s ancient cobbled streets or long days spent sight-seeing, there’s only one thing for it: trainers. Thankfully, we’re in the midst of a 90s revival, meaning our trainers are bang on trend, as well as super comfortable. For a glam edge to your everyday style, we love our range of Michael Kors trainers.

After a day of exploring, you’ve definitely earned a cocktail or two when the sun sets. You might want to add a touch of glamour to your evening outfit. Depending on what you have planned, you may want to take some heels with you — you can always take a taxi if it’s a long way away. Wedges are a popular choice, and they look great with both jeans and dresses.
Heels and wedges aren’t for everyone though. 

For those of you who prefer flat shoes, we sliders or Fitflop ballerina shoes, and a pair of embellished sandals too. Embellished sandals are a stylish alternative to heels, perfect for channelling that beach-to-bar look, while their added glitz adds a dash of glamour that every summer night needs.
Don’t forget to pack a pair of sunglasses – especially when you are travelling to those typical hot climates. They help you look stylish whilst protecting your eyes from the sun rays. Who doesn’t love a big pair of sunglasses? It can get extremely hot when you are out exploring a new city, partner your sunglasses with a sunhat for an instantly glamorous look. A sunhat is a timeless accessory that will shield your face from the mid-day sun, whilst making you look very chic.
For an evening, don’t forget to pack some statement jewellery to finish your look. Bold jewellery will mirror the glitz and sparkle of your embellished sandals.
Maxi dresses are a great city break staple that are cool and stylish by day, and totally glamourous by night when partnered with a pair of wedges and a chunky necklace – very boho.
When you are exploring in the midday sun, it can get extremely hot so you’ll want to dress to keep yourself cool. Something light and floaty is ideal. Cami tops, kaftans, floral playsuits and tea dresses are perfect, and totally on trend. They’ll even look great with your trainers. Fashion that’s comfortable, who would have thought it?
We also recommend packing some t-shirts to pair with some frayed denim shorts just in case you burn your shoulders. They cover up those sore burnt bits, whilst keeping you cool when you explore rest of the city.
Sun cream
The most important item in your case: sun cream. Whatever you do, don’t forget your sun cream. It can get very hot when you are out and about during the day doing activities, and you might not realise the strength of the sun’s rays. Pack a high factor to protect yourself. You don’t want to ruin your strip with sore sunburn, or even sunstroke. Be safe and apply plenty before you head out into the sun
