What to Put in Your City Break Capsule Wardrobe

A city break is a great opportunity for you to experience a new place. Whether you’re travelling for a weekend or a week’s holiday, you’ll see so much and be seen by so many. So you definitely want to be looking good. There are a few staple items you should pack for your city break. Read on how to travel with style.

Chelsea Boots

Chelsea Boots for travelers

If your city break plans involves an airport, you’re going to want to wear shoes which are easy to take on and off. Chelsea boots, as well as looking stylish, couldn’t be simpler for you slip off. They’re elegant and practical. A city break entails lots of walking, so you’ll want to make your Chelsea boots have a good, thick, sole. This offers your feet plenty of support during lots of sight-seeing.

Trench Coat

New Trench Coat

A trench coat is a timeless piece; it immediately dresses up any outfit you’re planning on wearing. Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, a trench coat is a must for any city break. There is the fear of jinxing yourself: forget a coat and it’ll rain soon as you get there. You don’t need to worry about it taking it up too much room in your case. Don’t pack it, wear it. By wearing your trench coat to the airport, or draping it over your arm, you can travel in style and have more room in your case for the rest of your outfits.

White Shirt

There’s a reason why white shirts are a staple part of any man’s wardrobe: they’re so versatile and can be dressed up or down. You can wear them for a day of exploring, or wear one out to dinner to experience the city’s best restaurants. If you’re worried about the white shirt creasing on your travels, most hotels provide an iron or offer a laundry service.

Black Jeans

Black jeans, according to The Guardian, can act as half casual when you’re on holiday. Jeans themselves are perfect for day to day wear, but by packing black instead of the classic blue, they do offer that slightly more dressed-up look.

T Shirt

You can’t really go away without packing at least one t shirt. They make for great day attire, particularly if the city you’re heading off too is warm. You’ll want to pack a couple, even if you’re away for just a couple of days. It’s always good to have a back-up. You could pack one in neutral grey or white, or you could add a pop of colour to your look. You can also try your hand at the two second folding trick.


jumber for travelers

Even if you’re travelling to a warm city, you’re still going to want to bring a jumper with you. This can be for the cooler evenings or just because the hotel air conditioning works too well. This is another item which you can wear to the airport to give your case more space. You’ll be grateful for it on the plane, either for an added layer or a makeshift pillow.
