People tend to fall into two categories: those who love surprises, and those who loathe them. With Valentine’s Day (and the likelihood of spontaneity) round the corner, if you identify far more with the latter, avoid any last-minute what-to-wear panics with our guide to fuss-free and stylish mini-break packing.
A casual outfit of easy-to-layer pieces is ideal for combating the February chill during a day of sightseeing in a new city. Stick to a simple colour palette (no more than three or four shades), and you’ll find this creates a capsule wardrobe of pieces that work perfectly together.
This collarless pure-cotton coat is the ultimate in versatile dressing. The neutral colour ensures it can be paired with any items in your suitcase to result in a thoroughly chic look that feels optimistically Spring-ready.
Nothing oozes casual, cosmopolitan cool quite like Breton stripes, so make sure you pack a few in your city-break case. Layer this Stripe Button Cuff Jumper with a vest for added warmth and partner with a simple pair of Symons Skinny Jeans.
Treat your feet by packing a pair of shoes you know can pass the test of a city break. Action-packed days make trusty trainers an essential.
Effortlessly switch-up your look from sightseeing to dinner date with an easy-to-wear LBD. Don’t forget to give your suitcase a quick spritz of our Blanc Eau de Toilette for a fabulously crisp, floral scent.
This Flare Sleeve Dress will leave you looking sleek and stylish. Even better, it won’t take up much room in your case.
What could be more appropriate for a Valentine’s Day getaway than some heart-themed jewellery? This beautifully simple necklace gives a nod to the 14th without distracting from your outfit.
First things first, opt for a piece of beautiful nightwear that will have you feeling special. A trip away is also the perfect time to embrace a natural look. Keep your skin looking dewy and fresh with our Skincare range, and utilise hotel downtime to indulge in a proper pamper.
The luxury of a hotel stay calls for equally lavish nightwear…because, what could be better than waking up and winding down in a sumptuously soft, lace nightdress?
Don’t waste space in your suitcase bringing full-sized toiletries. Decant them into smaller bottles or invest in travel-sized products, which make taking a less-is-more approach at the airport easy.
Don’t forget to take a look at our Valentine’s Day Gift Edit and drop them a subtle (or not so subtle) hint.
