Chilled-out days exploring a new city? Then you’ll want to sashay around in comfort with this season’s key trend of low-waisted and hyper-relaxed jeans by Levi's and Diesel. Weather-dependent, pair them with a crop top or bralette, and a boxy shirt to layer over the top. Alternatively, a floral print dress and sneakers strikes a nice balance between feminine and functional. By night, switch it up with sleek and seductive cut-out detailing in tops and body suits by Guess and Patrizia Pepe, complemented with wide-legged high-waisted trousers and strappy sandals. Keep your colour neutral, with black, white and beige front and centre.
A wardrobe that can take you from cafe to museum to restaurant to bar is essential when exploring a new city so you need to combine comfort with style. Cue summer tailoring, which does all of the above with aplomb. Brands such as Timberland and Diesel have cut lightweight and unstructured tailored silhouettes with relaxed-fit trousers in soft pastel shades, perfect for keeping cool in the city. Dress down the smartness with a knitted tee, polo, or short-sleeved shirt by the likes of Lacoste and Boss, and bookend the look with minimalistic sneakers to keep the aesthetic slick.
Kit-carrying bags are a must on city breaks when you’re exploring by foot (keep your hands free for more shopping!) Coach and Tommy Hilfiger have made chic city backpacks for wide roaming, but keep your tech vitals encased in streetwear-inspired micro cases and crossbody side-bags by Nike, Puma, and Adidas.
