Summer in the city bustles with heady nights and day-time adventures, so here’s what to pack for the perfect stylish balance.

European cities sizzle in the summer with the promise of foodie delights by day and cocktail- fuelled adventures by night so you’ll need a sophisticated balance of smart and casual looks. Linen is the perfect hot-weather fabric so check out the stunning neutral tone shirts and polos by Polo Ralph Lauren and Strellson, paired with a relaxed tailored jacket by Joop!, and contemporary sandals by Ecco Shoes. Elevate the look with minimalist gold jewellery, or dress it down with a pair of tailored shorts by Boss.

Sprinkle your city-break wardrobe with liberal amounts of sophistication and effortless day/night looks. While bold maxi dresses by Guess can take you from the beach to the bar, we’re loving the subtle luxury vibe right now, with understated basics like white vests and tees paired with relaxed tailoring by Marc Cain and Karl Lagerfeld. Round the look off with strappy sandals by Michael Kors and a floppy sun hat for protection from the sun (and paparazzi, of course).

There’s no better way to kindle your kids’ curiosity for the world than a city break. New tastes and experiences call for a getaway wardrobe that’s cool and comfortable so look out for statement t-shirts by Tommy Hilfiger Kids and Lacoste, as well as the cutest beachwear by Nike. For the girls, floral dresses by Kids Around, while the boys will love smartening up for dinnerwith a shirt.
