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 120% Lino, paired with a relaxed tailored jacket by Montezemolo, and contemporary sandals by Pollini. Elevate the look with Breill brand of minimalist jewellery, or dress it down with a pair of tailored shorts by Replay.

Sprinkle your city-break wardrobe with liberal amounts of sophistication and effortless day/night looks. While bold maxi dresses by Ixos 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 Rebel Queen by Liu Jo and Pinko. Round the look off with strappy sandals by Baldinini 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 Benetton, as well as the cutest beachwear by Sundek. For the girls, floral dresses by Aniye By are fun and feminine, while the boys will love smartening up for dinnerwith a shirt by Liu Jo.
