What to pack on your city break.
A weekend city break is a great opportunity to explore a new destination and pack in as much sightseeing as you can. To save space in your case yet look stylish, it's important to pack outfits that will take you from day to night – keeping you comfortable no matter what your plans are. As a fashion retailer specialising in curvy lady clothing, we are all about looking and feeling your best with the help of clothes!
See some of our packing hacks below to make the most of your wardrobe for your next trip.
Pack versatile pieces that can easily be dressed up or down. A simple maxi dress is perfect for exploring the city during the day paired with a cardigan and heels at night, while a printed midi dress will look amazing when layered over jeans and boots.
There are many beautiful dresses for curvy women that are designed to fit and flatter so you look your best. Wrap dresses work well for women with a large bust and a curvaceous figure. It is also very easy to dress up or down making it a versatile piece of clothing. Wrap dresses highlight women's hourglass figures. The sleeveless cowl neckline draws attention to the bust and waist. The slight A-frame skirt accentuates a woman's curves by nipping in at the waist, then flaring out slightly just below your hip.
Midi dresses are also great for women with curves. The length is flattering, the waistline emphasises the smallest part of your waist and they give you that hourglass shape which really makes your curves look good. Wearing midi dresses with heels as they help elongate your legs making them look longer and more slender.
WHAT JACKET TO PACK
WHAT SHOES TO PACK
When it comes to dinner time it's important to be dressed for the occasion – a cute cocktail dress is perfect. The best thing about cocktail dresses? You can wear them for any occasion, not just dinner out. So if you're meeting friends for drinks afterwards you won't need to worry about changing!
FOR A LAIDBACK NIGHT
A relaxed outfit is the perfect outfit for those days lounging around your destination – but still staying stylish, of course! A chunky roll neck jumper is always a winner as it keeps you warm and looks great paired with some skinny jeans and trainers.
Wear your heaviest clothes at the airport: When you're trying to fit clothes and shoes into your case it's always a struggle! Save yourself the stress and possibly money by wearing all of your heaviest items when you travel to help make more room in your suitcase as well as reducing the weight.
Pack Laundry Bags to separate dirty clothes: Separate your clothes into colours and pack one laundry bag for each colour. This will help to keep your clean clothes fresh.
Bring Travel Size Toiletries: When it comes to packing toiletries, the smaller they are the better. Investing in travel size shampoos and conditioners means you won't have to take up space in your suitcase with large bottles of shampoo, skincare and deodorant.
Packing Cubes: Packing cubes are a packing hack that will change your life! They help keep everything neat and tidy so you don't have to rush around trying to find your favourite pair of jeans. Every time you open your suitcase, all of your clothes are neat and tidy which is the most satisfying feeling ever!
