Stay on-trend on your couples’ getaway this summer

Over the summer, spending a few days full of romance with your other half is a must. Indulge in each other’s company while you can, while similarly taking in as much of the culture as you can. At this stage your young and taking on the world is what you need to be doing. 

Then it comes to the packing — and you both need to look fabulous when you’re there!

Krakow, Poland

Krakow has grown in popularity in recent years. Hotels can be booked without breaking the bank, so it makes the perfect getaway for the most romantic day of the year while sticking to a budget!

Whether you’re up for a party or some exploring, you’ll be surprised at just how much this city has to offer, so make sure you have enough time to explore everything.

Packing for boys:

If you want to keep it casual for daytime adventures, throw on a striped tee, leather jacket and some denim jeans. You can pull this outfit together with brogues or trainers — it’s entirely up to you!

When the sun sets, sport a blazer on top of a roll-neck jumper, chinos and brogues!

Packing for girls:

An over-sized shirt is the perfect throw-on. Pair these with some flat trainers or knee-high boots that are suitable for walking around the city with your other half.

Dress up for date night with a chic dress and matching jacket — and of course, heels!

Reykjavik, Iceland 

Another destination that has become more popular with tourists is Iceland, and it’s clear to see why.

The things you can see and do are endless in Iceland. As well as this, you might enjoy taking a relaxing spa day to another level by visiting the Blue Lagoon. There’s no denying that the climate in the Nordic country is extremely different to our own, so what should you wear?

Packing for boys:

Wrapping up is necessary so bring a thick coat. Rock bright hues that will make you stand out against the snowy backdrop when venturing outside — such as the Golden Circle tour. Hiking boots are also essential on this trip, especially if you’re moving outside of the city centre.

Keep in mind practicality when you’re packing. Shop for some thermals that can be worn beneath your usual nightlife gear.

Packing for girls:

A winter coat is again a must for the females too. You’ll want to opt for something bright that will make you the star of the show when in Reykjavik. Thermals and hiking boots are a must for external trips. 

Although it’s chilly, people still dress up over in Iceland so pack some heels. Remember that you can always keep warm with a faux fur coat — this is something that you can keep in the cloakroom!

Riga, Latvia 

If you fancy seeing some stunning architecture, Riga should be the next destination on your list. This city has so much to offer, so you better be booking those flights! But what are you going to wear?

Packing for boys:

It does get chilly on an evening, so think cool and casual. If you’re heading out to the Old City for a romantic walk with your partner, opt for a simple tee and a neutral coloured jacket. Pair with jeans and boots and you’re sorted. 

Dressing fairly informal is a theme in Riga you’ll recognise fairly quickly. But you must remember your hats, gloves and scarves for when you’re walking back to your hotel!

Packing for girls:

Planning to head to a few of the cafes? Opt for a bold roller neck jumper and match with denim mom jeans, accompanied by some flat trainers and your favourite backpack. 

On an evening however, choose one of your favourite dresses and pair with some chunky heels and wear a faux fur panel jacket to stay on trend.

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

The historic culture here is integral to the daily lives of the locals. But don’t think that history is all Plovdiv has to offer, as there is a great modern scene that is waiting for your arrival.

Definitely plan ahead before you come to this location, as quite quickly you could find yourself struggling to pack everything in, including the Museum of Aviation or the Ancient Theatre of Philippopolis. 

Packing for boys:

Weather can be slightly unpredictable here, so make sure you take a waterproof jacket with and some sturdy boots for your adventures. 

Pick out your favourite short-sleeve shirt for the evening and pair with some denim jeans. We recommend opting for some trainers in this city — you’ll nail the smart-casual look.

Packing for girls:

Don’t forget to pack a cute tee and pair it with loose fitting mom jeans and flat trainers — you’ll look edgy enough without sacrificing comfort. Take a backpack to keep your belongings in and a jacket for when you get cold walking back to your hotel.

Planning on going fancy? Evening dresses always provide you the opportunity to look phenomenal. Remember heels though!
