Jetting off for a summer city break is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a weekend. So, when it comes to packing, start by deciding on your favourite looks, a capsule wardrobe if you will, of easy, versatile and uncomplicated pieces that can take you from day to night and everywhere in between. At Very Stylish Girl, we recommend a neutral colour palette – think beige, brown, cream and ivory – and build the rest of your outfits around these colours. Still need a bit of help deciding? We have done some of the guesswork for you by selecting the perfect pieces ideal for travelling light and guaranteeing that coveted summer-in-the-city look.


The Classic White Shirt
Here we have a modern take on the classic white shirt with our popular White Split Side Shirt. We love this piece
s modern styling including drop shoulders and side pocket detailing, and paired with a great pair of skinny jeans, you have a look that brings elegance to everyday dressing.       


The Modern Trouser
We love a wide legged trouser and think our Ivory White Turn Up Cropped Trousers are a perfectly chic and versatile option. Extremely wearable, these cropped beauties take dressing to a new level and are perfect for hitting the streets and seeing the sites. We like to pair our trousers with something easy like our Blue Stripe Cotton T-shirt, or even a silky piece like our Black Tie Back Blouse.  


The Essential Mac
If you are looking for a
wear with everything jacket, then we suggest our Camel Cocoon Jacket. The relaxed shape makes it the perfect piece for cooler summer days and we promise it is your best bet to work with other staple separates in our collection. 


The Versatile Dress
We love a simple dress, and we especially love ones that take you from day to night with just a simple switch of accessories. Introducing our Navy Tie Back Strappy Dress
the perfect piece for the art gallery, dancefloor and everywhere else your day and night takes you. Featuring a feminine and flirty A-line shape, this dress will be a sure-fire hit for your weekend away.


When packing for a city break, we love the versatility of single, neutral colours which allow for easy transition dressing from day to night. Casual, comfortable, chic and all available on a Very Stylish Girl, here’s to picture-perfect pieces ideal for your summertime city break. Enjoy!
