Looking beautiful with your beau this summer

‘Catch flights not feelings’ has established itself as one of the most popular Instagram captions in recent years, but what if you already have those butterflies? Then we all know spending a few days full of romance 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.

So, we’ve twisted your arm enough to encourage you to book a trip, but then there’s packing — and you both need to look fabulous when you’re there!

Riga, Latvia

Taking an unlimited number of selfies in front of outstanding architecture sound like you? If yes, Riga should be the next destination on your list. This city has so much to offer, so you better be booking those flights!

Visiting the Central Market, one of its renowned restaurants or even the museum — all great ideas, but what are you going to weart?

Packing for boys:

Although Bulgaria is a hotspot It’s likely that you’ll encounter some rain, so make sure you take a waterproof jacket with and some sturdy boots for your adventures.

A nice men’s shirt is an essential addition for any holiday abroad however pick out your favourite shorty-sleeve 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:

A flat white at one of the quaint cafes during the day — opt for a bold roller neck jumper and match with denim mom jeans, accompanied by some flat trainers and your favourite backpack.

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

Reykjavik, Iceland

Iceland is one of the most popular tourist destinations — and no wonder why.

There’s a lot you will experience in Iceland, including its frosty landscape and dark night skies. 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:

A thick winter coat is an absolutely vital commodity when visiting the Icelandic capital. 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.

However, know that you aren’t limited on outfit choice — so always pack something impressive. Shop for some thermals that can be worn beneath your usual nightlife gear.

Packing for girls:

Girls, you are no different — you’ll need a winter coat in your suitcase. Again, you 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.

Don’t panic though, although it’s not the warmest place on earth, you don’t have to keep the hiking boots on the whole — bring the heels and use them. Remember that you can always keep warm with a faux fur coat — this is something that you can keep in the cloakroom!

Krakow, Poland

Krakow, in recent years has established itself as one of the most popular tourist decisions. 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!

From partying in the main square to visiting castles and cathedrals, 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 love venturing the streets and taking romantic strolls, this city is the place to do it. Stay casual for daytime adventures with 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 it’s time to wine and dine on an evening, sport a blazer on top of a roll-neck jumper, chinos and brogues!

Packing for girls:

Wearing an over-sized shirt is almost a right of passage, and if you don’t have one, steal your baes! Pair these with some flat trainers or knee-high boots that are suitable for walking around the city with your other half.

Getting dressed up for a night out in Krakow can be fun, but for date night itself, be the star of the show with a chic dress and matching jacket — and of course, heels!

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

If immersing yourself head first in new culture is your kind of thing then look no further — you’ll appreciate the trip to Plovdiv as the historic culture 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.

We wouldn’t suggest that you arrive in Plovidv without some form of itinerary, 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:

Although Bulgaria is a hotspot It’s likely that you’ll encounter some rain, so make sure you take a waterproof jacket with and some sturdy boots for your adventures.

A nice shirt is an essential addition for any holiday abroad however pick out your favourite shorty-sleeve 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:

Remember 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.

If it’s late night dinner, evening dresses always provide you the opportunity to look phenomenal. Remember heels though!
