Holiday Packing Guide: City Break

Looming long weekend away in Barcelona? Cheeky bank holiday in Berlin? City breaks are the hottest way to break up your summer and we’ve got your footwear sorted; morning, noon and night.

Sightseeing
Gone are the days when sneakers were the sole preserve of P.E. teachers and gym bunnies. They’re a wardrobe essential to be worn with everything from ditsy dresses to denim cut-offs. Sniffing out the local shops, perusing art galleries or simply going for a leisurely stroll? Few sights are more painstaking than a sorry tourist trying and failing to totter over cobbles in stilettos. Opt for a trusty pair of trainers instead. Our 'Orla' slip-ons will ensure things are kept chic and easy. Sling Kurt Geiger London’s 'Fabric Plum' cross body bag over one shoulder to complete the look.

Dining, Al Fresco
Is there any better way to spend a city-bound summer’s day than sitting outside, enjoying a glass bottle of ice-cold rosé and indulging in a spot of people-watching? We think not. For this you’ll want a sleek pair of slides. Our embellished 'Kash' flats are perfect for off-duty cool. Minimalists may prefer the 'Opal' mules (same idea, less bling). Pair either style with an oversized linen shirt, distressed denim and a statement day bag (the 'Tweed Kensington' in silver is an instant outfit elevator).

City Nights
Wedges are the perfect footwear via which to take a city by night. You want something that gives you a little bit of height and a touch of pizzazz, but comfort is key. The 'Monty' espadrilles are ideal if you’re a tad short on space and need kicks that’ll work around the clock. Team with a playsuit or a pair of culottes by day, and come night, an a-line midi dress. For those with a bit more room and a thing for wild nights out on the town, our gold 'Notty' wedges have summer party written ALL over them.
