The team have been working hard to bring you the best in women’s fashion with an NHS discount for your next short holiday. Here’s how to pack for a city break.
We’ve searched the best of our discounts to make sure you’re the best dressed on a three day break from Levi’s, Topshop, ASOS, Karen Millen, TK Maxx and Amazon.
Below is a handy packing checklist for you to cut your packing prep in half along with links to the key pieces to put in your suitcase.
On a short haul size matters. Without the option of Mary Poppin’s magic carpet bag here’s the how, the what and the when of packing. Time to get organised. Come on, spit spot…
Here’s the full checklist for your three day travels – adjust as necessary. This doesn’t include your outbound travel outfit, but does include the shoes. Happy packing!
ASOS Faux Leather Jacket
This faux leather look biker jacket is perfect for a city break. Not only does it go with everything in the suitcase, it looks cool and it will keep you warm and dry when it counts.
The jacket has some minimal studs and sleeve zips that will be a great match for our rock and roll Espadrilles below…
You’ll need two pairs of shoes in your case (and an additional pair to travel in).
JINX ME Studded Espadrilles
These espadrilles are ready for it all – from the beach to the club, with a skirt or your slim fit Levi’s (see below).
This double strap ankle fastening and studded design will go perfectly with our faux leather jacket above and the outfit picks that follow…
Outside of your travel outfit you’ll need three bottoms.
Here’s our fashion picks for the best city strides and skirts with our NHS discount…
Levi’s Women’s 312 Shaping Slim Jeans
There are a huge range of Levi’s on Amazon and the beauty part is that you can search by your waist size and leg length.
Both classic and individual, we’ve selected these slim shaping 312s in a deep ink blue.
Roll up the legs and match them with a crisp white shirt, or a stripy Breton tee and pumps.
When you need to smarten them up roll down the legs, put on your studded espadrilles or ankle boots and team them with a smart black vest top.
Topshop Linen Floral Pinafore Dress
This long length pinafore dress with split and tie belt walks the line between smart and casual with style.
It’s easy to see why it’s currently trending at Topshop. This dress lovely in the day, and as you saunter into the evening.
If it get’s cold you can throw on your super soft ribbed crew neck jumper (pictured further down this list), or team it with your leather jacket and boots for an evening of drinks and dancing.
It’s also super comfy for the flight home – the perfect time to recycle a worn outfit and still look great coming through the gate!
Denim Split Mini in Emerald Green
We can’t always predict where we’ll end up on a last minute break to the city so we need versatile outfits that look good everywhere. That’s not always an easy thing to pull off.
You can team it with a white t-shirt or a smart black top and completely alter the look with accessories.
Be the definition of the word chic in every language with the discount link below.
Outside of your travel outfit you’ll need at least three tops.
We’ve picked out some classic looks to go with your bottoms all complete with an NHS discount.
Topshop Super Soft Rib Crew Neck Jumper
This Super Soft Rib Crew Neck is a pretty piece of cosy luxury from Topshop.
It looks great over Levi’s with a white t-shirt, wrapped around your waste when the weather changes, or over a dress.
Keep yourself warm when the aircon gets too much on the plane journey home and keep your cool too!
Topshop Short Sleeve Scallop T-Shirt
Keep the classic theme running with this long bell sleeved tailored shirt (pictured below) in Ivory.
Topshop Ivory Self-Stripe Shirt
Versatile pieces like this will give you plenty of variety and ultra light packing! This shirt is timeless but it comes with some stand out features (those sleeves) to get heads turning.
With some clever choices such as this you can always squeeze a few extra vests and tees in too.
Paul Costelloe Grey & Brown Hardshell Spinner Suitcase
Girls on tour need a bag on wheels and this Paul Costelloe Grey & Brown Hardshell Spinner Suitcase should you need to give the world a twirl.
TK Maxx is the best place to find high end brand luggage at a fraction of the cost.
The stats on the Medium version of this Hardshell Spinner Suitcase suitcase are just right for a short trip measuring in at H: 66cm W: 43cm D: 24cm. Make sure you check your baggage allowance and suitcase sizes with your airline before you travel.
