Let’s get one thing straight: There is no single way to do a romantic weekend. Whether you’re into long walks in the wilderness or bar-hopping in the city, one person’s idea of a blissful escape can be another’s worst nightmare. So when packing for a weekend away with a significant other, naturally, your clothing choices will vary according to your chosen location and personal style.
Personally, regardless of where I’m going, my packing approach is firmly in the “stylish yet comfy” camp and doesn’t really deviate much from my day-to-day dressing—apart from the odd location-specific addition (think outdoorsy jacket or sofa-ready loungewear). I love a good oversized coat and pair of chunky boots, which will cater to multiple trips and keep you warm if you’re heading off during the winter months (see Lucy Williams’ cosy ensemble). I also love a high-low combo, as demonstrated by Linda Tol’s blazer-and-tulle skirt outfit, for perfect Carrie Bradshaw–inspired city break style.
So if you’re heading off on a romantic break and in need of some low-maintenance yet stylish outfit inspiration, scroll down to see my pick of the best.
