If you have a city break planned this summer you've got to be prepared for all sorts! If you're visiting London, for example, you'll need to think about warm temperatures as well as possible rain. You'll be doing lots of walking but will want to look stylish in the evenings.

I'm wearing a stunning metallic pleated skirt with a chic black top and buttery-soft leather jacket which would be great for dinner or the theatre. All the pieces will double up as day wear: Swap the heels for slip on pumps and the top for a white t-shirt and you have a comfortable but on-trend outfit for museum and art gallery visits. A grey leather jacket is a great choice for summer when your black one seems too sombre. Wear it with jeans for day or draped over your shoulders with a dress to the theatre.

Shop the Outfit

Take one dress that can be worn to a smart restaurant or the theatre - during the day add a sweatshirt or jacket and flats to dress it down.

Relaxed Wide Leg Tencel Trousers Regular Length

Why not consider wide leg denim trousers rather than skinny jeans? They'll be more comfy and much cooler when the temperatures rise.

Lipsy Sunglasses

Oversized sunglasses are a must! Look after your eyes and add an air of mystery at the same time with large tortoiseshell sunnies.

Sunseeker Ombre Twist Swimsuit

If your hotel has its own gym or pool, take a super-flattering swimsuit and pool sliders and fit in a swim in each morning.

Stay hands-free and keep valuables in a cross body bag - you don’t want to succumb to pickpockets in a big city.

Studded Saddle Bag

A patterned pyjama suit can be worn as a smart evening outfit or as separates for day - dress down the trousers with a tunic top and wear the jacket with jeans.
