With summer just around the corner, you need to book up to that dream destination. You and your partner both deserve a romantic trip away with your other half, but often, an unfamiliar location brings the biggest dilemma — what to pack!

Considered Plovdiv, Bulgaria?

Indulge in the historic culture of Plovdiv this year and you’ll not regret it. 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.

When you’ve booked your flight, you’ll need to plan what you’re doing. Will you be heading to the world’s most intact ancient theatre or taking a trip to an aviation museum? The choice is yours.

What to take:

We all hope for sun when we go abroad, but you should always be prepared for the rain so take a coat. As well as this, you’ll need some viable walking boots for your outdoor adventures.

Equipped with a cute tee and mom jeans, you’ll be the ultimate tourist style icon. Take a backpack to keep your belongings in and a jacket for when you get cold walking back to your hotel. For the evening excursions, pull out one of your dresses and take too many selfies in the hotel lobby. Remember to opt for a wedged boot too!

Considered Krakow, Poland?

Places To Travel To Twice

For many young people in the UK, Krakow is a lucrative destination. Flights to this city aren’t too pricey either, so it makes the perfect getaway for the most romantic day of the year while sticking to a budget!

This city is all about adventure, and there’s plenty to explore in and around the city. From castles to quaint streets that promote the liveliness of the locals.

What to take:

Why not shop for a pastel jumper and pair with some flares? You can pull this outfit together with chunky boots or trainers — it’s entirely up to you!

If you’re looking to keep it simple, shop for a chic t-shirt and pair these with some knee-high boots that are suitable for walking around the city with your other half. Dressing for a night out in Krakow can be fun, but for date night itself, be the star of the show with a sequin dress and matching jacket — and of course, heels!

Considered Riga, Latvia?

If you’re the type that posts fancy buildings and elegant interior designs on Instagram, Riga is your only option. This city has so much to offer, so you better be booking those flights! You’ll need to visit some of the museums in this city and learn more about its history. As well as this, you can’t forget to take romantic strolls through the town centre with your bae!

What to take:

For romantic walks, take a denim jacket and pair with a striped top beneath. Then, pick out your favourite jeans and boots and you’re sorted. Everyone loves relaxed fashion in Riga. However, you must remember your hats, gloves and scarves for when you’re walking back to your hotel!

For cafes, you want to pull out a chic jacket that can be paired with a maxi dress. Opt for either heels or trainers! For date night however, choose a jumper dress and pair with some chunky heels. Don’t forget your faux fur panel jacket to stay on trend.
