No evening outfit is complete without a killer pair of heels so make sure you take your favourite pair that you feel most confident in. When getting ready for a night on the town you want to be comfortable yet stylish so why not take a side split skirt to channel Cara Delevigne’s look or a few pretty dresses and pair them with shoes that will show him you are pulling out all the stops!

The Sultry Lipstick

Nothing says romantic break more than a gorgeous red lipstick. This classic shade suits all complexions and will help to ‘dress up’ the most casual of outfits. In warmer climates there’s no need to wear a huge amount of makeup so simply team red lipstick with a light BB cream and a touch of mascara.

 The Little Red Dress


Forget the little black dress and welcome the little red dress into your life! Whether you go for a luxurious lace style or pencil dress, make sure you rock it in red.

With a statement style like this, you only need minimal accessories to let the dress do all the talking!

The Stylish Flats


As well as taking some heels you may also need some stylish but practical flats such as ballet pumps or sandals to pop into your hand luggage. Flat shoes will be a complete saviour when you’ve had enough of your heels so keep them in your bag in case you’re sightseeing involves a plenty of walking, of course a shopping trip is excused!

The Day Dress

So you’ve packed a fitted red dress but now it’s time to think about dressing for the day time. Loose casual dresses spotted on the likes of Olivia Palermo are perfect as you can slip them on without any fuss and pair them with bold accessories. This style is simple and looks effortless but if you wanted to add more accessories, just throw on a statement necklace.

The Super Chic Perfume

On a romantic break it’s essential that you look and feel great throughout your trip. Take your favourite fragrance as well as a new one to make you feel ultra-special. Choosing a classic fragrance such a Chanel Chance is sure to wow your other half!
