What bag to wear for a city break? | Bag Checklist with Kate Spade

This year we have been back booking holidays more than ever. After a couple of years, of not being able to get abroad and see the world, everyone is cramming the holidays in and as we enter Autumn, it’s city break season! 

Everyone loves a city break, 3 – 5 days of evening drinks, great food and lots of sightseeing. Unlike a beach holiday where you can just pack your bikinis, you have to carefully plan out your wardrobe. Consider what you are doing throughout the day and what the weather will be like.

Looking at the most essential part of your wardrobe, we are answering the question – What bag to wear for a city break?

Our recommendation this season would be to look at the Kate Spade collection. The ultimate New York City brand, Kate Spade launched her brand to promote practically for stylish women. The brand continues to design functional but fashionable handbags with large tote styles and mini-shoulder bags in both sleek and joyful colours.

The first bag to pack would be something that you can wear throughout the day. A larger comfortable bag that doesn’t dig into your shoulder. You might even want a larger-style tote that you can wear across your body. Leather is always a timeless option but there are also nylon options which are a great alternative. This style is for the days when you need more things with you, an umbrella, a battery pack, or any essential beauty products where you need the added space.

The second bag you need to pack is a hybrid style. By that, we mean something that you can wear as an all-day bag, but that is dressy for those lunch stops and drinks with a view. It’s usually a medium size, getting in all of the essentials but that can easily be taken around with you while your living your tourist lifestyle! You could opt for a bag that has alternative straps as well if you wanted to be able to wear it across your body.

Lastly, you need the ‘out out’ bag, the plus one for those dinners, drinks and nights out! Trending at the moment is the iconic shoulder bag. Inspired by the noughties this is the ultimate shape for any dressier occasion. Our team favourite this season would be the new Sam Icon Mini Hobo bag, we just love the chunkier shape and think that is so versatile for any look!
