Budapest conjures images of old world glamor – and your suitcase should contain some surprise elements that contribute to the lively atmosphere of the city.
Sky high heels, a men’s sweater that the ladies will be begging to borrow, floral two-pieces that flatter the figure are among the pieces that should be carefully folded into your luggage.
As always, our Budapest Style Sheet aims to create a travelling wardrobe with maximum comfort for the jet set and extreme style.
Fresh florals have a place in every girl’s wardrobe and have done so for decades. Bring your pretty prints into 2017 with matching two pieces that give a glimpse of midriff. Choose your two-piece based on your body type: look for a figure hugging pencil skirt if you’re a rectangle or an hourglass. A-line skirts will balance out bodies that are a little top heavy. Match your accessories by selecting one block color to avoid your look being too busy.
A beautiful handbag that will accompany you from the jet to the jetty is an essential, and it’s always important to choose a size and style that will stay relevant throughout summer. The ivory Paris Premiere bag from Longchamp’s Spring 2017 collection is a gorgeous example of minimalist chic on its own, and when personalized with a shoulder strap and charms becomes a delightful day bag.
Sophia Webster’s delicate footwear always brings a spring to our step and a smile to our faces. We love playing with bright colors – there’s always the challenge of matching the exact shade of our sandals to our lipstick or clutch. Refresh your summer look with a spritz of color – the silver chain detailing on these heels has us in raptures.
There is space for a sweater dress in every gal’s wardrobe and Missoni’s clever use of color makes this a dream version. Mid-length sleeves and a round neck create a canvas for statement jewelry on wrists and ears. The thigh skimming hemline can be balanced out with a pair of tan wedges or flats – take your pick.
AG Jeans has read our minds – a classic tee with a nautical vibe is a surefire solution for casual days abroad. Easily teamed with a pair of well cut jeans and you have the ultimate casual outfit for the travelling gent. Throw these jeans in your case and mix it up with classic white, navy and striped tees.
Vilebrequin is one of our go-tos for great beachwear because we love that the items often translate to cocktail hour. The Solid Cotton Shirt in lemon is light, summery and looks fantastic with a pair of blue jeans or navy shorts. Roll back the sleeves for a casual vibe and to showcase your smartwatch and wristbands.
One of our packing rules for yachting trips is having a well made sweater that can be thrown on and look fantastic. The sweaters that qualify must be super soft, comfortable and stylish. This piece from Fendi’s FW17 collection ticks all those boxes and more. It’s a standout piece that the ladies will be asking to borrow on cool evenings.
When strolling the streets of Budapest, you’ll need a light pair of trainers that don’t take away too much from your ensemble. Puma has been raising the fashion stakes over the years and these sneakers are an example of how an everyday shoe can transform into a signature piece. Team these with navy or white shorts and a casual tee or polo.
