Capsule wardrobe for summer trip to UK and France!

Hi Florence! Looking for a few key pieces to bring with me to my summer trip to Edinburgh, London, and Paris. Easy pieces to mix and match throughout the trip that are current. Thanks!

How fun! There are definitely a few key pieces I would be packing. Firstly, I think a simple black dress would be really useful, I am particularly liking the drop hem style right now, like this one from COS. Longer denim shorts are big this summer and I think they would also be useful, you could dress them up and down, they work just as well with flats as they do with a small heel. When it comes to footwear, I think a simple, padded leather flip flop in black would be so versatile. As your trip includes the UK this means unpredictable weather, and I imagine some walking so I would also take a pair of trainers, my choice would be the Nike Cortez in brown.

Other pieces I would also consider would be some striped cotton trousers, I find them so useful both for travelling and for days on the go. I love this subtle logo pair by Rotate Birger Christensen. Similarly, a plain grey sweatshirt is an essential layering piece for me when travelling. Finally, for a current bag, I would opt for a useful, dark brown Dragon Diffusion (or similar) woven bag.
