What To Take On A Scandinavian City Break
If you ignore the pickled fish and dodgy meatballs, cities like Stockholm, Oslo, and Copenhagen are effortlessly cool. To achieve the most memorable city break you need to be as tech savvy as a city break guru – creating memories with effortless selfies on fully charged smartphones, flexing your timeless city chic look. So if you’re heading there on a city break, make sure you’re up there in the style stakes and ready to explore Scandinavia, fully charged and ready to make heads turn. Here’s the low-down on what you should pack…
1. Keep charged with the Olixar Power Up Kit
Perfect for a city break anywhere in the world, this amazing bundle has to be first entry on your “to pack” list. The Olixar Power Up Kit features a travel adapter that can charge up to 4 devices via USB, and with universal usage – including European, Australian, UK and US adapters – you can use it pretty much anywhere. Two pocket-friendly charge & sync cables (suitable for Android and iPhone users) keep everyone happy and an emergency power bank boosts your smartphone, meaning you have less to worry about while walking through the streets of Scandinavia.
2. The foundation of your city break style – Navy Stripe Knitted Jumper
Always on-trend and more typically Scandinavian than a DIY table with a set of confusing instructions, the Selected Homme Navy Stripe Knitted Jumper provides an adaptable option for the day, all the way through to the night. A Denmark native itself, the Topman Selected Homme brand offers you amazing tourist camouflage, while still being stylish.
3. SELFIE TIME – Olixar Pocket-size Selfie Stick with Cable & Mirror
Once you’ve left the hotel room and you’re ready to explore your city of choice, make sure to grab your selfie stick! However foolish you feel whilst taking a picture with a metre long pole, they really do take some truly awesome photos – after all, memories never fade! Plug the cable into your smartphone and you’re ready to go at the click of a button on the handle. The pocket-sized selfie-stick also comes with a mirror for making sure your photos are always beautifully lined up, even if you’re using your rear HD camera and your flash – super handy for lunching indoors!
4. The weather is never predictable so grab your LUX Black Stand Collar Jacket
Black works 365 days of the year, and can be worn with pretty much anything – but if you’re in need of an update, this understated stand collar jacket can be worn casually as a light layer or – with its oversized utility pockets – as a unique replacement for a blazer.
5. Keep a LUX Dusty Pink Kimono T-Shirt
If you want to ease yourself into this summer’s biggest colour trend, start off light with this dusty faded pink t-shirt. With a boxier, roomier fit thanks to the kimono sleeves, this is the perfect summer tee. If you need more convincing, it’s also super soft with a luxury woven texture.
6. Get streaming with the Olixar Boombrick Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
You may have a moment back at your hotel or apartment to catch some zzz’s and relax between days of exploring, so stream your tunes to the Olixar Boombrick and take stock of the beautiful city you’ve landed in, whilst organising your next day’s adventures. With a 1200mAh battery, the BoomBrick is sure to last, and sounds great too!
7. Make it a comfortable one with Off White Lux Sport Slip Ons
Whether you’re in a suit, jeans, or joggers – smart shoes are out and casual shoes are in! Invest in these Sports Lux Slip Ons in Off White – not only are they an amazing all-rounder that can be worn with everything, but they’re also incredibly comfortable and easy to get on whilst pounding foreign pavements.
And from all of us – have a fab trip!
