We all hurry to visit an unknown destination, it’s especially romantic when going with your other half. But, when visiting these places, we might wonder, what should we pack?

Riga, Latvia

If you’re a fan of art nouveau and attractive architecture, get yourself to Riga.

Whatever you’re hobbies and interests, there’s something here for you. Whether you’re into cars and want to visit the Riga Motormuseum or take a swift stroll through Central Market, you’re really spoilt for choice with this location. But what should you wear?

Temperatures can drop in Riga, especially throughout the winter months so be prepared! For dreamy walks through Old City opt for toasty attire such as woolly jumpers, hats, scarves and gloves! Darker hues will go extremely when it comes to posing in front the bright buildings for the ‘gram.

Don’t forget to bringa formal dress because Riga’s dining scene is world-class. Whether you’re looking for the best local, Italian, Indian or Japanese restaurants — you must look good. Pair your dress with some chunky heels and wear a faux fur panel jacket to stay on trend.

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Visit this destination before it becomes overrun with tourists! Dubbed as an exclusive city after being built around seven hills, you’ll be thrown deep into the historic culture that comes with visiting this city.

What can you do here? You could take a trip to see one of the world’s most intact ancient theatres (which is still in use 2,000 years later), or even the aviation museum that’s a hit with tourists!

When it comes packing for this destination, you need to pack something that keeps you warm but is super practical for walking — as you’ll do plenty here! Think about thermal waterproof jackets, boots and gloves.

Don’t feel the need to dress up to the nines if you don’t want to. Go for something subtle like a roll-neck jumper, jeans and some flat trainers. Take a backpack to keep your belongings in and a jacket for when you get cold walking back to your hotel.

Bruges, Belgium

There is a lot of talk about Bruges lately, but what makes it so special?

We guarantee that a trip to Bruges would be hard to beat. From visiting the Chocolate Museum to the Brewery, there’s something for all couples to indulge in.

Although not sunbathing weather, Bruges does have a warmish climate during the winter. When heading for a romantic walk around the city and stopping at cafes, you can keep it casual with a jumper dress or jeans and pumps — again, keep it lively with bright tones!

On the evening, go all out! Head out formal with heels and a sophisticated dress; for the walk home, you should always take a matching jacket to ensure you always look on point.

Rome, Italy

It’s true that you’ll never be stuck for things to do when you’re in Rome. Whether you’re a complete foodie or just love the Roman architecture, everything is second to none in this city which makes the perfect excuse to snap every experience and upload countless tourist-styled pics to Instagram with bae.

You can tick a few things off your bucket list whilst you’re here. From visiting the Colosseum to Trevi Fountain, or even indulging in your favourite Italian dishes, this will make a trip of a lifetime and your most romantic one yet.

How can you channel the local dress code? Pull off the Italian-chic look with knitted jumpers paired with denim skirts and tights. As you’ll probably be doing a lot of walking, make sure to take some flats!

Have plans to party? Pack an evening maxi dress and make sure that your other half is all suited and booted for that sophisticated and timeless look.

Barcelona, Spain

Known for its chaotic architecture, quirky locals and incredible tapas, Barcelona is a must-visit! A trip to this city will never disappoint, and you’ll likely find yourself returning on the regular!

What will you get up to? From attending football matches at Camp Nou to strolling around Park Guell, this romantic getaway will allow you to indulge in many experiences that all of your friends will be jealous of!

Throughout February and March you can expect highs of 11°C and lows of 5°C — but you can’t really complain at this time of year! Remember for your visit, pack a colourful light knit top for the daytime and a long sleeve jumper for the evenings when it gets slightly chillier.

There are many destinations to choose from — where will you go?
