A Travel Capsule for a City Break: What To Wear in Brighton

A well-curated travel capsule wardrobe will not only make travelling easier by lightening the load. It also ensures that every item of clothing can be effortlessly mixed and matched to create numerous outfits—perfect for simplifying travel!

Whether it's a weekend away or a month long holiday, having a robust travel capsule wardrobe makes every trip more comfortable. Even when I've visited a destination, like Brighton, many times before, I still create a travel capsule wardrobe. It takes all the stress out of packing; I don't struggle with what to wear each day and can focus on enjoying the trip.

This is an essential city break capsule wardrobe for autumn with suggestions for what to wear in Brighton alongside outfit inspiration and travel tips. This travel capsule will work for any destination in England—with a few tweaks—as the weather here is usually mild during autumn.

What to wear in Brighton?

Even though it's the best-known seaside resort in England, a trip to Brighton feels more like a city break than a beach holiday—and you'll need to dress accordingly! Don't expect to be wearing a beach cover-up and flip flops for the majority of your trip.

There's plenty of things to do in Brighton so outfits need to be versatile for transitioning from walking the historic lanes to relaxing on the shingle beach to dining inside one of Brighton's many restaurants all in one day.

When packing a travel capsule, choose easy-to-wear clothes that can be layered. The weather in Brighton can be as changeable as the tides. You'll need a hooded jacket, lightweight knitwear, loose-fitting clothing, and comfortable footwear.

One of the best things about Brighton is its "anything-goes" attitude. When it comes to style, don't be afraid to experiment with bright colours and bold patterns to match the city's lively atmosphere. It's the perfect destination for having fun with style and experimenting with new outfits.

A Travel Capsule Wardrobe for Brighton

Dressing for a city break in autumn can be tricky. The weather will often change at the last second and if you haven't packed the right clothes, you might end up uncomfortable for the majority of your trip.

An autumn travel capsule for Brighton needs to be flexible and versatile. Lightweight clothing that can be layered is a must along with a reliable pair of shoes that can handle cobblestone roads and shingle beaches.

My best tip for putting together a travel capsule is to try on clothes before you pack them. That way you'll know exactly how each piece can be mixed and matched to maximise the number of outfits that can be created.

If an item is too difficult to style, has to be styled in a very specific way, or can only be worn with one other item in your capsule wardrobe, choose something else instead. To maximise luggage space, clothing needs to be super versatile so it can be worn in as many ways as possible—no matter the weather.

This is a travel capsule wardrobe for a city break with suggestions for what to wear in Brighton during autumn. It's made using my current capsule wardrobe and is meant to serve as inspiration when creating your own travel capsule.
