What To Pack For London In Summer & Spring
Below are some of my tips for what to include in your packing list for London. Below should also give you an idea as to how people dress in London in Spring and Summer. Also look out for my winter packing list for London later in the year.
Mix Of The Styles Of Dresses You Pack For London
London weather can be a hit and miss sometimes but when you are in the city during a week or weekend when London is bathed in cloud-free sunshine, prepare for plenty of sun busking in the beautiful parks in London. Parks like Regents Park are super popular during Spring and Summer weather in London. During this time the last thing you want is to have the wrong type of clothes packed for your trip to London. So, in terms of what to pack for London, mix up the type and style of dresses you pack for London.
Plenty of linen dresses, tunic style of dresses and light knitted dresses, in addition to maybe a shirt dress or two. Varying the styles and weight of material means you are covered for when the weather turns sour. Dresses like the little green Issa dress below is knitted with no sleeves, and perfect when the weather is in between seasons.
Its warm but not too much. So you can wear it during the day as is and in the evening when the temperature drops you can add a duster coat, a little shawl or cardigan and you are good to go!
Also dress like this are easy to dress up or down. For daytime, you can easily pair it with some loafers, converse or sandals and in the evening you can dress it up by pairing it with some heeled sandals or stilettos and you are ready for an elegant evening out. Same goes for the other dresses linked below.
Pack dresses that easy to dress up or down and easy to mix up with other wardrobe items.
Pack Your Shoppers And Large Totes
As you know London weather can be up or down so when considering what to pack for London, a large tote or shopper should be at the top of your list.
Let’s face it, you will want to throw your umbrella in there, beauty items and when it gets warm you will also want to throw in your trench or mac coat so that you don’t end up holding your trench coat while exploring London. Leaving your hands free to pick up a camera and snap the city away.

What Shoes To Pack For London
I love exploring cities on foot, I also provided a walking guide and one-day itinerary for London. If you are in London, I would highly recommend taking to the city on foot. Explore the beautiful sights around Southbank. To do this, when considering what to pack for a trip to London, I would highly recommend you add a couple of flat and comfortable shoes to wear when walking around London.
We have plenty of beautiful tours around the city from the alternative tours in East London to food tours in London’s Markets all of which you will want to walk off afterwards so it highly recommended that you pack a good fitting and comfy shoe to fully make the most of the city.
Pack Duster Coats For Summer Trips To London
During the summer months or from May to September, you may want to consider packing a duster coat for your trip to London. It’s during this time that the weather is warm enough not to need a coat but the perfect time to make use of light cover-up, certainly needed for evenings when the weather is slightly colder.
Duster coats come in all shades and colours and are super easy to pair up with outfits. I have a couple of colours from dusty pink to deep and rich reds and blues. It also helps that they are also not expensive and can be easily accessorised with an outfit.
