With all of this wandering, it’s important to bring a comfortable pair of walking shoes and a good pair of jeans.

During the daytime, you’ll need a few nice sweaters and long-sleeved tops to pair with jeans and your leather jacket.

For evenings out and more fancy occasions, bring slim-fitting dark or black jeans and a pretty top.

Another great alternative for a nice dinner or a nicer daytime look is a sweater dress worn with tights; pair these with ankle boots for a look that transitions perfectly from day to night.

Ankle boots with a sturdy, comfortable heel are a good compromise to fit in with Belgrade’s stylish locals, while being able to handle the cobbled streets with grace. Try this pair by Steve Madden.
