Croatia's capital is a stylish place, so if you've left anything behind - or find yourself in need of something special to wear - check out this shopping list curated by Time Out and Arena Centar. Featuring everything you could possibly need on holiday, from amazing skincare products to the coolest shades around, say hello to summer with our ultimate shopping guide.

Shoppers seeking holiday essentials head just south of the Sava to Arena Centar, one of the region’s biggest indoor shopping malls. Situated next to the city’s major sports hall where all the major games and music events happen, this giant shopping and entertainment complex hosts all the brands you know from home - and many, many more. Fantastic local stores rub shoulders with recognisable internationals, with heaps to do once you're there - you can grab a cocktail, catch a film or explore the dizzying range of options at the food courts.

If there's anything you've forgotten to pack, or if you want to pick up a sassy souvenir in Croatia, read on for our ultimate summer wishlist.

Summer tennis shorts

Stay cool this summer with a pair of light and airy shorts. These white shorts lined with athletic stripes serve sophisticated Wimbledon vibes - and they're not a wallet-buster, either.

Holiday bumbag

Gone are the days when bumbags were an uncool accessory wielded by tourists and backpackers. The '80s accessory is having its cultural moment - and for once, the fashion trend is very practical indeed. Bumbags have become the ultimate accoutrement for urban sorts and summer festival-goers. We love this camo-lined version. Pick yours up at Arena Centar.
