Make the most of the late-May Bank Holiday by planning an out-of-town escape. Forego foreign city breaks and stay in the UK – whether you opt for Bath, Edinburgh, or Brighton, these are the key pieces you need.
For days spent exploring, think practical with a stylish twist. Tried-and-trusted denim is a must; achieve a Summer update by swapping your usual dark wash for a cropped white pair. Next, add an assortment of tops, such as a cotton broderie-anglaise style and a classic Breton, so you can easily switch up your look. Finish with comfy trainers, ideal for tackling all-day walking.
We all know the UK’s weather can be unpredictable, so it’s best to pack a lightweight jumper, or two. A classic ribbed option is sure to go with everything, while a longline, linen-rich coatigan offers warmth without weight – perfect for when the breeze gets up.
Booked a nice restaurant? A midi dress offers an easy-to-pack option that’s guaranteed to have maximum impact. Opt for beautiful broderie and lace detailing for a truly elegant touch – simply add espadrilles and a denim jacket, and you’re ready to go.
The little extras
Use accessories to your advantage while travelling – a statement beaded necklace, or glittering gold earrings, add the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Don’t forget to throw in a swimsuit so you can take advantage of the hotel pool, or treat yourself to a spa day!
