Yes, you did read that correctly, bank holidays are just around the corner. So that means one thing: Long weekends. As we’re so lucky to live near various short-haul European countries, not to mention blessed with gorgeous beaches and countryside in the UK, there are plenty of destinations you’ll be choosing from. You might even opt for a staycation and be a tourist on your doorstep. This of course always leads us to think about what we’d like to wear for these various sojourns. Whether you’re off on a city break, a weekend in the Peak District or just a Netflix and chill at home, there are capsule wardrobes to know about. Ready to shop your next long weekend break? Keep scrolling for the four mini holidays you’ll want to take soon…
Style Notes: For a bucolic break you’ll need to think about various weather conditions, so you’ll obviously need to pack a waterproof (although a cool one at least). Jeans, a cap, and walking boots are a must. But make sure you pack a slip dress for evenings by a fire.
Style Notes: The staycation requires the comfiest of clothing if you plan on just staying in and watching the latest season of Jessica Jones. Of course, if you’d rather get out and about and go see the local sights, then you need a pair of trainers for walking, a jumper and a fun skirt for day-to-evening attire.
Style Notes: There is such a thing as the quick beach trip–who says you can’t drop in to Andalucia for a few days? Pack a swimsuit, hat, shorts and sandals to keep you going in the day, then a jumpsuit and one dress for the evening. Simple.
Style Notes: The Euro-city trip requires a bit of pre-thought considering you might encounter rain. Bring a trench coat to ward off any bad weather but know that it’s smart enough to wear when you head to any restaurants. A skirt, T-shirt, sunnies, and a cap will keep you going during the day but throw a smart jumper on top and you’ll look ready for the evening.
