Fashion and Shopping Editor Maxine Eggenberger shared the pieces she’d pack for a bank holiday staycation, along with styling tips to get you inspired.
“Explore the wild terrain on-foot in a pair of comfortable espadrilles, worn with khaki cropped trousers and a pretty floral blouse that can take you seamlessly from forest walks to wine-sipping in the local tavern.”
“Far from cliché, Breton stripes will bestow your beach attire with an instant dose of French-girl chic. Style with rolled-hem jeans and metallic sandals, then accessorise with a portion of fish and chips.”
“Monochrome attire never fails to look polished, and this tiered-hem, polka-dot midi will ensure you’re the best-dressed guest at any summer soirée. Finish with luxe gold jewellery, and a slick of your favourite lip colour.”
From scenic beaches in St Ives to countryside glamping in the Cotswolds, the perfect getaway is just a car ride away.
