With travel restrictions being lifted, we can once again soon experience the joy of packing a bag and heading off to explore new places or rediscovering old haunts. The question is... what do you put into that bag? If you're in need of some getaway wardrobe inspiration, our new summer collection has everything you need for getting out into the world again.
From short staycations, to leisurely European city breaks and those much-needed sun-soaked holidays, here's our guide on what to pack and how to style it.
For staycation weekends in the UK, you want to pack practically. A small bag with a shirt for day, a pretty top for evening, your favourite trousers or jeans for exploring and a knit to keep the chill away are all essentials.
Maelys cardi £57
A knit is a must on a UK break and the openwork knit of this super soft cardi is a great one for spring, providing the perfect level style and warmth for chillier days.
Thea t-shirt £29
Featuring beautiful broderie anglaise detailing and a keyhole buttoned back, this makes a pretty t-shirt for day and can be dressed up with a skirt and statement earrings for a relaxed evening dinner.
Gladys shirt £39
This pretty green and pink floral print shirt is perfect for spring and summer days with its sweet little rounded, pleated collar and buttoned cuffs. We love it with high waisted jeans and trainers.
