The hotel is booked, now it’s time to dig out that weekend bag and start ticking off your packing list. Wherever you’re headed this bank holiday weekend, we’ve picked out the holiday-ready styles just big enough to fit in your carry-on. With the hard work done, switch off and check into vacation mode.
Whether you’re getting back to basics in a rustic campsite, checking into a country house hotel or catching the breeze by the coast, there’s plenty of ways to get a little rest and relaxation in without stepping foot in an airport. British breaks come with British weather, so dressing for the elements is top of your to-do list. Our lightweight-but-cosy gilet won’t take up much space in your weekend bag, and the of-the-moment mustard shade is an easy way to add colour to your wardrobe. For take-me-anywhere mileage, look no further than our Lulworth poplin shirt. Perfect partnered with a crew neck jumper or worn alone, the delicate floral print will take you from brisk walk to pub lunch in a snap.
Next stop: Florence. Or Paris? Or maybe Seville? With a whole host of European hotspots only an hour or two away, why not make the most of a long weekend and soak up a little culture? Plenty of sights to see means you’ll be getting your step count up, so opt for our navy moccasin. Polished, heritage design meets soft, comfortable leather, and these will see you from cathedral to museum in style. Save space in your carry-on for souvenirs and pack in our timeless Bermuda shorts. Partner this spearmint style with a piqué polo for your walking tour then swap in a shirt for a well-deserved, alfresco Aperol spritz.
Victorian promenades, colourful sun umbrellas and brilliantly blue sea as far as the eye can see: welcome to the French Riviera. Take inspiration from the glittering coast with our painted stripe bikini’s white, navy and blue print. With a supportive balcony shape and a flattering halter neck, this is just the thing for reclining beachside. For a refined staple that will see you from laidback Nice to glamorous Monte Carlo, look no further than our cropped white jeans. Effortlessly stylish with navy stripes and deck shoes for a day on the boat, simply swap in our Olivia top and Anchor loafers for a little evening polish. Just add sun… and a glass of something chilled.
