How to staycation this summer


We're all about planning every detail of our holidays, from researching the best restaurants to booking tours to the most Instagram-worthy spots. But what about all of the wonderful sites and scenes here in the UK? From punting in Oxford to 99s at the seaside and picking berries in the great British countryside, there are a number of things to do to make you realise that staying in England for your summer holiday is no bad thing at all. I mean, no limited baggage allowance should be reason enough to induce appreciation for a classic staycation. Just like jetting off on holiday, you'll want to look stylish every step of the way, so browse below for staycation style inspiration.

Look 1:

Spend a day at the seaside

Dressing for a seaside day in the UK can be a challenge, whether you're on a pebble beach in Wales or spending an afternoon by Brighton Pier, the trick is in the layering. A bright and breezy printed shirt is an ideal throw on piece that you can wear over a bikini and will keep you sun-safe and cool. Or if you plan on side-stepping the sun basking, a classic denim dungaree is a comfy staple and looks great paired with a lightweight shirt. Accessories-wise, opt for a large beach bag to tote your SPF and gin-in-a-tin. 




Look 2:

City break


It's a real treat to get a chance to explore your city, from afternoons spent gallery-hopping to discovering a new favourite spot for an iced coffee - you'd be amazed what you can find when you wander off the beaten track that is your daily commute. Or you can jump on a train and discover the sights of a new city for a day. Either way, comfort is key, so try pairing walk-for-miles sliders or a sporty-chic trainer and a statement midi dress. Keep your hands free for snapping some pictures and pouring wine with a perfectly sized cross-body bag.




Look 3:

Country retreat

Whether you visit a chocolate box village, sleepy seaside town, or historic house, the English countryside is overrun with idyllic options to explore. For relaxed, holiday fashion you need to balance comfort and elegance, so opt for a pretty linen jumpsuit and comfortable slides. A jumpsuit is cool and comfy for warm days spent exploring and can be easily dressed up with some accessories and a touch of lippy for chilled evening drinks at the pub - just pack a summery utility jacket in case of summer showers.
