With anxieties around foreign travel still running high, we’re set to see a record number of people holidaying at home this summer. But swapping our exotic trips for minibreaks to the British coast or countryside means our packing list will look a little different this year. Because let’s face it, whilst we all hope the recent run of sunshine lasts, chances are the great British weather will hit us with a few curveballs. But fear not! Our staycation style guide mixes the freshest looks with some key essentials so you look great no matter what.
Matching two-pieces are the definition of cool right now. They’re also super handy as you don’t need to stress about overpacking in the hope you’ll figure out your outfit pairings while you’re away. Look out for sets that come with matching cardigans or hoodies so you’ve got something to chuck on when the sun goes in.
From sporty tracksuits and bralettes to ultramodern blazers and shorts sets, there’s a co-ord to suit everyone’s style. Complete the on-trend vibe with some equally hot huggie hoops or our rebellious lock stud earrings.
Your Staple Summer Coat
Make sure you’re never caught off guard by unexpended downpours with a light-weight coat or jacket. If you need to pick just one then you can’t go wrong with the ever-versatile trench coat. These classic macs have been an iconic of women’s fashion for decades and don’t look to be going anywhere soon.
Style yours with everything from jeans and trainers to floral maxi skirts or fold it up with minimal fuss when the sun is shining. And if you already love your look? They now even come in see through material to show off your outfit underneath.
Dresses are another easy win as they don’t take up much room in your case and can be thrown on for an effortlessly chic look. This summer is all about the cut-out dress. Think a flash of skin around the waist or some edgy details around the shoulders or hips. Or for something a little more lowkey, you can’t go wrong with a timeless smock. Especially one in this season’s pastel shades. Style with simple stud earrings and chunky strappy sandles or canvas shoes. Then have a denim jacket handy for when you’re enjoying alfresco drinks.
Playsuits are another great summer day to night outfit that can be easily dressed up or down with the right accessories. Show off your (hopefully!) sun-kissed pins with frilly short styles in floral prints. Or else nail another 2021 trend by opting for a monochrome all in one. You’ll also find plenty with slouchy, wide-cut legs for when you’re getting some much needs R&R.
For beach ready vibes, team floatier numbers with our cute shell studs. Or go for a nautical theme with our yacht wheel and mini anchor hypoallergenic earrings. Then switch things up to nighttime glam with a pair of heels and gold hoop earrings.
