The first Bank Holiday weekend of the season is upon us and it’s the longest of the year. Traditionally filled with social get-togethers, pub lunches and quality time to unwind, it’s a chance to really appreciate that ‘out of office’ status for all that it promises. Here, we take just some of the ways you might be planning to spend your days and look at what to wear for each.
1. THE CITY ESCAPE
For some, the opportunity of four days off of the work routine is the only excuse needed to book a getaway, and why ever not? If you’re destined for a city break, be it close to home or overseas, it’s chic, spring-ready separates that should top your packing list. Take inspiration from the ultimate Parisian style icon, Jean Shrimpton by making vintage-inspired straight-leg jeans your calling card. Wear them with a colour-pop top and your favourite leather biker. Accessories should be carefully considered here as they hold the potential to really make the outfit. A hat can be the icing on top of the cake and this season it’s felt trilby’s that we’re especially keen on heroing.
