Whether you're jetting off to warmer climes or avoiding foreign travel in favour of a staycation here over the long weekend, this will be the first opportunity to spend some time away from home.
We share our five Bank Holiday Packing essentials here that will cope with all weather, remember all orders placed by Tuesday will be with you by Thursday !
1. The Lightweight Sweater
With Spring weather feeling a long way off still we are all needing that extra layer of warmth with a spring sweater. Lighter weights, pretty fresh shades and easy silhouettes that layer easily over jeans, trousers or dresses make this our number one essential to pack. Charli London's lovely viscose knits are all made in Italy and offer great value.
2. Cool Sunglasses
Never go anywhere in spring without a pair of sunnies to hand ! The current weather changes from sunshine to showers in a minute. An extra pair left in the car are a great asset. Part Two always offer classic frames with UV safe lenses and if you are feeling more adventurous without breaking the bank look no further than these cool shades from Powder.
3. The Summer Hat
It's amazing how a chic straw hat just tops off an outfit. Nothing worse than sitting outside with the sun a bit too strong having lunch and squinting or feeling uncomfortable. Powder's Natalie hat looks so chic and can also be folded to pack away in your case - sorted !
4. The Go Anywhere Scarf
Ditto a pretty scarf. At the moment it can also double up as a face mask if needed and if there is a chilly wind nothing quite keeps out the chill like a scarf. I never go anywhere without a scarf in my bag, and for a long weekend it's the perfect option for adding a twist to a capsule wardrobe and ringing the changes. Pom's summer collection have some gorgeous prints in lightweight cottons and viscoses
5. The Secret Layer
SHHH don't let on but a clever camisole vest layered under the filmiest or prettiest of summer tops will keep you cosy. The trusty Hydda vest from Part Two is our go to and is now back in stock - we won't tell if you don't x
