What to wear this bank holiday weekend
26 April 2018
Whether you’re taking a mini break or staying at home, don't miss our round up of the five key pieces, guaranteed to make you look and feel your best this bank holiday, whatever your plan.
The statement jumpsuit
PERFECT FOR: BRUNCH WITH FRIENDS
You’ve been granted an extra day of weekend dressing and no look celebrates that more than this standout one-piece. Not only does it look effortlessly stylish (and is bound to have everyone asking where you got it from), it also requires minimum effort so you can save your precious, extra free time enjoying a lie in or reading the morning papers instead of worrying about what to wear. Add fresh white trainers to complete the look and if the sun comes out (we’re staying optimistic), your favourite sunnies too.

The pretty top
PERFECT FOR: RETAIL THERAPY
Snap up this sweet pastel pink blouse – complete with this season’s ruffles and a cute heart print – and team with your favourite pair of jeans. Simple, chic and on trend, it’s the perfect look to take you from a day at the shops to an impromptu lunch or coffee with friends.
The denim jacket
PERFECT FOR: THE CULTURE TRIP
Much like its leather counterpart, the denim jacket is a cover-up that never fails in the style stakes, especially when it comes to the unpredictable British weather. Striking the perfect balance of casual and cool, throw on this classic piece over your favourite dress (we're also coveting this striped number) and you'll be impeccably dressed for any activity. Now for your plan: a trip to the cinema, the seaside, an exhibition – whatever you choose to do, you can rest assured you'll have the best outfit for miles.

The must-have midi dress
PERFECT FOR: DATE NIGHT
The midi dress continues to reign supreme for spring. It’s the ultimate halfway house for when you’re not quite ready to fully bare your legs in a mini, but equally, a maxi hemline feels too formal. It’s also one of the hottest looks you can wear this spring. This floral version demands attention without being too bold, making it a sophisticated choice for dinner with your significant other. If you really want to make an impact, team it with heels and statement earrings or pare it back with flats to send the message that looking this good involves zero effort.
The cosy knit
PERFECT FOR: NEXT DOOR'S BARBECUE
You’ve been invited to friends or neighbours for an afternoon of feasting – and while a go-to combination of denim and a nice top might appeal as a safe bet, we dare you to step out of your comfort zone and try something a little different. This oversized jumper is not only stylish, but practical for many reasons: it will keep you warm if the temperature drops, plus it’s roomy enough to allow maximum indulgence at the buffet table. Pair it with a floaty skirt or layer over a dress with your trusty white trainers – just make sure you have a slick of lipstick and a cute cross-body bag at the ready, just in case you head out for drinks in the evening.
