The best weekend away wardrobe is easy to pack, wear and enjoy, especially when you have the right accessories and the appropriate basics. In this blog the MirrorMePR Luxury PR UK Team offer their top tips and style advice for a great weekend getaway in style!
Firstly, you need to look at the activities you are going to be undertaking. If long walks in the countryside are on the agenda then pack suitable footwear, and practical clothing is always a must-have. Plan before you pack.
Lie out all your items on the bed and scrutinise each piece. See if you can pack less. Choosing one great jacket that will take you from day to night, and a lightweight waterproof jacket, will ease up some room in your bag for all those toiletries (Yes we DO NEED to take all those lotions and potions!) A gorgeous scarf is a simple way to transform a plain outfit into something special through colour. We adore this BHOID Tay Scarf because of its gorgeous injection of colour and countryside fashion. A scarf doesn’t take up any room in your bag and you can even tie it on the handles of your handbag.
A dress that can take you from day to night, with the right accessories and shoes, is a must for those wishing to travel light. A gorgeous knitted throw or poncho is the ideal go-to garment for the experienced traveller (perfect for in-flight comfort). The luxury PR UK team love this Timothy Foxx poncho for its versatility and designer tweed.
If boots are your thing, then take one pair that will take you from a day of shopping through to smart casual night outfit. These bespoke boots from The Spanish Boot Company work perfectly for the daytime with jeans but can be teamed up with a little black dress and THAT scarf we mentioned earlier for your evening transformation.
We like jewellery that we can wear all of the time. Removing jewellery and leaving it in the safe is a bore, and increases your chances of losing it. Our best weekend jewellery edit is simple and can be worn throughout your whole weekend. The Farah Neckchain by Sylvia Kerrcan cam be worn as a necklace or wrapped around your wrist as a bracelet, giving you two looks in just one piece of jewellery.
A decent belt is always going to make a difference and we love this Equetech Suede & Stirrup Belt. This belt is an easy piece to integrate into your wardrobe and dress up jeans or a dress.
Depending the weather or time of year, you will also need:
Cosy socks and slippers
Classic white blouse or shirt
Tights (2 x pairs, just in case you ladder a pair)
Evening clutch bag & day time handbag
