The Ultimate Guide To Easter Weekend Dressing

The Perfect Travel Outfit
Away for the long weekend? Whether you’re set for a flight, a road trip or a long train journey, comfort is key, but that doesn’t need to mean compromising on style. Cashmere is always our go-to, thanks to its breathability – when you’re warm it helps to reduce sweating by wicking away moisture, and when you’re cool it keeps you much warmer than standard wool. Pair your cashmere loungewear with chunky sandals, a carry-all tote and statement accessories for an easy, travel-ready look.
A Long Weekend At Home
If you’re hunkering down at home for the Easter weekend, think relaxed athleisure that will help you unwind. Good-quality leggings and an oversized hoodie are always a good idea, then throw over a quilted khaki coat for a dash of colour if you need to head out, as well as some chic sunglasses, before heading back home to luxuriate in the bath.
A Weekend Of Off-Duty Errands
A weekend free of concrete plans and simply catching up on some overdue errands and preparing yourself for the season ahead is time well spent. Stick to easy wardrobe staples that allow you to look put-together, like a classic denim jacket, plain white tee and wide-leg chinos. Finish the look with some retro trainers and a classic timepiece.
A Country Retreat
There’s nothing better than a spring break in the British countryside, even if the weather doesn’t play ball. Be prepared for sunshine or showers with a versatile outfit that’ll work in all eventualities. Wide-cut, straight-leg jeans, a cropped trench and a knitted top will have you covered – just don’t forget your wellies in case those April showers make an appearance.
A Dinner Date With Friends
A chance to dress up and catch up with friends is always something to look forward to. A sleek black slip dress is a fail-safe option – throwing an oversized knit into the mix can add a more nonchalant feel for less formal settings. Pair with minimalist heels, subtly sparkling jewellery and, of course, a statement red lip.
A Warm City Break
It’s the perfect time of year to get away for a European city break. Where will it be? Rome, Paris, Barcelona? Wherever you choose, the key is to pack lightly and effectively. The weather will be warmer, so opt for versatile separates that can be easily layered, like a great cardigan and lightweight dress that packs small. Chunky sandals are a great catch-all shoe, sturdy enough for days spent walking around the city but elegant enough to wear for dinner. Sculptural earrings are an easy way to elevate your daytime outfit for night with minimal effort.
