This dress just screams ‘out of office.’ Made for all manners of staycations, whether it be a city or seaside break, this is the ultimate away dress. Pair with trainers during the day and bright heels at night.
When populating a summer staycation wardrobe, espadrilles are a must. The shoes of summer, they are versatile and comfortable in equal measure. Wear with your best jeans for casual nonchalance or with a beautiful summer dress for an ode to the Mediterranean.
Picking a cover-up for summer is tricky. The dream is something light enough to carry when the heat picks up but protects from the chill while keeping the outfit chic. It sounds impossible but we think we may have struck gold with this linen blazer from Zara. Relaxed and refined, it is the only staycation jacket you need.
A white t-shirt, boring? Never! A hard-working staple, it is a must in any collection. This Weekday version is flawlessly designed, ending at the right points on the arms and on the body. A true bargain with major value.
It would be a fashion crime to forgo jeans when talking about a staple wardrobe. Practical but stylish, they will be the first item you pick up for any staycation activity that involves dry and flat ground. ASOS ‘Farleigh’ jeans are one of the best denim fits around – you won’t regret adding them to your collection.
While espadrilles are your staycation heeled options, trainers must be your flat alternative. We rate going for a vintage feel with a pair of Reebok’s Club C 85. Meanwhile, create the #OOTD of dreams by wearing with your jeans, t-shirt and linen blazer.
It wouldn’t be a getaway without some sparkle and night-out extravagance. For your dinner and drinks option, you won’t find any dress more glam than this puff sleeve beauty from ASOS. Keep accessories to a minimum and let this silhouette do all the talking.
Finally, to bring the entire selection together, choose a bag that will work for day and night. This baguette-style bag from Mango can be easily swung over your shoulder for lunchtime strolls, while adding a touch of sophistication to your night activities. Plus, it will hold all of your essentials.
