The four day weekend is an excellent excuse to give yourself a break and get a mini-holiday in. Your wardrobe choices will be dependent on what type of break you have planned and we don’t want you to forget anything! We’ve covered the most popular choices with some style suggestions and holiday tips to guarantee a cracking Easter getaway!
Landmarks, museums, galleries, parks and more. The city break is probably the most common type of Easter getaway and almost guarantees that you’re going to be on your feet a lot. A pair of trainers should be at the top of your list in this case. Go for something on the smarter side so that you’re not caught out if you get up to something ritzier in the evening. A nice casual jacket is key here too. A water-resistant, lightweight bomber will get you through pretty much anything, and can always be layered over a plain hoodie if you do need that little bit extra.
Which bag to take: A small backpack is all you need for this one, once you arrive, empty it out, pack yourselves some water and get exploring the urban landscape!
Don’t forget! To download TripAdvisor offline GPS app. It lets you save maps to your phone so you can get around easily as you avoid expensive roaming charges.
Whether you’re keeping your fingers crossed for a decent spell of British weather or are lucky enough to be escaping the country for the Bank holiday weekend, feeling the sand between your toes is a great way to spend it. When you’re done with that though, an espadrille is an ideal option that will keep your feet cool and remain relatively elegant- excellent for the beach bar! It’s always good to have a pair of flip-flops on hand too. They’re a holiday staple, and they don’t take up much space in your bag either!
Which bag to take: Pack an oversized tote with a towel, some sunnies and a few drinks to keep you going throughout the day. Totes are optimal for the beach, as they can be folded down and packed away once you’re done with them!
Don’t forget! Swimwear! Pick a well-made, neutral coloured pair of trunks and they’ll pass for shorts during the day too. And of course, remember the sun lotion!
If your ideal escape leads you out into the country, something a little different may be in order. Equip yourself for outdoor excursions with a sturdy pair of boots, and make sure you’re prepared for anything! You should keep an eye on the weather forecast before you pack for this one, but no matter which way it goes there are a few things we can guarantee you’ll need. A weatherproof jacket is vital! If it’s looking hot, pick something lightweight and bring another layering option like a padded gilet just in case the climate changes!
Which bag to take: Protect your back with a rucksack full of technical pockets and space to pack extra layers, food for a picnic and any other survival gear you think you might need.
Don’t forget! To switch on “Find my friends” on your phone- just in case 😉
