What to Pack for a UK Staycation

by Chloe Wilshere, Content Creator

Going abroad may not be on the cards this year, so if like the majority of us you’re planning the ultimate staycation this summer, then we know that a UK break requires a slightly different list of essentials to the ones you would usually pack for your normal beach getaway.

Thankfully, the good old British summer has finally pulled it out the bag for us and the sunshine we’ve all been waiting for is here so you can officially enjoy your UK staycation in the sun (who really needs a holiday abroad, anyway). But, if you’re stuck on what to take with you then we’re here to lend a helping hand on what to pack for the perfect UK staycation.

1. @LaurenCrowe88 Shows Us How to Picnic in a Playsuit

Boozy brunches have quite literally turned into picnics in the park, after all 2020 is the summer of picnics. And whether you’re planning a UK staycation or just spending the summer in your local hometown, then we’re certain you’ll be having plenty of picnics, which means you’ll need the perfect outfit to do it in.

So, for the perfect picnic, you’ll want to wear a picture-perfect playsuit. Playsuits are stretchy and comfy enough to drink and eat all the picnic delicacies to your heart's content - not to mention how good it looks, too. If you’re packing for your staycation, then be sure not to forget your straw bag, knitted cardi and sliders.

2. An Essential White Dress According to @LivBlankson

Hot summer days are finally upon us (hooray!) which means there’s one ultimate essential to add to your UK staycation packing list… and that is a white mini dress. We all know that there’s only one way to tackle British summertime heat and that is by wearing white.

So, with plenty of warm days upon us over the coming weeks, a white mini dress is sure to be a saviour throughout your UK staycation. Whether you keep it casual like Liv and pair it with some flatform sandals, a bandana to keep the heat at bay and a pouch bag or dress it up in the evening with some wedges, you're sure to get a lot of use out of it this summer.

3. @ChloeWilshere Shows us How to Style Beach-Ready Knitwear

If you’re lucky enough to be planning a UK staycation that involves being able to see some of the best beaches that the UK has to offer, then you’ll want to relax and explore them in style by wearing our ultimate beach-ready combo that is, of course, our embellished knitted cami and cardigan set. It's the perfect combination for our often-uncertain British weather as you can decide whether you let the sun kiss your shoulders or wrap up from the wind. But be sure not to forget your denim shorts and a straw bag to carry your beach belongings!
