Well, roadmap aside for one moment, it would be prudent to plan for a staycation in the UK in 2021. We can help. If you are staying on this archipelago of ours (known collectively as the The British Isles – just in case you did not know that!) then you will almost certainly have to pack for at least 3 seasons.
Wherever you go, let’s take the surroundings as a guide to your staycation wardrobe:
From Cornwall to Norfolk and Morayshire to Kent – we have some of the most beautiful beaches. What we don’t have is consistent sunshine – it’s not a bad thing, but it does make it trickier to dress for the summer. Let’s start with the base layer: A pretty short-sleeved blouse + cotton knit + cotton trousers = fabulously coastal with scope to de-layer as the wind allows. How about this coastal combo:
Scandis do base layers so very well. That first layer that touches your skin underpins your staycation wardrobe when hills are involved!
Rosemunde vests have a longer line to keep the midrift covered, with a silk/cotton blend that is lightweight, yet super breathable. We have a myriad of colours to choose from, in tanks and long-sleeves. Imminently practical, yet not compromising on style.
Walking up hills makes you hot so natural fibres are a must. Walking outfit: Rosemunde Silk/Cotton Vest + Cotton Mix Troos + Chalk Cosy Socks + Neon Marl Sweatshirt + Rosemunde raincoat = Brilliant walking outfit with ability to layer up or down.
Our cities get muggy! Our summer climate is such that when the temperature rises, the humidity soars – it’s a real issue for visiting our cities and so you need some clever styles that will let you roll up their sleeves, don’t show creases (or sweat patches…..it’s a thing!) and a handy cross body bag that allows you to carry water, which you will need whilst jumping on and off buses, tubes, trams or trains. City outfit: Printed dress + cross-body bag + organic cotton face mask = perfect city break styling.
