With hundreds of miles of beautiful coastline and picturesque locations, holidaying on our shores shouldn’t feel like second-best - and nor should what you pack.

Dress for the weather you’re hoping for is in store and you might be pleasantly surprised. Our money is on chic shorts - like the waist-grazing Mirabell and pleated Shailene - which run longer down the thigh than our more diminutive denim styles. Whether you’re rock-pooling or rambling, you’ll be doing it in style. Then throw on a relaxed shirt, like the Annika with its feminine fastenings or the more contemporary Rena, and suddenly you’re prepped for a day of changeable weather.​

A long midi dress in a natural fabric like organic cotton will see you through the whole summer. Kathleen takes the shape of last year’s best-selling Aphrodite - complete with a subtle print and a tiered skirt. We love it with an oversize basket bag like Cora. ​

Finally, a midi skirt with an elasticated waist that you can layer with elevated basics also promises to work hard for your staycation. Vest tops, classic tees, timeless Henleys… everything goes. Simply reach for a denim jacket (this is the UK after all!) and you’ll be laughing all the way to the ice-cream parlour.
