The clocks have changed, the flip flops have been tucked away and as open fires crackle into life what could be more attractive than a cosy, weekend away in the country with friends, loved ones or families reunited.
This year (and last) we certainly learnt how to do holidays at home better than ever but if the thought of packing one small bag for a trip in a country where the climate is — putting it mildly, unpredictable — puts you in a frenzy, fear not we hear you. Luckily, this seasons fashion has adapted for our needs and the high street is inundated with stylish weatherproof pieces that will stand the test of time in showers, comfortable footwear, splash proof and cool, plus coord knits and dresses to pile on with flats.
There is no set timetable for fashion on these weekends. The key is to pack versatile layers that can roll from daytime rambles to pitstops in pubs and everything in between. After all your plans will be as changeable as the weather! To help you pack we have curated the best new pieces for a capsule wardrobe that covers all bases. From cosy teddy coats at Mango, the cutest cord dungarees at Fatface, oversized knits at Zara and fabulous hiking boots (that have had a fashion makeover) — it’s all here.
