10 Buys For The Perfect Bank Holiday Wardrobe For Under ?150

Every time we get away for a weekend we have visions of packing the perfectly curated weekend bag that manages to simultaneously channel the effortlessly chic style of an off-duty model and be any-weather-appropriate. This is not something we ever really achieve, usually opting instead for flinging in approximately 19 tops, no knickers and the jeans that we forgot haven’t fit since before the second baby.


Editing the perfectly curated bank holiday wardrobe is a fine art, you need to be conscious of space so opting for hard working pieces like jeans that can work for day or evening looks are a must. A dress that can be worn as both a top and a dress is a great little hack also, this red number below is from our fave new online store Lindex?the latest, best-kept Scandi secret and would be perfect for strolling around the streets of a new city, then just swap jeans for black pumps and you are ready for a cocktail and some people watching.

Shoulder and crossbody bags are not the best option?for exploring on a weekend break, we love the quilted backpack for a bit of utilitarian chic. And from the practical to the oh-so-pretty, underwear is one of the most fun, frilly aspects of our weekend bag, after all we’ve dragged the other half away for a reason.
