Dress For Your Perfect Staycation

For an easy 'how to do it effortlessly' here's our capsule wardrobes by Staycation Tribe. This summer, many of us are still swapping our travels to warmer climes for trips to the British coast, cities and countryside. But how to dress for your perfect staycation? Our holiday packing lists need to adapt for the British summer, of course, and therefore look a little different.

The Beach Lover

Pack for a British beach break as you would a summer holiday abroad, but just add layers! Bring in a sunny vibe to your capsule closet so that even grey beach days feel like they have a blue sky and sunshine. So, opt for bright blues and sunny yellows to create that picture postcard feel.

The City Breaker

Oh to wander the streets of Paris, Rome or New York. For now, City Breaker indulge your desires by exploring some of the beautiful cities of the UK. Dress for the occasion. Explore our beautiful home cities from Aberdeen to London and beyond in your perfect staycation best. Dress up blouses and skirts for those drop in lunches and pack a dress for that evening dining experience. A pair of flats or trainers are essential for all those streets you'll be pounding.

The Glamper

If beautiful picnic rugs, cushions and solar fairy lights are on your packing list for that weekend away camping then you’re definitely in glamping territory. As such, your outfits will need to be practical yet super-stylish. So, yes a waterproof will be needed but make it a chic one.

Selected Femme Mauve T-shirt, £15.00, is a pretty little essential for The Glamper

The Romantic Escape

Getting away with your significant other has been only but a dream for some time. Now a little night away in a pretty countryside boutique hotel is back in our sights. Make it an occasion to remember with a wardrobe that sees you as the romantic heroine, centre-stage. Waft wistfully in printed skirts and dresses but remember to bring layers because shivering against the elements is never great for romance but then hugging is coming back in vogue.

Pom Amsterdam Delicious Mess Dress, £175.00, is a sure-fire hit for The Romantic Getaway

The Family Daytripper

Forfeiting style for practicality is not a must for a family day trip. Adventure is afoot so you should definitely opt for a jumpsuit because it not only looks good but means you can chase the littles around, happily. Equally, a pair of great trainers are your all-rounder footwear of choice. You will be prepared for all impromptu feeding frenzies if you have a perfectly co-ordinating picnic rug too.
