Bank Holidays are like lovely little treats dotted across the year, and May spoils us with not one but two to look forward to! Whatever you’re doing this May Bank Holiday, we’ve got your stylish sneaky-day-off outfits sorted with pretty tops, practical playsuits and more:
By the Seaside
Whether you’ve got kids who want to put those buckets and spades to use, or you’re just craving fish and chips with a sea view, a day out by the seaside is a classic way to spend a bank holiday. Unfortunately, the Great British seaside is as famous for its unpredictable weather as it is for sticks of rock and 99 ice-creams, so pack a parka! This smart parka with denim detail will look great with jeans or cut-offs – and it’s on sale!
Going to the cinema in the daytime always feels decadent, so it’s the perfect way to spend a rainy Bank Holiday. Air-conditioning can cause a chill so jeans and comfy knitwear will keep you cosy. This raspberry Cropped Sweater will pop against high-waisted dark denims.
Escape to the Sun
Jetting off to the sunshine? Lucky you! A kaftan is the ultimate carry-on bag essential to take you from beach to bar. Just add flip-flops or sporty sliders, a cut away swimsuit and a pair of denim cut-offs and you’re pretty much packed!
Whether it’s music, art, food, craft or something else that’s giving you festival fever, you’ll want to look cool while keeping comfortable. A playsuit gets top marks for practicality. Team with Converse sneakers or monocolour trainers for an on-trend casual look.
Taking the opportunity to sneak in a shopping day? Dress for comfort, but smart enough for the obligatory stop for a posh lunch. A dress and slip on shoes are the ultimate easy to whip on and off in the changing rooms combo. This soft light grey IRO jersey dress is a dream to slip in and out of and would look great dressed down with TOMS or sneakers.
Why not treat yourself to the ultimate indulgence this Bank Holiday and waste it doing absolutely nothing. Comfy sweats, a good book, trashy TV and lots of zero-effort treats are all you need!
