Beach trips and long weekends go hand-in-hand with each other if you’re after a relaxing and wholesome weekend with family or friends.
Although we’re still in summer, when you’re by the beach there’s always a breeze so a knitted option to throw on will keep you warm by the sea but cool when the sun makes an appearance. A cardigan is a great option to throw on and off as you want, or for something thicker opt for a collared jumper with denim. You’re ready to watch the sunset in style.

If you’re heading to one of the many festivals lined-up this bank holiday, make sure you head to centre stage in style.
This crochet knit top is perfect for British festivals where you need a little extra coverage across your arms but still want to channel the summer weather in shorts – the best of both worlds! Or if you’re dress obsessed, add a festival edge into your favourite style with this sleeveless denim jacket.
Long weekends are a great way to take a trip to your favourite city or explore somewhere new, without using your holiday at work!
For the daytime when you’re shopping and exploring, keep things casual in wide leg jeans and a relaxed tee for a laidback vibe. City breaks call for trainers as you’ll be doing a lot more walking than you realise and pair perfectly with the relaxed fit of the wide leg jeans.
Shop plus size wide leg jeans.
Romantic Day Date
Switch up your usual date night and turn it into a day date! Take your favourite picnic snacks to a new spot, head to the cinema to watch that film you’ve been waiting to see or embrace your inner child at an arcade game centre.
You can keep your outfit casual but cute in a flattering floral dress with heeled sandals or dress down your jeans and a nice top with flat sandals.
Bank hols are perfect for bottomless brunch lovers. Let’s be honest, the aim of the game for bottomless brunch is to get as many drinks in as you can within your allocated time slot, but the next day can often be a slow one right? That’s where the extra day comes in handy…
Depending on the vibe of the brunch, you can opt for a classic jeans and a nice top or get glam in a dress and heels combo. We’re making the most of the summer and bringing in a pop of colour into our outfits where we can.
