The Staycation Guide

As the current state of affairs have scuppered plans for destination holidays this year, many are turning to the good old-fashioned staycation. Not only is it a safer bet, it'll also make good use of your annual leave whilst having some much needed escapism from months of being confined to the house. There really are some fantastic hidden gems in the UK to explore, from countryside cottages to city breaks, seaside towns to forest log cabins, and all a perfect excuse to fashion those much-loved pieces which have been collecting dust in the closet for months. Here's our guide to where to go and what to wear if you're planning a staycation this year. 

COUNTRYSIDE RETREAT

Take your tweeds back to their countryside roots where they will sit perfectly against a backdrop of rolling hills and rustic cottages. English weather is unpredictable at the best of times so if it's not looking too balmy, pack a tweed blazer like our Enzo for strolls through the picturesque village towns or don a three piece suit for dinner reservations to really command attention. Make sure you also pack some lightweight shirts with a casual edge, we've got some great choices here.

CITY BREAK

Now that most shops, pubs and restaurants have safely reopened, a city break is a strong contender for your staycation. Whether it be a historic town or a bustling city, you'll have every reason to look super dapper as you traipse the city streets. This is the time to dust of the checked three pieces as you dine in fancy bars and restaurants and explore what your chosen city has to offer. A suave and sophisticated three piece like the Danny or Jerry suits hit the mark and will look ideal against the cityscape. 

SEASIDE ESCAPE 
Aiming for something that really feels like a holiday? Thankfully the UK has some idyllic seaside destinations which will give the Costa Del Sol a run for its money! For these type of postcard destinations opt for something lightweight with a bit of protection from the sea breeze. The Sid blazer is the perfect summer style in a dreamy colour for beach walks. If you want to make a statement, the Tony suit will do just that with its whimsical sky blue & pastel yellow combination. Be sure to pack some polo shirts and boat shoes to complete your daytime looks.
