The Easter holidays are the perfect time to let your hair down and relax, but packing for your Easter break – especially when you have the whole family to think about – can be anything but calming. There’s no need to worry; we’ve done the hard work for you with our Easter holiday packing guide so getting prepped will be a breeze.

As everything begins to blossom and bloom marking the start of spring, you’ll want to make sure your holiday wardrobe does too. You’ve probably started to think about what you’ll need to pack -from swimwear to wellies– depending on your destination, so here’s our guide to show you exactly what you need.

The Beach Escape

Swimwear and lightweight cover-ups will be your beach holiday favourites. Easy to pack and wear, bohemian style maxi dresses and kimonos will take your outfit from beach to bar. Don’t forget swimwear and those all-important accessories; we love a white bikini teamed with a floppy hat and round sunnies for a glamorous poolside look.

The Country Break

Layers are key for a countryside break; after all, the British weather is notoriously unpredictable. Start with your favourite jeans, then add colourful spring prints and practical knits. A floral dress will look sweet in the day paired with ankle boots or wellies, and can be dressed up for afternoon tea with court shoes. Model wears Principles by Ben de Lisi.

The City Weekend

Day to night essentials are perfect for a city break, as they’ll cater to every occasion. We love sleek tailoring for a city slicker look, opt for a pencil skirt and a lightweight blouse for a simple yet sophisticated combination. Killer heels, statement jewellery and a bold clutch will elevate your look for nights on the town.

With everything sorted for escapes to the beach, countryside and city, there’s only one thing left to do: sit back and relax…
