The Essential Bank Holiday Picks 

Weekend away essentials from Hobbs

Are you having a pre-bank holiday mini breakdown over packing? Don’t fear – we’ve got you! May is a glorious month as not only is summer just around the corner (we hope, anyway!) we get to enjoy two lovely long weekends. And it’s important to make the most of these, whether it be visiting family, heading away for a little weekend getaway or catching up with the girls over a few cocktails. A few of the team will be packing their bags for a mini staycation, and we’ve teamed up with Hobbs to bring you the ultimate wardrobe essentials for a weekend away.

The Lavina Trench Coat

The Lavina Trench Coat

You never know what our schizophrenic weather will bring here in the UK. Ensure you’re protected from the elements with a stylish and classic trench coat. A beautifully lightweight design, this jacket will take you from daytime to evening just perfectly as it can be dressed casually with a pair of jeans or dressed up for a smarter evening appropriate look. A very versatile piece!

The Hampstead Saddle Bag

The Hampstead Saddle Bag

When you’re exploring somewhere new it’s a good idea to ensure you’re ‘hands free’ to take a few snaps and browse at ease! This gorgeous Hampstead saddle bag is the perfect size to fit all of your essentials, available in three different shades; fawn, navy and soft blue. It’s a firm favourite of ours.

The Sienna Scarf

The Sienna scarf from Hobbs

A scarf is an absolute must-have for a weekend break as they have many uses! Not only do they offer an extra element of style to your outfit they can also keep you warm in the cooler evening temperatures and work perfectly as a wrap. We love this Sienna style which adds a spring worthy pop of colour.

The Rosalind Sweater

The Rosalind Sweater from Hobbs

The classic Breton top has had a summer refresh with the Rosalind sweater, whilst remaining a classic staple piece for your weekend wardrobe. A lightweight style, this sweater is perfect for varying temperatures and can be easily teamed with jeans, trousers, and culottes!

The Bella Culottes

The Bella Culottes from Hobbs

Too chilly for shorts but bored of wearing trousers and skinnies all of the time? The Bella culottes offer the perfect in-between season style update. Crafted in a stretch-cotton navy twill, these culottes offer a casual yet chic look which can be easily styled with the rest of your wardrobe. We think these would look just fabulous with the Rosalind sweater for a contemporary twist on a classic outfit.
