Whistles guide to weekend getaways

Spring is the perfect time for weekend city tripping – there are certain staple items you’ll need to equip your time spent at museums, vintage markets, dinners, park strolls and lazy brunches. Read our tips to packing for your weekend getaway.

Hand luggage

Dust bags help protect your heels and can be used for laundry on the way home. Protect your jewellery in your travel bag and use a leather tablet holder for a damage free and chic journey. Notebooks, pens and beauty supplies sit neatly in your handbag.

What to pack

A leather biker jacket can be worn for day under your trench coat and over a smart dress at night. Silk trousers offer an alternative to the dress, perfect for your second evening out and light to pack – elevate with heels. White shirts and slim fit jeans help form the backbone of your daytime wardrobe – effortless but elegant, this look will take you from gallery to cafe. 

Airport outfit

There is nothing better to get you in the holiday mood than organising your airport outfit the night before you travel. A light trench coat smartens your favourite pair of jeans (try our Selby denim for extra comfort), flat pumps are relaxed but sophisticated and a soft scarf provides chic comfort when flying. 

Avoiding creases

Rolling your basic jersey tees and knitwear as you pack them keeps creasing to a minimum, saving on ironing time in your hotel room.
