If you're planning a Summer staycation in the UK, it’s best to prepare for every eventuality of the ‘Great British Weather’. From comfy casual tops and stylish day-dresses to wet-weather essentials, we’ve got all your staycation packing needs covered.

Whether you’re road-tripping to one of the beautiful Lakes, surfing on the beaches of Devon and Cornwall, or enjoying country walks in the New Forest, your outfits will need to be practical and versatile – but there’s no need skimp on style. 

As the British Summer usually consists of warm, sunny days interspersed with wet, chillier days,  a waterproof raincoat from the likes of Ilse Jacobsen or Barbour is a must, along with a few skin-saving beauty products like this multi-purpose Wild Rose Beauty Balm from Neal's Yard. Fill your case with handy light layers like this striped tee from M.i.h, and this Gant fun floral sweatshirt, which go effortlessly with some fail-safe denim. 

Finish off with a colourful accessory like this macaroon-pink Mulberry bucket bag, or pretty printed scarf from Kate Spade New York - and don’t forget to throw in some trusty wellies - these fabulous bright-pink Joules beauties are perfect for gloomier days. Take a look at our top staycation-packing picks below, all of which you’ll find at Fenwick.
