Fresh looks for your Easter getaway!

If you're lucky enough to be jetting off to sunnier climes over the Easter break but are finding it hard to get into that spring/summer dressing mindset thanks to the distinctly un- spring like weather we've been having of late, then look no further! Whether you're heading for some sunny relaxation by the beach or a city break, we've got some great looks in store to inspire you and get you in the mood for the upcoming season.

First up, some looks for a spring city break, the key to which we think is layering. To save on packing and prepare for whatever the weather throws at you, look at versatile pieces that can be worn in a variety of ways and mix and matched to give you a whole host of different looks whilst you're away.

The knitted tank is a super versatile piece for spring/ summer dressing, giving you that extra layer when needed. Here we've teamed this gorgeous statement knitted vest from Weekend by MaxMara with a puff sleeved blouse, also from Weekend and paired them with our favourite Anessa jeans from Paige in a gorgeous spring like ecru colour. As you can see below, these pieces work fantastically layered up with a beautiful trench coat from Weekend by MaxMara for that added layer against the elements. But worn separately, combined with a darker denim jean or worn under an oversized blazer will give you a whole new range of looks.

Weekend by MaxMara shirt: £190

Weekend by MaxMara knitted vest: £165

Paige Annessa jeans: £255

Weekend by MaxMara trench: £591

Emu Australia espadrille trainers: £85

The next key essential for a spring city break, in our humble opinion, is a denim jacket. A good denim jacket can be one of the hardest working pieces in your wardrobe for Spring and a great layer for a city break or cooler evening by the beach. We also love the ability of a denim jacket to make your dresses into more of a 'daytime' look, meaning you can easily take your dresses from day to night and save valuable packing space. This oversized denim jacket from Paige is the softest denim we've ever felt and just so comfortable, the paler denim makes it great for wearing over dresses but also for teaming with dark denim or ecru jeans for that double denim look.

Paige denim jacket £290

Teamed with a beautiful Primrose Park dress and trainers for a daytime look, or accessorise the same dress with espadrilles and a clutch bag for an evening look.

Adding an extra layer with a denim jacket to make this statement jumpsuit from Pom Amsterdam into a perfect outfit for an evening meal. Pom Amsterdam jumpsuit £131

And finally, taking the beautiful Zion dress by Primrose Park into an easy yet put together daytime look. We absolutely love this shape dress, which was our bestseller last season, a looser style means it's great for the daytime with trainers or layered with a denim jacket, but also looks fab with some espadrilles to dress it up, or some chunky sandals for more of a summer beach look. If the looser style isn't your thing, we've seen customers belting it with a thin belt which looks fab! Primrose Park Zion dress £195 (Also available in Pink as pictured below)

And now for some easy daytime looks that combine looking fabulous with comfort- perfect for those city breaks!

Available in two stunning colour ways, this cotton top from Primrose Park is an easy to pack and easy to wear piece.We've teamed ours with the Paige Annessa jeans in ecru but it will also lool great with a wide leg dark denim or a boyfriend fit paler wash, as well as wide linen trousers.
