Style Insider Your daily dose of luxury

Bank Holiday Style Swap

Make like our favourite fashion icons this Bank Holiday weekend and channel off-duty dressing with style. Whether you’re treating yourself to a culture-filled city break or taking time out in the country, our Style Swap guide will have you enjoying the long weekends ahead and staying chic. Scroll through the gallery above for our favourite looks.

Swap…High heels for high tops

Give your ankles a rest this Bank Holiday and add a dose of street-style to your look with a pair of high tops. Showcased perfectly here by Sarah Jesscia Parker, these kicks are the ultimate in off-duty attire – we want a pair of Hogan Rebel’s Hercules.

Swap…Large tote for a mini bag

Desperately searching for your keys in a huge handbag is so last season, so invest in SS14’s mini bag instead. Big enough for your absolute essentials but small enough to look oh-so-cute, we love Givenchy’s Mini Antigona Tote.

Swap…Big winter coat for a transeasonal leather jacket

In between seasons, choosing outerwear can create quite the sartorial dilemma. That’s why we’re channelling biker-chic this season with the perennial leather jacket. Make like Kate Bosworth and wear with shades, skinnies and heels for day, and then dress it up for evening.

Swap…Embellishment for a Breton top

While we adore this season’s embellishment trend, sometimes, we feel like something a little more low-key. Thanks to the always-chic Breton top, we can make a style statement without the bling. Take notes from Emmy Rossum’s pops of red for a certain je ne sais quoi.

Swap…Skinny jeans for flares

Ever since skinny jeans hit the fashion scene, the sighting of a new denim trend has become almost non-existent. So you can imagine our delight when we spotted The Wolf of Wall Street actress, Margot Robbie in these incredible flares; super flattering to the figure, the bigger the flare, the better. P.S. heels are a must!
