Summer 2016: The Long Weekend Getaway

Posted on

 

Sometimes a long weekend away is just what you need to recharge your batteries and leave you feeling completely refreshed. From a pretty Italian island getaway to a relaxing weekend in Cannes, we pinned down 5 of the best places to go for a short break, and what to wear whilst you’re there.

 


 

 

Cannes

If you want harbour side glamour then head to Cannes. The south of France has always been a popular destination for short breaks, and it’s no surprise when it’s just a 2 hour flight from London. Walking among the couture shops and palaces of La Croisette, and laying on the sun lounger-striped beaches watching the super yachts coming in, the glamourous lifestyle of Cannes cannot fail to impress. Spend your days wondering around the old quarter of Le Suquet and enjoy your with good food and wine by the harbour. When you’re accessorising your beach-side glamour look, stick to silver and blue hues for a fresh and effortless aesthetic.

Marrakech

Marrakech is an enchanting city where time has been suspended, it’s ancient past planted firmly in the present. At times daunting, but always exhilarating, the key to visiting Marrakech is allowing yourself to get lost and opening yourself up to the experiences you will undoubtedly encounter. Immerse yourself in the bustling Medina and explore the maze-like alleys where thriving colour-charged souks sell traditional jewellery, textiles and pottery, and then escape to the new town to enjoy the art galleries and restaurants. As for accessories, layer up lots of gold jewellery and add a vibrant splash of Moroccan colour with warm-toned gemstones.

Capri

If an idyllic and peaceful island break is what you’re after, there is no better place than the picturesque island of Capri. Situated off the Sorrentine Peninsula, Capri is brimming with whitewashed stone buildings covered in overgrown bougainvillea, and winding, car-free streets you can get lost in. Just a 45 minute walk from the city of Capri, the ruins of the Roman palace, Villa Jovis, is a must-see. Match your jewellery to the stunning scenery of the island; wear delicate pieces that exude colour and femininity.

Cologne

Described by some as a ‘gothic masterpiece’, Cologne is a city full of seemingly boundless attractions, history and architecture. Famous for its ornate cathedral with filigree twin spires that dominate the skyline, the city’s collection of museums is particularly strong when it comes to art. Whilst ambling around town, you’ll find medieval buildings, avant-garde structures and even an ancient Roman wall. It’s a vibrant cultural metropolis, and one to add to your holiday destination list. For this city break, keep your jewellery minimalistic and contemporary; think clean lines and geometric shapes.
