What to wear for every type of half-term scenario

Parents will no doubt be keen to keep children busy during the half-term break next week, which means jam-packed days are ahead. For children, of course that means casual, relaxed looks that you won’t mind any mud or PVA glue patches on come the end of the day, but that doesn’t mean your own outfits can’t consist of elevated daywear. 

With the chance to have a fun-filled week off, a spot of dopamine dressing won’t go amiss, and for those flitting between day jobs and children’s activities, practical fashion swaps will make all the difference. 

It’s a lot to juggle, so allow this handy guide to help you with what to wear for every kind of half-term plan: 

The gallery-hopping day out

A chance to explore new exhibitions in the city is a lovely way to pass the time, but it’s an outing that requires a considered outfit. 

Now isn’t the time to break in your new loafers since you’ll likely be darting about preventing small hands from touching any paintings. Instead, look to a pair of trusty trainers and comfy jeans, with a smarter coat to add polish. Keep your hands-free – for ushering on and off trains – and opt for a rucksack or crossbody.

The staycation trip  

If you’re bundling half a dozen suitcases into your car for a trip to the coast, you’d do well to pack yourself a capsule wardrobe to save space. 

Pieces that you can mix and match for chilly long walks, cosy pub lunches, arcade trips and lovely dinners will make light work of packing and dressing once you arrive. Throw in a pouch with a few hair accessories and statement earrings to jazz up your looks for evening.

The movie day

A Paw Patrol marathon may just be your saving grace on a rainy day, in which case, comfy loungewear all round is a must for a day on the sofa. 

Given the excitement of an at-home cinema, spillages will be highly likely, so stick to darker shades and save your luxury silk pieces for another time.

Cotton pyjamas with a cashmere knit are just the ticket. For jazzy printed sets, Yolke and Yawn remain unbeaten, while M&S has excellent cosy knits this season.

The last-chance-for-sun escape  

Green list destinations are expected to prove popular next week, and if you’ve jumped at the chance for a sunny escape, you’ve probably wistfully planned your holiday wardrobe on your commute already this week. 

Instead, a helpful reminder will be what to wear for a long haul flight, particularly when you’re expected to have wipes, snacks and entertainment on your person at all times. A simple jersey top and joggers are ideal, while a utility jacket (with pockets aplenty) and a spacious crossbody bag are a must.

The outdoor scavenger hunt 

If you’re heading to the countryside or just down to the local park, a scavenger hunt is an excellent activity to keep children entertained while enjoying fresh air. 

The temperatures have dropped this week so layering is key, though I’d recommend avoiding any bulky pieces and opting for lightweight layers you can peel off as you run up and down.

Chunky boots and a water-resistant jacket are a no-brainer, and a lightweight cashmere knit in a bright hue means you can be easily spotted across the field.
