Shopping Fix: The Best Buys For Easter Beach Holidays And City Breaks

27 March 2013 by

While those of us staying put for Easter will happily make do with accessorizing our cosy looks with a hot-water bottle, and potentially ski boots, those lucky enough to jet off for the break need look no further as we've rounded up the best holiday buys below. With our Fashion Editors gearing up for both city and beach breaks, we've asked them what they'll be packing this weekend.

For city breaks we're taking prints to the max, with stripes, monochrome and navajo prints reigning supreme, and packing fancy flats to make sightseeing that little bit prettier! When it comes to hitting the beach, we'll be making a statement with colourblocking swimsuits and haute cover-ups, making the sun-lounger to sun-downer cocktail transition stylishly simple.
