What (not) to wear

Our overseas guests – visiting us this Summer from warmer climes – weren’t dressed for breezy beach days or autumnal August evenings.

As someone who regularly holidays in the Lake District in November, it reminded me that there’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong kind of clothes … worth remembering when packing for a UK trip (for which fashion editor Lisa Armstrong recommends “robust layering” and “high-quality cashmere”).

So, do any destinations have a “what to wear” section on their websites? Or even a link through to What To Wear On Holiday, where you’ll see that a lightweight raincoat is a must for a visit to the UK, jeans are ubiquitous, and that “crocs” are essential if you’re going in the sea at Brighton!
