It's almost officially spring and with the weather outside so delightful, we’re looking for opportunities to spend more time outdoors and ‘glamping’ seems to be the ultimate way to do just that.
From designer hiking boots to trendy flaks, before you head out into nature, make sure you're kitted out in all the right gear.
Here are the must-have items for the glamorous camper:

Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style. Designed for daily use in transitional seasons, this jacket features our flexible three-layer Tri-Durance fabric to protect against harsh and unpredictable weather.
Mid-thigh length adds coverage and is complemented by a gusseted fishtail hem and scalloped cuffs for extra protection. The jacket is lightweight enough to roll up and easily stow into a hood. Once packed away, cinch drawcord to minimise volume even further for easy travel.
