What to Wear in a City Synonymous with Beauty…Bath
Jane Austin would agree that Bath, with its stunning architecture and overall charm, is one of the most romantic places to visit. From the Royal Crescent and Roman Baths to the modern cafes, markets and secret gardens, there is truly something stunning around every corner.
When I visited Bath, the weather was perfect. The sun was shining and the fresh air vacillated between warm and warmer, but never hot. I did a lot of walking, so prepare for that with comfortable sandals, ballerina slip-ons, or a feminine deck-style shoe. A long, short, or mid-length chiffon pleated skirt with a tank top or tube top is really cute and comfortable. A floral tunic top or dress with either leggings or shorts would work, too. Bath is also the perfect place to pull out the maxi dress. No matter what you decide to wear in Bath, be comfortable. Carrying a handbag big enough for a scarf and/or small cardigan is a good idea because UK weather can be quite unpredictable.
As always, it is advisable to bring a small umbrella, but I am sure you already knew that. It didn’t rain when I was there, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get caught in a light afternoon or evening shower!
