London: Rachel Whiteread, Tate Britain
If sculpture is your thing, then head to the Tate Britain to see the awe-inspiring work of internationally acclaimed British artist, Rachel Whiteread. Rachel uses industrial materials such as plaster, concrete, rubber, metal and resin to cast the surface volume of everyday objects and architectural spaces – an innovative technique that earned her the Turner prize in 1993. Don’t miss key works such as Untitled (100 spaces) and Room 101.
What to wear: Reflect the minimalist aesthetic of the exhibition by styling a cashmere sweater with a pair of tailored trousers in tonal shades of grey. Try the Collette Cashmere Jumper and Nipper wool coat.

Wakefield: Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Take a break from the confines of the traditional gallery and get your next cultural fix in the beautiful grounds of Wakefield’s Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Over 80 sculptures and installations are dotted across the vast open-air space, where works from the likes of Barbara Hepworth, Antony Gormley and Henry Moore are free to enjoy at your leisure. Don’t forget the picnic.
What to wear: Don’t let unpredictable weather spoil your trip and be prepared for anything with cosy layering pieces. We love the Mercury checked coat partnered with the slouchy Kitten Play top. Who says the outdoors can’t be chic?

Liverpool: Constellations, Tate Liverpool
Enhance your knowledge of contemporary art while having a little fun at Tate Liverpool’s latest exhibition, Constellations: Highlights from the Nation’s Collection of Modern Art. Showing the very best of the Tate collection, the display features a range of artworks – from Joseph Beuys, to Grayson Perry and Cindy Sherman – in constellations or ‘clusters’. This innovative presentation is designed to help you find similarities between works of art that, on first glance, you may view as poles apart.
What to wear: The ‘Constellations’ exhibition is a celebration of all things eclectic, so take your trip as an opportunity for a little sartorial experimentation. The Ula shift dress is just the thing with a sculptural cropped-sleeve shape and graphic jacquard. Add a pop of unexpected colour with your accessories.
