The Checklist: Weekend Getaway
Want to pack light but like an expert? We’ve got you covered with our guide to building the perfect weekend-away wardrobe whether you’re heading to the beach or on an action-packed outdoor adventure.
The City Break
The key to keeping your cool as you jet off for urban adventures is to pack in outfits. Jil Sander's elevated classic shorts are the kind of piece that you can hinge your whole weekend capsule around, ready to be styled with a printed short-sleeved shirt or polo by day, and something altogether more formal by night. You'll want to make sure that anything you pack works hard to earn its place in your suitcase and co-ords fit the bill neatly - BODE's coolly bohemian shirt and trousers can be worn together for head-to-toe getaway flair or paired with your favourite summer staples. A pair of leather sandals or Lemaire's slick mules will bring an element of city-appropriate polish to your more relaxed looks, while a flash of jewellery will give them a luxe finishing touch.
The Country Escape
If you're heading towards pastures green you’ll want to look good while being ready for changeable weather so reach for pieces that can be easily mixed, matched and layered. A lightweight knitted polo and a suave or statement cardigan will take you seamlessly from day to night as well as indoor to out. And, when it comes to footwear, keep all your bases covered with a pair of technical sneakers that can be deployed for comfort or cool depending on your look, and Versace’s love-forever leather boots that have a practical spirit and all the fashion flair you deserve.
The Beach Getaway
Nail your beach, bar and everything in between looks by hunting down the perfect sun-fuelled co-ord - we love the statement-making wavy print of COMMAS' shorts and shirt combo. Worn together with a pair of luxe leather sandals, they'll carry you through to sunset and beyond and double up as cover-ups and poolside staples when needed too. Swimwear is, of course essential, whether you gravitate towards the bold and playful or a quietly stylish classic like Polo Ralph Lauren’s timeless pair of trunks. And don’t forget the finishing touches: a wear-all-day pair of shades and a sun hat that will keep you safe and stylish.
The Action Adventure
Is your weekend away set to involve everything other than sitting still? Fill your holdall with pieces that lean towards the technical and the practical. A pair of running shorts worn with a graphic print sleeveless tee will carry you through most sports you choose to throw yourself at. If you’re cycling and need to up your performance-wear game, reach for Pas Normal Studios' expertly crafted jersey layered over super-stretch bib shorts and – safety first – pack a high-tech helmet too. And don’t forget to stay hydrated whatever you’re doing with a stylish water bottle.
