We’ve written passionate words in defence of wearing oversized T-shirts to work, and a strong argument for donning sweatpants outside the gym. Now: here's what to wear if you want to stay out all day and look good for 24 hours straight.

Just make sure wherever you’re going has somewhere you can stow your sack for safe keeping.
