Germany (or, more specifically, Berlin) has risen up the international hipness rankings at a phenomenal pace over the last decade. If you and your friends are looking for an icy cool weekend away, Berlin, with its ultra-trendy enclaves of Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain, is where you need to drop your bags.

And if you want to look the part, you could do worse than this awesome outfit based around the German flag's black, red and gold.

Snap up this Fred Perry polo, which picks out the colours on the sleeves and collar, and perhaps team it with these washed-out mid-length shorts and either some killer Nike pool sliders or these retro black running shoes. Throw this slick holdall over your shoulder and you're golden... and black and red.
