YOUR OUTDOORSY OUTFIT
By Gavin Jewkes, 2 May 2017
There are a slew of bank holidays coming your way and if you intend to spend yours doing something more adventurous than the beer-garden hopping and Easter-egg scoffing you did during the last long weekend, we’ve got a terrific outfit for you.
At the heart of this look is the backpack from Doughnut, which nails it in both the fashion and function arenas. It’s robust yet lightweight, making it perfect for shuttling your gear up a mountain (if that’s your vibe), but good-looking enough that you’ll want to continue using it once you’re back in the city. It swallows up an umbrella (essential for the British summer), a water bottle and any layers you shed along the way, and leaves enough room for an enormously replenishing packed lunch.
Lightweight cargo trousers bring some classic camping vibes – happily in a fashion-forward slim-fit, rather than the more functional zip-off-into-shorts variety – while a washed-out flannel shirt and grey hoodie combo provide both a 90s skate edge and all-important insulation against those stiff hilltop breezes. Finish your look with some techy runners from adidas' EQT line, in black – not white – because you’re not a moron and the last time we checked, the countryside is still covered in a thick layer of sneaker-destroying mud.
