Summer’s glut of long weekends is great for several reasons – quite apart from sunny days in the park, free days off and Sundays that feel like Saturdays, it’s gives you an extra day to wear more excellent garms.
OUTFIT FOR A LONG WEEKEND
By Sarah Kershaw, 22 August 2017
This outfit is the Platonic ideal of bank holiday getups. Lots of layering in a low-key 70s palette, with a few necessary accessories on the side – perfect. Start with a fresh white tee layered over a red, striped sweatshirt to keep the retro feel alive, or on hotter days, pack the pullover into your roll-top bag and throw over a striped, short-sleeved shirt for a real summery feel. Keep a classic, camel coach jacket to hand in case the wind picks up.
Dickies cargo trews in khaki are a neutral base whether you’re roaming the countryside or urban exploring, while trusty Vans Old Skool kicks offer a slick and comfy footwear option for all that walking about you’ll be doing. Store your extras in your bag and finish with a pair of round sunnies to complete the long-weekend look.
