Summer’s surplus of long weekends is great for several reasons — apart from sunny days on the beach, free days off and Sundays that feel like Saturdays, it’s gives you an extra day to wear more excellent gear.

This outfit is the Platonic ideal of bank holiday get-ups. 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 pants 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.
