When holidaying, appearing ‘put together’ is strategic and rather hard to master. The look you’re aiming for? Naturally sophisticated. In the spirit of road trips and escaping town for the weekend, we’ve devised a fail-safe packing list to make your life a little easier. Ahead, a few essentials to bring on the road.
Heading into town for dinner? You’ll need a blazer for cocktail hour. It’s simple, straightforward and looks damn fresh on. Look elusively cool (and not like a tourist) with our range of Blazers.
Stylish and practical, you can’t go past a pair of crisp, tailored Chinos, to be worn cuffed. A stone-coloured or navy pair is infinitely versatile and can be paired casually or formally. Not to mention they are extremely comfortable when travelling.
This can be dressed up for dinner or worn untucked and unbuttoned for casual day tripping. Pair your shirt with jeans and sneakers, or with a light knit and dress shoes for going out. Try the Tom Shirt.
Think you won’t need sweaters? You’ll regret not bringing them later. For brisk evenings and unexpected dips in temperature, always carry an extra sweater to layer. These go especially well with Jackets & Coats. Try these Knits.
You can always do with a touch of colour in your travel wardrobe. Play with patterns and prints, from statement stripes and checks, which come in handy when you’re inevitably roped into a fancy dinner or impromptu drinks with other holiday-goers. . Try these: Whiston; Amhurst & Isola.
Don’t even think about being that guy on the plane in flip-flops. Loafers hit just the right mark between not too dressed up and not too dressed down. Try these Loafers
