Planning a great escape? Count us in.
With an August bank holiday on the horizon (not that we’re counting down the days), pack a bag to match your plans for the long weekend. If you consider yourself a master of minimalist packing, or simply aspire to be, then we’re here to help you simplify your weekend style and make light work of your weekend bag.
Not sure where to start? We’ve got a few suggestions…
First things first: the cotton t-shirt. Because what gets more airtime in your wardrobe than that go-to everyday hero, the humble t-shirt? We thought so.
Reboot your collection with a super soft cotton tee in a regular fit. Whether you’re layering a white t-shirt under a denim shirt (spoiler: we’ve also got that covered below), or infusing your off-duty style with a touch of colour in orange, this t-shirt is your capsule wardrobe’s most underrated piece.
Never underestimate the sartorial power of a great pair of jeans. Your perfect fit denim is out there - we might have found it for you. You're welcome.
A straight leg, relaxed fit and comfortable stretch finish make these track denim jeans perfect for long journeys and casual days. Our only styling tip? Roll up at the ankles for a stylish finish.
Like we said, we’ve got your new denim shirt covered too. For days spent exploring, eating or finding the nearest park, this denim shirt is the perfect fit. With two washes to choose from, the regular-fit shirt promises a versatility that your minimalist attitude to packing desires.
Layered over a graphic tee or buttoned up, embrace double denim by pairing with your favourite jeans, or styled simply with slim fit chinos…
Speaking of which, the next item for your overnight bag is our best-selling Machine Gun Stretch Trousers. A favourite for smart-casual dressing, the slim fit trousers can be kept simple with a cotton tee, or taken out in the evening with a striped shirt.
From light blue to rich moss green, these trousers will kick-start your transitional wardrobe by providing a versatile palette and a base for your favourite tees.
From long train journeys to lazy Sundays (complete with roast dinner), your long weekend commands comfort. Our suggestion? The cosiest sweatshirt you can lay your hands on. Thankfully we’ve got it right here.
When the weekend winds down, this simple grey sweatshirt will offer the cosy finish you need. Plus, it bears a subtle French slogan for a touch of personality.
The striped shirt is a style icon with a permanent front-running position in your capsule wardrobe. There’s no denying the appeal of stripes in all their forms.
For this weekend and beyond, opt for subtle, washed stripes which offer a more muted take on the timeless print. This cotton shirt has a barely-there stripe which adds interest to an otherwise understated piece. Oh, and it's available in three different shades if you're a big fan.
If – and fingers crossed we’re wrong – the sunshine fails you during your weekend escape, bring together your outfits with this yellow raincoat. We love the retro influence on this classic mac, with its relaxed fit, button front and, of course, that bright yellow hue. Windswept walks made that little more stylish.
If the sunshine won’t come to you, after all…
