Memorial Day - Weekend Getaway


Our friends in the USA are facing their first long weekend of the summer this week, with Memorial Day rounding things off on bank holiday Monday. The perfect time to escape to the coast or country and soak up some summer sun, we pull together our favourite weekend looks for American guys and girls. Roadtrip optional...

Your getaway look should be cool and easy to travel in. Cropped trousers with a touch of stretch make those long car journeys bearable, and choose a loose, silky top that's light and airy.

Take comfortable flats in twisted gold and a roomy handbag for all those travel essentials.

Weekend dressing lends itself so effortlessly to a preppy look - which is practical travelwear too.  The chino is your hero piece (so light and easy), then pull on a cool, un-buttoned grandad shirt and layer up with a marl knit, if required.
