MWD: WHAT TO WEAR ON A WEEKEND BREAK

13.05.14

On days spent away, don't compromise on style. In this week's Menswear Diaries we demonstrate the most fashionable ways to dress on days off-duty.

Style for a weekend spent away is a notoriously tricky sartorial scenario. Despite the weatherman's best assurances, it's wise to be prepared for rain or shine, but with only a 48 hour bag by your side options aren't limitless.

For days away practicality should trump style - though that's not to say style shouldn't be at the forefront of your mind. Plump for classic, versatile outerwear that can easily be slipped on or off, depending on the outlook.

Don't plan your outfits according to days either, rather take the pieces which will work best in a variety of different combinations (bold red chinos are probably best left at home).

To inspire your short breaks this SS14 we've devised some stylish outfit builders below.

ON FAMILIAR SHORES

Jackson T-shirt, Guido backpack, Desert chinos , Victory blazerChapman boots 

Those well acquainted with the British weather will know that despite buoyant optimism, a break within the country will realistically involve some temperamental weather. So, to cover all bases, don a layered ensemble which looks stylish both layered up and pared back.

COOL ON THE CONTINENT 

Ricco jacket, Savana trousers, Codey jumper, Geppetto shoes

When travelling to the continent, think simple, classic and above all practical for travel. Try teaming a sportswear-inspired relaxed jumper with a pair of tailored trousers, finishing the look with a crisp Harrington jacket and a pair of blue suede shoes.

RIVIERA REVISITED

Victory blazer, Breeze polo shirt, Gaston belt, Palmero trousers, Anstice shoes 

A major inspiration for our SS14 collection, France's impossibly-glamorous Riviera has long played backdrop to some of the world's most refined social affairs. Follow suit then, and make sure that you're elegantly attired too. For this look to delicate cream chinos, a preppy jersey blazer, and in a nod to Gallic style don blue and white stripes.
