Escape the City: What to Pack for a Weekend Away

If you’re lucky enough to be escaping the city for the Bank Holiday weekend the big questions is: What to pack? Whether you’re holidaying on the English coast or you’re venturing somewhere slightly more exotic, it’s vital to ensure your suitcase is brimming with easy pieces that are versatile enough to wear while you relax and when you need to look a little more refined too.

The Journey

Plane, train, or car: no matter how you’re getting away it’s vital to ensure you find an outfit that’s unrestrictive without being unsightly. When travelling comfort should be paramount, and our cashmere and lambswool loungewear sets will keep you feeling free without getting you turned away from the executive lounge.

Holidaying at Home

Regardless of whether you’re spending a long weekend in Whitby or Whitstable, the great British summer can be more than a little unreliable. Make sure to pack versatile, lightweight layers that can keep you warm when the blustery winds pick up but won’t leave you feeling stifled if the sun does show its face. Our Sea Island Cotton knitwear is a wonderfully luxurious option for staying smart in the changeable English weather, while cooler climes may call for a chunkier knit like our new Guernsey jumper.

Travelling Abroad

If you’re travelling further afield for a few days spent poolside with a cocktail in hand then you’ll want to fill your suitcase with light, breathable pieces that will keep you cool but won’t look out of place if you find yourself heading for a fancy dinner or two. Available in new shades for the season, our iconic Riviera Polo Shirt is just the thing for understated yet sophisticated holiday style. Throw it on with our sky blue swim shorts and top it of with a sleek pair of Sunspel x Cubitts Sunglasses. When the evening draws in, match our  classic Piqué shirt with chinos and summer loafers for a laidback summer look.
