Weekend Dressing: How to Travel in Style
The freedom of choice in weekend dressing can often be overwhelming when you hang up the weekday work uniform. If you’re going away for a long weekend then it’s essential to wear something with room for movement but without compromising on style. You can still strike the balance between smart and casual by opting for comfortable fabrics and refined cuts.
The black single-breasted knitted cardigan is essential for weekend dressing as it has been crafted from breathable cotton and can work as a layering piece dependent on the temperature.
The Soho look conveys the mood of London’s bustling district: modern, relaxed and stylish.
Just wear the black knitted cardigan over a plain white crew t-shirt to add some contrast and fasten the top button to achieve a slimmer fit or leave it open (depending on how many of the local delicacies you have indulged in).
To smarten up the relaxed style of the cardigan, team with a pair of charcoal chino or crepe trousers with a slight tapering to the ankle to instantly balance out the look.
And finally, slip-on a pair of smart white leather trainers for comfort while you’re running to catch that train.
The Mayfair look channels London’s prestigious district: smart, elegant and well-dressed.
Wear the black single-breasted cardigan with a well-fitting navy crew t-shirt and leave it effortlessly unbuttoned for weekend dressing.
A pair of smart white chinos will add a seasonal spin to the look so offset them against the dark colours to break up the outfit.
A pair of polished leather shoes will finish off the look perfectly so opt for a pair of burgundy leather brogues; softer, warm hues will complement the white trousers without being too contrasting.
