Weekend Wear: Everything You Should Pack For a Weekend Getaway
Packing for a weekend away is easier said than done, especially when the weather can’t seem to make up its mind. These versatile pieces can handle whatever you might encounter, rain or shine, without making you look like you’ve dressed solely to combat the elements.
This military-inspired coat trades the typical heavy waxed canvas for a lighter polyester, which will keep you warm and dry without overheating.
2. A.P.C. U.S. Mens Hoodie, $240
This classic layering piece comes in the perfect shade of grey. If the sun comes out, ditch the coat and wear this as your outer layer.
3. TOMORROWLAND Summer Milano Pants, $415 at Nordstrom
TOMORROWLAND’s take on the jogger is a dressier affair, mixing soft knit material and elastic cuffs with a trouser-like cut. They’re versatile enough to pair with a sweatshirt during the day or an oxford for dinner.
4. Lacoste Sport Taffeta Hat, $50
This minimalist hat doesn’t scream sporty, but it benefits from Lacoste’s expertise in the area. The bright white colour reflects the sun’s rays, while the taffeta material wicks away sweat.
5. Longchamp Cricket Travel Bag, $730
Longchamp is famous for their spacious, no-fuss totes. This oversized version comes complete with a handsome stripe design, leather handles and a removable shoulder strap.
Tonal blues always make for an eye-catching colour combination, and Coach deploys it to perfection on these retro suede-and-leather sneakers.
