On Trend: Summer Weekend Dressing

Overhaul your off-duty wardrobe in preparation for the long weekend, and make sure you mark the end of summer with style. Whatever your holiday plans, be they a weekend away on the v or a coastal staycation – or a few days frequenting your favourite local haunts – looking good will only serve to heighten the fun of an extra day (or two) off work. Unleash your inner man-at-leisure with our guide to easy pieces for a relaxed-but-well-turned-out weekend.

THE TEE

The cornerstone of any weekend look, logo T-shirts make a statement without the associated effort. Elevate your casual wardrobe with Valentino’s VLOGO Tee, or channel your inner preppy with Gucci’s leisurely tennis motif. Heading to the country? Burberry’s new logo T-shirt is the streetwear equivalent of a houndstooth jacket and trench.

THE SLIDERS

Uphold the great British tradition of a day at the seaside whatever the weather in a pair of stylish sliders. Gucci’s rubber GG pair and Off-White’s signature industrial slides are, unsurprisingly, just as suitable for a short-haul weekend somewhere sunny as they are a coastal retreat in the UK. Whatever your destination, we’d recommend packing a pair, just in case the sun decides to shine. Fish and chips, please.

THE SUNGLASSES

Throw some shade, a bit like that grey cloud over there that’s threatening to empty itself all over your barbecue, with a pair of sunglasses from Gucci, Prada or Saint Laurent. They’ll give your outfit a suitably devil-may-care attitude, even when you’re standing alone and soggy at the grill with a bunch of hungry mouths to feed.

THE WHITE TEE

Throw off your troubles, let go of your cares, and step into the weekend with a pair of box-fresh trainers from Alexander McQueen or Moncler. Aspiring sporty types should opt for Valentino’s trek-inspired sneakers or Lanvin’s athletic mesh style – perfect come Sunday when faced with a long and arduous walk home from the pub.
