One of the best things about the weekend is that you’re at the liberty to wear what you want. But knowing how to transition from work-to-casual could find you in a pickle, and before you know it, the weekend is over. Here’s the best 5 looks for you to master: say goodbye to your weekend wardrobe woes.
When you’ve made it to Friday, chances are you’ve abandoned the shirt and tie, in favour of something more comfortable in the office. In this instance, keep your choice of attire simple with designer details so you can quickly head to the local for a pint or two. A Gucci horse-bit loafer in chocolate brown is a timeless necessity, which pairs well with an equally timeless Drive de Cartier 18K pink-gold and alligator strap watch. Reiss’ patch-pocket blazer looks equally handsome with Gitman’s vintage button-down Oxford shirt.
If you’re an urbanite like many of us, chances are you’re craving the fresh air with a spot of rambling. George Cleverley’s leather boots, bench-made in England using the highest quality Freudenberg leather are best paired with Orlebar Brown’s straight-cut chinos. If you’re still not convinced with heavy layering, Brunello Cucinelli’s gilet over Reiss’ wool-blend crew neck jumper keeps you warm without the heft of an overcoat.
Gentlemen, always remember the details, particularly when you want to woo her. Paul Smith’s slim fitting jeans gains the illusion of a broader torso, so pair them with Ted Baker’s light grey jumper. A quality sand coloured suede jacket, as seen by Michael Kors, offers casual-cool that compliment’s Tag Heuer’s Carrera Calibre 5 Day-Date rose-gold accents. And shoes, the make-or-break asset in any affair. Smart trainers finesse a youthful and on-trend look, and Lanvin’s croc-embossed leather kicks boast impeccable craftsmanship she’ll spot a mile away. NB: ditch the bi-fold wallet in favour for Mulberry’s sleek card holder.
Prada’s two-buttoned slim fit 120s suit not only serves the boardroom, because you’ll probably find yourself at a ‘table for two’ rendezvous in London’s Mayfair. Pair them with classic Oxford lace ups by Church’s and keep the flair focused on Turnbull & Asser’s pocket square only. Thomas Pink’s poplin white shirt is the hero here, because it’s the wardrobe staple that sees you through any occasion. Whilst belts tend to favour the office environment, instead wear a suitably fitting Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage dress watch – and set the bar high (so to speak).
Sunday, for the most part, is a day of relaxing, or the dread of work preparation for Monday. A.P.C’s sunday-friendly fitted joggers and Orlebar Brown’s white t-shirt are suitable enough for slouching or gymming (you’d feel less guilty in them if you opt for the latter activity). And Apple’s iWatch ensures you’re enticed to beat your exercising goals. If you decide to leave the house, rest assured your Givenchy’s all black trainers and Polo Ralph Lauren’s zip hoody prove acceptable sophistication when you sport Bang & Olufsen’s wireless headphones.
