When it comes to your everyday work wear, you’re sorted. You have a few well-tailored suits that fit you perfectly, a selection of smart shirts, a rack of ties and a whole drawer full of suitable socks. At the weekends, however, you struggle to put together relaxed looks that see you feeling just as at home at the footy or pub as sitting down to Sunday dinner with the family.
Check out these suggestions to help you put together a simple weekend wardrobe that will see you through anything your social calendar throws at you.
Team a casual shirt with tailored shorts for the perfect summer look. Roll up the sleeves (or opt for short sleeves if you prefer this style) and wear with white trainers or casual brogues for a relaxed look that’s nevertheless smart enough to take you from the beer garden to dinner with friends.
If you’re struggling to find the perfect shirt, check out Farah Shirts, available from retailers such as https://www.ejmenswear.com/men/farah. The perfect blend of casual and smart, these shirts will see you right through summer.
Nothing signals the start of summer like the first day spent at the beach. The key to looking casual yet still put-together is in the quality of your clothes. Don’t be tempted to just throw on any old t-shirt – something you got free from the pub on the last St. Patrick’s Day, for example, or that faded t-shirt you bought on holiday four years ago. Splash out on a few good-quality polo shirts and plain t-shirts and you’ll look casual without looking scruffy. When it comes to shorts, choose between chino-style for a smarter look and regular gym shorts if you’re feeling more sporty. Finish your look with a stylish backpack – according to GQ Magazine, they’re making a comeback this summer.
Of course, summer doesn’t always mean warm weather in the UK. If temperatures dip, wear a checked shirt open over a white t-shirt for a laid-back, casual look that will keep you covered up.
Whether you’re off for dinner or drinks, a pair of dark denim jeans and shirt will be hard to beat. Roll up your sleeves if you want a more relaxed look, and finish with mid- to dark-brown casual shoes.
