What To Pack For Your Long Weekend Away

What To Pack For Your Long Weekend Away

The long weekend is the perfect opportunity to get away, just make sure you pack a few essentials to ensure you’re suitably attired, without being under, or over, dressed.

The foundation pieces

Start with a pair of chinos; they’re as relaxed as jeans but easier to dress up if you need to look respectable for dinner at the best restaurant in town.

 

Pack at least one white tee. Nothing beats a classic. 

 

Leave the business shirts at home and pack at least one great casual shirt, wear it untucked or unbuttoned over a tee during the day, tuck it in and throw your jacket over the top in the evening. Our new collection of knit shirts and long sleeve polos are ideal. They can easily be dressed up or down whilst always being exceptionally comfortable.

 

 

 

Layering pieces   

Pick your favourite piece of knitwear; just make sure it’s light enough to layer over your shirt and under your jacket.

Speaking of which, your choice of coat depends very much on your destination; a smart raincoat if it’ll be warm but wet (Auckland, most of the time) or a wool overcoat if it’ll be cold (anywhere from Wellington south, from now until spring).

 

 

Dress up with a Blazer

Top it off with a blazer, it’ll look perfectly casual worn over a tee and suitably dressed-up with a shirt underneath.

Adding the final touch

Then bring it all together with a casual belt and some great trainers. Pop it all in a leather weekend bag, and you're ready to go.

The great thing about packing light (and smart) is that you'll still have room in your overnight bag for; notebook (to jot down the revolutionary business idea that "just comes to you" after your second beer) and to pass the time, some light reading.
