SUNBURN BOHEMIAN UTILITY With the amazing weather recently, I’ve been on the hunt for some perfect and easy throw-on shirts that can be dressed both up and down for day and night. I love this Insight shirt from General Pants. The deep V is a fantastic complement to the pseudo-Orient, semi-painted print, and while I may look like a porcelain vase in the process, there’s nothing a solid khaki pant can’t fix.

Sunglasses GETAWAY CHECKLIST PA C K I N G F O R A S U M M E R W E E K E N D AWAY IS BEST KEPT CONCISE - KEEP CASUAL COOL IN THESE EASY ESSENTIALS. 1. T SHIRTS Stay in classic white, grey marle or navy. Simply stylish, without the ironing when on the move. Avoid anything with slogans or logos - unless you want to look like a teenager. 2. COTTON CHINOS Perfect for after sunset. Pair with a collared shirt or tee, for relaxed style. Chinos can go anywhere and look better with age. 3. LOAFERS Leave your thongs at the beach. When not on the sand slip on a loafer - They are masculine, classic and always impressive. 4. OVERNIGHT BAG Invest in a leather or canvas bag that will last for years. This is an item you will have for some time, so don’t let your wardrobe down with a daggy old duffle bag. 5. SWIM SHORTS Get creative with swim shorts: prints, stripes or colour. Grab a pair that will double as a day short, and anything below the knee is way too long. 1. GENERAL PANTS CO. Sunglasses 4. 2. 5. 3. 1. INDUSTRIE White T Shirt 2. GENERAL PANTS CO. Chinos 3.
