Escape In Style

Friday June 30, 2017

The summer holidays are almost here and whether you’ve booked a city sojourn, a beach break or a country staycation, escape in style! Here’s our guide to popular holidays, complete with sartorial packing suggestions.

City Escapes

From Brussels to Barcelona, Venice to Paris, what could be more stimulating than exploring the sites of a vibrant city? Escaping to a European city is a wonderful way to embrace the culture, sample local dishes and enjoy a spot of shopping in traditional boutiques.

What to Pack

Exploring art galleries, museums and historic architecture calls for a relaxed yet smart outfit. A cool cotton shirt teamed with chino shorts should be your staple. Comfortable casual shoes are a must as you will spend most of your time exploring the city by foot.

Beach Breaks

A sunny sojourn by the sea is the perfect holiday to get away from it all and relax. Whether you’re strolling along beautiful sandy beaches or lounging by infinity swimming pools, it’s time to leave the everyday stresses behind you and soak up the sun with a cocktail.

What to Pack

Hit the beach in a pair of bright sporty swim shorts. Team them with our handcrafted leather sandals which are a stylish choice for a sunny holiday. Or look smart by the pool bar by adding a lightweight linen shirt and a white panama hat.

Country Staycations

Famous for its beautiful rural settings, picturesque villages and grand manor houses, the English countryside is a charming destination for a summer escape. What could be more relaxing than a bracing walk in the fresh air followed by well deserved refreshments at a traditional village pub or an English tearoom.

What to Pack

Exude classic leisurely style with a lightweight linen blazer teamed with a smart white shirt and casual chinos – perfect for afternoon tea and country pub meals. A summer holiday in the UK does not guarantee sunshine, so don’t forget your brolly!
