Planning a weekend away? Counting down the minutes to the weekend will only make the week drag out even longer, so make the most of the extra time to plan ahead. You’ll want to make sure you have the basics sorted: transport, a camera, and maybe somewhere to sleep, if you’re planning to. There are however, a few sartorial essentials that need to be ticked off as well, so we asked our buying team what their four must-haves were for going away. These guys are the ultimate planners, travelling frequently for work and buying trips - so there's no one better to ask for a stylishly smooth weekend away.

1. COMFORTABLE SHOES

You do not want blisters. We repeat, you do not want blisters. Apart from being the bane of a good weekend, blisters ruin the insides of shoes as well. You don’t want to be on the lookout for nearest pharmacy (if there is one) or fussing with band-aids right when the fun is starting.

Grab a pair of shoes that you won’t mind getting a bit dirty, because while most shoes are washable, when it comes to caked-on mud, you’re at a loss - and nobody wants to chuck out their dollars along with a new pair of sneakers.

2. A WATCH

While having a phone on hand is convenient for photos, constantly glancing at your phone to check the time is a total buzz-kill, particularly when there is the constant temptation of checking social media - so eliminate it by using your watch to check the time. If you’re going to be around water, it’s also handy to have a waterproof watch, opposed to a vulnerable phone. Plus, if you’re going somewhere a little a la fancy, you will also need something to complete the look; something that’s not going to take up space in packing situations.

3. A (CHEAPER) PAIR OF SUNNIES

No one ever wants to be the guy squinting into a sunny photo while everyone else is wearing shades, and fashion aside, sunglasses are also pretty important to protect your eyes as well. When it comes to a weekend away, we recommend leaving your prized pair of sunnies at home, and instead picking up a more reasonable pair with (very importantly) a good UV rating, which most have these days. That way, if they do get lost, cracked, or “borrowed” by your best mate, it won’t leave a bad taste at the end of the weekend.

4. A DURABLE TRAVEL BAG

Last but not least, at the end of the weekend, you want to be able to chuck everything back into your bag without having to think about it. We daresay after all the fun you may even be a bit dusty, so make life easier with a reliable travel bag that fits everything, and isn’t going to break. There’s nothing more frustrating than going to pack and busting the zipper.
