In the liminal bliss that is a long weekend, we have so many options of indulgence to choose from. Whether you’re in pursuit of a winery wonderland, a chilled-out staycation or a rendezvous in the living room, dressing for Easter festivities can be interpreted in a whole wardrobe of ways.
Here, we match your extended weekend itineraries with autumnal ensembles. Embrace hot cross buns and butter-soft knits on the couch, or debut seasonal new arrivals at the luxe luncheon you’ve been longing for.
Dressing for Easter festivities can be interpreted in a whole wardrobe of ways
For: winery hopping.
Woman: Collars up. Warm yourself with Aya Muse knitwear and go for cool-girl ease in Wynn Hamlyn denim below.
Man: Look no further than Lardini for a seasonally-hued blazer, made to throw on for crisp vineyard strolls. And keep colouring consistent in warming browns from head-to-toe.
For: at-home entertaining.
Woman: Set your statement-dressing dreams (and a sensuous Cire Trudon candle) alight. Pair a whimsical Alessandra Rich midi dress with golden accents from Alighieri, before finessing with glitzy By Far loafers.
Man: Feel at ease but put-together in monochrome shirting from Acne, paired with cosy Maison Margiela sneakers and dream denim by Balmain. Douse yourself in Clive Christian for a final polish, then resume bar cart sprucing.
For: long lunching.
Woman: Opt for cosy elegance in an Aya Muse knit dress, offset by a striking pair of Balenciaga slingback heels. Adorn with your favourite Botetega for bathroom touch-ups, and reach for laissez-faire outerwear from Alessandra Rich.
Man: Keep things simple with a graphic Maison Margiela tee peeping out from behind some military Acne outerwear. Lardini pants are a must for below, with a relaxed waistband allowing room for copious comfort food.
For: a staycation.
Woman: Cardis are back. And they’re here to stay. Start with a black button-up from Aya Muse, skimming over some Maison Margiela neutral trousers. Explore your holiday surrounds, from town to nature’s abounds. Just add a dazzling Bottega for evening dalliances.
Man: Chocolate-induced solipsism? Feel cocooned by the plush craftsmanship of Yohji Yamamoto, from stitch-detail sweaters to dramatic distressed sneakers. Throw in a Maison Margiela tee and your weekend away uniform is complete.
