So we are now free of dark nights and the winter blues, and we’ve even had the odd bit of sunshine giving us hope of more to come. In between all the rainfall that is- summer isn’t here just yet. But if you’ve decided to go away this year the likelihood is that it’s already booked and you have begun the countdown already. Why not start thinking ahead about your holiday wardrobe? It’s not a bad way to pass the time before you head to warmer climes. Google some photos of your holiday destination whilst you shop our RG SS16 collection online, and you’re practically there already. We’ve put together a quick round up of this season’s key pieces to get you started.

Every season has its own print trend, and this year florals and jungle-inspired prints are in. Our Oliver All Over Print T Shirt is available in two of the season’s must-have shades- a deep navy and rusty dark red- and is covered in a mini floral print design. For a bolder print look, try the Sherwood Palm Leaf Print T Shirt , available in a subtle grey marl or soft blue. All are 100% cotton so are soft and cool next to the skin. They look great paired with both chino shorts and jeans, depending on just how good the weather gets where you are.

You’re on holiday, so you are allowed to have fun and let yourself go. This also means having more fun with what you wear. For years the Hawaiian shirt has been the iconic symbol of Brits abroad. These days, it’s done with taste. The Racing Green Sacks Tile Print Shirt is printed to give a subtle and tonal tie-dye flower effect. Printed in deep blue shades on a mid-blue lightweight cotton base it’s easy to wear in the day or dressed up for a night at restaurants and bars. Another contemporary update is the States Large Dot Print Shirt . Cut with a classic square shirt hem the oversized floral effect is made up of lots of small printed dots, inspired by modern digital art. These two shirts will impress the locals, instead of scaring them.

And finally, the inevitable will happen when you go away. It will be hot, and you will have to get your legs out. Showing your knees doesn’t need to be tragic though. Our Justice Chino Shorts are styled like timeless chinos. Classic styling features include side angle pockets, two button down back pockets, a contrast ticket pocket and turn-ups with chambray piping. We’ve added a few personal racing Green touches with the coloured bar tacks and loop-button fastenings on the back pockets. Available in a classic navy and stone, we also have options in deep green and red which you will find surprisingly easy to wear. Alternatively, invest in a pair of Riviera Denim Shorts . Made in a stretch denim they have a slim but comfortable fit. They will last you all summer- both for holidays away and the last minute BBQs that come hand in hand with those unexpected British heatwaves.
