When I’m on holiday, I tend to go for tailored linen trousers in earthy colors like brown, sand or khaki with shirts or polos in olive, navy or a crisp white. Here’s a tip: An over shirt or shirt jacket is a great choice in these colors. It´s a more relaxed, but still incredibly stylish, alternative to the classic blazer and is normally found with two or four front pockets. I wear my Ingenieur with these pieces to bring balance, adding a little bit of structure to the loose silhouette.
In terms of footwear, consider packing a pair of loafers, espadrilles or soft suede slippers. I find them surprisingly chic even combined with a linen suit, shirt and tie during a late-night dinner overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
