We’ve rounded up the pieces from Country Road that will make stepping into the season brilliantly easy.
As the days get longer and our social calendars fill up, the promise of summer washes over us like a warm breeze. And while the welcome change in season signals a switch to lighter layers, it also marks a return to grand plans. With an abundance of good times on the horizon, the last thing you need to be left questioning is ‘What to wear?’. Fortunately, Country Road has mastered our great Australian summer with the quietly luxurious pieces that go the distance of the season. Whether you’re heading out for after-work drinks, a weekend away or a long, relaxed Christmas lunch, we’ve curated the new arrivals you need to cover all bases.
The Polo Update
At once relaxed and polished, the polo makes for the ultimate summer wardrobe essential. A refreshing take on shirting where you might have opted for the classic button-up, think of the polo as a means of offering up a dose of dapper without compromising on comfort. Notoriously soft, Country Road’s Plain Knit Polo feels fresh with its open trophy collar. When it comes to styling, textured neutrals work better together. Consider pairing it back with the Organically Grown Linen Drawcord Short or your favourite chinos when the moment calls for sharp and stylish.

Out of Office
Aside from total relaxation, weekends away provide ample ground for personal style. When the weekend calls for something comfortable to lounge in yet smart enough for lunch at the pub, let a great tee, well-cut shorts and box-fresh kicks do the heavy lifting. The striped T-shirt is a mainstay in every stylish man’s wardrobe and this crew neck cut flatters as a stand-alone piece or everyday layer. Investing in new shorts is a no brainer too, with black or navy making for a subtle graphic contrast. Polish it all off with a luxurious weekender, the ultimate nod to good taste. Crafted in responsibly sourced leather, Country Road’s signature Leather Logo Tote is ready for adventure (coming soon).

For the nights when the temperature drops, a sweater on hand is essential. After spending an extended period in sweats, upgrade your old favourite with a perfectly weighted pullover proudly made from Verified Australian cotton. A partnership between Country Road and Oritain, the verification process works to scientifically trace the fibres back to Australian farms to help support better land management. Conscious and cool, it’s as versatile as you.
