Totally tempted by the shades of blue and white, Greece will never let you settle for any other colour. But here’s the hack, ditch the whites and grab all the other colours in your closet.This is no-brainer, simply opt for all the colours that you have stored till date for the occasional summer daywear. Be it march, April or September, Greece will let you keep your style effortless yet chic in all the breathable summer outfits.
So, while you are upgrading your summer wardrobe, without much hesitation, you can simply pack all of them for Greece.
Best time to visit Greece, is June to August. I went there in July and honestly, I experienced a bipolar weather in Greece. It was super hot during the day and most importantly, very windy. I think this is the prime reason I will ask you to carry flowy outfits for pictures. The evenings in Greece are usually pleasant and cold. I carried a jacket and shrug for the night.The weather in Greece can be really oppressive,so I would really urge you to chalk your plans during summers, before it hits August and starts raining.
What to wear?
All hail flirty prints, nautical stripes, quirky patterns, flowy skirts and crop tops for all the makeshift tropical vibes. Not just a super comfortable ensemble, but the weather here, will happily let you sport all the fabrics with ease. I selected lace, crochet, bohemian silhouettes and bright outfits for Greece.
And if dresses bore you, go for flowy pants, culottes, palazzos, high slit skirts and get the vibe on!
For the beaches, I stocked up on neon swimwear. Floral monokinis and colourful bralettes and tankinis are your best friend. So, I kept my look versatile, fun and stylish. My favourite pick was the off- shoulder floral print monokini which I paired with bright big sunnies.
Shoes were the final deciding factor for me. Considering the amount of travel and walking, I picked comfortable footwear. I took only one pair of white sandals, that conveniently teamed up will all my outfits. A styling hack that I used was to wear either white footwear, white patterns or colours that compliment white instead of going all white with my outfits.
What else? Gladiators, sandals, flip-flops, sliders, espadrilles and anything that allows you to walk miles and be yourself.
When you’re at the beach, hats are your bae. Be it floppy hats or boater hats, the list seems never-ending. I picked up a straw hat to style with my lace look. If you are feeling a bit experimental, go for striped hats, and get the edge.
Keeping my look natural, I accessorized all my outfits with layered neckpieces and simple hoops. I had a mixed bag of shades throughout the trip, switching, to keep them coordinated with my outfit.
I used a big tote to carry all my beach essentials. Throughout the trip, I think I can safely say that it was a smart choice to take a nude shade of bag, which can be used in multiple ways, either as a crossbody or a waistbag. Like my white sandals, I used this bag for all my outfits.
Barring this, I carried a sunscreen and also bought their local sunscreen “ALOHA”, and it was the best sunscreen I have ever used. I suggest you to buy the same if you’re in Greece.
Parading my natural hair and my hair colour, I let my hair loose, literally. Nude makeup for the day and a bit of bold for the night, but there is no harm in experimenting with pop shades during the day. Nude and coral tones, with a bronzed look, might be a perfect match to complete your look in Greece, as it worked for me. Also, matte over gloss, any day!
