Hello lovelies! It's been a while since the last time I published a guide but here we are, ready to touch on yet another frequently asked question on my instagram dms. What to wear in Greece during summer is something that many of you seem to wonder for a few weeks now. Maybe you are planning on traveling in Santorini, Athens, Mykonos or simply are curious. Today I am going to answer your questions the best way I can.

I have spend 24 years in Greece and the one thing I can defintely vouch for is the warm (somedays too hot) weather. The temperature will almost never fall under 28 degrees nor will rise above 35 but still, if you are not used to the heat you have to mentally prepare yourself.

1. Go for loose, comfortable trousers .

Cotton, linen, silk and jersey in light, neutral colors don't trap body heat and absorb contrary to other fabrics like wool and polyester. 






2. Choose tops and blouses that don't restrict your movements.

The feeling of being restricted by your own clothes is probably the worst during hot, summer days. I personally spend most of my days in Greece wearing off the shoulder tops, basic v-neck t-shirts and loose button up shirts. Any type of lace will most certainly give you the worst tanning lines due to constant sun exposure .

3. If you plan on visiting a Greek Island, avoid wearing heels.

Let's get one thing straight.It is literally imposible to wear heels all day on a Greek Island. You can always pack your favorite heels in order to wear them for a few hours in the nightclub or at the restaurant. but the streets are definitely not made for that kind of footwear. Sandals and sneakers are  by far the comfiest choices.



4. Never go out under the sun without a hat.

During 1pm-5pm the sun can be a danger to your heath especially if you are not used to it. Pick a basic hat design that will look good with pretty much all your outfits and wear it religiously.

5. Nightout.

Evenings can be a little windy in Greek Islands even during summer. Don't forget to pick up a jacket, blazer or at least a scarf to wear around your shoulders. I wouldn't recommend short, loose dresses or tops especially if you are planning on taking a walk.




6. What's in your beach bag?

The one thing you should never forget to bring with you is your sunscreen. Sunbathing can be extremely damaging to your skin without the proper SPF. (I would recomend a 50+SPF protection). Always wear a pair of high quality sunglasses even if you are sitting under a beach umbrella. Have a bottle of water in your bag at all times in order to avoid dehydration.
