What to Wear in Greece: Your Holiday Vacation

Greece is undoubtedly on the bucket list of every international traveler and is a destination that you can return to again and again. Whether you are heading to the cities, the islands, or a little bit of both, you will find that the country is every bit as wonderful and charming as you imagine. While you are preparing for your trip, you want to make sure you have the appropriate garments and beachwear collection, as the right outfits will help you feel more aligned with the local vibe.

The weather in Greece is hot and sunny in the summer, so it is also vital that you have the right pieces to keep you feeling cool and comfortable. We are here to help you make those decisions! Read on for everything you need to know about what to wear in Greece for your upcoming holiday vacation.

What To Wear in Greece for Your Vacation:

1. Linen Dresses

There is nothing that screams "Greece vacation" more than a beautiful linen dress. As a material, linen is both practical and stylish as it is light and airy but still looks put together. No wonder many Greek women also wear linen shirts on a daily basis! Linen is ideal for days of adventuring, time spent at the beach or pool, and in the evening, as you won't find yourself sweating as much as you would while wearing, for instance polyester.

2. Relaxed Bottoms

Along with your collection of linen shirts, you also want to pack a couple of different relaxed bottoms. Ideally, you want to have a couple of pairs of women's summer shorts as well as some linen pants. These two types of bottoms will see you through almost anything that your Greek vacation brings your way.

Similar to linen shirts, linen pants are fantastic for keeping you cool, comfortable, and chic. A couple of pairs in neutral colours have a classic look and can be styled with the rest of your suitcase.

When it comes to summer shorts, you also have several style options. A pair of high-waisted black shorts are the perfect companion for any Greek vacation wardrobe, especially if you want to wear colorful shirts or bikinis. Additionally, it is always good to have a pair of beautiful, feminine shorts. At Scarlett Poppies, we have a pair that are hand-embroidered on lightweight drapery fabric. They feature a cord string on an elasticated waist to help you achieve that effortless feel that your summer wardrobe requires.

3. Stylish Swimsuits

Of course, no Greek vacation wardrobe will be complete without a swimsuit (or two). Whether you prefer to wear bikinis, tankinis, one-pieces, or a combination of styles, there are plenty of designs on the market to ensure that you find the appropriate one for you.

Keep in mind that if you are spending time on the Greek Islands, you will find that many days you are wearing your swimsuit and cover-up as your entire outfit, so pack accordingly!

4. One-Piece Outfits

A couple of rompers, dresses, and jumpsuits provide the simplest outfit options for when you are on holiday. You don't have to overthink what you are going to wear. Simply throw one of these pieces on, add your shoes and accessories, and voilà, you are ready to go!

Some of our favorite pieces in the shop are timeless jumpsuits that you will find yourself reaching for both before, during, and after your Greek vacation. Our Morning Breeze black jumpsuit is both feminine and effortless thanks to its vintage-inspired ruffles, fine pintuck waist details and wide legs.

Alternatively, if you are looking for a dress to stand the test of time, consider our Ticket to Paradise, a tiered mini dress with vintage lace inserts that comes in sand with a silver chain tassel and onyx black with an antique brass tassel.  

5. Comfortable Shoes

No matter where you are traveling in Greece, you will want to do a lot of exploring, which means a lot of walking. However, there are cobblestones everywhere, so you want to make sure you have the appropriate shoes. After all, the last thing you want is to have to cut short your exploring because your feet hurt! For this reason, it is recommended that you pack a pair of fashionable sneakers and comfortable sandals (with an ankle strap and a sturdy sole) so that your feet are protected. We suggest Ancient Greek Sandals, beautiful hand - crafted sandals that are comfortable yet stylish.

These types of shoes can be worn during the day and then styled with your evening outfits so that you are always ready to explore. However, it is almost impossible to wear heels while walking on the extremely hilly cobblestone streets, so it is better to leave them at home.

Final Fashion Thoughts

Curating your Greek wardrobe is the first step to immersing yourself in the relaxed and chic lifestyle that this country offers. All of our pieces at Scarlett Poppies are exquisitely crafted with handcrafted details to ensure that they not only last forever, but also make you feel your best self every time you wear them.
