Crystal clear Aegean waters, nightlife that lasts until sunrise and a mouthwatering cuisine, the Greek islands are favored each summer. Aside from it’s rich architectural land and tzatziki menu, Greece has more than 6,000 islands, that each boast something new and exciting to experience. With not enough adjectives to describe the spellbinding scenery of Greece, those full of cultural woes and enjoy getting lost in secluded white washed streets, pack your bags its time to hit the Hellenic seaways.
No trip to the Greek islands is complete without a white-washed wardrobe to compliment its nautical backdrop. All you need is loose fitting clothing, flowing dresses, striped tees and some killer accessories. Swimwear kept to a minimum means you can overhaul on hats, sunnies and gold hard ware to feel like a true greek goddess. Just like Natasha Oakley is doing in her Monday Swimwear bikini.
Match the beautiful scenery of the Ionian seas with a cute floral maxi from Diane von Furstenburg – floaty enough to twirl down steep hill-tops and comfy enough to keep you cool at midday. Your Greek Island outfits needn’t be high maintenance, keep it low-key, a style we like to call, making a statement yet modest.
Walking is the best way to explore Greece and beyond, most of the island’s built up areas are on secluded hilltops where donkeys are the only form of transport. Explore the islands’ idyllic beaches, and quaint villages in a pair of comfortable lace up leather sandals by Cult Gaia. Ideal to wear with shorts and dresses, the Greek’s certainly know how to throw a good party and you won’t want your feet to let you down.
Stacked jewellery is celebrated amongst locals and travelers in Greece. Ideal for sunset seafood dinners, and morning frappé, jewellery layering is the ideal accessory. Add the Jolie Designs stackable Tsavorite and diamond eternity rings for a splash of color to a white linen aesthetic.
Situated amongst the Cyclades, Greece’s most popular collection of islands, you’ll feel as though you have stepped out of a scene from Mamma Mia. Famous for their photogenic views, the likes of Santorini and Mykonos deserve a relaxed wardrobe.
Loose fitting silhouettes and light fabrics will be your friend this vacation, so what better place to start than with a shirt? A button-down is versatile, worn comfortably with the sleeves rolled and guaranteed to keep you cool all day and will keep you warm when the sea breeze sets in come sundown. Throw some color in to contrast the white-washed walls with a patterned button-down by Ralph Lauren.
Add tonal white to your evening wear and complement the vibrancy of nightlife in the streets with white pants or shorts. Rubinacci‘s unlined white line pants make for a notably breezy style ideal with a patterned short-sleeve button-down. While dressing all white is common on the idyllic drops in the ocean, dressing with color will certainly make you stand out from the rest.
Accessories should be neutral, footwear shouldn’t be black and sunglasses are a must. Come sundown you’ll be getting ready for Ouzo and to dance the Rebetiko in a local taverna until sunrise, so get those dancing shoes ready. Neutral toned suede or espadrilles are ideal with tonal clothing of whites and blues against the coastal views.
