Plan your wardrobe before you go making sure everything mixes and matches. Natural fabrics to minimise sweatiness. Dresses for sightseeing tend to look more elegant (but I'm still partial to my shorts). Big sunglasses.
I always plan my outfits before I go , including trying everything on. I know that sounds really sad but it makes me feel totally relaxed going away , knowing what I can put together. I take cami tops , patterned cigarette trousers, playsuits , kimono floaty tops for breezy nights and I have lots of statement necklaces , cuffs etc to jazz everything up. Take two Wonderbra ultimate strapless bras , one black , one nude as I think bra straps showing under vests / dresses are a big style no no. Always have my make up on every evening Hands and feet both with coral or nude polish , but that's all year anyway , not just for hols. I love planning my holiday wardrobe , start as soon as I book my holidays ...
A fairly neutral wardrobe of black and white with splashes of khaki and mid blue so everything can be mixed and matched. A straw hat, sunglasses, tan leather tote bag. Leather clutch bag. Flat leather sandals, flipflops, wedge espadrilles.
YY to metallic sandals. I have flat gold leather gladiator style sandals for evening. Most of my accessories are gold so it's easy to Mix and match. Take one other pair - Havannais flip flops for easy on- off at the pool. Love a good try on session Glittery
