How to dress in Mykonos: LWD & Gladiators

how to dress in mykonos

I may not be a style guru, but I can share with you my insight and tips on how to dress in Mykonos and the Greek islands like a local. Today, I am finally sharing with you one more outfit in Mykonos! I realized that I haven’t posted an outfit since Paris, as the winds here in Mykonos are so strong (like 50km/h strong) every day, all day! Not cool at all for descent outfit photos. But yesterday we decided to take some shots no matter what!

A lwd (little white dress) for me is the number one go-to for summer! What’s more, it is the ideal outfit to match the whitewashed alleys and backgrounds of Cycladic architecture, in Mykonos and Greek islands. I love this dress from Zadig & Voltaire particularly, because the skirt part is super full yet so breezy, loose enough but without making me look like a shapeless sack of potatoes. Pair it with sandals (I love gladiators), and voila! Unfortunately, this dress is not available any longer, but I have shared a slideshow with similar options for you to choose from, below.

I wore this look for an early dinner at Mykonos town, followed up by 10-minute visits to our occupied villas, in order to check that all of our guests are fine, see their dinner has been served etc. There was not a single lady who didn’t compliment this look, especially that handmade bag from Fernweh & Fringe, that I was happy to receive from their amazing designer, Janine. This travel pouch has become the extension of my hand lately, as it is perfect for the island, and can carry all of my essentials with ultimate style, giving my outfits an unexpected, boho-chic touch! My favorite part here is that I can dress like this at work! (hallelujah chorus)

If you are planning a trip to Greece, here is my packing list & essential tips on how to dress in Mykonos and Greek islands.

What’s your favorite summer look? Do you often find yourself getting dressed to match your surroundings? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy vacation and see you next post! Mwah! 🙂

    You’re looking like a Greek goddess. I love the all-white background plus your dress and lace-up sandals bring up the beauty of the place more.

    You look utterly stunning Stella and what a beautiful backdrop! You are lucky to live in such stunning settings.

    Really do like your bag here, it really caught my eye 🙂

    Your gladiator shoes are really lovely with our white outfit, a really beautiful combination of white, blues and natural shades.

    Gorgeous and those photographs make me want to go on holiday to MyKonos straight away!

      Hi Laura how are you my dear? I am so glad you like this post. Regarding that bag, I am really excited of how well everyone reacts when they see it, I think it’s the first time I get so many compliments about my bag every time I wear it! As for Mykonos, I think it should be on your travel list soon! I would be very interested to read a review from you on the places you visit hear and see Mykonos through your point of view, you are really great at what you’re doing!
      Thank you for stopping by and have a great rest of your week! xx
