What To Wear In The Greek Islands: Top 5 Essentials

I consider myself blessed to be living almost half of the year, in one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Mykonos. I usually spend a minimum of five months here and I am more than happy to share my tips with you on what to wear in the Greek islands and more (feel free to ask)!

A vacation wardrobe for Greece, should be light and casual. The atmosphere in the Greek islands is really laid back, so casual clothing is a must. When planning what to wear in Greece in summer, pack tank tops, denim shorts, flat sandals and light dresses. These can all be in bright colorful shades to reflect the season.

To ensure your wardrobe allows you to blend with the locals, remember that Greek islands are known to be casual and boho. And since life is simple in the Greek islands, so is this list of essentials on what to wear in the Greek islands.

What to wear in the Greek islands

#1 Little White Dress

You will be experiencing very high temperatures for sure, so a little white dress is perfect to keep you cooler. I really prefer dresses than shorts for airy versatility.

#2 A bag that goes with everything

A bag that can go with all your outfits and can fit your essentials is what you should opt for if you want to travel light. This Chloé Drew bag in cement pink (mini size) can fit surprisingly many things for its size. And really goes with everything, as I have worn it on my wedding day, and with a super casual look like this one.

#3 Flat leather sandals

Since there are many historic and beautiful sites throughout any place in Greece, make sure you have the appropriate footwear with you. A pair of flat sandals in nude or black is the best option for day to night outfits. Remember, the easiest way to explore and get around on the Greek islands is on foot. In many cases, it is the only way, so comfortable walking shoes are really an essential.

#4 Stylish sunglasses

You will definitely need sunglasses if you are traveling to Greece, even during the winter. Pick a style that suits you and goes with as many outfits as possible if you like to travel light.

#5 Denim jacket

Although it can be really hot in Greece during the summer months, at night, a light jacket will protect you from the drop in the temperatures and sea breeze. Remember it’s the coolest way to add a cool/edgy touch to a summer dress, by wrapping it around your wais or draping it over your shoulders.

Tips

Keep it light and simple. Greece is really very casual.

A few well-chosen pieces of jewelry will transform any outfit.

Pack a light jacket (like a denim one) or a pashmina as evenings in the Greek islands can be chilly.

Opt for thin and summer-appropriate materials such as light cotton and linen for extra breathability.

I hope you enjoyed reading my essentials list and tips on what to wear in the Greek islands, and look forward to read your comments.

    Wonderful suggestions dear Stella! A white dress and flats sandals are the best easy way to be well dressed all day long! Add some jewelry and other seasonal accessories and you are ready. This dress is gorgeous on you! I love these sandals, wish i was i little bit taller to wear them too. Kisses dear Stella, enjoy your summer and working days in Mykonos!

      Ho lovely to hear from you Helene! How are you darling? For gladiators, since you like them so much, if you think you don’t have the necessary height to wear them, you can try a pair like this one with adjustable lace and straps, instead of a fixed height. That way you can tie them lower, and voila 😉 Thanks a lot for your wishes and have an amazing summer my friend! xoxo

    Those sandals are too gorgeous! I have a black pair just like these.
    When I think little white dress – I almost never think of an actual tshirt dress. It’s so obvious and easy to wear.
    I love how you have matched your sunnies to your bag and shoes.
    And I wish I could afford a chloe! they are so divine!
    The greek islands looks like my type of place!
    Love love

    Thanks Stella for all the tips. Greek style is slightly different than the one by the Adriatic Sea so it’s great you pointed out we should go casual.

    Some lovely tips there, Stella. The LWD as opposed to the LBD would be a must. And I love that little white dress you are wearing.

        Each day is warmer than the last, and I’m developing a nice tan that will look lovely with something white. I’m fine, but have missed you. My flight tickets have arrived, so July1st. Italy here I come. The white building behind you looks interesting.
        Kisses, Jo

          It’s the beautiful Paraportiani Church, one of the most famous landmarks in Greece 🙂 I can understand how excited you feel about your vacation, and can’t wait to see photos! There are only two weeks left. I try to work too on my tan during work breaks, and missed you too! <3

    Greece is seriously one of the most beautiful islands. A place I hope to visit sometime soon. Stella, you look absolutely beautiful. And can we talk about how fabulous your gladiator sandals are? So good! Thanks for sharing your tips. I love that the atmosphere in Greece is laid back, which is nice when your vacation. Hope you’re having a great week!

    My dear Stella. I notice in your selection of favorite white dresses you do not include you gorgeous wedding dress. To my mind that dress could be worn for other occasions. Though not to attend a wedding. I do hope you wear it again. It’s a dress in which to be seen. Oh, I’m sooo in love with that pretty ladder and lace swing dress.
    A kiss, Jo x

      16/06/2017 / 10:06

      Oh definitely, my intention behind the dress selection is that I wanted to wear it another time! I think with black stilettos and a leather jacket and belt it would be perfect for fashion week! 😉

    This is such a lovely post gorgeous! Will definitely visit Greece one day so this guide is perfect. Love the laidback style, it’s the best one for vacations, especially when exploring. The LWD sounds like the perfect item and love the one you’re wearing. So chic to do it with beige and denim!

    Have a lovely weekend Stella! Xx

      I really do hope you visit one day soon my dear Yasmin! A visit to Greece is an amazing experience. When you do, make sure to have as much time as possible in your hands, as all islands are so close to each other, which makes Greece the perfect destination for island hopping! Feel free to let me know when you’re coming, I will be more than happy to inform you or help you out 😉 Kisses!

    I totally feel like you’ve capture the the Greek island style with this casual yet put together ensemble. I absolutely love your lace up gladiator sandals and your fun sunglasses. I’m so excited to be wearing more dresses now that it has warmed up here in Vancouver. Wish I could wear sandals to work =P

      So glad you like them my dear Rina! I am obsessed with gladiators but at work I keep my sandals a little less loud 😉 Happy Friday! x

    I love this effortlessly chic look. The H&M white dress is such a great one for summer. I adore the bag and shoes though. Accessories really elevate a look, don’t they? 🙂 I can’t wait to return to Greece. I’d love to island hop! Your style is truly one to follow for when I visit. 🙂
