Women – For daytime, you will just need a pair of shorts or jeans (in case it is cold), a few colored and white tank-tops to go along with your jeans, shorts and skirts. A printed maxi dress is good for sightseeing and shopping. You can also opt for sundresses and jumpers for the same purpose. Printed or dresses in solid colors will be required for brunches and a cocktail dress for evening outs. Shorts dresses are must haves for nightclubs (dresses by Cavalli and Pucci are always a ‘go’ here), but since the temperature is sure to drop in the evening, do carry a light jacket or a cardigan.
Men – For the beach, pack the usual like shorts and trunks with t-shirts and vests. For shopping and sightseeing, you can go for Bermuda shorts and white tees or loose cotton shirts and chinos. Formal button-down shirts can be paired with trousers. Chinos, slacks and trendy shirts are all cool for nightclubs. A lightweight sports jacket for casual wear and a blazer to add a formal touch can also be packed.
Kids – You can pack t-shirts and shorts for kids. Rompers and flowing skirts along with tops and blouses are good for girls. Boys can go for t-shirts in bold colors and Bermuda shorts. Lightweight jackets will be required for evenings.
Footwear – Comfortable footwear like sneakers and loafers are to be packed. Trendy shoes are of course to be taken so men can go for suede or oxford shoes or a casual pair of sneakers while ladies can go for heels or ballets.
Accessories – A nice bag, chic sunglasses, and lots of sunscreen!
