With its warm weather and sandy beaches, Spain is one of the most popular destinations for holidaymakers. Package holidays to Spain are exceptional travel options for individuals who want to enjoy a one of a kind vacation in the beautiful country of Spain. But, like with any holiday, what essentials do you pack that make the most of the limited space available?
In the summer
At the beach
To cover all bases in getting that beach look, pack laid-back items such as flip-flops, shorts and a sarong to go with your usual swimwear. Extras such as a hat or sunglasses can also complete a look. Flip-flops are often worn by Spaniards indoors, but its best not to wear them around town for fear of sticking out like a sore thumb.
Around town, locals dress conservatively and take pride in the way they look. So, starting with footwear, pack a pair of comfortable flats and sandals which can be combined with dresses, trousers, jeans and a skirt. The trick is to pack neutral clothing that can be mixed to give you a range of different looks.
In the evening
In the evening, you should aim for a stylish or casual-smart look, depending on the occasion. For dining out, a dress is ideal whilst jeans, a top and flats are perfect for a casual evening.
Spring & Autumn
It may not seem like it, but for the locals this time of the year is a cold one, and they dress accordingly. Jumpers, jeans and boots or robust shoes are essential and can be combined for a number of styles. Also, functional accessories such as a scarf can tie together a look whilst keeping you warm.
In the evening
When the sun goes down at this time of year, the evening can become chilly. Therefore, a combination of style and warmth is preferred, such as a dress combined with a jacket.
Style and efficiency
Traveling to Spain, you will experience a different way of life which extends to the clothes that people wear. You will see in this country that the fashion is to go for a more conservative look whilst still looking stylish. With these things in mind, I hope this article has given you some ideas for packing the right clothes that make best use of the space in your suitcase.
