Europe Summer Packing List: Women’s Clothing
Summer in Europe practically lasts from May to September, but June, July & August are by far the best months to explore and get a real glimpse of the true European summer experience. Although some places will be much hotter than others, in general, European weather is pretty comfortable. Bring items that you can mix and match, including some layering options just in case you have to face a few chilly nights out with a delicious cocktail in hand.
If you’re spending most of your time exploring islands rather than cities, cut down on the number of tops and bring more swimwear. A polished outfit for all your future city strolls will definitely get you feeling extra pumped about your nightly shenanigans. Here are some perfect outfit combinations you should consider bringing along for a European summer holiday:
Dresses and matching sets for comfort and practicality

Europeans love discreet floral prints, romantic-style dresses, and tops. Despite popular beliefs, most of the streets are not made for walking with heels, so make sure to throw in a few pairs of flat sandals or your trusted sneakers.
T-shirts are always on trend

T-shirts are universally-loved and super versatile to wear in a plethora of different ways. During your exploration hours, having a few different t-shirts ready for grabs is extremely practical. Wear them as oversized dresses with a pair of sneakers or, tuck them in your denim shorts to get that effortlessly chic look—bonus point if you opt for the best graphic t-shirts that are equal parts eye-catching and cute. Keep your accessories minimal for an elegant European vibe.
Comfy, chic & Instagram-ready

Obviously, the best trip to Europe needs to stay with you long after you've returned home. We all adore taking photos, especially when we are in a foreign country, so make sure to pack some insta-ready outfits for those "effortless" social media photos you are about to take. Most buildings in Europe are in fact, neutral-coloured so you won't face any issues matching your outfit with your surroundings, however, a sleek, gorgeously-looking dress is always a great idea.
