What to Wear for a European Summer

In this blog post, Olivia + Laura are sharing what to wear for a European summer, whether you're travelling to Europe or not!

If you’ve been on Instagram recently, it’s likely you’ve been seeing people living their best lives summering throughout Europe. Prepare to be sick of us cause we will be heading there in just a few days!

We've compiled a list of essential clothing items that are inspired by European summer, which you can add to your wardrobe and wear on repeat! Whether you're actually traveling to the Amalfi Coast or just embracing the European vibes while spending a weekend at home, these items will keep you on-trend and on-theme.

Bon Voyage!


Linen Anything

The best summer fashions are those that serve multiple purposes at once: they show your style while also keeping your body cool. Linen does just that. From linen pants to dresses, the options are endless.

Effortless Summer Dresses

When we're travelling, we want easy, comfortable and versatile. These effortless summer dresses are perfect for just that. Easy to accessorize for day or night!

Chunky Sandal

This chunky sandal trend is a must for European summer. Swap out your walking shoes for a sandal at night, the thick sole makes them perfect to walk in!

Vest Top

We love a vest, whether it be a cozy oversized knit for winter or a more structured waistcoat for summertime. Europeans love an effortlessly chic tailored look, you'll blend right in!


If you're heading to a beach town, crotchet is the way to go! Wear it is as a swimsuit coverup or on its own, it's airy and chic either way.

Silk Scarves

Keep your hair at bay with some silk scarves or wear them as tops over linen pants! There is no right or wrong way to wear these.

Tie Front Tops

Tie-front tops are the new open back! It's the kind of top that makes you look effortlessly chic with very minimal effort!

Eyelet Emobroidery

Similar to linen, eyelet is the ideal summer fabric: easy and breezy. We've been seeing eyelet detailing on just about every piece of clothing, from blouses to shorts to dresses, but this trend has been a summer wear staple of centuries!

New Balance Sneaker

Who are we kidding, a comfortable shoe is an absolute must in Europe. No need to sacrifice style with New Balance sneaks!

Straw Bag

A straw bag gives us all the European vibes, whether we're in Europe or not! Great for days at the beach or a picnic!


Thank you for reading this week's blog post! We hope you are feeling all the European summer vibes, cause we are! Keep an eye on our Instagram for our upcoming trip and the fashion we'll be rocking.

Bon voyage,
