It's safe to say that Summer is finally here! And with that comes bronzed tans, late nights, and unforgettable vacations! Many people opt for a trip to Europe… and could we really blame them? Think of the food, the architecture, the fashion! What more could we want? If you're headed on a big Euro trip this season, keep reading to make sure you're packing the best looks that will even have Parisian chic girls turning their heads!

If Greece is your destination, obviously you'll need a lot of white and blue. This very hot country typically has a high temperature of 104 degrees Fahrenheit, so clearly, many bathing suits and slinky sandals will be worn. Throw on a white linen button-down, some blue Levi shorts, and a floppy sun hat to fit in with the locals!

Italy is yet another go-to for those with the travel bug. And it's a perfect spot for warm weather thanks to the numerous festivals usually located in a historic venue filled with live music and amazing food. When getting dressed in Italy, think of flowy and breathable fabrics, and while in Greece, fun patterns can be great - simple but elevated basics would be our choice for an Italian summer. Also don't forget to pack many dresses, skirts, trousers, linen tops, and chic sunglasses!

Those headed to Spain should know that it's going to be filled with many other tourists going to see the beautiful country. Which again, means the hot weather will feel even hotter! Similar to other European countries, choose comfortable clothing as there will be a lot of walking involved. A good pair of white sneakers or comfy sandals should do the trick. Don't forget accessories - from hoop earrings, long necklaces, body chains, headbands, and head scarfs. These are a must to get that perfect Insta shot with the insane architecture in the back! We'd also recommend a bag with a zipper - like a cute fanny pack or a shoulder baguette bag because, unfortunately, there are a lot of pickpocketers when traveling abroad.
