I have been 2 or 3 times in Santorini so I have a little experience on what you really need !
So , let’s start with what to wear in Santorini
First of all I want to clear up something about the weather . I guess that you will visit Santorini between April and October , right ? Usually in Greece and in Santorini this period the weather is generally good ! There will be some bad days with a little rains and clouds in the start ( April-May) and some at the end (late September – October) but ,as I said ,you’ll probably face some pretty good weather ! That’s why you are heading to one of the most beautiful islands of the world , right ?So , you aren’t going to need coats or boots , just a light cardigan and some sneakers if you are heading there at the start or at the end of the season , ok ?
‘’If you are going April-May or September-October, you should pack with you a light cardigan a pair of leather sneakers and a small umbrella for the rainy days ‘’
Now we can move on to the beautiful things!!!!
1. STATEMENT HATS
You are going to one of Greece’s most beautiful islands without a beautiful straw hat ? That’s not possible ! You will need a hat not only for the style of it but so you don’t burn from the hot Greek sun ! After the rise of the Jacquemuse , hats have become maybe the most needed fashion accessory for summer ! And I totally agree with this ! There’s no other accessory that can chane outfit like this ! A nice , fresh hat will reborn your whole Santorini outfit! Plus it will protect you from the hot sun !
And now you can have a stylish hat even if you can’t afford a jacquemuse or Maison Michel! There are a lot of affordable and super stylish hats out there that you don’t need to break the bank !But if you can afford the luxury one , I totally suggest you to go for it ! Not only because of the brand name but of the quality and the duration ! But anyways you should pack with you a nice straw hat !
Santorini like any other greek island can be super hot especially during the high season so you don’t want any trousers or jeans under this heat , right ? A nice airy dress would be perfect ! You are going to look very feminine and chic and at the same time you will feel comfortable too! Heat in the Greek islands is not something to underestimate ! You will need light clothes so your skin can breathe during the day !Look at me at this photo , I’m wearing this airy white dress and my beautiful straw hat and I really feel perfect ! I couldn’t imagine myself wearing jeans and a tshirt! It would be a disaster ! So when thinking of what to wear in Santorini , your first option should a nice summery dress!!
‘’Light fabrics , colors and nice femine airy patrons is the perfect combination on what to wear in Santorini ‘’
Now you are wondering if there’s any actual difference between an airy dress and a kaftan? Well , I can tell you for sure that there is ! Kaftans are usually lighter than dresses and more transparent ! Also , kaftans most times have long sleeves to protect you from the sun and give you some extra style !So , why you need to wear kaftans in Santorini ?To be honest , because I love the way they look on the photos especially if they have nice big sleeves and because they are extra airy and light to spend your day in the magical island of Santorini ! It’s perfect to wear them to the beach or at your cave house for the breakfast and for a nice morning walk in Oia ! Still wondering what to wear in Santorini, KAFTANS!!!!
BIG STRAW BAGS
In what else can you carry your beach towel , your book , beach essentials and so many other things you need for your day in Santorini ? Only a big straw bag or maybe a basket bag is always the best choice !I love them, you know why ? Because you can carry a ton of things and still have plenty of space for some more and be in style at the same time . Also these bags will upgrade any outfit ! I mean it’s one of my top tricks to transform a nice summer outfit to a stylish outfit with character !So , straw bags or baskets are practical and very stylish ! The perfect addition to any outfit you wear in Santorini !
I couldn’t imagine myself in heels walking in Santorini ! It’s super impractical and to be honest I don’t like it aesthetically either ! You are in a beautiful island , you should feel and look relaxed at the same time ! How’s this possible if you are wearing high heels ? Well , it’s not !And in 2019 all the designers have launched so many amazing flats in wonderful colors and designs !
So , you don’t need to wear heels to look flawless anymore ! During summer I wear flats almost everyday and I love it ! It looks very stylish with my outfits and I am very comfy for my everyday summer walks around the island !So , for your trip to Santorini you will definitely need a pair of fancy flats !

You will need it only for the nights, during the day it’s so hot ! In the evening it gets a little windy so you will feel better with a nice light cardigan around you !
9.CROP TOPS & SKIRTS/PANTS
I am kind of girl that loves to wear dresses and kaftans but this doesn’t mean that you feel the same way ! So , if you don’t want to wear only kaftans and dresses in Santorini there’s another airy and stylish option for you ! Crops tops and skirts or pants/shorts!
