If you're planning for your first trip to the French Riviera and are looking for tips on what to wear, read on for a few, quick styling do's and don'ts before you start packing (or shopping) for your vacation.
The French Riviera or Côte d'Azur is the coastal, southeastern part of France which sits along the Mediterranean Sea. The climate is warm. The weather and landscape set the scene for an idyllically romantic, beach resort vibe. As you pack, think 'summer' and you'll have the right idea.
The look and style is:
- Simple, sophisticated summer
- Beachside, leisurely elegant
- Comfortably classy (it's always fashionable to be classy!)
Items to pack for a trip to the South of France:
- Flowy dresses and silhouettes are classics and look beautiful in the coastal breeze
- Lightweight, natural fabrics, such as cotton, linen, silk
- Lots of white and light colors
- Sandals for walking on uneven ground
- Wide brimmed hat or fedora
- Chic and simple tote or straw, basket woven bag
- Swimsuits for the beach
Items to leave at home:
- Dark colored clothing
- Tight fitting outfits
- Mile high stilettos
- Synthetic fabrics
When it comes to ultimate breathability in fabrics, cotton gauze and linen are our top picks.
To help narrow down the clothing options, our style team has curated a collection of lightweight, breathable pants and shorts, flowy dresses and skirts, and airy tops and jumpsuits. All styles in this collection consist of white and light-colored apparel items made from natural fibers (cotton or linen).
