What To Pack for a Trip to the Amalfi Coast – The Complete Packing Guide

Now that Italy is re-opening borders for the 2021 summer season, it’s time to SHOP!!! I don’t know about you guys, but all of those canceled trips, and all that money we saved on not traveling while in lockdown has me wanting to blow off some serious retail steam. There’s no travel destination quite like the Amalfi Coast, it is the definition of classic Mediterranean elegance and la dolce vita, so you’re going to want to look the part.

From the stunning cliffs of Positano, to the glamorous island of Capri, the Italians are some of the most fashionable people in the world, and the style here is all about sophisticated elegance without looking like you’re trying too hard. Think feminine silhouettes, classic white linens, a pair (or three) of chic cat-eye sun glasses and obviously a gorgeous sun hat to shield you from those hot Italian rays! Here is all the Amalfi Coast outfit inspiration you need that will serve you well, from daytime lounging to nighttime events!

  • Sandals
