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

Beach Day Attire
If you’re ever trying to decide between casual and glam, go glam! I love something neutral that can be dressed down or up like these dresses and rompers!
Nothing beats a classic white Linen pant, am I right? Or a tie dress to throw on over anything!
You’re obviously going to need an incredible hat for those long hot summer beach days. Hats have the amazing ability to completely change and outfit while also protecting that precious skin of yours!
I am obsessed with this one.
Throw it all together with a tote!
Can’t forget those sunnies!!
