Perhaps a shorter dress to wear with heels, or even something like a maxi dress. They can be really stylish and cling to your body in the summer, and look amazing during the summer evening light. Other things to consider would be darker colors for the evening, as you may have opted for brighter choices during the day.

Shoes, bags and accessories

Sun hats and sun shades

Finally, during the day it’s important to protect your head and eyes, so you must consider packing a great pair of sunglasses and a hat that will match in with your clothes. No one like to get a burnt scalp during their long-awaited holiday. A sun hat can look stylish, and we all no sun shades can really make a summer outfit shine.
