If you're a woman and anything like me, you may have a hard time trying to figure out what sort of clothes to bring with you on your vacation. Especially if you don't particularily want to stand out from the crowd or feel like your outfit has "TOURIST!" written all over it.
So I've been searching the Internet for some good ideas, and that's how I've come up with this list of recommended garments that will make you look cool, elegant and even professional, even on a hot day. Here we go:
Palazzo pants are super comfy, wide-legged trousers that are perfect for summer. Buy some that are airy and roomy and made from natural fibres, so that they transport moisture away from your skin. Shorts and pants are often better than a skirt in the heat, to avoid your feet rubbing against each other. If you have short legs, wear sandals or shoes with some heel.
Sleevless jackets and tops

Slick and elegant. But of course: If you prefer to cover up your arms, choose a long-sleeved jacket instead, but in an airy and comfy material of natural fibres.
Airy dresses and flowing skirts and tops

- but not necessarily the all Bohemian look. Combine flowing skirts with neutral or basic tops for a balanced look. A wide top can also be worn with streight pants or Capri pants, but again: If you have short legs, Capri pants may make you look even shorter, so wear some heels with those.
Perfect if you want a little height and still feel comfortable. Choose some that have rubber soles for optimal comfort and safety.
Culottes are short, wide trouser-skirts, and perfect if you want a cool and classy look on a hot day. Again: Choose shoes or sandals with some height to create balanced proportions.

Do your hair in a smooth style
