Barcelona is known for its beautiful beaches and long hot summers. Many will be flocking to the city this summer to enjoy the weather, paella and sangria. A fantastic trifecta that is not to be missed.
The first rule of summer in Barcelona is no shorts. It is very rare to see women in Barcelona wearing shorts. The ones that do wear them are usually tourists, who often pair them with sneakers.
So, if not shorts, what should you wear in the summer in Barcelona?
Dresses are a must! Women in Europe tend to dress up, so a lightweight dress is a wardrobe essential for summer in Barcelona. Though it may sound contradictory, black dresses are often used during summer. Check out for some great finds!
Another essential item is a pair of linen or similar material pants, which can be used with a casual tank top or dressed up with a cute button down for the night.
Temperatures can drop somewhat drastically at night, even during the summer, so make sure to carry a lightweight jacket or sweater.
This year’s trends are showing a lot of neutrals, tans, beiges, and olive greens. Explore Spanish fashion in stores like MANGO.
