With millions of luxury-loving Brits flocking to the Costa del Sol playground each year and a regular feature on The Only Way Is Essex, Marbella is quite literally a hotspot for sun, sea and style. If you’re planning to party in Puerto Banus this year, here’s what you should pack to stand out from the crowd.
Pool party in Marbella
No trip to Marbella is complete without a VIP pool party – with incredible views of the coast. DJs create a cool vibe during the day and set the party atmosphere in the evening. Whether you want to sip champagne and chill out with a poolside massage or hop in your dancing shoes, whilst you’re enjoying your slice of Marbella, your standard swimsuit and flip flops simply won’t cut it. It’s all about the glamour!
Keep your bikini monochrome in all-black or white, or create a statement with a bold print swimsuit. Cut-out detailing and mixed fabrics will help add to your luxe look, while an elegant kaftan is the perfect cover-up. Your shoes should be equally as glam too. Leave your flip flops behind and go all-out with a pair of designer cocktail heels like the ones from Daniel Footwear. Don’t forget to finish your look with a pair of designer sunglasses and statement clutch.
Shopping in Puerto Banus
If you want to take some of those chilled sunny vibes home with you, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Marbella’s designer boutiques. Featuring top fashion names like Hermes, Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton, every shopaholic should find shade in these exclusive stores.
You may be on the hunt for a new outfit or that must-have accessory, but it’s important to get your outfit right before you even hit the shops. Leave your beach wear behind in favour of a more appropriate daytime look. A flowing maxi dress, statement necklace and block wedges are ideal for keeping cool without compromising on glamour.
Girls night out
When day turns to night, you’ll need to up your style for a big night at Marbella’s exclusive cocktail bars and nightclubs. Whether you’re partying under the stars at Pangea’s rooftop terrace or dancing the night away at Funky Buddha with your girl gang, it’s important to get your evening outfit right.
Cocktail dresses are a great choice, as they’re effortlessly chic and perfect for the Marbella heat. Wear with your favourite party heels and dramatic eye makeup. Remember, there’s no such thing as going casual in laidback shorts and flats for a night out in Marbella!
