I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to visit Marbella. It’s a favourite with celebs and a regular feature on TOWIE, Marbella is the hotspot for sun, sea and style. With millions of luxury-loving Brits flocking to the Costa del Sol playground each year, you’ll need to up the fashion stakes if you’re to stand out from the crowd.
If you’re planning to party in Puerto Banus this year, here’s what you should pack, courtesy of designer footwear retailer Daniel Footwear:
Poolside at Ocean Beach Club
No trip to Marbella is complete without a VIP party! Ocean Club is perfect if you want to soak up the sun as you sip champagne and enjoy incredible views of the coast. DJs create a chilled vibe during the day, before cranking up the party atmosphere on the evening. Whether you want to chill out with a poolside massage or slip on your dancing shoes, everyone can get a slice of Marbella at this venue.
In terms of how you should dress, your standard bikini and flip flops simply won’t cut it; it’s all about the glam! When it comes to your bikini or swimsuit, either keep it monochrome in all-black or white, or create a statement. Be bold. Cut-out detailing and embellishment will help add to your class look, while an elegant kaftan is the perfect cover-up.
Your shoes should be equally as glamorous too. Leave your standard flip flops behind and go all-out with a pair of chic wedges. But what if you prefer to wear flats? Choose a glitzy embellished pair to help your look shine. Don’t forget to finish your look with a pair of designer sunnies and statement accessories.
Night out with friends
An evening is when you really up your look, to be ready for a big night at Marbella’s exclusive cocktail bars and nightclubs. Whether you’re at Pangea’s rooftop terrace or dancing the night away at Funky Buddha, it’s important to get your evening look perfect.
Gorgeous dresses are a great choice, as they’re effortlessly chic and perfect for the Marbella heat, as it’s still hot on a night time – especially when you’re dancing. Always wear them with heels and pair it with dramatic eye makeup for a smouldering evening look that will really make you stand out. There’s no such thing as casual night time in Marbs!
Shopping in Puerto Banus
Whether you need a break from the sun or want to take a slice of Marbella beautiful style home with you, visit Marbella’s designer boutiques including Hermes, Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton, every shopaholic should find shade in these exclusive stores. You’ll be spoiled for choice. I’d be straight into Hermes!
You may be on the hunt for a new outfit or that must-have accessory, but it’s important to get your look right before you even hit the shops. Ditch the swimwear in favour of a more appropriate daytime look such as a maxi dress, statement necklace and block wedges are ideal for keeping cool without compromising on style.
Whether you’re heading to a pool party, sipping fruity cocktails with your friends or enjoying a spot of retail therapy, there are some essentials you can’t be without if you’re heading to Marbella. Make sure you have these in your case:
- Designer shades 🕶
- Wedge sandals 👡
- Statement jewellery for each outfit 💍
- Chic kaftan to cover up! 👗
