Holiday Shirts For Your Ibiza Summer Holiday
Posted on July 04 2022
There’s no holiday quite like a summer holiday and there’s no summer holiday quite like an Ibiza summer holiday! While the island is certainly most well known around the world for its exhilarating party and nightclub scene, there’s so much more to it than just sun, sea and sambuca shots. Away from the likes of Amnesia and Pacha, Ibiza is home to some of Europe’s finest off-the-beaten-track hiking trails, picture-perfect beaches, quaint old market towns and a dining scene to rival some of the best the culinary world has to offer.
So exactly how do you go about prepping a wardrobe for such an assorted fruit bowl of summer experiences? You double down on holiday shirts, of course! In our latest edit, we’re bringing you our stylist’s top holiday shirt recommendations for the Ibiza party scene and beyond!
Amiri Black Floral Open Knit Polo Shirt
Openwork stitching is to summer what thermal insulation is to winter: a season-specific, essential feature that allows the wearer to experience the best (or shield themselves from the worst) of the given climate. The porous design greatly enhances the fabric’s breathability and gives the garment an obvious advantage in the sweltering heat. Amiri’s Floral Open Knit Polo Shirt is perfect for detoxifying promenade walks and al fresco evening dinners when the cool ocean breeze is all you yearn for after another afternoon of intense Ibiza sunshine.
Valentino Street Flowers Couture Peonies Print Bowling Shirt
Bright, bold and beautiful is very much the underlying mantra for our holiday shirt hotlist, particularly when Ibiza is the destination of choice. Of course, you can’t truly claim to have experienced the best of the island without revelling in its world-famous party scene, and an appropriately themed wardrobe is essential in this arena. Dressed in a jubilant yellow and adorned with striking floral graphics, Valentino’s Street Flowers Couture Peonies Print Bowling Shirt is as lively as the liveliest of Ibiza’s superclubs.
Casablanca Casa Cafe Print Silk Shirt
Boozy catamaran tours are way up on our Ibiza bucket lists this year and Casablanca’s Casa Cafe Print Silk Shirt is the holiday shirt we’re taking along for the ride. The soft blue palette gives it a quasi-nautical feel while the loose, silken fabric is perfect for when you want to feel the cool ocean breeze against your skin. Another gem in a Casablanca collection that seems tailor-made for your self-indulgent summer lifestyle…
Givenchy White Josh Smith Short Sleeve Shirt
If each holiday shirt on our list has a particular environment to shine in, then Givenchy’s Josh Smith Short Sleeve Shirt is surely the go-to garment for one of Ibiza’s unmissable beach parties. Now that’s just our humble collective opinion, but for our money, the relaxed, almost linen-like fabric lends itself perfectly to an environment that can get particularly stuffy and humid at the best of times. But if that’s not quite what you had in mind, the garment’s generally unassuming profile means that it certainly wouldn’t look out of price at a slightly more sophisticated function. Think dinner dates along the ocean edge, for instance.
Saint Laurent Green & Red Paisley Print Short Sleeve Shirt
Nothing says ‘occasion-ready’ quite like a bit of paisley, especially when the designer isn’t afraid to get flamboyant with the colours. That’s the story that Saint Laurent is sticking to with this incredible Paisley Print Short Sleeve Shirt from our latest summer showcase. One of the reasons we’ve highlighted it as a potential winner for your upcoming Ibiza weekender is because of its versatility. While the psychedelic graphics and colours almost mimic the pulsating strobe lights of Ibiza’s infamous superclubs, there’s an undeniable chicness and uniformity about Saint Laurent’s featured shirt that means that it can just as easily be dressed up in a playful smart-casual outfit.
