What to Wear to Lake Como

Lake Como is an absolute beauty. Whether you are staying in the super-luxurious hotels or a budget hotel, you will fall head over heels for this place – I know I did.

It is stunning, laid-back, and a great place for a weekend break.

We included Lake Como as a part of a road trip and exploring the place, and the routes, by car is highly recommended.

Perhaps couple it with a trip to Milan or even Pisa (or both) or alternatively dedicate a break just to absorb Lake Como.

It is often thought to be a place for couples, it is quite a romantic place after all, but keep in mind that it is not uniquely catered to that audience. There is plenty for a group of friends, families or even solo travelers.

Whilst you are in Lake Como, here are 5 outfit ideas that will keep you looking stylish but also embraces the holiday vibes.


Maxi Dress

Beccie White floral extreme split strappy back maxi dress, Ippolita 18K rock candy pear shaped wired earrings, Rag & Bone calla braided belt, Top Moda lack lace-up cutout wedge sandals

Maxi dresses are perfect holiday attire, but are even better for a Lake Como weekend.

They are the perfect balance between airy, fashionable, comfortable and easy to pack. Try on this Beccie White floral number with a pair of wedges, which would make for a great day-time outfit if you you aren’t going to be swimming.

The great thing about the maxi dress is that this outfit is equally acceptable for the evening as well.

If you’re into watersports, or even just want to swim in the lake for a bit, you may want to make sure you bring a pair of swimsuits with you.

Here are are a few bikini and one-piece ideas that will have you dreaming of summer and lounging in the sun.

Speaking of lounging in the sun, try out this pair of JIMMY CHOO JADE/S shades to keep you looking classy but also keep you protected. Don’t you love the gold arm detail?

Capri Pants

Dolce & Gabbana hydrangea-print cropped trousers, Miss Selfridge grey slinky bardot crop top, Sterling silver Rhodium plated round green quartz earrings, Kenneth Jay Lane amazonite triple-strand necklace

This look is perfect both for a walk around the town or an evening outfit.

A pair of statement capri pants will bring in the holiday vibes, but are also comfortable and stylish.

If you’re not a fan of crop tops, you can easily swap it out for a longer shirt, tank top or even a long cardigan if you are around when it is still a bit windy and chilly.

Pair this look with some Dior DIORSOELECTRIC shades. They are unbelievably stylish and can work with so many other outfits too.
