Let us guide be your guide for what to wear in St. Tropez 2019 – Look and feel the part this summer.
The Cote D’Azur has long been a jet-set destination, and this is perhaps why a classic style has always been in favour here. Yet while it may look majestic, St. Tropez fashion is a lot more attainable than you may think. The key to achieving that effortless French Riviera style is to plan your outfits so they do all the work for you.
Here are five looks to bring that coveted je ne sais quoi to your holiday wardrobe, taking you from day to night, from beach to bar, from Les Parcs de Saint Tropez to Les Caves du Roy.
Here’s what to wear in St. Tropez in summer 2019
Sunbathe in a stylish one-piece. This is a sophisticated choice in a place where everyone shows up in their best beachwear ready to lounge by the sea, sip Champagne, admire the scenery and spot the celebrities. With the right accessories, a swimsuit can also take you from the sandy shore to the beach club.
It goes without saying that sunglasses are the essential accompaniment of choice (cat-eye design for added vintage points), along with espadrilles and a kaftan or crocheted maxi dress when heading to the bar for a café or crème glacée.
Opt for a lightweight cotton or linen dress in white or neutral shades for a feminine, timeless silhouette. If it’s a little cooler, go for a black or white t-shirt tucked into your high-waisted Levi’s. Add delicate gold jewellery and your trusted shades to create a look that’s not only comfortable and chic, but also makes trying on any items that take your fancy even easier.
The St. Tropez fashion is for ballet flats or gladiator sandals over heels, creating a relaxed, Riviera style.
Classic polka dots, florals and nautical patterns are the way to make a contemporary statement in the Cote D’Azur. Whether worn as a blouse or a scarf, these prints are timeless so will still look good for years to come. Team with a natural raffia basket bag and you’ll look like a local as you take in the late afternoon sun on your way for an aperitif.
As the sun begins to set, layer up with a cardigan tied around your shoulders.
For dinner, the question of what to wear in St. Tropez in 2019 is not much different to any other year. Indulge in plats de fruits de mer and a nice bottle of Dom Perignon while donning another fashion favourite: the little black dress. This wardrobe staple is about as French as a buttery croissant and can take you anywhere. When you’ve found ‘the one’, you’ll feel extra comfortable and cool on those warm Riviera nights.
Pair with your favourite jacket or blazer (over your shoulders if it’s too warm to wear), embellished flat sandals, a relaxed updo and a soft red lip for très chic dinner time style.
Dance into the early hours in one of the many hybrid restaurant-turned-nightclubs; it’s the most popular way to party in St. Tropez. That’s why your little black dress is an ideal St. Tropez fashion piece to take you through the night elegantly and effortlessly.
The next day, head to the private beach clubs of Pampelonne in your swimsuit, kaftan and a woven sun hat to take your capsule holiday wardrobe full circle.
