Spain is particularly exquisite in the time of fall, where the soft colors of autumn are mingled with the vibrant colors of Spanish culture.
This translates into the couture chosen for your visit to the country where lacking a few winter essentials wouldn’t be a useless burden to carry in your suitcase.
The weather is mild and the rain spell still has not started yet which means you will get to see the country and bathe in the sun like you wanted to.
Here’s how to choose your wardrobe for your October trip to Spain, where you can blend in with the exotic crowd yet stand out.
Spain’s Weather In October
The perimeter of Spain is quite large and spans over a large area of land with varying landscapes.
The regions experience different temperatures throughout the country’s zone, however the average temperature is measured to about 21° Celsius.
This is quite mild compared to other countries in Europe where the temperature drops significantly in the month of October.
The rain doesn’t start until later on so you don’t have to worry too much about getting wet, however, it won’t hurt to add a raincoat to your travel suitcase.
You can visit the islands on the south for warmer temperatures since the temperatures will drop as you head north.
This means you’ll need more layering, and thicker clothes to roam around the beautiful country, a great place being Zaragoza, the capital of Aragon overlooking the river of Ebro.
What To Wear At Your Daytime Activities In Spain
During the day when the sun is shining bright, don’t be afraid to take out your colorful dresses and shirts to blend in with the Spanish crowd.
You can always carry a cardigan by your side to throw it on whenever the weather gets chilly.
Wear lightweight, comfy sneakers to avoid tiring out or canvas shoes with beautiful artistic patterns to add to your Spanish spirit points.
Sandals and heels are better suited to warmer summer seasons, and may just prove to be a liability in fall.
They fail to keep away the heat, aren’t suited to long walks and you can’t exactly wear them with socks.
Allow yourself to mingle with the crowd in carefree casual clothing, wear tank tops, tees and shorts can still be worn since the weather is quite mild.
Light denim jeans are also a big go-to for fall wardrobe in October. Wear your hat and sunnies when you are sight seeing or enjoying the recurring music festivals held within the country.
You can also carry ankle boots and leather jackets in your suitcase to combat colder weather and pull off an edgier look.
Remember to include neutral colors and basics to your traveling essentials where they will prove quite useful in layering up, without looking awkward.
Spanish style is carefree where the lifestyle is all about having fun and translated into their wardrobe.
While you’re packing for your trip, don’t forget to keep the fun factor in mind and keep your luggage lightweight and minimalist.
What To Wear During Your Night time Activities In Spain
Don’t be afraid to dress up for your night time activities in Spain. These include cocktail dresses for more formal settings, and short mini dresses with an extra bling if you’re heading out to clubs or bars.
You can also go for a more casual attire with jeans and boots, where you can add a leather jacket on top for a more robust look.
Don’t forget to accessorize your outfit with classic pieces of your jewelry that are a staple of Spanish wardrobe. A nice pair of earrings, necklace or your favorite bracelet, night time is the time to go all out on your wardrobe.
You can never be overdressed in Spain.
Add shimmer to your lids and gloss to your lips and the fact you’re a guy should not stop you from trying out things, even if it’s for the first time.
Guys can put on their watches and rings, throw on their favorite shirt with dark wash jeans and add class with slacks or chunky boots.
In the end, it’s up to you to decide how you want to take the lead in the Spanish crowd, where you are free to be a minimalist and maximalist as per your choice, the most important part being having fun.
