I’m Headed to Turkey – 15 Swimsuits, Dresses and Beach Pieces For My European Summer Clothing Era

New York is reluctant to step into Spring weather. It’s very unpredictable at this point what to wear, but while I am patiently waiting to step into my spring & summer closet, I decided to plan what I will shop for my European summer clothing era. Every summer, I try to go to Turkey to visit our families, but on the way, we always try to add a stop in Europe to avoid long hours of flight from New York.

As I went through my closet last week, I realized that my European summer clothing could use a little more sophisticated, so I constantly looked for new additions to my summer closet.

I’ve spent the last week browsing Nordstrom, Netaporter and Shopbop, searching for the best vacation pieces, and this season, surprisingly, I longed for colorful dresses, swimsuits, cover ups and all the new cute straw bags. I probably need one extra dress and a new pair of sandals for my trip to Turkey, but there is too much cute stuff out there, and I couldn’t help but share my favorite summer pieces with you. Below, I cover my favorite European summer clothing shopping picks— from chic swim silhouettes to beach dresses to beautiful summer raffia bags — in case you are planning for warmer weather.

Summer Dresses

If I have more budget I’ll go and shop places like Fram Rio, Doen, Sezane, Reformation. But If I am trying to fit into a budget I regular;y check Mango. Although Mango is also one of the fast fashion brands, At least Mango’s fabric quality is much better than Zara and places like H&M. Also if you be careful to select content of the clothing you are looking be careful to see cotton. Mango also sustainable line, that could be a another good option.

Summer Sandals

I don’t know you but I want to be very chic with my beachside looks, so I always try to find somehow fancy looking but affordable summer sandals. Here are some of my selctions.

YSL tribute sandals are such classic that you can wear years and years. But the price hike is getting disturbung to be honest. Just last year these sandals were $595. And now they are $725. I’m glad I decided to go with Hermes Oran Sandals at the last minute last summer, I can imagine how much Oran sandals right now. But both of these sandals are such classics that can go exteremely well with your european summer clothing closet.
