Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and is well known to locals and tourists alike for its beautiful scenery of tall mountains, and long, white sandy beaches.  All year round, you can hike, swim, and visit the many trendy shops and restaurants throughout the city and towns.

You will want to pack efficiently for the many activities you are doing and for the weather.  The temperature can be as high as 32 degrees Celsius (89 degrees Fahrenheit) in the summer, and as low as six degrees Celsius (42 degrees Fahrenheit) in the winter. 

Like most of Italy, the people of Sardinia are a close-knit community that values fashion and is known for their casual, yet elegant taste.  To take part in the country-wide pride of appearance, you will want to make sure to choose modern, chic pieces that are still practical.

Sardinia is also not about being flashy, or over the top.  So although you may want to choose current fashion trends, you don’t want to choose outfits that will make you stand out too much.

Light Layers 

Light Layers

Bringing light layers is always a good idea whether you will be in Sardinia in the summer or winter.  Light layers will serve you well for a cold breeze, or rain, or even help protect you from sunburn. 

Light layers are also easier to pack and more compact for your suitcase space's best use.

Casual Chic 

Casual Chic

To blend in with the locals and follow their unofficial dress code, choose casual and chic pieces.  For instance, instead of jean shorts, consider bringing khaki shorts that are more structured while still letting you move in them.  

Dress more chic with these looks.

Collared Shirt

Collared Shirt

A collared shirt is a great staple for anyone.  It can be worn casually with a pair of shorts, or worn more formally with a pair of trousers or a skirt.  

Choose one made from lightweight breathable material, such as linen or cotton so that it dries quickly and doesn’t feel too frumpy over or under other layers.

Save these collared shirts.

A great way to help save luggage space is by choosing pieces you can wear several times in several different ways.  Staple pieces like solid-colored t-shirts and tank tops will pair with a variety of bottom choices.  A dress can be worn several different ways day or night with the right mix of accessories.

Waterproof Jacket 

Waterproof Jacket

Regardless of the time of year you are going, bringing a waterproof jacket will come in handy if it rains, the temperature drops, or if you need another light layer.  A waterproof jacket also works great on a boat if you want protection from the wind or from getting splashed. 

Wear an eco-friendly jacket.

Good Pair of Boots 

Good Pair of Boots

A smart choice is bringing a quality pair of boots with you.  They will serve you well for the colder days and greater support if you are doing a lot of walking.  Consider bringing hiking boots if you plan on going to the mountains and the various scenic trails.

Sunhat or Cap

Sunhat or Cap

The sun shines 300 days a year in Sardinia, making a sun hat or cap an essential item.  Choose one that is lightweight and won’t fly off your head if it gets windy.  Also, choose one that will go with all your clothes.

Check out these stylish hats.

Swimsuit 

Swimsuit

To go to Sardinia and not check out their beautiful beach would be a shame.  A swimsuit is essential if you plan on lying on the beach, going in the water, or going for a boat ride.  Choose a swimsuit that offers the comfort and coverage you seek based on what you will be doing. 

Save these swimsuits.

Day Bag

Day Bag

If you don’t want to haul around a purse or have a lot of items to carry, consider bringing a fashionable day bag.  A day bag can be anything from a sports backpack to a smaller purse backpack that can hold your essentials for the variety of activities you might be doing.

Accessorize with these vegan leather backpacks.

Slip-On Shoes 

Slip-On Shoes

Slip-on shoes are a fantastic, versatile choice for almost any activity.  They can easily be slipped off to walk on the beach or in the water and put back on to venture through town.  They are also more elegant compared to sneakers, while still offering enough support for a day of walking. 

Pair your slip-on shoes with these outfit ideas.

Flowy Trousers 

Flowy Trousers

A great alternative to jeans or shorts is a pair of lightweight trousers.  They are more structured for a higher fashion look while the loose flowy nature is not too constricting for exploring the towns or sitting down for dinner. 

Wear trousers made in Italy.

Sleepwear 

Sleepwear

A commonly overlooked item is bringing appropriate sleepwear with you on your trip.  The best choice is pieces that are loose, comfortable, and breathable.  Consider bringing ones that can easily be washed if you're staying longer or don’t want to bring multiple sets. 

Try on the best sleepwear.

Earthy Tones

Earthy Tones

Many locals choose to wear light earthy tones that are more neutral.  Think browns, greens, blues, and whites.  These tones are also easy to pair together and go with a variety of styles and patterns, making choosing your outfit for the day a lot easier.

A highly recommended item is a lightweight cardigan.  A cardigan is the definition of casual yet elegant and is also a versatile layer that pairs with day wear and night wear without being too bulky or heavy.
