How to Pack for an #AbovePar Trip to Santorini

How to Pack for an #AbovePar Trip to Santorini

The second I saw my first sunset in Santorini, I started to cry–I was convinced that my boyfriend was proposing. The white arches and tie-dye skies would have made the perfect backdrop for a proposal and he had insisted on bringing nothing but carry-on suitcases, claiming that jetsetting from Mykonos to Santorini required flexibility and limited space. So, I convinced myself that his bag had a diamond in it.

He didn’t propose on that trip–but, I’ve since forgiven my now-husband for making me wait for the big question and for making me fit a week’s worth of engagement-worthy looks into a carryon. 

So, whether you’re looking to dress like a Grecian goddess or you just need a capsule wardrobe that fits in a small suitcase, we have you covered. Think: versatile separates, lightweight staples, and two-in-one pieces. We’d also recommend booking an engagement-worthy HAP-approved hotel, like Perivolas, just in case. Here are 20 things to pack for Santorini. 

Spinelli Kilcollin Taurus Rings

From $3,900

This three-in-one ring is the perfect Santorini statement. In silver, gold, and diamonds, it’ll match every look you wear on your trip.

Vacation Super Spritz SPF 50 Face Mist 

From $24

Just like a diamond, your face is yours forever. So, don’t forget to apply and reapply SPF in Santorini. This is our favorite super spritz for any vacation.

From $65

The daunting tasks of packing and unpacking could ruin a Grecian getaway–unless you set up your suitcase for Santorini in July. These compression packing shelves will maximize every inch of space in your suitcase and boutique hotel closet.

Le Ore Calla Cut-Out Playsuit

From $140

Miniscule one-pieces that you can do everything from hike to sightsee in are a lifehack. This is also the type of look that you can wear on repeat in Greece.

JOBY Telepod all-in-one Tripod 

From $64

Multi-functional tech is another must. This could be your selfie-stick in Santorini and your tripod in Athens.

Sold Out NYC Not So Basic Tank

From $85

A classic but high-quality white tank is not only perfect for the airport, but for every stop on your trip. So, this “not so basic tank” is worth packing in every color.

Since this one piece can be a chain, bracelet, anklet, lariat, and charm necklace, it’s a must for Santorini–and for every trip after.

A hat that won’t crack under pressure is another game-changer for Greece. Janessa Leone is a genius.

Linen might wrinkle, but it will never disappoint. Pack these pants–they’ll also look good with everything.
