Appropriate Clothes for Each Season

Dressing For the Weather In Barcelona

Barcelona is the main city in Catalonia, Spain. Barcelona is a refreshing city full of warmth and good-times all-year-round, which means that your wardrobe can go from casual to glam in one day in any season! Though erratic temperatures are uncommon, it's always best to have a wardrobe that's practical for the seasons.

Dressing for the Seasons

Spring
During spring, the answer to dressing in Barcelona is layering. The weather can get rainy and temperatures a bit cool. Choose versatile pieces for layering that you can mix-and-match with a number of looks. Jeans are fine with a casual or dressy top. Wear flats or wedgies during the day and heels if you want to dress up your look up a bit with a stylish dress/skirt or pair of elegant slacks.

Summer
Wear bright and rich hues or pastels in summer. Stylish dresses, cotton slacks in a neutral or pastel shade, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen are fashionable. Men in Barcelona wear colors as well. An egg-yolk yellow colored t-shirt with jeans are fine for male attire. The idea is comfort and style during the summer season.

Fall
Navy or any dark colored jeans with an attractive sweater neatly accessorized will work. Casual during the day and fancy for the evening is an appropriate concept to go by. Decorative accessorizes like a fringe shoulder bag or a decorative knit headband are also chic.

Winter
Winter wear in Barcelona is just as versatile as the rest of the year. Dresses and skirts with opaque stockings or tights with interesting patterns are trendy. Colorful sweaters worn under a warm jacket with jeans and a pair of leather ankle boots work just fine. A nice wool coat in a bright shade and elegant scarf will take you far. Other items that will keep you ready for the winter season is an umbrella and comfortable boots with a warm lining but not too heavy.

The winter months are somewhat mild in comparison to other Northern European cities. Temperatures range around 57°F / 14°C dropping as low as 41°F / 5°C.

When mentioning the weather in Spain, it's important to acknowledge the many important beaches. If you love the sun (don't forget sunscreen) Barcelona is the place to be. The city's coastlines expands approximately three-miles or 4.5 kilometers. There is a broad range of fantastic beaches to choose from. The most well-known beaches include Mar Bella and Barceloneta. The closest is Barceloneta with a choice of restaurants and largely American themed bars. Therefore, stylish beachwear is crucial if you enjoy taking a swim, taking in the rays of the sun, and hanging out in a beach environment. In fact, the weather in Barcelona normally permits swimming until nearly the end of the year! Any style of swimsuit will work including neon colors. The beach season is from mid-March to roughly mid-November. The high-season is from end of May to end of September.

In addition, if you plan on visiting the many famous churches in the city be sure to dress modestly. Though it is not required of all churches, the usual attire requires that you cover your knees and shoulders, this also includes men.

Barcelona Dress Style

When deciding what to wear in Barcelona, think versatility with panache. Dress chic and comfortable. If you like color, feel free to wear the brightest colors that suit your fashion sense. Have your walking shoes handy and lightweight attire if it's during the spring or summer. Keep in mind, Barcelonians dress casual but chic. Cool style with plenty of accessories if you are a female and a stylish pair of slacks for men.

For a basic look t-shirts and shorts work for spring and summer. Take a casual dress and accessorize with pieces of jewelery like stylish earrings, and necklace and top-it-off with perfect makeup. Men can wear colorful shirts if they are into light blues and yellows, or a simple pair of khaki paints with a fashionable shirt will do. A lightweight jacket will keep you warm during the evening hours. Barcelonians love to dress no matter what the weather and autumn and wintertime are no exception. Don't forget about color!

The Best Dress Style for Men in Barcelona

T-shirts take stylish men in Barcelona a long way, especially during the hot and humid seasons. Men are very stylish in Barcelona so be sure to have a nice dress shirt for going out in the evening. Chinos like khakis or a dark color work including jeans. Colorful shirts including prints are fine. Ties along with bow ties are stylish with dress shirts for an evening out on the town. Business men should wear a suit or jacket with a tie even during scorching weather.

TIP
The cobblestone streets in Barcelona can be tricky for walking if you're not wearing the proper shoes. High heels will be uncomfortable and could possibly cause you to fall or twist your ankle. Because the city is a city-for-walking, make sure that you wear comfortable shoes. Flat shoes or wedgies are recommended. If you must wear heels for a night out on the town stay away from the cobblestone streets!
