Spring in Malta is arguably the best season of them all. You can leave the house without cursing the humidity that makes your bones ache with cold, but you can also get to your car without an unattractive patch of sweat seeping through your t-shirt – perfect middle ground.
The temperature does change quite a lot from day to night though. So here’s a few tips to keep in mind when you’re dressing for spring in Malta.
1. Denim is your friend
Denim is known to be a cool (we’re talking temperature here) fabric, so it’s perfect as a cover-up that won’t make you feel too balmy.
2. Anything sheer or lacy is going to work
Giving the crowd a sneak peak at that non-so-distant future summer bod, whilst keeping yourself as warm as you need to be.
3. A killer one-piece is essential
There will be days hot enough to get into the sea, but when you do a one-piece will say ‘spring’ so much more than a bikini.
4. Switch to lighter fabrics
Silk, linen, chiffon, cupro – they’re all going to work perfectly in spring.
5. But remember – layers are everything
Be ready for that slight temperature drop at night by giving yourself a range of different stages of coverage.
6. Your shades will have to be on point
Because most, if not all, of the days will be sunny AF.
7. Ditch dark colours
And instead go for bold and/or pastel.
8. Colourful accessories are a must
There’s no actual physical benefit with this except for looking amazing.
9. Jumpsuits and overalls are a good idea
Because if there’s an ideal season for exploring the islands, it’s spring.
10. Canvas shoes are a must
Forgo the eternal debate in your mind about whether you should wear sandals or not. Just pick an breathable shoe fabric and you’re good to go.
11. Be ready with a slouchy sweater
Because a breeze has been known to pick up.
12. And/or a light-weight jacket
13. The most important thing to wear?
Sunblock. If you’re out for a day you will get burned. Protect yourself and make sure you only get a sun-kissed look.
