The Spanish have a very modern outlook on the subject of clothing. They are a smart bunch and would not be seen walking around the town in swimwear, so leave that for the beach! Small villages away from the resorts are more traditional so be aware when entering a holy place like a church as bikini tops and the like are frowned upon.
Older Spaniards dress very conservatively but maintain a good sense of style. Denim is very evident in the younger generation with a more ‘casual’ theme, where smart shorts and sundresses are common, and because most of the year we enjoy long hours of sunshine… bright orange, yellow, coral, turquoise, green etc look great with a good tan!
