It’s a key fixture on the international party circuit and the weekend for which people sacrifice all carbs: the Ibiza opening weekend is the official start of the summer and it pays to look the part.
A sunny afternoon spent sipping cocktails on the day beds at Blue Marlin can easily turn into dancing ‘til dawn on the sunset terrace at Space, so make sure your 10kg packing allowance is packed with colourful pieces that clash together in brilliantly bohemian style.
Your staples for Ibiza 2012? Bold one-pieces that can slip seamlessly from day to night, wedge heels to hit the dancefloor in, backpacks and bum-bags that leave your hands free for a cocktail, and big sunglasses to hide the shadows the next day.
