Summer in Buenos Aires runs from December to February. Be warned,  it can get hot humid and sweaty! Make sure to stay hydrated and pack a good moisturizer to ensure your skin remains silky soft. Don’t be surprised if you get caught in a sudden thunder storm as this happens frequently in the afternoon.

Palermo is the place to be as the night falls, with so many hip bars and clubs you’re sure to find to somewhere to enjoy some alfresco dining and a tasty cocktail or two. Make sure to pack a party outfit, think fitted jeans and an embellished cami or a printed summer dress. Choose a comfortable yet fun ensemble that you can enjoy dancing the night away in.

Summer in the city is a great time to showcase your sexy sun appropriate sandals. Add a pair of ballet flats or cute and comfortable walking shoes for when you’re walking and exploring and you’re good to go. Try to avoid packing heels: cobbles + heels = disaster. If you don’t feel comfortable without a bit of height, opt for a low wedge shoe instead. Check out our top wedges for summer!
