Just 1,000 miles from Miami, Puerto Rico is an idyllic island destination that’s easy to visit. Because Puerto Rico is a US territory, it is relatively accessible without requiring a passport for US citizens residing in the US to gain access to its pristine beaches, crystal blue waters, and lush rainforest landscape. For this reason, celebrities visit the Caribbean island, sneak away for a tumultuous weekend or even buy property there in order to visit as often as possible. And when it comes to what to wear in Puerto Rico, visitors dress for the sunny weather, grab breezy dresses to tour Old San Juan or glittery minis to party at the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel.

With so much to see and do in Puerto Rico, your wardrobe should run the gamut from the formal to the effortless, with pieces designed for all your travel plans. For example, to visit the Catedral Basilica Menor de San Juan Bautista in San Juan, where Jennifer Lopez got married, you might want to choose a flowy maxi skirt to pair with flat shoes and a sunscreen hat by Eugenia Kim. To enjoy the island’s famous nightlife, Bad Bunny’s frequented La Placita in Santurce, opt for a colorful Bruce Glen slip to pair with pink strappy sandals. Want to catch a concert while you’re in town? Visit the popular Fairmont El San Juan Hotel, where will.i.am recently performed at the PRS (Puerto Rock Steady) Fest, and don an embellished sequin retrofete mini. And if you’d rather just relax by the pool and spa at the beautiful St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, pair a Fe Noel swimsuit with the brand’s statement ombré sarong.

From night swimming among phosphorescent creatures to the enchanting, vibrant architecture of Old San Juan, keep scrolling to see what to wear and do in Puerto Rico.
