2016 Ibiza Opening Party Style Guide

2016 Ibiza Opening Party Style Guide

Not sure what to wear out in Ibiza? We can help. Here is reVOLVER's Style Guide to the 2016 Ibiza Opening Parties...

It's Opening Party time again! If you think it came around a bit quicker than usual you're right - Amnesia is opening a full two weeks earlier than they normally do**. Whilst this particular club is doing so out of necessity (they need to squeeze in a two week ban for their late-running closing parties at the end of last season), other clubs are taking the opportunity to extend their seasons too.

And so we have Ants at Ushuaia, Pacha's summer parties (including Insane, Solomun +1 and Pure Pacha) and Circo Loco at DC-10 all opening earlier than usual. Hooray!

Now that the parties have been announced, what to wear?? Help is at hand. Our expert team has picked out three things for Men and Women that will make very stylish statements at the openings.

 

WOMEN

1. Killer heels

By June you'll be going out in flat shoes. But for the openings you will wear killer heels. These David Bowie inspired boots from JF London will make sure all eyes are looking downwards - more precisely, at your feet.

2. A sexy black dress

One of the big themes at last week's New York Met Ball was cut out dresses. However the trend was already here -  we spotted fashionista Alexandra Miro in Ibiza the week before the Met Ball, in this McQ Alexander McQueen cut out stitch dress. It would be perfect for a night out at Pacha.

3. A scarf that doubles as a jacket

It's May, but it's definitely not summer yet. In fact, it's decidedly chilly at night. Whilst a jacket is bound to be an annoyance, this Stella scarf from Lily and Lionel will not only provide a bit of warmth, it has a lovely swish on the dancefloor too.

MEN

1. A strong t-shirt

Whilst black is naturally the colour of choice, it doesn't have to be all black. Some of the clubs can be a maze inside, and it's hard to find your way out... so we think Helmut Lang's Labyrinth t-shirt is very appropriate for the openings. Especially apt for the Ants party!

2. Shorts with secure pockets

Everyone knows men don't carry bags when they go out. But men do have stuff. So - without a bag, either your girlfriend is going to have to squeeze your wallet/keys/phone/sunglasses into her bag (which believe me, she won't be happy about) or you will have to fit everything into your pockets.  DRKSHDW's Memphis Pod shorts solve the problem by including a zip up flap that velcros at the hip. Genius.

3. A hat

We love a hat here at reVOLVER - and we've spotted lots of them around town recently. Danish superstar DJ Kölsch passed by the other day to say hi - he is seldom seen without some sort of cool headwear. And if the DJ's are wearing them then it's a sure sign that they will be the perfect opening party accessory.

See you at the Openings!

** Amnesia has since changed its opening date to be the 28th of May - Ants will still go ahead this weekend as scheduled
