What To Wear in Ibiza Clubs? Ultimate Outfit Guide For Men & Women

Thinking about your next trip to Ibiza, or do you already have the flights booked? If this is your first time in Ibiza, or you haven’t visited the island in a while, I bet you’re wondering…

 

What to wear in Ibiza, or specifically, what to wear in Ibiza clubs.

 

There are endless options when it comes to picking Ibiza outfits. Now, remember, Ibiza is a free-spirited island, and one of the most important considerations when choosing your outfits or packing your suitcase is to balance comfort and style. You want to feel fantastic, whatever you decide to wear in Ibiza.

 

Also, remember that during the season from May to October, Ibiza is hot and humid, with temperatures around 30°C, so wearing light clothes is a must.

 

I have been coming to Ibiza for 10 years, so I’ve seen the good and the bad of nightclub outfits. I’m here to give you tips on what to pack and what to leave safely in the closet at home and ensure your comfort and well-being so you can choose the best Ibiza outfits. I’ll also inform you about what not to wear, as some venues have specific restrictions and dress policies.

What To Wear For Clubbing in Ibiza?

OK, let’s dive right into it; you already know that you need to be comfortable because the clubs in Ibiza are open until 6 AM and for special parties, such as opening and closing parties, till 8 AM or even midday. 

Depending on when you arrive and leave, you’ll be on the dancefloor for about 6 hours or more, or maybe you’re like me, someone who’s first to get in and last to go home 😊.

I always have one rule when picking an outfit – being comfortable is more important than looking good unless I go to dinner first or perhaps to the club’s VIP area, where slightly different rules apply (I’ll also cover these in the following sections).

Ibiza Clubs Dress Codes for Men & Women

Generally speaking, most of the nightclubs in Ibiza maintain a relaxed dress code, which is casual. This means you can wear anything from everyday clothes such as shorts, shirts, t-shirts, dresses, and skirts to trainers and sneakers. As I mentioned, the emphasis here is on feeling at ease and enjoying the vibrant nightlife without constraints. The choices for clubbing outfits in Ibiza are countless! 

However, it’s essential to remember that even within this casual framework, there are a few non-negotiable rules that all venues in Ibiza adhere to. While you have the freedom to express your style, certain items are universally considered no-gos. 

You will be denied entry if you show up in a football shirt, swimwear (and yes, believe us, it does happen😊), or flip-flops. I have seen people being rejected for wearing football shirts at any time. However, it’s not the end of the world as they bought normal shirts in the nearby stores or went to the hotel to change and enter the venues. Some clubs also don’t allow tank tops or vests. These restrictions are in place to maintain a certain level of decorum and style in the clubs.

Now, if you’re fortunate enough to have a VIP table reservation at one of Ibiza’s exclusive venues, the dress code expectations may be slightly elevated. While it’s still a far cry from black-tie, some VIP sections may request a smart-casual appearance. This typically means dressing slightly smarter, but you can still exude your unique style while enjoying the luxurious perks of the VIP experience.

Men’s Outfits For Clubbing in Ibiza

Here are some of my recommendations when picking an outfit for a nightclub. Let’s start with the bottom and work our way up to the top: 

SHOES

I believe there are two types of clubbers: the ravers and the chatterboxes. If you’re a raver like me who spends 99% of the time on the dancefloor, I highly recommend wearing trainers or sneakers. On the other hand, if you’re the type that likes to mingle a bit more, spending time outside in the smoking area and occasionally dipping in and out of the dancefloor, you may wear fancier shoes like loafers. Additionally, I’d advise against wearing white shoes, as by the end of the night, they may end up grey or black 😊.

SHOES TO WEAR

  • Trainers
  • Sneakers
  • Loafers
  • Chukka

SHOES TO AVOID

  • Flip flops
  • Sandals
Sports Shoes

BOTTOMWEAR

Personally, when choosing an outfit, I ALWAYS wear shorts. Ibiza is where the temperature rarely drops at night, so if you wear shorts during the day, it’s a great idea to continue wearing them at night. The exception is Club Chinois, which has a dress code requiring males to wear long trousers.

  • Bermuda Shorts
  • Chino Shorts
  • Cargo Shorts
  • Pleated Shorts
  • Jeans
  • Chinos
  • Linen Trousers
  • Drawstring Trousers
  • Cargo Pants

TOPWEAR

Here, you have the freedom to pick anything, from t-shirts and shirts to long-sleeve shirts and Hawaiian shirts. One thing to try to avoid is tank tops/vests, as some clubs don’t allow them. Also, they are not a popular option in the nightclubs of Ibiza.

TOPWEAR TO WEAR

  • Shirts
  • Polo Shirts
  • T-Shirt
  • Cuban Shirts
  • Hawaiian Shirts
  • Overshirts
  • Denim Shirts

TOPWEAR TO AVOID

  • Tank-tops / vests – sleeveless shirts

Jewellery & Accessories

If you like to be blinged out with chains, watches, or bracelets, then by all means, go for it. Just remember that, like everywhere else, theft does happen in Ibiza. Leaving any expensive valuables at home or the hotel is a good idea.

  • Sunglasses
  • Watches
  • Chains
  • Bracelets
  • Caps
  • Bum Bags

Women’s Outfits For Clubbing in Ibiza

For all the ladies, dressing the part isn’t just about style – it’s about capturing the essence of Ibiza’s carefree spirit. As I keep saying, try to combine feeling and looking good when picking out your outfit, and we all know these two can easily be balanced.  In this section, I’ll take you through the fashion choices to help you feel confident, comfortable, and ready to dance the night away in Ibiza’s legendary nightclubs.

SHOES

Let’s start with the one thing you should AVOID – heels. Remember that clubs are open till 6 AM (and even longer for special events). Unless you intend to spend most of your time sitting at a table, then avoid heels. Here, flats or trainers are your best friends.

SHOES TO WEAR

  • Trainers
  • Sneakers
  • Ballet / Flat

SHOES TO AVOID (OR THINK TWICE ABOUT)

  • Heels
  • Boots
  • Mules
  • Sandals

BOTTOMWEAR

Simply put, skirts and shorts. I suggest this because Ibiza nights are warm and humid, especially in July and August. So, wearing something lightweight is a must, considering that it might already be 6 AM when you leave the club, with another warm day ahead.

BOTTOMWEAR TO WEAR 

  • Boyfriend Shorts
  • Boy Shorts
  • Cut Off Shorts
  • Jamaican Shorts
  • A-Line Skirt
  • Mini Skirt
  • Draped Skirt
  • Asymmetrical Hem skirt
  • Jeans

TOPWEAR

Your options are truly abundant in this category.! With a diverse selection that caters to various tastes and styles: trendy crop or boxy tops that add a fashionable touch to your outfit, elegant wrap tops that exude sophistication, sheer tops that provide a touch of allure, and off-the-shoulder garments that embrace the island’s carefree vibe. The best part is there’s an even wider array of options to discover, ensuring you’ll find the perfect top that complements your unique style and makes you feel at your best as you step onto the dance floor.

TOPWEAR TO WEAR 

  • Blouses
  • T-Shirts
  • Shirts
  • Polo Shirts
  • Tunics
  • Camisoles

DRESSES

Dresses are also a popular option when it comes to picking an outfit for a nightclub. Now, I am not talking about the fancy dresses you might wear to a cocktail party or a wedding; no, I am talking about simple, light dresses you can be comfortable in while dancing all night long!

DRESSED TO WEAR

  • A Slip Dress 
  • Sheath Dress
  • Bodycon Dress
  • Shift Dress
  • One-Shoulder Maxidress
light skirt

Jewellery & Accessories

Ladies, here you can go crazy: necklaces, rings, bracelets, you name it. On the safety side, remember that theft does occur in Ibiza. It’s wise to leave any precious items at home or in your hotel room.

JEWELLERY & ACCESSORIES TO WEAR

  • Hats
  • Sunglasses
  • Earrings
  • Necklaces
  • Rings
  • Bracelets
  • Boho accessories

CLOTHES TO AVOID WHEN GOING CLUBBING IN IBIZA

These are the types of clothes we recommend avoiding when going clubbing in Ibiza. You may choose to wear them; however, we would think twice before putting them on. 

  • Tank-tops / vests – sleeveless shirts
  • Sandals
  • Flip Flops
  • Heels

Best Partywear for Nightlife in Ibiza (My Top 3 Picks)

So now you know what to wear and what not to wear, here are my top 3 things I need to leave the house with when clubbing in Ibiza. 


  1. SUNGLASSES – Yes! I absolutely love wearing sunglasses in clubs. All clubs in Ibiza tend to have a lot of lasers and visuals, and some people wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from the bright lights. Wearing glasses while immersing myself in the music creates a special connection and gives me a sense of anonymity. You close your eyes slightly while the music takes you to another dimension. What an amazing feeling!
Sunglasses

  1. BUMBAG – Another must-have accessory while going clubbing. You can put all your valuables in an easy-to-reach place – your phone, wallet, keys, gum, vapes, ciggies and lighter (for anyone that smokes), and any other thing you may carry with you. 


  1. SHORTS – It doesn’t matter if you are male or female. Shorts (or skirts for women) are among the most important. Just imagine – you’re dancing all night in temperatures reaching 30°C, even though the clubs nowadays have excellent air conditioning. Nevertheless, shorts will free up your legs to break those moves all night.

FAQs

What shoes should I wear in Ibiza clubs?

If you intend to dance all night, trainers and sneakers are your best friends when choosing which shoes to wear. Flats and loafers are also viable options, but your feet may get tired quicker. And remember ladies, avoid heels at all costs unless you plan to spend most of the night sitting at a table.

Do I need to dress differently for VIP areas?

As mentioned above, venues ask people to dress smart casual, and some areas don’t allow shorts, so make sure to be clear on the dress policy before booking a table.

What to wear to an Ibiza pool party?

I know what you’re thinking – I'll just turn up in my speedos and jump in the pool straight away. Well, sorry to disappoint you – when you enter the venue, you must be fully clothed, so shorts and a shirt are a must, even if you intend to take the shirt off as soon as you get inside the venue.

Is it necessary to take a jacket to Ibiza?

If you plan on visiting Ibiza in April, May, September, October, or out of season, take something warm with you, as evenings can get chilly sometimes.

What kind of jewelry should women wear in Ibiza?

Anything from boho accessories to necklaces, bracelets, and watches. However, please be on the safe side, as thefts do occur in Ibiza. I advise leaving precious valuables in the hotel, or better yet, in the safe.

Can men wear tank tops in Ibiza?

Some clubs do not allow sleeveless shirts in their venues. If you want to wear a tank top, I strongly suggest checking the club's dress policy first to avoid disappointment.

Can you wear sneakers or trainers to Ibiza clubs?

Of course! Sneakers and trainers are a popular choice for most people attending clubs in Ibiza because of their comfort, allowing clubbers to dance all night without tiring. If you have a VIP table reserved, wear slightly smarter shoes. Before attending, it's best to check the club's VIP dress code policy.

What should I do if I need clarification on the dress code for a particular club?

If you need clarification on the dress code of the club you are attending, check out the club's dress policy in our clubs' FAQ section.

What should I wear If I’m going to an Ibiza-themed party

It all depends on the theme of the party. For example, if you go to The Zoo Project, body and animal face paint dominate the party, while at Glitterbox, shiny clothes and glitter are the way forward.

Where is the nightlife in Ibiza?

The two most famous party destinations in Ibiza are Playa d'en Bossa and San Antonio. Playa d'en Bossa is a lot busier and more touristy, and here you can find clubs like Hi Ibiza, Ushuaia, Pacha, SWAG, and Octan. On the other hand, in San Antonio, you'll discover Ibiza Rocks, O Beach, Eden, and Es Paradis. Both areas are charming but offer distinct vibes, so it's essential to carefully consider which one aligns best with your preferences when choosing where to stay.

When should I visit Ibiza?

Ibiza is a seasonal destination, with the season running from May to October. Hi Ibiza and Ushuaia are the first clubs to open at the end of April, followed by Amnesia, Pacha, and Eden. July and August are the busiest and most expensive months. If you want to make the most of your Ibiza trip, visit between June and September when most clubs, bars, and places are open. If sunbathing and clubbing aren't your thing, you can also plan your visit outside these months. Just keep in mind that many places may be closed outside of the peak season. Check out our full blog post on Best Time To Go To Ibiza.

What's the weather like in Ibiza?

Ibiza boasts a Mediterranean climate, ensuring splendid sunny weather for much of the year. July and August are the hottest and most humid months, with temperatures soaring to around 35°C. May, June, August, and September are also scorching but with lower humidity, around 25°C -30 °C and higher. This leads to slightly lower temperatures of around 20°C in April and October. These months are still pleasant but can feel chilly in the evenings. On the other hand, January, February, March, November, and December are the coldest months. Don’t get me wrong, it can be warm if the sun is shining, but it can get a bit cold as soon as the sun sets.

Is Ibiza expensive for clubbing?

Yes, there is no sugarcoating this, and Ibiza can be expensive for clubbing. The most amount you will spend will be on club tickets and drinks. The club tickets range on average from €40 - €60, although some can be as expensive as €100 and as cheap as €20. Mixed drinks are around €20 and beer €12. However, on a positive note, clubbing in Ibiza does not have to be expensive; check out our guide on Ibiza On a Budget!

Conclusion

Remember that Ibiza is not a fashion show; it’s a place where people come to immerse themselves in music and the freedom that accompanies it. I’ll say it again: opt for light and comfortable clothing unless you have a VIP table booked. You’ll thank me later 😊

 

The most important thing is to enjoy yourself and have a good time. Don’t spend hours stressing over what to wear or worrying that you might not get in because you don’t look dressed up enough. Clubs in Ibiza have a straightforward door policy – everyone gets in, that’s of course not to  say to turn up in your pyjamas, but as long as you are dressed casual, you won’t have an issues getting in, except perhaps if you’re too intoxicated or wearing football colours. Just stick to our advice above, and you’ll have a blast. Great times are waiting for you.

 

Now that you have all the information you need about what to wear to a club in Ibiza, another question that might be going on in your mind is –
