Taormina, on Sicily’s east coast, is a stunning hilltop town that has everything Italian vacation dreams are made of: cobblestone streets, romantic restaurants, glamorous shops, historic ruins, beaches lined with colorful umbrellas, and sidewalk cafes with views of it all.

So it makes sense that HBO’s White Lotus, the popular series about the ultra-rich on vacation, chose the Four Seasons San Domenico Palace, one of Taormina’s crown jewels, as the setting for season two.

Now, fans of the show are eyeing trips to Sicily — in fact, Americans’ Google searches for the Italian island have doubled. But if you’re one of the many travelers planning a trip to Sicily this year, there’s likely one thing on your mind: What to pack for White Lotus vibes. We all know, drama aside, the fashion was one of the main reasons to watch season two.

So whether you’re an over-the-top-fabulous Tanya, a breezy and glamorous Daphne, a sophisticated Harper, or a quirky-casual Portia, here’s what to pack for a White Lotus-like trip to Sicily. Feel free to add in a colorful power suit a la Valentina and a vibrant, unisex button-down like James, too, because from this cast, the style inspiration is endless.
