There are Benidorm T-shirts that will make sure you look the part which you can customise to look exactly how you want for that personal touch.
Other than that the usual t-shirts and vest tops will be worn, along with some sports shorts through the day and some smarter shorts on a night.
You can dress up in chinos and a shirt if you're going somewhere fancy, but usually it will be a case of dressing down.
