Portugal is a tiny country but there’s plenty of diversity from Porto in the north to the Algarve in the south. One thing you can (usually) count on though is lots of good sunshine, unlike other Western European destinations. To sum up my advice into one quick tip, I’d say: pack comfortable shoes for walking and a warm layer for the evening no matter where you’re staying.
I tend to get cold in flight and prefer to be as comfy as possible. My go to flying outfit (for long flights especially) consists of leggings, an oversized cotton tshirt, a sweater tossed in my bag, warm socks and casual sneakers (slip-ons preferred for getting through airport security quickly).
