Clothing Styles in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Okay - I've seen a lot of posts making fun of us in the US for what we wear to another country (or anywhere for that matter). :> Not so many on the Switzerland site but, mostly on the general Europe site. But, it's made me curious about Switzerland.

So here are my questions . . .

What is the clothing style in Switzerland for men and women? Not young adults styles - how about between the ages of 40-55.

What do you wear in winter? Spring? Summer? Fall?

What kind of shoes do you wear with jeans? Skirts? Shorts? Dresses? Trousers/Dress pants?

What kind of shorts? Jean? Kahki? Spandex/licra? Knit?

What are the most popular type of pants? Jean? Kahki? Trousers/dress pants? Capris?

What are the most popular types of tops?
Blouses/dress shirts? T-shirts? Halters? Spaghetti strap tanks?

What about belts? Hats? Purses? Sport coats/jackets? Winter coats? Sweaters?

What colors are in for this season?

What do you wear to a nice restaurant? Cafe/Bistro? Bar?

If there is any other fashion item(s) I've not mentioned, please feel free to add it to the list.

I'm not asking this so that I can go out and purchase new clothes for our trip. I'm just curious.

However, I do want to buy some new stuff while we are there. So knowing the answers to some of these will help me pack some things that I can match with something I buy there.
