For those wondering what European's dress like.

Jump to last reply

We just came back from our one month holiday in Europe. travelling through Germany, Switzerland, Italy and France.

We spent the most time in Italy and France. The one accessory I would bring is a scarf. Almost every woman wore one. But remember this is early spring so this will differ for summer. Boots were all the rage worn with tights or skinny jeans. Boots ranging from knee high to ankle.Four inch heels to flats. Dark colours worn with a beige, brown or black trench coat. Designer sunglasses and purses were worn by all ages of women. Men were very nicely dressed with dark jean or dress pants but that was mainly the older generation. Teens were dressed just as they do here in Canada. We saw a few teens baring there tummies in Venice and it looked so inapproiate. So, leave that trend for summer back home. The only people that really stuck out were older tourists possibly American or Canadian wearing colourful capris with old looking shoes. We were even mistaken for locals in Italy as we dressed well everywhere we went. Hope that helps you fashionista's worrying about what to wear.
