How should I dress/what to wear in France next month?

Jump to last reply

I know this sounds like a dumb question, but what should I wear when we (wife and 10yr old/6yr old children) go to Paris and the South of France next month? (I'm a guy, BTW).

Right now, some days I think to myself "EFF it! I'm gonna wear whatever the hell I WANNA wear."

And on other days, I'm thinking that I don't want to dress like a typical American Tourist (i.e. baggy T-Shirt with some sort of athletic team name...or some sort of phrase ("Hawaii '98") on it, baggy cargo shorts with 10 pockets, half-laced high-top Nike basketball shoes, backwards baseball cap, and Oakley sport shades/sunglasses?

Maybe I should opt for the "Retiree Look:" Sans-a-belt "walking" shorts that fall five inches above my knees, polyester "Polo" shirt, black socks, Dr. Scholl "Walking Shoes", clip-on shades over my glasses (I typically wear contacts, but could remove them and wear this clip-on shades/glasses combo)...and a Fanny Pack?

Or maybe rock a "Euro" look: Skinny black jeans, black socks, shiny black leather shoes, tight black T-shirt with the sleeves reaching only an inch down my arm, skinny black belt, black Mascara, and a leather jacket?

Help me out!
