Paris in mid June? Do they wear black?

Jump to last reply

Help. I have been to Paris several times. Just got back from a fairly cold trip last month or so (mid-March) and I was surprised that the women really were wearing all black. Yes, there were a few touches of gray, white, brown, etc, but in March, I felt out of place when I wasn't wearing mostly black. No, not my imagination.

I'm 58. I don't wear jeans. My two daughters are coming along (mid twenties) and they can wear jeans or anything as long as they look reasonable. Am I going to look like I'm in mourning if I wear all black (or almost all black) in June?

I realize that black is practical. I will, of course, throw some black outfits in my bag. I know that August / September is lighter, more summery...but the middle of June? Any ideas?

I'm a dress person (and hat person). Black dresses? Colored dresses? Both?
