Updates on What not to Wear in Europe (UK, France) 2011???

Jump to last reply

I'd like updated information (If it is different from the 2007 blog or thread). I am female and will be traveling with my husband and two sons (late teens) to UK, France and Geneva in early June.

I'd love information on shoes (comfortable, walking a lot) for the men and for myself.

Also, for me are dresses practical? Khaki or stone slacks? Black slacks? Split skirt (gauchos? or wide-leg capris?) for me? (I'll also be bringing long-sleeve tees and sweaters (I'm sun-sensitive) and Wallaroo hat(s) and scarves).
We've convinced the men not to wear jeans, and probably not shorts too often. They'll be wearing dark and khaki slacks and button or polo shirts. What about "ThinkGeek" t-shirts? (ThinkGeek.com) (mostly the science ones)

What about the cuter Crocs for my footwear? (Ballet-flats or the old Alice)? What about Sketcher shape-ups in black? For men, are dark or black lace-up athletic or sneakers acceptable? (We heard we should wear 'loafers')
Thank you so much for any assistance offered. I'm grateful!
