What to wear in London and Paris in May

Jump to last reply

I am going on a trip to London and Paris next week, and I'm not really sure what to pack. I have heard no tennis shoes, shorts, or bright colors, but what else should I keep in mind while packing? Are Chacos acceptable? Do Europeans still wear boots in May since it's still cold? I have never left the southern states, so I don't really know how to prepare for other climates, especially in another culture. Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated.
