What to wear visiting England and France during winter?

Jump to last reply

We have plans to visit London and Paris during Christmas break. As someone that lived in southern california all my life I am not sure how thick does the jackets have to be for actual winter.

The thickest jacket I own is probably this jacket: https://www.thenorthface.com/shop/mens-anden-triclimate-jacket-clb6-c1. I assume this isn't thick enough for the actual winters temperatures right?

As for pants, I always just wore jeans in the winter here in california, will that be enough or what should I buy?

As for shoes, I always wore sneakers (runners, nike/adidas) I am assuming these mesh shoes will not cut it for rainy days. Will leather sneakers be thick enough? I am trying to find shoes that I can reuse after the trip so I want to avoid buying thick boots if possible :)
