What to Wear in London/Germany

HELP - with the recent heat wave, and it being my first time in London & Germany . . . I simply have no idea how I should dress? Dress warmly, in layers, expect rain, sleet, snow, typhoon???? I?ll be in London from 9/15/03-9/19/03, then will be in Munich for Oktoberfest until 9/25/03. Thanks in advance for your ideas/suggestions!!

You'll have mild weather in Munich and you might want a jacket/etc., for possible cooler nights.

Just mix it up...bring some long sleeved shirts, sweaters and a jacket... you should be fine...

But then again, if you're doing your job at Oktoberfest, it shouldn't matter what you're wearing.

Stick to darker clothing, not pastel or prints.
Also, slacks go everywhere. I had brought some skirts for concerts and opera in Germany, and over half the women were wearing pants.
Pants (dark, lots of black) with tops and blazers can go everywhere.
A short rain jacket can be very handy.
We will be in London at that time, too, and it's usually pleasant. It showers often, but it's usually brief and not heavy. A small, folding umbrella is important.
Have a great time!

I'm a terrible overpacker - I'm certain I will end up bringing way too much! Thanks for everyone's advice!!!

Hi Sandy,

I live in northern England. We have had an incredible summer here - one of the best summers England has had in YEARS. Simply gorgeous.

I can't tell you exactly what London will be like in a few weeks, but I can tell you that up here (we're about 5 1/2 hours north of London), we're still having nice days, but the temps have dropped and it feels like we're into Fall, now. A mixture of sunshine, gray skies, high winds, rainy days, chilly nights...

So definitely bring a light jacket, preferably one that is waterproof.
