This packing list is ideal during periods of transitional weather in Paris or when you’re traveling to both warm and cold countries on the same trip. Add one jacket and one additional layer if you’re going to a much colder destination in addition to Paris.
It’s not uncommon for women to wear thin black tights or stocking with their dresses or skirts in Paris or the rest of Europe. Add a pair to any of these packing lists if the forecast shows fluctuating weather.
Top Parisian Shoe Trends
Trends: Leather tan sandals + navy wedges + white Superga sneakers + black ankle boots + ballet flats black and ivory + tan brogues
The shoes above are similar options to the footwear trends that were most prevalent on the streets of Paris during my recent summer trip. Plan your clothing using the below packing list suggestions and then choose the best Parisian shoes inspired styles to complement your travel outfits. Remember, three pairs of shoes is the magic number to pack when it comes to travel!
What to Wear in Paris in Summer
Weather: Summers in Paris can get very hot, but the weather is unpredictable and it can turn chilly. You will find the hottest time of the day is usually the mid to late afternoon.
Packing for Paris: For the cooler days in May and June, you’ll need a good pair of jeans in a darker shade, which you can wear tucked into your comfortable ankle booties. However, summer is also the time to make use of your wedge sandals, which will instantly transform your wardrobe into a summery one.
Always be aware of your surroundings. Scan the area around you and occasionally watch your back and sides.
Don’t ever be afraid of insulting someone if you feel uncomfortable in a situation. If your gut winces then give the suspected person or people the dirtiest, meanest look you can conjure and walk away quickly.
Avoid appearing lost. Walk with a purpose. If you do get lost, walk into a well-lit area or preferably a shop or restaurant where you can review your map privately.
