Winter in Europe - Fashion and alike

27 Jun 2013 TeziNYE88 asked


I have never been to Europe before, I live in Brisbane and have never really experienced cold below 8°C (which was at night rugged up in bed) so I want to know any tips or tricks on keeping warm without looking like a snowman or it all about the layers? Also, would you suggest purchasing my jacket/coat in London when I arrive (dec 27 this year) or should i not risk it and purchase it in brisbane (would have to be now as we will be in summer when i leave)

    Hi !!
    Which tour are you doing?? I also arrive in London from Melbourne on the 27th Dec to leave on the European Inspirations tour on the 28th :). I am planning on buying a coat over here soon while its winter still if I can find one cause it will be very cold in London when you arrive and going from our summer to England’s winter is a big adjustment so I think it would be handy to have a coat already.

    HEY Im going the European Trail leave on the 28th as well…where are you staying on the night of the 27th? I believe i am booked in to the Royal National…Im just worried (since im in brisbane) that anything I buy will be substandard due to the fact we only really get down to about 15°C during the day and a light jacket suffices…

    Yeah i think thats where im staying too!! Is that the hotel where the tours leave from?? If so then thats the place im booked in too :). Yeah i know what you mean, I am struggling… I went shopping today and looked at coats and found nothing i liked, theres just not a lot of options over here for coats now and before we know it … summer stock is in. At this moment in time im considering buying in a coat in london on the 27th, i think our flight (im travelling with a friend) gets in real early on the morning of the 27th and we want to stay awake all day anyway so we can sleep that night so will probably go coat shopping then if i dont find somethin here.

    Hey guys!
    I’m from Sydney and I’m doing the European Inspiration on the 28th :) I’m actually dreading the cold so I’ve actually gone a bit overboard and already bought 3 coats to take over. I got them from Target, I know that sounds lame, but they were only $30 each. I also got thermals haha. My sisters boyfriend did the same tour the year before and he said it was freezing!
