What type of clothes to bring? May-June Euro Escapase
- 5 responses so far
I am also on this trip and really confused as to what to pack! Originally i was thinking of:
1 pair jeans
1 pair trackpants (to wear on plane/bus etc)
2 pairs of 3/4 length pants
2 pairs of shorts
Plus a couple of dresses (two going out and two casual, also packing tights to wear with these if cold)
I have since read a few conflicting reports of what to expect weather wise in europe at this time and am wondering whether i need to revise. Maybe i should take two pairs jeans and just one pair 3/4 pants?! Its hard trying to cover all weather possibilities and pack lightly <!--graemlin::confused:-->
Right before you go you can check the forecast for the first couple days of your trip to see if the weather will be warmer or colder to start, and make some adjustments based on that.
Hi Flippy! You’re also on May 18th escapade? <!--graemlin::)-->
True, there are a lot of conflicting posts about the weather, but I think the key is still to pack lightly. That’s why I wanted to bring more leggings instead of jeans. So far, I might bring:
2 pairs of jeans
3 pairs of shorts
and of course a 3-4 dresses.
I’m a little worried though if shorts and leggings will be enough for warmth. During my US trip, it was also around 15 degrees, I just used warmers under my jeans.
I’m so excited for this trip!!! <!--graemlin::)-->
Oh, and I’ll be definitely checking the weather a week or two before the trip! Thanks for the advice! <!--graemlin::)-->
Leggings under jeans are a good idea… i might pack a pair of those too just in case. I’m kind of stuck for the top half though. At this stage i think i’m going to pack:
Half a dozen singlets / tanks / tshirts
A couple of 3/4 length sleeve tops
A long sleeve shirt
Maybe a thermal top just in case?
A waterproof jacket
Also a couple nicer / going out tops
I hope that will cover it! I suppose i can just layer layer layer if i start to freeze.
