Hello, all--I have searched the forums (fora?) but the latest advice is ~5 years old, and I know fashions do change, and my husband and I haven't been to France for many years. We and our 16-year-old son will travel in France for 2 weeks in June. We're not likely to do much/any fine dining. We'll be in Paris and Bordeaux, plus Dordogne. While it's unlikely we'll be mistaken for locals, we don't want to stand out too much.
My husband will bring lightweight pants and maybe one pair of shorts for the beach, plus t-shirts, polos and some casual button-up shirts. I will pack similarly, plus capris/skirts/dress. Is the advice still that people tend to wear dark/black at least in cities (like NYC)? Are khakis still not a thing there? The average temperature in Paris in June is 74 fahrenheit, but if there's another record heat wave, I expect all bets are off and we'll wear shorts and just own our tourist status.
Here, our son lives in track pants and athletic shorts (and questionable footwear that will not be making the trip :-). He is saying jeans, but I think they're too heavy, and of course don't dry overnight if you need to wash them in a hotel sink. What do teenaged boys wear in France in the summer?
