I just returned from the Best of Switzerland tour with an initial three days in London. Here are some observations on what I saw Europeans wearing. This is not an extensive list but focuses on items tourists sometimes have questions about.
- Short Shorts - observed on both men and women, though the elderly man on the train to Zurich airport surprised me
- Knee pants / capris
- Zip-off pants (to make shorts)
- Muscle shirts
- Flip Flops
- White sneakers
- White socks and black socks - also seen with sneakers including white sneakers
- Baseball caps or similar
- Knapsacks and day packs - including by some elderly folks
- Fanny packs - worn primarily in front
- Board shorts
- Keen type sandals
- Skinny jeans
- Regular jeans everywhere
In London, I took a London Walks tour. The guide wore a baseball cap, a madras shirt, khaki shorts, and neon blue sneakers. None of these were in similar colors. He said he lives in London.
I list these items for folks who may question whether their choices will fit in with clothes worn in Europe. I do not have photos or videos to share. On the Fodors European forum, sometimes videos are posted that may be helpful. Also, I found the websites of European department stores useful in checking out what is current. Hope this helps some folks who have questions.
Myself, I wore mostly black capris and long pants, print t-shirts and short-sleeved tops, dark colored light-weight sweaters, an LL Bean water-proof jacket, Merrell hiking sandals, Bernie Mev maryjanes, a Baggallini sling bag, and a hat I bought at Manor in Luzern.
