I'll be in northern France (Normandy, Loire, Paris) in July and I'd like to bring a skirt for comfort and to keep me cool. It is below the knees. Good idea?
I say great idea, if you normally wear skirts or feel comfortable wearing them. I find skirts much more comfortable for travel in the summer.
Have a great trip!
Skirts are very common for day to day wear in the summer for the exact reason you mention - keeping cool.
Elisabeth, Only pack it if you are used to wearing a skirt. This post has been discussed in the past, and if you're normally not a skirt wearer, then more likely than not, your skirt will stay in the suitcase. Skirts are very nice to have, and they take up little room... but only if you plan on wearing it. :)
