Heading to Europe & Not Sure What to Pack? Here are a few things that my fellow US travelers may want to avoid packing if they are traveling to Europe.
1. Baseball Caps: Europeans in general do not wear baseball caps, especially backwards. You would be better served to wear a more traditional hat. You will see an occasional NY Yankee hat, but why not buy the fancy hat you always wanted instead?
2. Athletic Wear: Europeans tend to wear athletic wear to do sports, not to wear around town. There is a trend of more athleisurewear in Europe, but it is not to the extent that there is in US.
3. Khakis: the omnipresent US male pant choice is not something you will see too often in Europe. Go for colored pants or jeans. If you want khaki like pants wear Chinos instead of Dockers. The pants you will see are a thinner cut or “skinnier” fit than in the US.
4. Oversized US University Sweatshirts.
5. Sport Shoes or High Heals: US sport shoes and white socks are not quite as popular in Europe as they are in the US. You may be better off with Urban Street shoes like Vans instead. Also, women should be careful with high heels as with all the cobblestone it is easy to hurt your ankles.

    Please Note: This Video is for 35+ year old US travelers heading to Europe. Young Europeans do wear most of these styles and trends, but the 35+ European crowd do not wear them to the same extent. And the locals won't care what you wear, so this is more to help you blend in a bit better. Great travels to you all & Thank you for all the comments & subscriptions.

    One more thing: do you have ANY idea how many europeans sport the american university hoodies and t-shirts? Bc they are EVERYWHERE and they're sold in popular brand stores in europe. You can't visit a few countries and assume that's the go-to for europe in general, bc europe is soooo diverse. (for instance, balkan people wear a LOT of sports clothes daily, it's a thing there)

    From a Portuguese standpoint: nobody cares what you wear. As long as you don't behave obnouxiously or loud, no one will bother you.

  • filip gura 1 year ago

    I am fucking european and we are wearing sport clothes and stuff usually

  • Burkhard Schmidt 1 year ago

    I'm European (Germany) and in my country, none of these things really apply because the people around here will probably not care at all. It might be different in other countries of Europe, but there are clearly differences between the countries.

    Badly educated, culturally impoverished people all look the same throughout the world. Like Americans.

  • Ruca Solo 1 year ago

    Groups of americans wearing NRA baseball caps….. truly shocking to us europeans (that care).

  • Merel Bos Waaldijk 1 year ago
