Q&A: What to Wear to Nice, France

May 8th, 2009

Q:  I’m going on holiday to Nice in June and wanted some advice on what to wear.

How to Mix and Match Patterns
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

June is a wonderful time to visit Nice.  In June, the weather is mild (think temperatures in the 60s and 70s), and while the tourist season is definitely underway, it’s not yet at its peak.  You’ll be able to enjoy everything from museums to gourmet restaurants - and catch some time in the sun at the beach.  Here’s what to pack for a trip to Nice, France:

Outerwear: A single light jacket for cool evenings will be enough.  Try a lightweight trench for versatility and style.

Tops: Pack a layering sweater, a few comfy tees, and a variety of tops with sophisticated cuts and patterns.

Bottoms: Bring a couple of pairs of long pants to pair with your tops.  A skirt or a pair of shorts is optional but welcomed.

Dresses: A nice sundress for daytime and a cocktail dress for evening will suffice.

Shoes: A good pair of comfortable walking shoes, a pair of sandals, and flip flops for the beach will do the trick.

Last thoughts?  You may also want to pack a scarf or two to give your outfits a bit of an extra visual punch. And don’t forget your bathing suit and sunscreen!

    I’ve spent a lot of time in Nice and have been there in June. The weather in June was rather warmer than what you are describing. As for how to dress, it depends on whether or not you care about looking like a tourist. For a start, only Americans wear tennis shoes. Also, French women seem to prefer muted tones and wear few prints. Shorts would be fine on the beach, but not in a decent restaurant. Scarves are too hot in the summer! Have a great time!

    If you go swimming, I suggest you buy cheap plastic shoes. The beach is not sand but what is called as “gallets”, small stones. Going bare feet is hard when you come out of the sea. I agree, June is a warm time of year. Dress in layers.
