How To NOT Look Like A Tourist | What To Wear In Europe

How To NOT Look Like A Tourist | What To Wear In Europe
I’ve been very lucky to travel in my life, both within the United States and abroad. Today I want to share 6 things I like to avoid wearing while on vacation so that I can fit in a little easier. Assimilating will make you less easily targeted as a tourist, help you experience your destination as more of an insider rather than an outsider, and will ensure you don’t get turned away from restaurants or important landmarks. I’ve linked everything mentioned down below, and like always thank you so much for watching! xxAudrey

  1. Wow Audrey you did it again. This content category is rarely addressed. I really enjoyed this. Great value-added well thought out information. Thank you

  2. Here in Spain you can see tourists wearing sandals with white socks!!! OMG ! This is an absolute NO GO…🙈

  3. You just forgot the major american dress not to impress mistake !! WHITE SOCKS 😱

  4. Fantastic advice. I live in the Georgian Quarter of Liverpool, England (where such series as Victoria, Fantastic Beasts and Foyles War are filmed). Nearly all the streets are cobbled and flip flops would basically be impossible. Even flat sandals can be tricky because the tip sometimes gets caught. Oxfords or Chelsea boots are an excellent choice.
    An umbrella is a good choice but they are easy to lose and no good in windy weather. I do think an umbrella would make you instantly look local in the UK however – I never see tourists with them.
    It always amuses me that Americans think Europe is full of pickpockets. The only time that really crosses my mind is if I was on a crowded train. But, to be honest, I have never been pickpocketed in forty five years of living in Europe – and I'm not the most street-wise person 🤣

  5. Great list! I'd like to add the common sense step of doing a little Google research on the area to see how the locals dress. Hair and makeup could be added to the list. For example, many European women are more into skincare than cosmetics, so if an American woman shows up with 3 lbs of makeup on, it's a dead giveaway. I also don't notice blue jeans as much in Europe. I see more black pants and khakis/chinos of various colors. Cross body bags are perfect, as you say. And there are tiny locks available at Target or Walmart to keep the zipper secure if you're traveling to a crowded city. If I'm wearing a coat, I usually wear a small cross body bag underneath with my coat zipped. Luckily, I've never been pickpocketed, but I know many people who have been.

  6. I can agree to eveything except the shoes: Alle the shoes you showed are not good enough for walking the whole day in. Sneakers might work for the first day but not if you walk in them for 3 days straight you'll need a better sole.
    And where have you been to say ppl in europ don't wear FlipFlops?! Here they wear them all the time, even in the offce, it's so annoying argh Who wants to see the (most times not manicured,) sweating feet of everyone around?!

  7. The link to the slip on sneakers doesn’t work. Can you please tell me what brand those are? Thank you.

  8. Love this and all your videos so much! 😄 I would love it if you did a version for men too!! 😁

  9. These were really good advice! I live in a Scandinavian capital and think everything you said applies, like you don't really see people wearing flip flops or those designer slides but seakers are everywhere. For dinner you need to change to proper shoes though. Your advice picture a very timeless and classic stylish look.
