Hi David! It’s absolutely OK to wear jeans — the key is to go as dark as possible. The lighter the jean, the more casual it is, so a nice-fitting pair of dark blue or black jeans will be just fine for almost any occasion. That said, if you are going to a ‘nice’ dinner, slacks might be a wise choice.

Hi Ladies. Quick question about jeans. Is it appropriate for Paris? We have nice clothes with us for daily use, but a good pair of designer jeans would go great for our nights at bistro’s etc. I had heard this is a fashion no-no in Paris. just looking for advice.


I appreciate the advice, sounds much like the weather in Vancouver…I now know what to pack for my trip in two weeks! can’t wait!

Love the tips, I will pack many layers for my upcoming trip!
