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

38186 ratings | 2989612 views
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 (by how you dress, speak and conduct yourself) 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 BLOG POST: http://www.audreyalamode.com/blog-audreyalamode/2018/6/22/what-not-to-wear-on-vacation-especially-in-europe-a-few-you-should FREE SUMMER TRENDS EBOOK: https://bit.ly/2JB0Ume MY FIRST EBOOK: https://bit.ly/2LRmAXN SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL HERE! http://bit.ly/2pFnkE7 ________________________________________________ WHAT I'M WEARING: Pinstripe: Zara (recently purchased from Poshmark) Earrings: Zara Signet Ring: Ruff's Signet Ring c/o https://www.ruffs.co.uk/ Delicate Stacking Ring: GLDN c/o https://bit.ly/2kQD475 c/o Watch: Jacy c/o https://bit.ly/2wMDgb6 ____________________________________________________________ Nice pants with an elastic waist that still look polished! https://bit.ly/2ImrAS8 Great cashmere sweaters: https://bit.ly/2IkONEz Lovely wool cardigan: https://bit.ly/2Khj4pi Wool V-Neck Under $30: https://bit.ly/2lwn6zD Cotton Cardigan Under $30: https://bit.ly/2lwn9LP Sleek Lace Up Sneakers: https://bit.ly/2KdEg2X Slip On Sneakers: https://bit.ly/2MmtLrd Some Beautiful Hats: Packable Straw Hat Under $35 https://bit.ly/2Mj2Qww Beret Under $20 https://bit.ly/2K4MyLl Fedora Under $50 https://bit.ly/2yzzxUI Fedora Under $70 https://bit.ly/2yEKUL4 Fedora Under $120 https://bit.ly/2tso2cs Some Great Crossbody Bags: Cute vegan option under $40 https://bit.ly/2K4udOi Really cute option under $130 https://bit.ly/2K2Yz3C My favorite under $200 https://bit.ly/2KhcKRV Versatile option under $230 https://bit.ly/2yzAuwg My favorite under $400 https://bit.ly/2KfTyRg My favorite ankle boots: https://bit.ly/2InSEAq Cute sandals under $180 https://bit.ly/2ImSZUi https://bit.ly/2IqaWRW Cute loafers under $170 https://bit.ly/2yCPUQl My favorite espadrille wedges https://bit.ly/2K4OjrQ ____________________________________________________________ - FOLLOW ME - INSTAGRAM | https://www.instagram.com/audreyacoyne/ BLOG | http://www.audreyalamode.com/ PINTEREST | https://www.pinterest.com/audreyalamode/ BUSINESS INQUIRIES | [email protected] ____________________________________ MUSIC: "Expensive Dinner" via EpidemicSound.com ____________________________________ Camera: Sony A7r iii https://amzn.to/2M0zQKT ____________________________________ NEW HERE?

Hi everyone - thanks so much for watching!! I want to pop on here quickly and say that OBVIOUSLY this video is full of generalizations and I don't mean to imply that these are universal truths across all people and countries. Of course each place has individual and unique customs and traditions that should always be celebrated and respected. Labeling this video in a very generalized "Europe" helps with YouTube analytics - which is why you're seeing this video in the first place. Also, the tips I'm sharing here are just general dressing tips, that when coupled with respect, cultural sensitivity, a true interest in the place I'm visiting, and at least a few words and phrases have helped me have a more enjoyable, immersive experience. xx Audrey

Sorry to say the cross body bags hold nothing inside except few essentials. where do you keep water bottles, your camera, your valuables...also most of the sidewalks are made of stone in Europe...converse, slip ons, boots , trendy shoes dont provide any support but do add to feet and leg pain. Most of the places are seen by foot...if shoes are not comfortable ...its not fun.

When in Berlin, stick to sneakers instead of loafers. Actually a Berlin uniform would be all black everything and white classic Reeboks.

But yeah running around in sports clothes is very American.

In The Netherlands it is perfectly fine to walk with flip flops. You will see a lot of natives walking around with them in the summer.
What a tasteful, elegant informational piece! I agree with all of these tips for travel fashion, especially when it comes to comfortable shoes. You don’t have to sacrifice fashion for comfort or vice versa, but there is a middle ground. Flats are great for dressy events and will spare you getting caught in cobblestones! A good pair of fashion sneakers will make you comfortable and stylish!

I'm Italian, I live in Napoli. Here we have plenty of American tourists going around in the city wearing beach clothes. Is something not only inappropriate, but is almost offensive to our culture. In some cities you can also have a fine for offense to city decorum. Furthermore, considering that a large part of our monuments are Catholic churches, wearing beach clothes you are not allowed to enter. Remember: Italy has a lot of beaches, but is not a whole beach.

I think it doesn't matter what you wear if you are in other country, people don't mind, the most important is, "Respect", the people their Culture, their Language. Their way of life.

This is the one thing that you must NOT do, I can forgive all else: Do NOT stop still, in a group, right in the middle of a crowded street while gaping at monuments. This goes doubly so when stopping at the top of the underground stairway. Oh and we can understand you so...DON'T comment on people unless you are comfortable with their overhearing you.
Nocturnalux (17 hours ago)
+176Blue I don't, I welcome their money. But everyone hates people who act as I stated. Would you like it if packs of people suddenly stopped still when you simply had to get to work on time? Or overhearing people making snide comments about you just because they think you don't understand them? In fact, this has nothing to do with foreigners. Go ask New Yorkers how they feel about their fellow Americans who stop agape atop the subway stations and they'll tell you how annoying it is.

We get it, you hate tourists.

If you are an American tourist in Europe, please do the following 2 things as a minimum:- 1) Don’t wear those horrible shorts and caps. That’s disgusting look. 2) Please don’t shout and please mind the queues!

Honestly - how stupid are you? And as many wrote: how stupid can someone be and think Europe is overall the same? That’s like as if I said: oh well all Asians are the same, dress the same and behave the same. Realize now what you are telling people here? How about educating yourself? And not with InTouch or OK or any other stupid womens magazin about your Wannabe famous celebs? You really think you are smart? Try reading abook. You are a perfect example of a person with prejudices like: all european woman do not shave their hair and bla bla bla. Shame on you! You want to see yourself on camera? Get an education and travel through every country in Europe. Than create a new clip. Greetings from Switzerland and no it IS NOT Sweden.

Why tourist shouldn’t be look like a tourist?
Andreia Fernandes (10 days ago)
And if you are from anywhere at North hemisphere visiting any country at South America, avoid beige-cargo-pants/shorts and sneakers with knee-high socks. You'll be screaming that you're a foreigner. Not that we care, but you will surely be in the sights of robbers :-p
Anna Kemp (11 days ago)
This is an old video. At the moment the style in Italy is snickers, jeans, hoodies...more American than that I can’t say. It’s very ironic because when an European visits US we can spot him also, and we are happy they are here and don’t make a big deal if they look touristy
Sweet and Wild (11 days ago)
As soon as an American opens their mouth, everyone knows they are a target! They are so loud, and don't understand the culture.
Angie Charron (11 days ago)
It looks like europeans don't want the Americans touring their countries......Well their dollars and loud voices are very welcome in Colombia. We have a lot of old churches and run down places too ha ha ha. It is cheap, and we are very nice and welcoming. We love tourist since it helps our economy and gives us the opportunity to meet people different than us that is willing to enjoy the experience.

Therese Vella (11 days ago)
Whenever we travel to a european country, my husband and I are instantly recognizable as tourists, not because of our clothes, which are roughly what Audrey Coyne suggested but because we keep staring at maps, and taking photos of every little bit of architecture! In Malta, where i come from, tourists are easily recognizable and overcharged, most of the times.
They would have to look at my face once to know im not from Europe,

Thanks for telling these things to Americans 🙈 I never understood why they spend so much in shopping but still would wear gym clothes and flip flops everywhere :/

Let me sum this up. Wear clothes from the 90’s. Wish I did this when I went to European, would have fit right in.
Liz Freeman (13 days ago)
Again, thank you. This reminds me of the lessons we learned about being respectful and conservative. My dad said when he was young here in the States if you entered a restaurant and did not have a tie, ties were available. I myself at 50, am growing tired of seeing people enter a restaurant with body parts out.
Liz Freeman (13 days ago)
Thank you. Growing up my parents who are Southerners always taught us about dressing appropriately.

Americans are just loud. Thats all. No need to be pretentious on what to wear. Wear a dress, a pants. Even a sack.

In *Victoria Australia*, (you can really wear whatever you want but just a guideline if you want if you don't care move on doesn't bother me) *side note fellow Victorians/Melbournians if you care to add to the list feel free or correct any errors* THE BEACH AREA/COAST/THE BURBS winter/autumn - dress warm and suited for a downpour but able to take something off because the weather will change every 5 minutes and you will receive all 4 seasons in an average of 20 mins. (you may get the odd 30ºC day out of the blue so watch out) summer - hot so you may as well wear nothing, but try to dress lightly (still keeping in mind the sun exists WAY too much) and as if you literally just came from the beach, or something cute and casual, if you wanna be like me and rock some pants and stuff well just prepare for sweat galore *STAY HYDRATED AND SUNSCREEN* also another note thongs (flip flops whatever you call em) are pretty good in summer, just try to avoid them melting and maybe change if you are going out to a restaurant. spring - quite often can be a mix of the two but more to the warmer side, whatever mother nature decides on that day I suppose THE CITY/URBAN AREA winter/autumn - just casual and rugged up (the random hot day rule still applies) and BE SURE to have something to protect you from rain, also the 4 season thing is still in the works, just downpours are usually more severe summer - can get PRETTY hot so just dress how you would in summer (maybe a little more cautious of heat and sun at the same time somehow) maybe not as much of a beachy look but hey you do you. *STAY HYDRATED AND SUNSCREEN* spring - just dress according to the day (the mixture of seasons still applies) THE COUNTRYSIDE/RURAL AREAS winter/autumn - gets very cold (especially at night), during the day still pretty cold so dress warm but still a surprise visit from the godforsaken sun may arrive, so the same dress warm and be precautious summer - can get VERY hot so hot that droughts come in sooo do what you want with that info, be sun smart and think of the heat (because if you have ever had heatstroke you know it sucks real bad) *STAY HYDRATED AND SUNSCREEN* spring - you know the drill.

Most airlines in Europe have a baggage allowance of 15kg. You'll need triple that with hats, sandals, trench coats, jumpers, 🤦‍♀️

Americans are a bit loud when in Europe. Right clothes but loud is a dead giveaway that they are tourist. I wear gym shoes most of the times here in Europe. Most people do. I have one of those plasticky coat as well. Winter is all about blue or black. If you wear something like a summer color you will surely stands out.

I'm from Mexico and I was found it really funny when you mentioned the flip flops because the way we spot a USA tourist here is because of this item and also crocs, usually people in Mexico City don't use this kind of footwear so it is very notorious

When travelling to Eastern Europe, as a woman, bring a scarf too for visiting certain (maybe all) orthodox churches. This applies at least to Ukrain and Moldova, maybe to other countries too.

My worst nightmare is to look like an American tourist while traveling! Nice movie, but whatever an American wears, they stand out as loud, obese, arrogant and demanding. Sorry, just my opinion.
Isis Irving (25 days ago)
I’m confused on why you don’t want to look like a tourist?? Like why would looking like an American mean I can’t see certain things or be welcome in certain places? I’ve never traveled abroad so I guess I don’t get why looking like I’m traveling is a negative...
