What to wear in Amsterdam

edited July 2009 in - General Europe
Hi all!

Could someone plz give me some clues as to what to wear in Amsterdam in august? The weather is somehow similar in july and august, and I've heard about sweaters and stuff, but i think this must be too much for the weather. Are jeans "obligatory" or could we just wear short pants and t-shirts?

    Hi there,

    I am from Holland but living in the UK, I would say Amsterdam is as diverse as London and you can wear whatever you fancy (dependant in the weather of course).

    But if you are planning on going out for dinner somewhere nice you might want to make an effort.

    Mane sure you check the weather, it can be as unpredictable as in England!
