Avoid bright colors

Some people love to express themselves by wearing very colorful outfits. However, in some contexts, these will stick out as tacky and will be definitive tourist signals.

Our advice is to avoid this kind of colors that can transform you into a target not only for jokes but also for scams.

If you want, by any means, to wear a bright color, try to limit it to a small accessory, so that you can remain on the dressier side.

Wear sundresses

... but don't overdo it

When visiting the Eiffel Tower, you shouldn't over-accessorize your outfit. This means that you shouldn't wear an excessive amount of jewelry, or multiple statement pieces at once, but it also means that your outfit shouldn't contain too many details - for example do not wear a belt with a statement buckle, multiple jewelry chains, fringed sleeves and an embellished top all at once.

Too many details are always distracting and should be avoided, especially for day events.

Jeans are okay

If on the dressier side, regular jeans are okay to be worn at the Eiffel Tower.

Keep things simple and choose a cute pair of blue or black jeans in the right size for your body.

Here are our sustainable suggestions.

Ripped jeans are not the best

For this occasion, ripped jeans aren't the best choice because there are too laid back and you want to go for an outfit that's a little bit more elegant.

Keep your ripped jeans for other, more relaxed, occasions, and choose a pair of regular jeans if you want to wear denim on your visit to Eiffel Tower.

Less is more

Avoid brand logos

Showing off brand logos is a thing of the past for elegant people. Even if you love to treat yourself with expensive clothes, you should always avoid logo prints and brand tags that are exposed in plain sight.

Avoid gym clothes

In many countries, people wear gym clothes as street wear - however, that's not the case in France. Wearing sports clothes in France is like wearing a label that says you are a tourist.

There is, of course, nothing wrong with being a tourist, but if you want to blend in, you should dress up a little bit, and avoid looking like you're going to the gym.

This will also help a lot in case you want to eat in one of their restaurants. Most of them have a smart casual dress code and do not allow sports attire.

Flat shoes

Wear cute skirts

Avoid trying to look too French

Wearing too many of these at once can however have the opposite of the desired effect and look like you are trying too hard, therefore you should carefully use them and never overdo it. Remember, less is more!

Summing up
