    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

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

+Gertie Shaw You can't talk about Britain being bad invaders when America killed millions of Native Americans. You should also learn what "penultimate" means because it makes no sense in the context you used it. Further more you weren't "forced" to become "worldly" in WW2, you were late as usual, whilst the rest of the world had the backbone to stand up to fascism, and you only joined when the war was already on the wane. Typical of an American ignoramus to think his country saved anyone. Your help was welcome, but it was Russia that truly saved the Allies in WW2.

+notformebeaky I really don't think Americans consciously try to exude anything, they are unaware, jolly tourists and try to get along with everyone in their own amiable ways and anything else is not planned or strategic. And yes fat too, which is disgusting, distasteful and awful in any nation or locale. Our food is full of shit what can one say except its beyond hope when Macdonalds is cheaper than one apple or a head of lettuce. But the worst "tourists" historically and factually were the Brits - let us not forget the original invaders/colonists, the penultimate destroyers of indigenous cultures (think of Australia, "Rhodesia", Kenya, S Africa, and India to name a few). Unsophisticated Americans were twice forced to become worldly in order to save Europe's butt during terrible great wars and the subsequent rebuilding with arms necessities put major coin and hubris into their minds and pockets - and so for a few decades these mostly blue collar and rural farm people visited the rest of the world, a world that they felt they sacrificed much to help save - but really folks - the day of the ugly American is almost over, and there's a new kid on the block and it's not Americans anymore. You'll miss us and our relatively generous, unaware butts believe me. Think about it.

+Gertie Shaw It's more that while other countries don't try to hide their culture, America almost tries to exude it more when abroad They stick out a mile because they are so loud, dress badly, usually fat, speak really loudly. I see hundreds of Spanish, French, Italian tourists where I live every day, and until you hear them speak, you can't really tell. I can spot an American at 100 yards, and often hear them before I see them. I've nothing against America or Americans, but when somewhere else, you should try to blend in a bit more.

+notformebeaky "And something in the way they move..." yes it's a whole combination of cultural mannerisms, nutrition, hair styles, clothes, speech, so don't try to hide your culture cuz you can't not really. People like honesty in the long run or they really don't care that much. If you want to not be targeted for crimes or bullying then yes try to blend in but by keeping in the background more.

Obnoxious. Europe is not a monolith. It’s an entire continent full of diverse cultures that wear different things at different times of the year and through the day. Also the entire tone of this video is super elitist. Focus more on travel experiences and personal expression through fashion and less on how you present to miserable people who look for a reasons to criticize outfits.

My husband is always taken for a European no matter what he wears when on the Continent and the UK, maybe his body shape or demeamor idk really. People think I'm Canadian but we're both Americans. It's something more than clothes just like I can spot foreigners here in the States, it's just something between the lines. My Russian colleague when in the States, people know he's foreign from a block away.

Honestly just wear white adidas sneakers, blue jeans (can be ripped, but not too much), a plain white shirt, a small necklace and some small earrings that match the necklace (color wise). Don’t wear a hat, and take a regular purse with you. You’ll look just like anyone else, if that’s what you’re looking for

Windbreaker...they have these adorable animal windbreakers with ears LOL and I want one to wear here in Prague...because it's hilarious and cute. I don't see others in it but then again I don't go to tourist spots. Another great idea for the church things is, I had shorts on and a sleeveless shirt when in Italy years ago. In my backpack I just shoved a scarf and this super lightweight skirt that didn't wrinkle. They took up hardly any room. When the guard outside the church stopped me I just threw on the skirt over my shorts and put the scarf around my shoulders and voila. When I came out, off they came.

I think cameras are a dead giveaway. As an American who lives in Prague I wear workout clothes..... because I live here and run to the gym.... Also, almost everyone here uses backpacks because most ppl travel by public transport. I mean it's true, these things do make you look like a tourist but.... locals wear them too so I think it's more an aura about ppl not living in a place that gives them away over someone traveling

Where I come from urban sneakers are more than okey to wear as long you don't don the whole gym ensemble. Sweatshirts too. Especially for relatively young people. And they are more often worn by men. Any sweatpants outside doing sports is a big no.

Wear whatever you want, but make sure you’re clean and presentable and that your clothes are appropriate for your situation since the rules are stricter especially in places of worship. Be proud of where you come from; if you’re American, exemplify the best that America has to offer. Lord knows Europeans love to wear American brands!

Don't mind me, I'm just here for the comments. Here in northern Germany most people especially girls my age usually walk around in full workout gear and many of them I know for a fact haven't seen a gym before. Backpacks... really? They are a necessity for many people + I can transport in a lot of stuff. Shoes: just the thought of waking around in heels gives me a migraine. I understand your list, but it's not a good representation of Europe's very diverse fashion culture

As a person living in Europe, I would say that European people are not that sofisticated as you think. I live in Spain and only some rich people dress that sofisticated, normally people actually COPIES AMERICAN CASUAL LOOKS, so just dress as you want but don't dress as tourists in movies with caps and colorfull shirts 😂

Nobody in Europe will deprive you of your rights to wear what ever you want. However, to blend in with the locals give you certain advantages. You are for instance less likely to draw attention from pickpocketers and other dubious people. In some places you may even pay the real price for things rather than the inflated tourist price. And yes, it is true that Europeans in general find the American dressing style quite amusing. Though, I really don't know wether Americans really enjoy walking around as other people's entertainment or not

Honestly, seeing tourists every day in Paris, the one thing that give it away is... they are way to overdress for just visiting a city, and they are the only ones dressed like that... You want to avoid being seen as a tourist ? Just dress very casual like you would at your home town. "Paris Chic" is only a thing for rich people, the average person would wear sneakers, a practical bag and jeans.

​+luina78 I felt the same. By the way you confirm what I've heard about Parisians - I mean that you can throw all that myths of Parisian chic out the window. And then they're very surprised when they actually get there. Of course if someone want to dress up, simple summer dress or skirt+t-shirt is OK

+Airanel i agree ! I have been to Belgium, England, Switzerland, Spain, Italy and Greece and the fashion was very much the same, i dressed like i always did in France and never felt out place, and my style is very relaxed and confortable, i'm happy to here it's the same in more eastern european countries ! I feel like maybe tourists just want to experience fully their idealized/stereotype romantic trip of Paris and dress like if they lived in a movie. But i'm mad when people think "a country = its capital"

When you walk ALL DAY and have to carry not only wallet, comfort is the most important thing. So trainers, hoody, and backpack is good for sightseeing. Besides a lot of people travel low cost planes and just cannot take so many clothes. Just 1 backpack, that's it. Her advise is good for reach people or millionaires

Europe is a continent. Depending on where you are the styles are VASTLY different. I'm German and do look like a fn' tourist in Eastern Europe... Athletic from-head-to-toe is totally normal in bigger cities in Germany for example. And caps, too. This is more like a "How to not look like a tourist in PARIS guide". And even that.. it hardly applies to the French youth as they, too, are very diverse in their fashion choices.

You know I have never been to Europe but I know lots of people who have and my daughter studied abroad in France. She wore exactly what she had and no one bothered her in fact they all loved her clothes and wanted some like them. My friends all wore baseball hats and jeans and American clothes. No one is going to go buy all these crazy clothes we don't wear in the USA. There is always somewhere to eat but I do not believe in being disrespectful when you travel. Also act like a decent person with manners and don't say things like we don't do this or that in America. So rude. Be respectful always✌✌✌

As a European that has visited most European countries - please do not listen to this advice. Nike sneakers are really popular, same goes for New Era caps. Backpacks are safe if you pay attention to the pockets in cities that might be a bit more prone to pickpockets. People wear flipflops in the summer, but it is true that maybe they will not let you enter a fancy restaurant.

I'm European and travelled around Europe, so belive me, we don't care, we really don't. Most countries are used to visitors anyway, and even how much you try, people will probably realize you're a tourist but you don't have to blend in, being a tourist is just fine. Just don't be annoying. Try to not be too loud, and not lounge all over the place, and you'll be fine. I've once went to Hungary and idk if it was ,,asians,, season or something, but it was FILLED with Asians, and Chinese people in special are very annoying tourist, if you avoid that, you're good.

I'm Italian and I'm living in Rome. I always see American tourists dressed like they are going to run or to a fictional beach placed just round the corner. Normally in Europe sportswear and beachwear is used only for sport and beach. It's unfair to enter in a restaurant dressed like a runner... In Rome dressing with beachwear like clothes avoids you to enter inside churches where are placed most of the Rome artistic masterpieces

I would also say that if you are in a shore city or with beaches like in Barcelona just keep your swimwear or bikini in the sea. Don't walk by the rest of the city in that condition because probably you will be fee by agents, you won't be able to use public transport and it's very anti hygienical. So please, cover yourself up a little, just a dress or a t-shirt when you are leaving the beach.

I've heard too not to have a camera hanging around your neck, as it's a dead giveaway. It is not as prevalent nowadays because of cameras on our phones... but I was told this by a friend in Amsterdam. Another thing is, rules, and what to wear and what not to wear in night clubs. I got into Amsterdam and my friend's husband met me at the airport then we took the train to Amsterdam. Make sure you have a ticket for the train, as they will check during your ride. Then, when women go to a nightclub don't wear a little black (or any color) dress with stockings and heels like we wear here in the US when we go out to a nice nightclub... as men will think you are a hooker! I won't tell you the looks and responses I got! Oh, my goodness... My friend was still in London when I arrived and her husband did not tell me this when he suggested taking me out that night! Ugh! When she got back home the next day and found he didn't tell me, she was understandably upset. She said to wear nice jeans or slacks and a nice top with comfortable shoes (but not sneakers like you said).

I recent traveled to France and we followed most of these rules (except the backpack), and we mostly got by, without looking too much like tourists, making us less of a target for pickpockets. We got approached a lot for directions which makes me think some people thought we were locals or foreigners that lived in Paris. Ankle boots are a must for the cobblestone streets of Paris. I rarely wear them at home but found myself reaching for them almost everyday. Some goes for cardigans, they are very practical for the weather (chillier in the morning, warm in the day and cold at night). You can slip them on when entering churches and restaurants and make yourself more presentable. Another great tip is to skip on denim jeans. Our luggage was way under the limit weight. Denim is so heavy. We got by with leggings, slacks and rompers. Not yoga pants but the thicker cotton blend leggings, that are so comfortable but don’t put your behind on display when you bend over.

I don't know why, maybe they're too classy, but I can always spot a European tourist here in Australia!

Swap the title out for "How to not look like an American while in Europe"

I know this is for Europe but Westerners should also learn to dress properly while they travel in Asia, especially when they visit temples. It is disrespectful that they keep on wearing revealing clothes or clothes that you wear when you're hanging out at home like short-shorts, spaghetti straps and all that crap. If they want their visitors to dress properly in a cafe they should also dress something respectful in temples or in heritage sites in Asia.

Wow this is amazing tips !!! Normally when people travel they think wearing very casual so that people won't scam you because they think you're poor but opposite now they know you're a tourist and you must have money to be able to travel dang !

I would like to add 2 things : in churches women should be "dressed" not shorts and tops. At archeological sites women have wear flat shoes.

first off your style is bad and secondly coming from a European a lot of these 'rules' aren't true. like who keep a rain coat in their bag for when it rains?

Being from Europe and traveling mostly to other European countries, I agree with her. You are not going to stand out or targeted , as many of us go round and about with gym apparel, BUT , you will feel a whole lot better in a chic , minimalistic look; you’ll also find that it’s more practical and you won’t feel self conscious at all during the day. Oh, and... LAYERS are key.

When I travel to France, I always wear my shirt that says "I'm an American, you're welcome."

She's not a mom AKA a pack mule. A backpack is a must for us. I don't even own purses anymore. They make some very trendy, small leather backpacks now. I have to say that I don't really care if I look like a tourist. I think that as long as you dress neatly & in a respectful manner you are good to go in any country. We are active travelers. We walk everywhere & we travel during summer. I can't imagine wearing all black in the blazing sun in Pompeii. We just rent apartments & head back to change/shower before dinner.
