What should I wear in Amsterdam the third week of June?

I am coming to Amsterdam the third week of June, after visitng Paris and Brussels for a week each. Will the weather there be similar? Is dress less formal in Amsterdam? Generally I will just be visiting museums and sights and going to casual restaurants.

Thanks in advance.

Usually it can be a few degrees colder than in Brussels and Paris. And informal is fine.

We dutch men prefer short skirts and high heels though.

Amsterdam is more casual than Paris and Brussels. In my mind jeans ALWAYS work in Amsterdam. Might want to dress them up a bit at times but they always work.

Wear whatever you want. We get all kinds of tourists here, from dreadlocked tattood youngsters to motor gang types, from Japanese funky hipsters to fancy business people, from Chinese mass groups to Americans in shorts with big white socks pulled all the way up. Nobody will take much notice of what you wear, even if you come in drag. This is Amsterdam!

As for the weather: it could be anything from +5 degrees to +35 degrees centigrade, and anything from summer hailstorms to gray rainy days or a heat wave. Bring thin layers to combine. If it's very rainy, just buy a cheap foldable umbrella or rain poncho at HEMA or another shop.

Haha, Ron, I meant the women on high heels of course.

I tried but they didn't have my size...

I am sure you can find them if you try, Gro.

I understand there is quite high demand for large-size women's shoes in Amsterdam.

It's rather disturbing that you guys want to see me in heels that desperately.... ;)
