What to wear in Seattle...

Seattle is a tricky place to dress for. In the summer, it will be much cooler here than it is on the east coast or the mid west. See the forecast.

If you're planning on taking a ferry or visiting mom and dad's house on the sound, make sure that you bring plenty of warm clothes and a windproof jacket (if you have one).

The key to dressing like a native of the northwest is layers. For example, a sample outfit for a day at mom and dad's house might be: jeans, a tank top, a long sleeve shirt, a fleece vest, and a windproof jacket.

Odds are you'll do some hiking while you're here, make sure to bring sturdy hiking shoes.

The northwest is very casual. You can wear jeans to almost any restaurant in seattle.

The Short List:

  • Sturdy Hiking Shoes/Boots
  • Gortex or other Windproof/Waterproof but not too heavy jacket
  • Sweatshirt or long sleeved fleece
  • Jeans
  • Shorts
  • Sunscreen (but not too much)
  • Clothes that can get wet (if you want to kayak)
  • Some sort of hat or hood
