What to Wear in Palo Alto:
You know how to match the temperature to your wardrobe selection, so this list focuses more on style and practical considerations you might not think of.
• Casual clothing is fine most of the time in Palo Alto, even in some of the nicer restaurants.
• A few restaurants may have dress codes. If you're thinking of high-end eating, check ahead.
• You may also want to get a little dressed up if you plan to go to a theater performance.
• Palo Alto is full of micro-climates and the temperature can change a lot in a single day. Whether or not it's fashionable, planning your wardrobe with lots of layers is a good way to go.
• Summer fog in Palo Alto is colder than you can imagine. If you're going from May through July, pack all the layers you think you'll need, then pack one more. Or be prepared to make an emergency sweatshirt purchase.
• Good walking shoes are a must, with all those hills you may want to walk up and down.
What to Pack for Palo Alto
These are a few things that we have found helpful to have along when going to Palo Alto:
• If your hair tends to frizz in humid places, bring extra products to keep it tamed.
• In winter, you might need an umbrella or raincoat. Just looking at the averages doesn't tell the whole story and weather patterns vary a lot from year to year.
