Capsule Wardrobe For River Cruising

Updated: Sep 7, 2023

What to Pack for Springtime in Europe - Spring of '23

This weeks' video is a bit different, I'm putting on a bit of a fashion show to show what I'm packing and wearing on my upcoming river cruise.

I will be landing in Amsterdam in early May, then travelling to Paris to board a fantastic river cruise on the Seine to Normandy with Avalon Waterways. I will be gone with my husband for two weeks in Europe, so be sure to follow along on my social media for updates.

I've had a few questions about what to wear on a river cruise ship, so I thought I would post this to show what I will be wearing. You want to make sure you are going to be comfortable during the day while exploring and going on excursions, and then when you are back on the ship, you generally want to put on a nice top. River cruising is overall a very casual way to travel.

This is my capsule wardrobe featuring lots of neutrals that can mix-and-match with basically everything else.

I will be packing:

3 Bottoms - 1 pair of black slacks, 2 pairs of different coloured jeans

7 Tops 3 Footwear - 1 pair of black short rubber boots, a white pair of runners, and a pair of black sandals

1 Trench coat with hood

1 Black blazer

1 Casual linen dress

2 Silk scarves
