Packing for Paris in the Spring

Q. I will be traveling in Paris the month of April.  Is it appropriate to wear a black velvet jacket dressed down with jeans in April?  Also, is it too early to wear linen or white jeans?

A. Skip the black velvet in April, it’s past the cold weather time frame for for this plush fabric.  White jeans work all year long, pair them with a black sweater for a crisp look or a bright colored lightweight cashmere sweater or even a striped long sleeve top.  And it’s too early for linen, wait for 80 degree days instead.
