    Dress for the Weather

    by nkhong Updated Jan 13, 2011

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are coming during the winter, be prepared for generally, sunny days and cool evenings. The best way to dress is in layers. When it does rain, it is chilly. So be prepared and do bring a warm jacket. When the sun is out, the days are quite comfortable and nice.
    People on average dress pretty well and when you go to any of the clubs or nice restaurants, be prepared to dress up. Guys are recommended collared shirts. Try not to wear ripped jeans or work out gear out as some places do have strict dress code policies.

    For the month of March

    by iam1wthee Written Apr 21, 2009

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you bring a spring jacket and a baseball cap or kangol hat for your head. Some days are a little cool and the mornings and nights can be cold.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Hit the beach in the afternoons when it is warmer.

    What To Wear

    by texasaussie Written Aug 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the summer, California is a great place for shorts and tank tops. If your are near a beach I advise you to bring a light jacket, it does get a little cooler than usual.
    At night, I would prefer to wear jeans because it's hot during the day but very cool at night. I learned that lesson.
    Bring flip flops. Get rid of that sock tan line while you can.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bring a beach umbrella if possible. It can get fairly hot to where you can just feel your skin burning.

    Weather Varies in the Spring--pack it all!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather can be fickle during the spring--so make sure you pack for cool in the morning to hot in the afternoon. Crazy.
    Absolutely bring sandles, although there are lots of cheap shoe stores everywhere you look.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Allergy medicine!!! We got hit hard with new pollens. Sunscreen, after the fog burns off you could be in trouble.

    LA Weather changes with the sun

    by LiLz Updated Sep 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Always dress in layers for a full-day outing in Los Angeles. Though the afternoon may be very warm, evening temperatures can drop leaving you chilly if not downright cold. I've wasted a lot of money buying sweatshirts because I forgot to bring one along. Do yourself a favor - through a sweater in a bag or in the car - you'll probably need it when the sun sets.

    Dress in layers

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The day and night temperature vary greatly in LA regardless of the time of the year. So I try to tell people to dress in layers, then you can adjust accordingly. Always bring a sweater or a jacket.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen if you are particularly sensitive to the sun

    Don't Forget a Jacket or Else!

    by marinarena Updated Aug 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You may think L.A. is all about sun but when it goes down in the evening, it's gone and what is often left is a chill. Not only during the latter months but also in the spring and summer, one can feel the breezy temperatures.

    If you are close to the beach, you will feel the marine layer and down right freeze without a thick second layer on many nights. Also in the inland areas, expect some nippy winds.

    So, bring a jacket along with that t-shirt and pair of shorts! You'll want to go out and enjoy the nightlife, so be well-prepared!

    Packing List

    by aramas Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Los Angeles has a very strange weather. You can have up to 30 C during the day and in the evening around 18 ! Evenings are very chilly here. So have a jacket with you.
    Generally even in summer the weather never gets over 30. Specially near the beaches you have a very refreshing breeze which comes from the ocean and freshens up the temperatures of the coastside to the downtown LA. In the vallies (San Fernando Valley and San Gabriel Valley) the temperatures can get very hot during the summer.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Nothing to advise. Just a good sun protection cream.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you plan to go to the national parks, it can get very cold up there. On 2000 m height it gets very chilly. So be prepared !
