Appropriate Clothes for Each Season

Brussels Weather

Since Brussels has a temperate climate, mild winters and pleasantly warm summers are to be expected in the city. In winter, the temperature in the city averages 3°C or 38°F with frequent light snow and rain showers. During springtime, the city's average temperature rises to an average of 9°C or 48°F with lesser chances of both snow and rain. Summer is pleasantly warm with a daytime temperature that averages 20°C or 68°F. In fall, the temperature averages 10°C or 50°F with December as its wettest month.

Winter

In wintertime, gorgeous shows of lights and sounds take place in the city. Make sure that you're warm and comfortable in visiting the city's popular attractions by wearing a coat, scarf, hat, gloves, and boots. There's also a significant chance of snow and rain, so wearing weatherproof boots and jackets would be the best way to go. Although it is unlikely for the temperature to drop to negative, it is still common for locals to wear long coats to keep warm, especially when strolling around the city during the night. When you're planning to visit the city during this season, then prepare to pack extra layers of clothing to ensure maximum comfort during your stay.

Spring

Spring in Brussels is absolutely stunning. If you're visiting in springtime, make sure to go for a walk around the city and see all the beautiful flowers in the most comfortable way possible. Although blue skies and warmer temperatures are to be expected, know that it will still be chilly even during the day. For women, embrace the joy of spring by wearing a maxi dress that you can pair with a cardigan and a wedge or any shoes that will keep you comfortable while walking in the city's cobbled streets. When in doubt, you can opt for jeans as a base for any ensemble since these are commonly worn in Brussels. Jeans are gender-neutral and versatile as they can be easily paired with any tops, jackets, or cardigans. For kids, wearing cheerful prints offers added fun while exploring the city in springtime.

Summer

Summer in Brussels offers a plethora of opportunities for fun and excitement. Blend in with the locals by wearing dresses, trousers, shorts, or skirts when going to festivals or anywhere in the city. When you're out and about, you will see mostly blue skies and feel the warmth during the day but expect the temperatures to drop at night. If you're planning to visit Brussels in the summer, it is still highly recommended to bring layers of clothing as you will most definitely enjoy the city's summer festivities after dark. To walk the streets of Brussels in style, consider wearing a beret to complete your fashion ensemble and embrace the vibe of the city.

Fall

Visiting Brussels during the fall season is always a good idea. It is when you can start enjoying your Belgian chocolates even more as it would take more time for them to melt because of the cooler weather. When traveling to Brussels during fall, make sure to pack those long sleeves, layers, sweaters, and a couple of jackets. The season also comes with increasing amounts of rainfall, so make sure to opt for weatherproof clothing as much as possible.
