February weather is pretty much like January’s, just with more sunshine. The average daytime temperatures remain as they were i.e. 18 degrees Celsius dropping down to 8 degrees Celsius after sunset. That isn’t too cold going by the European standards but you never know how cold it gets, sometimes! The sun shines for an average of 8 hours per day and they amount of rainfall decreases too. However, the sea temperature remains 14 degrees Celsius which means it is not a wise idea to go for a swim.
What to Wear and How to Pack for Los Angeles in February?
The winters are rather mild in LA but you will still need an overcoat on certain days. Here are some suggestions:
Women – It’s best to stick to dark colors like shades of black, grey and tan. Dark denims are worn by almost everyone in months like January and February. A warm, preferably black, slack would help you almost everywhere; accompanying it with a leather jacket and a cardigan would complete the look. For formal settings, go for blazers and warm jumpers. You might need a heavy overcoat, but carry a light coat.
Men – You can contrast light and dark colors with each other. Taking a formal button-down shirts and a warm trouser will always make you fit in almost every formal setting. Don’t forget your leather jacket, though. Stick to dark jeans and trousers. During afternoons, you can go for a warm pullover, a button down shirt and a pair of chinos. You might need an overcoat during evenings though.
Kids – Clothing formula would be nearly the same for kids. Girls can go for warm jumpers or rompers during the day and pair them with a blazer or a jacket. Warm leggings and tunics also work well and can be layered with a cardigan. Jeans and hoodies are quite casual and can be worn during the daytime. In general, stick to jeans, trousers, slacks and warm tops.
Footwear – You might not find soggy or blistery feet any fun and it would be rather ‘uncool’ to roam around the city in uncomfortable feet. So do pack a pair of comfy shoes. Boots and wellingtons work best for winters.
Accessories – Add some color to your dull and dark outfits with some bold and colorful scarves and bags. Throw in a pair of sunglasses too.
