Thin layers are always best for Switzerland regardless of time of year. That way you can pile on (or off) the layers as the weather changes from day to day -- and sometimes within the same day! Best materials are the new moisture-wicking, fast-drying types. We bring T-shirts, long sleeved top, vest, a long sleeved fleece garment if you are planning to visit the high peaks (such as Jungfraujoch), a wind shirt, and always a rain jacket with a hood. We usually wear hiking pants with zip off bottoms that can convert to shorts. If you are planning to visit Jungfraujoch you may also want gloves.
Hiking boots/shoes are accepted footwear even in the fancy restaurants!
