1. Weatherproof Boots
Chic warm and waterproof footwear is a must for your winter getaway. There’s nothing worse than cold (or wet) feet! A neutral color like tan or black will go with everything else you bring.
We’re based in sunny LA, so gloves are not a regular item in our wardrobe. Make sure to pack a pair for your winter getaway to keep your digits warm for all of that Instagram posting you’ll be doing!
Layers are a must for winter travel! You’ll likely be going from freezing outdoor temperatures to warm cuddling by the fireplace, so make sure you’re prepared for every climate. We love packing a neutral turtleneck that we can layer under everything else in our suitcase.
4. A Versatile Coat
One of the biggest challenges of winter traveling is fitting all of your clothes in a carryon suitcase. Try bringing 1 versatile coat instead of packing a different piece of outerwear for every outfit! We love a camel peacoat or an extra warm white puffer jacket.
We’re talking every kind of moisturizer here – Face, body, lips, you name it! Winter weather can dry out your skin and it’s better to be safe than sorry.
6. A Cozy Scarf
Scarves are more than just a fun fall fashion accessory! They’re a must-pack for your winter getaway. They trap warmth and are basically just a wearable blanket. What else could you ask for!?
