Cold-Weather Fashion Travel Essentials Checklist

Baby, it's cold outside! Taking a vacation in a winter wonderland? Here's the stylish gear you'll need.

  • Sweaters. A chunky cable-knit crewneck for daytime, plus a cardigan and turtleneck in cashmere or thin wool for day or evening. (Pick one neutral color palette, such as blacks/grays or browns/tans, and stick with it so everything can be mixed and matched.)
  • White tailored dress shirt. Can be worn over the turtleneck or on its own. To avoid wrinkling, pack it on a hanger covered with dry cleaner’s plastic.
  • A dress, jacket, and pants in the same color and fabric, such as wool crepe or gabardine. So many combination possibilities! For a polished look at dinner, pair the dress with the jacket or cardigan, the pants with the jacket or turtleneck, etc.
