Fashion Essentials for Cold-Weather Travel

Do you have a passion for traveling? Even if the cold seasons are here, you can still explore the world without worrying about your style – and your warmth. Here are some fashion essentials that can keep you modishly nippy in your travails – wherever they might be.


This is perhaps the most important item in your fashion arsenal. Pick a neutrally-shaded sweater for your excursion. This will help you mix and match your wardrobe for several looks – even with limited pieces.


Button-down Shirt

Keep your top half warm and trendy by bringing a button-down shirt. You can put this underneath your outerwear or over it – it doesn’t matter. Plus, it’s a great piece for ‘more formal’ occasions.

Keeping warm doesn’t have to be bulky, as long as you have got leggings in tow. You can wear them under your pants – or under your dress, if ever you feel girly.


Dark Wash Denims

Dark wash denims can transform any look, whatever the season might be. For best results, bring a ‘good’ one (not your distressed or ripped denims) so you can wear this from day to night.

Gabardine Pants

If you want a formal look without feeling too cold, then make sure to bring a pair of gabardine pants. After all, they are as stylish as they are insulating.

Down Jacket

If you are expecting weather fluctuations to your destination, then include a down jacket in your travel gear. It might not be as stylish as you wish they would be, but with the right styling, you can pull it off!

Wool Dress

A dress is an indispensable part of any wardrobe. So for your cold weather travel, don’t forget to bring a wool dress. Although it might not be as flirty as your summer dresses, a wool dress can make you look stunning – minus the frostbite.

Your head needs protection as well, so make it a point to bring a beanie. Choose a neutrally-colored one so you can wear it well with your wardrobe, even if it comes in different shades and prints.



Keep your hands warm and stylish by toting a good pair of gloves. A black or brown leather glove is perfect, since it can keep your hands warm and wonderful-looking.



When it comes to cold-weather travel, you are best off with a chic pair of boots. Whether it’s flat or wedge, mid-ankle or above the knee, what’s important is it should be waterproof!
