Having to sit on your suitcase to zip it can be an indicator that you’re not the most efficient of packers. If you’re trying to pack light for your holiday travels, versatility is key. The more uses you can get out of the items you pack, the lighter your load.
If you’re staying with relatives this holiday season, you may not have control of the thermostat. A cozy cashmere wrap such as this Svetlana cashmere bouclé wrap will keep you warm during winter travels and right into spring.
A Comfy Flat
Our POPPYSP kid suede flats, with their luxe texture and delicate jeweled details, add a touch of shine to your holiday looks.
A Beautiful Scarf
This Goa infinity scarf from Anthropologie is great for dressing up casual outfits, plus it offers a way to disguise an outfit you’ve recycled due to packing constraints.
An All-Terrain Bootie
Whether it’s snowball fights in the front yard or trudging through snowy store parking lots, our wear-everywhere RANI oily suede booties have you covered.
A Little Black Dress
We love an LBD with pockets. And this Tahari A-line dress has charm to spare. It can be worn with casual shoes during the day and then dressed up with pretty accessories for night.
A Dressy Pump
Our PHILLO metallic leopard pumps are the perfect combination of dressy and cool. They go just as beautifully with black slacks and a velvet blazer as they do with a festive party skirt.
Making a list in the weeks leading up to your departure date is always helpful. Because forgetting your phone as you jet out the door for work is one thing, but for your entire vacation—eek! Make sure it’s at the top of your checklist (next to tickets and ID). One surefire way to make sure you remember it (and that it’s fully charged) is to plug it into an electrical outlet and then put the phone in your purse. It’s also a good idea to throw in some sunglasses, headphones for watching a movie on the plane (or drowning out the noise in the car!) and antibacterial wipes.
