Winter travel is a unique event when heading to cold destinations like New York. Whether you plan to explore New York City or visit a ski resort, there’s no need to pack extra luggage for your bulky winter clothes.
Traveling light for cold weather is simple when you follow the advice we’ve gathered from experienced travelers who know how to pack to stay warm, stylish, and comfortable.
The Trick to Packing Light
Dressing in layers is the trick for cold-weather destinations. Bulky clothing is not necessary to keep warm. Layers of thin clothing retain more heat than one thick layer. Remove a layer when you feel too hot or add a layer when chilly.
The versatility of layering allows you to dress appropriately for any circumstance you encounter during travel. Pack less bulk yet have more outfit combinations when you pack layers. Here are our suggestions on what clothing to pack for your next winter trip.
Long-sleeve shirts/undershirts in thin silk or thermal fabrics take up little room, look nice, and add an abundance of warmth.
Pack thin wool or cashmere knit sweaters and cardigans. Slip a cardigan over a sweater to restyle an outfit and provide better body temperature control. In the space three large sweaters take up, you can pack six or more thin versions.
Thin undergarments are an often forgotten packing essential for cold destinations. Silk thermals or cotton leggings are incredibly lightweight but retain heat and cut cold winds. Leggings can also be worn alone under a long sweater.
Pack jeans and woolen or corduroy pants in neutral tones to help stop the chill. They are easy to slip over thermal undergarments in colder conditions.
Modern materials keep winter outerwear sleek without skimping on warmth. Take thin jackets instead of one thick, bulky coat.
The latest cold-weather footgear combines amazing styling with practical protection from water, cold and snow. A chic all-around boot/bootie in brown or black are wearable anywhere.
Thin scarves, socks, hats, and gloves in wool will keep you extra protected. Larger scarves work as a wrap/shawl to add additional wardrobe flair.
