Where will you be spending the winter holidays this year? Whether you’re escaping the cold for sunnier climes or opting for a traditional white holiday, we have all your travel fashion need-to-knows covered.
A Winter Wonderland
Choosing your wardrobe for colder climates can be just as much fun as picking out bikinis and sun hats. Instead, we indulge in ultra cosy coats and a pair of warm boots – or two!
If you’re in search of the perennial parka, Joseph’s rabbit fur coat has just made the top of our wish list; luxurious, versatile and offering the ultimate in warmth and style, this parka ticks all the boxes.
Beanie hats are back, and better than ever. Take our style cue and choose a statement pattern to really stand out on the slopes. Coordinate your hat with statement knitwear for an effortlessly harmonised look.
TOP TIP: Instead of trying to cram all your huge winter woollies into one case, why not try layering instead? By wearing several lighter layers at once you’ll trap heat, leaving more space in your suitcase for all of your holiday shopping!
A Glamorous Getaway
Are you shaking off the dreaded winter blues by booking yourself a one way ticket to paradise?
Be the envy of your friends as you jet set off on an elegant getaway, with a suitcase full of Victoria Beckham, Maha Lozi and Alaia. It’s time to swap your scarves and knitwear for heels, jewellery and a beautiful Alessandra Rich evening dress for all the glitzy and festive affairs you’ll be attending.
TOP TIP: It can be tempting to leave your winter clothes behind, but many destinations are cool in winter, so be sure to pack light outerwear for the brisker evening temperatures.
The Luxe Nomad
Ditch the rushing around and last minute shopping lists, spread your wings and escape to a far away island.
Soar into the SS14 fashion trends on an early flight with next season’s statement pieces; shirt dresses and bold sweats. Update your holiday wardrobe with key items by styling them in fresh new ways. Why not try wearing your T by Alexander Wang shirt dress open over your bikini to reveal a Lisa Marie Fernandez bikini.
For a more relaxed feel during the cooler evenings, try Mary Katrantzou’s print sweater for size. A sure way to fight off any winter blues.
TOP TIP: To take full advantage of the carefree lifestyle of a backpacker, take only multi-functional pieces that can be mixed and matched to create several outfits.
