What To Pack For A Winter Break

Let’s be honest, packing is a stressful precursor to any trip away. It can have you tying yourself in knots as you try to cover all eventualities, overpacking unnecessarily and ending up with a very heavy suitcase and a holiday wardrobe that’s neither coherent nor enjoyable to wear. But it needn’t be this way – packing smart shouldn’t be hard. Read on for three edits to get you started, whether you’re heading to the countryside, hitting the slopes or doing a city break.

No winter break is complete without a bracing walk or two deep in the countryside. Layer up with cosy pieces that you’ll return to every winter, like quality knitwear, practical boots and wear-forever accessories. Make sure your weekend bag includes a good book for rainy afternoons and beauty products that deliver a boost of hydration to counteract the cold air.
If you’ll be hitting the slopes this winter, we’ve got your ski capsule sorted. Think technical skiwear, cosy layers and beauty products that’ll help you fight the chill – and don’t forget the perfect après-ski loungewear, too (in cashmere, of course). Lastly, travel in your thickest coat and snow-boots if luggage space is an issue.
