Heading home for the holidays, or jetting off to some tropical paradise during the holiday break? We’ve made your holiday packing checklist for you with all the travel essentials you need to stay fashionably cozy round-trip.

 

Tips for Comfortable Holiday Traveling

 

  1. Pile on the style: One minute, it’s stuffy. The next, you’re shivering. Dress accordingly with a series of light layers that you can remove as needed. Start with a basic cotton tee, add a button-down shirt, and then top off the look with an oversized coatigan or cardi.

  2. Treat your feet: Slip-on shoes, warm socks, and UGG boots are first-class footwear options for holiday travels.

  3. Bundle up: A blanket scarf works overtime by doubling as a super-soft blanket or a warm scarf on demand.

  4. Ditch your jacket: Hate the idea of wearing a bulky parka on the plane? Opt for an oversized cardigan or coatigan instead.

  5. Pamper yourself: Air travel is known to do a number on the skin, and that dry cabin air isn’t doing your complexion any favors. Fight off the effects by bringing along beauty treats like lip balm, face masks, moisturizer, hydrating face mists, and hand cream.

  6. Kick back and relax: An all-in-one travel set with an eye mask and a pillow is a dreamy way to turn lengthy flights into restful nights.

 

Heading home for the holidays, or jetting off to some tropical paradise during the holiday break? We’ve compiled the ultimate winter travel style guide to help you look and feel your best from takeoff to touchdown.

 

What to Wear

 

 

Holiday traveling is stressful, but choosing the right travel outfits doesn’t have to be. The key to staying comfortable while traveling without sacrificing style is keeping things in proportion. Pair slouchy knits and oversized sweaters with slim bottoms like leggings, jeans, or cuffed joggers. This visual balance prevents off-duty combinations from looking sloppy, and it’s figure-flattering for the best of both worlds.

 

Focus on soft fabrics, relaxed silhouettes, lightweight layers, and functional accessories that keep everything you need right at your fingertips. Mix and match the following pieces to build outfits long flights demand:

 

  • Tops: Pullover sweaters, t-shirts, tunics, button-down blouses, and turtlenecks

  • Bottoms: Joggers, jeans, and leggings

  • Outerwear: Light jackets, hoodies, ponchos, wraps, cardigans, and coatigans

  • Bags: Weekenders, crossbody bags, totes, and backpacks

  • Accessories: Blanket scarves, hair ties, and beanies

  • Shoes: Ankle boots, flats, sneakers, UGGs, loafers, and mules

Looking for a perfect gift for someone special? We’ve got you covered with stylish holiday gifts for all your favorite ladies (and even a few to keep all to yourself).

 

Gifts for Your Sister

 

What sibling rivalry, right? Your sister is your BFF for life, so treat her to holiday gifts that you know she’ll adore. Buy her that bomber jacket she’s been eyeing, tuck a gift card into a patchwork clutch, or give her a pair of 24K gold-plated hoops for elevated jewelry she’ll wear on the regular.

 

Gifts for Your Mom

 

She’s your biggest fan (and she gave you the gift of life), so give her a gift that keeps on giving. A slouchy carryall bag keeps everything she needs close at hand, a cozy cardigan is like a daily hug, and a pair of sparkly studs puts her in the spotlight — right where she belongs.

 

Gifts for Your Friends

 

Keep your gals looking pretty in pink with blushing accessories they’ll wear time and time again, or give them high-shine jewelry that demands a night out on the town.

 

Gifts for the Stocking

 

You know what they say: The best things come in small packages. Stuff their stockings with tiny but mighty holiday gifts like pompom slippers, dainty earrings, and cold weather essentials.

Gifts for You

 

You’ve been a good girl all year long, so make sure Santa brings you what you want most by shopping for it yourself. Whether it’s a fluffy faux-fur stole, an embellished bag, or a statement necklace that’s made to turn heads, the best gift of the season is the one you give yourself.

Fall has officially arrived with gorgeous autumn hues, pumpkin-flavored everything, and plenty of opportunities to pile on the style. We’re bundling up for the season ahead with our favorite layering pieces, from structured jackets and cozy sweaters to statement-making accessories. In need of a little wardrobe inspiration? Check out the layered looks we’re “falling” for now.

 

Boyish Charm

jacket, blouse, scarf, hat

 

Instantly transition your summertime tops and tees to your fall rotation with the help of a cropped military jacket. This versatile must-have works just as well with feminine blouses, dresses, and skirts as it does with casual knits and joggers. Top it off with a colorful scarf, or add a two-tone wool baseball cap for a borrowed-from-the-boys look and feel.

 

Indigo Glamour

jacket, earrings, sweater, jeans

 

Fall may be known for its signature color palette, but that doesn’t mean you have to limit your outerwear to neutrals and earth tones. Take a quilted blue bomber anywhere (and everywhere) with basic tees and lightly distressed denim in skinny silhouettes. Gold starburst earrings add a playful touch of luxe, while LBDs prove once and for all that blue and black are a match made in heaven.

 

Dancer Off-Duty

jacket, necklace, sweater, hat

 

Prima ballerina meets black swan with this cool-girl combination. Soft pastel hues get a seriously edgy makeover thanks to black leather leggings and moto jackets. Our women’s scarves, pompom beanies and cold-weather accessories fend off the elements in style, while dazzling jewelry and ruffled hems keep the overall look flirty and feminine.

 

Rustic Casual

jacket, gilet, shirt, earrings

Effortlessly upgrade your everyday style with unexpected textures and intricate details. Cold-shoulder tops and off-the-shoulder sweaters show the slightest hint of skin to keep you looking cool and feeling warm. Snuggle up in a tie-waist vest with striped details for just the right amount of rustic charm, or keep it casual with an all-American denim jacket with a cropped fit and frayed hem instead. Add leather-detailed gold earrings for an eclectic accent that’s fresh and modern, and finish the look with burgundy ankle boots or classic UGGs.
