In a few short days I’ll be typing these posts from 30,000 feet in the air, wondering if my trusty leather-trimmed Samsonite suitcase is housing anything warm enough to possibly survive the cold snap currently sweeping Europe and the US. Coming from a mild, albeit unpredictable, climate the odds are the answer will be ‘no’. But isn’t that just a great excuse to head out on some shopping missions when we land? If anything the biggest question for me is how to stay both warm and unwaveringly stylish, being that I only even encounter snow and sub-zero temperatures when I travel, never at home.
Theory number 1: pack some fur (real or faux). Classic, stylish, glamorous – and cosy. Theory number 2: accessories are, as I always say, key. When you have a limited amount of packing space a few items can turn into a great many outfits by way of interchangeable accessories.
More ideas for how to pack for the freezing cold weather? I’ll share mine as I do my packing over the coming week – but do feel free to add your own in the comments below.
