Is travel the next thing on your radar? While the idea of scoring a few days off and jet setting is exciting, it’s equally important to put enough thought before making those sartorial choices – and be comfortable while travelling in the thick of the sweater weather. That said, here’s a lowdown of a couple of fail-safe pointers to keep in mind before decking up for a cozy winter travel.
First things first, covering yourself up in shoddy mufflers and granny knits are passé. It’s the era of layering – and with good reasons. The key to perfecting the winter travel look is to choose appropriate outerwear. Break away from the style rut and settle for tailored coats. They’re statement making and functional. And the biggest pluses: They pretty much can be worn over everything! The next in line are leather
bomber jackets, pelt jackets and lightweight trench coats in bold and vivid hues. These can be worn in the day and carried through the night. As a rule of thumb, no matter what you wear, always remember to match the shade of your footwear to your coat.
Making way for the new: Admittedly, the good ol’ pyjamas are the kind of stuff we’d always be stubbornly loyal to. That said, there’s no denying about the possibility of instances where these uber comfy go-tos may seem a little out of place. On those days, it’s the best bet to swap Pyjamas for their snazzier cousins – yes, we’re talking about airy palazzos that scream chic and are comfortable enough to be worn to bed. However, if you’re heading to a locale surrounded by snow capped mountains, fleece pants are strongly recommended.
Get snazzy with the right accoutrements: Going the minimalistic way might seem like a wiser option, but the idea doesn’t necessarily translate to looking drab and dreary. Roll over a pashmina in a bold colour to jazz up otherwise plain attire in a jiffy! Even oversized scarves are quite effective at doing the job of covering up while lending a streak of panache to the
Overall outfit. Don’t forget the shades and the spf. And no matter what, a oversized brimmed hat will always come in handy. Comfort is a factor you must not overlook whatever the season, winter travelling calls for the dire need of comfortable footwear too. So pick peep toe boots, ankle length boots with faux laces, sneakers (preferably spiked trainers with heels) or Oxfords to snag it up!
