Being out of town for so long with limited access to a washer doesn’t mean that you’ll be in a style pinch! If you’re headed on month-long European winter getaway, there are a few essentials that you’ll want to make sure you have in your suitcase.
Here’s what to pack for a Europe trip in the winter.
A staple for any fall wardrobe, your favorite sweaters will also be a major part of your seasonal wardrobe while on vacation. Layer your chunky knits over a long-sleeved tee so you can peel off the warmer layer if you get overheated from walking.
Lightweight Coats and Jackets
Combat the winter chill (and possible snow) with a coat that will layer nicely over every ensemble in your suitcase. Opt for a puffer coat or anorak jacket that’s waterproof, so you can still sightsee on drizzly days.
Stylist tip: If you’re headed out on a long trip and want to pack less and wash more, bring along a Ziploc baggie of laundry detergent. Pour it into the tub or sink when you’re ready to wash your duds!
Jeans & Leggings
Opt for some fleece leggings to keep comfortable and cozy, and colored corduroy denim to make a statement with textures. Bonus tip: your favorite jeans and leggings can be worn 3-5 times without needing a wash, allowing maximum usage and freeing space in your suitcase.
Fashion sneakers will keep you comfortable and on-trend with all the walking you’ll be doing. Also bring along some boots for those cooler days—don’t forget your warmest socks for pairing with these options!
Cross-body bags are easy to travel with, and the backpack look is making a comeback. Carry a cross-body book bag for an option that’s fun and functional.
