You must approach packing for holiday travel with the same precision as you would putting together the perfect ensemble. This may sound a bit extreme, but you don't want to overpack or worse yet, underpack.
To ensure you're only bringing the most important items with you during your holiday travel, we're breaking down our travel packing guide. Keep in mind, everyone heads somewhere different for the holidays—some may head to a cold location, while others celebrate the holiday in a warm destination. We're showcasing what to pack whether you're heading somewhere cool or warm.
Keep scrolling for our Holiday Packing Tips, where we feature the fashion items you won't regret packing!
1. A Warm Coat
2. Cozy Gloves
You'll probably wear jeans most of the time, so we suggest going for a classic style that's sophisticated enough to be dressed up. We love the Parla Stretch Jean by Cambio
A holiday party dress is key. If you don't want a flashy silhouette, try something in a festive fabric like velvet. We love the Black Velvet Dress by Luisa Cerano
7. Ankle Boots
It's no secret that boots are a "must have" for cold-weather travel. We suggest a sleek silhouette that can be dressed up or down. We love the Suede Ankle Boot With Heel by AGL
When you're not wearing boots, we suggest you pack a chic pair of flats that can be worn with your classic jeans and everyday sweater. We love the Gara by Thierry Rabotin
9. A Large Tote
When traveling, we find it most convenient to choose a large handbag that will hold all your travel needs. We love the Surprise Shopper Handbag by Tissa Fontaneda.
Even though you're going somewhere warm, we recommend packing a lighter jacket, so you're prepared for every kind of weather! We suggest something that's not too stiff, so you're comfortable while in a car or on a plane. We love the Swing Coat by Kinross Cashmere
Jeans are not only a travel day staple, but they're ideal if your plans are low key. We love the Pina Jean With Chain Print Cuff by Cambio
3. Easy T-Shirt
A t-shirt is an essential that you CAN'T forget to pack! You can pair it with your jeans for a comfortable, yet classic look. We love the Cashmere Tee from Majestic Filatures
A holiday party dress is key. If you're partying in a warm climate, we recommend a lightweight, flowing dress. A flowing silhouette is comfortable, yet party appropriate. We love the Double-Wool Shift Dress by Luisa Cerano
When you're on the go this holiday season, don't forget to pack a lightweight scarf. This is an easy way to add a chic layer of warmth. We love the Solid Pleated Edge Oblong Scarf by Echo
For a long day of travel or causal holiday plans, we suggest packing a trendy sneaker that will provide you with comfort and style. We love the chicness of the Youka Slip On Sneaker by VANELi
Packing a multi-purpose sandal is a MUST. Make sure you pack something that can be dressed up or down- eliminating unnecessary luggage weight. We love the Bali Scalloped Sandal is Patricia Green
