The majority of people believe that it is best to have trips during the summer, but the truth is that there is a lot to see during the winter as well. You could be thinking about a ski trip to the mountains or about a trip to Europe. Regardless of what you choose, there are some items that you have to take with you.

Winter Vacation 2013 and How to Pack Smartly for It

Invest in a High Quality Jacket

No matter where you go during the winter, most probably it will be cold, so you have to make sure that you have a high quality jacket that will keep you warm. One of the best options is getting a down coat. It is best to opt for a long coat with a hood and cuffed sleeves.


Regardless of your destination, you should have at least two pairs of shoes: one on your feet and another pair in the bag. Think about taking a pair of flats and a pair of ankle boots. You can go to fancy places in the flats and you can explore the city in your boots.


It is important to have long johns and long sleeved vests. If you are looking for warmth, you should consider those made of hi-tech materials. These are warmer and dry faster than the ones made of silky materials. Again, buy the highest quality you can afford.

Long Sleeved Tops

The best you can find are the cashmere jumpers. Although not everybody can afford them, they are asound investment. If you go to Europe, you can find them at lower prices. If you don’t have the budget for it, go for the high tech fabrics that will keep you just as warm offering you a nice sporty look.

Blouses and T-shirts

If you don’t want to bring too many things, you should make sure that you have three blouses or T-shirts. These should be enough for a short trip and don’t forget that you can always wash them. Their advantage is that they will keep the outer tops fresh for a longer time.


Girls should always have a skirt with them for fancy events and in this case it is important to have a pair of thick stockings as well. Besides this, also pack two pairs of black pants that make it possible for you to tuck the long johns under them for added warmth.
