What to Wear While Traveling to a Completely Different Climate
If you’ve ever departed a city in below-freezing temps, only to arrive at your tropical climate destination a few hours later wearing a parka and snow boots, we feel your pain. So much so that we decided to share with you a few tricks to make the climate transition a little more seamless when jet-setting. From what to pack in your carry-on to what to wear on your travel day, keep scrolling for our best tips and to shop the pieces that will help you achieve travel-day outfit success!
A lightweight yet warm jacket you can stow in your carry-on until needed is a lifesaver when arriving in or departing from a chilly climate. You can’t go wrong with a puffy jacket or a trench for this occasion, depending on how cold it is.
Visiting Hawaii in February? Throw a pair of sandals or ballet flats in your bag, à la Kate Bosworth. Traveling to Iceland in July? Pack a pair of easily accessible ankle boots to throw on. It’ll make all the difference.
A pair of thick black tights will be your saving grace. You can easily take them off on the plane or put them on in the airport bathroom to instantly make your outfit seasonally appropriate.
A scarf, hat, and gloves will provide instant warmth, even if you’re just wearing jeans, a tee, and a cardigan when departing a warm city.
The beauty of a vest is that it can serve as an extra layer of warmth or just a flattering outfit-completer if you’re not in need of warmth. Tip: Wear a tee and pack a sweater in your carry-on to layer under the vest if needed.
