These 9 Winter Getaways Are Officially It Girl–Approved

What's on your travel bucket list? If you're anything like me, you might have a hard time narrowing down all the places you want to see—one week, I'm dying to go to Japan, and the next I'm all about Switzerland. Well, it never hurts to get a second opinion on your next travel destination, so I scoured Instagram to find out where It girls are traveling right now, hoping they'll steer me in the right direction.

While Aimee Song will renew your interest in Tokyo, Caro Daur and Camila Coelho will have you laser-focused on traveling to London and Cartagena, respectively. Palm Springs, Bali, Tulum, Marrakesh, and Stockholm also made the list, thanks to stamps of approval from editors, bloggers, designers, and more. Scroll down to see nine winter getaways approved by It girls and shop the pieces you need for your next trip. Bon voyage!

Aman Tokyo

Although all of the Aman properties are beautiful, the Tokyo location sparked my interest after I spotted Aimee Song there earlier this month. Aside from a very Instagrammable Japanese breakfast (best eaten in silk pajamas à la Song), the hotel boasts a stunning spa and world-class restaurants.

Como Shambhala Estate, Bali

Also a favorite of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, the Como Shambhala Estate might be the most beautiful resort in all of Bali. Touting itself as a "retreat for change," the resort offers an Ayurvedic doctor, resident dietitian, yoga teachers, massage therapists, and more. Pack your best bikini and sarong, as the weather hovers in the 80s during February.

Troutbeck, New York

Located in Amenia, New York, Troutbeck is arguably the best country escape from NYC. I first learned about the estate when Eva Chen went there last summer, and plenty of It girls have also taken notice recently. I dare you to be stressed in this impossibly idyllic spot.

The Franklin London–Starhotels Collezione

Located in covetable Knightsbridge, The Franklin London plays host to plenty of London Fashion Week editors and bloggers, including Caro Daur. For London's chilly winter, copy Daur's blazer dress and add some extra-warm tights and an oversize coat, and you're in business.

Hotel Tcherassi, Cartagena

It should come as no surprise that Silvia Tcherassi's beautifully designed brand would translate to a flawless hotel experience. Camila Coelho offered her seven million followers glimpses of the designer's two different hotels: Mansión Tcherassi and Hotel Tcherassi + Spa (located within walking distance of each other). The former is housed in a restored 18th-century colonial mansion while the latter has a rooftop pool you have to see.

Sparrows Lodge, Palm Springs

The hotel options in Palm Springs might seem overwhelming, but the quaint and stylish Sparrows Lodge is pretty much a sure bet. For maximum relaxation, skip Coachella dates and book the room during winter months to save yourself from scorching temperatures later in the year. Rixo dresses encouraged but not required.

Hotel Esencia, Tulum

I haven't been to Tulum yet, but I have my eye on Hotel Esencia thanks to celebrity stylist and designer Anita Patrickson. The insanely picturesque resort sits on prime beachfront real estate, and the staff can arrange day trips to Chichen Itza, the Mayan ruins, and other spots. As for what to pack, Patrickson's custom sandals brand Amanu studio is a no-brainer.

Amanjena, Marrakesh

Is there any doubt that Amanjena is Marrakesh's most Instagrammable hotel? But more than just a pretty location, the resort goes to great lengths to ensure everyone has a memorable experience—so you'll leave with a lot more than just some cool photos.

Ett Hem, Stockholm

Located on a quiet residential street, Ett Hem is impeccably decorated and regularly hosts Scandinavian's coolest girls for events. With only 12 rooms, you're guaranteed to get personal attention from the dedicated staffers. Be sure to pack the chicest Swedish brands for your trip.
