One of the best parts of each season is the weather-related trips planned around them—from beach vacations in the warmer months to snowy ski resorts during the winter. While the current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our ability to travel in many ways, there are still a few getaway options we can take advantage of this year. One of the options many of us have been utilizing is the cabin trip: getting a little change of scenery while spending most of the time outdoors.
While packing for a cabin trip may seem difficult (between the weather forecast and the activity schedule), it actually only requires a few key items to ensure you're prepared for a cozy, relaxing getaway. From puffer vests to chunky boots to sweat sets, below are 12 cute cabin outfit ideas that each include a key item to add to your weekender bag. Depending on your agenda, you may need to add a few other items, but using this list as a general starting point will have you pretty safely covered.
On Anouk Yve: Totême Menfi Shearling Jacket ($2250)
A shearling jacket is one of those pieces you'll wear year after year—it's virtually trend-proof. It never goes out of style, always looks chic, and keeps you warm even in particularly chilly conditions. These factors make this cozy style perfect for a cabin trip.
On Aimee Song: white baseball hat
Between wind, rain, and snow, protecting your hair is a priority during a weekend in the woods. A baseball hat does that job, plus it looks sporty and chic at the same time.
Nothing says cabin trip like sipping some hot chocolate by the fire in your coziest outfit. Pajamas are fine, but a matching sweat set feels equally comfortable but much more put together for lounging.
On Claire Most: beige sneakers
Footwear can be tricky during the winter, especially when heading for the woods. Sneakers are a safe bet for most activities, so they're definitely an item you'll want in your suitcase. Plus they look good paired with virtually every outfit you pack so putting looks together won't be an issue.
On Imani Randolph: Acne Studios sweater, Anna Sui skirt, Nike sneakers
A chunky sweater is a winter staple, so adding it to a cabin wardrobe is a no-brainer. Throw it over a dress, with leggings, under a puffer jacket—literally, pair it with anything in your suitcase and your outfit is set.
On Olivia Perez: Urban Outfitters pants
A cabin trip mantra is "cozy outfits only," so soft fabrics are welcome in all forms. Comfy pants are especially welcome as the fabric tends to be warmer and more flexible for activities.
A flannel is to a cabin what a swimsuit is to a beach: an essential. It's the ultimate layering piece and keeps you as comfortable as can be. It also pairs well with denim, leggings, and sweats, so think of it as the building block to every outfit.
On Aemilia Madden: North Face jacket, Chanel bag, Nike Leggings ($90)
Leggings are one of the most versatile clothing items and almost always deserve a spot in your suitcase, but especially when heading to the mountains. Between hiking, exploring, lounging, and traveling, you'll find yourself reaching for them over and over again.
