A while back Expedia contacted me and asked the question what do I pack in my hand luggage when Im travelling. In a few weeks Im off to Glasgow for the weekend with nothing but a small carry-on bag to fit all my clothes in. (Much to my dismay!) Packing light is something Ive become accustom to and it gave me the idea to create the perfect capsule winter wardrobe. In my opinion there are certain key items that will get you through this winter looking stylish without needing a whole new wardrobe or a very large suitcase.
A Pinafore: Ive seen these cute little dresses everywhere this year, they were perfect in the summer teamed with a cropped tee underneath. But they work just as well in winter, you can layer shirts & polo necks under them and chunky knit cardigans over the top. Each time creating a different look!
A Saddle Bag: Another must have this season, ever since the Chloe Drew saddle bag was released every high street retailer has come out with their own dupe version. Pack away our totes and clutch bags, the saddle bag is the only one you’ll need.
A pair of boots: Always a necessity in winter, my favourite will always be ankle boots. Tuck your skinny jeans into them or wear with tights & a denim skirt. Easy Peasey!
A Funnel Neck: Basically a fancy polo neck, I fought this trend when it first appeared but Im coming round to how chic they look when paired with a pinafore or pair of skinny jeans.
What are your key pieces this winter?
