We almost always find ourselves traveling during the American summer, which means we often end up on the other side of the world during their winter. Packing for a long trip that also happens to take place during winter is so hard. I often rely on many, many layers of clothing to keep warm. Here are a few of my favorite packing tips for layering! 1. Open Front Cardigans- My favorite open front cardigan is actually on sale at Nordstrom right now. This MOD.lusive by Bobeau cardigan is the BEST for layering. They are light-weight but warm, which means you can easily take them off or add them on depending on the daily temperature. They come in a bunch of colors and patterns, which means you look cute each day and each cardigan allows for a totally separate "look."
2. Quilted Jacket- The quilted jacket is one of my favorite travel accessories. It's light weight enough to carry easily, but keeps you warm (day OR night) when it gets cold. I love the Burberry Brit jacket for a high end option or this Calvin Klein jacket for a less expensive choice.
3. Gloves and Scarves- Both of these items take up very little space in a suit case, but can make a huge impact in keeping you warm if you are outside for a significant amount of time. I love the North Face e-tip gloves that allow you to use your cell phone while wearing them. A colorful scarf (stripes, leopard, etc.) also gives your outfit a little pizzaz, which can be lacking if you find yourself wearing a coat every day.
