FashionThis Warm-Weather Capsule Wardrobe is About to Simplify Your Packing List

what to wear in warm climates during the winter

Traveling somewhere warm this holiday season? You’ll need to pack accordingly. Whether you’re heading home to see family or you’re lucky enough to be taking a much-needed vacation, a great trip begins with a strategically stocked suitcase. Because stressing about what to bring with you is just so unnecessary — you’ve got enough on your mind this time of year.

We’re firm believers in always looking — and feeling — your best, so of course, a babe’s gotta have options. But there’s only so much room in your luggage and only so much time to wear it all. Plus, over-packing can actually make you more confused: too many choices can be overwhelming and actually make it harder to put together an outfit. Holidays and vacations are meant for spending quality time with your people, enjoying yourself, and relaxing. With a carefully crafted resort capsule wardrobe, you’ll have your outfits all planned out — so you can get dressed, look great, and get back to actually living your life.

Fashion3 Ways to Wear: Chunky Boots

grunge outfit with combat boots

Welcome to the season of the chunky boot. From combat boots, to lug sole ankle boots, to pretty much any other iteration of the tough lace-up boot, footwear for fall has definitely taken an edgy cool-girl turn.

The bulky boots of fall are edgy for sure, but how exactly does one wear them without going full-on biker babe or soldier style (unless you’re aiming for either of those looks, of course)? It’s easier than you might think. Combat boot outfits are all about balancing out the tough vibe that comes with a pair of chunky shoes. So try pairing them with floaty fabrics, floral prints, boho knits, and sleek mini skirts. You’ll nail that effortlessly cool thing but still look like you, as opposed to some Lara Croft version of yourself (no disrespect, she’s a kickass babe).

Need a little visual aid to assist you in your combat boot outfit styling? No problem. Ahead we’ve put together three looks that will inspire you to give your wardrobe the (chunky) boot.

FashionStylish Sweater and Skirt Combos for Every Occasion

leopard midi skirt and sweater outfit

Sweaters and skirts just go together, like peanut butter and jelly or Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Whatever the reason, this cold-weather combo just seems to consistently work. We’ve seen versions of the pairing successfully executed for almost every occasion from New Year’s Eve parties to daytime at the office–which is likely why it’s a fashion-girl favorite once fall and winter roll around.

One of the things we love most about sweater-skirt combos is the seemingly endless styling possibilities they allow for. You can opt to go monochromatic in a pretty soft blue midi-skirt outfit or mix colors and textures like a cozy lavender cable knit and slick black vegan leather mini skirt for a more eclectic cool vibe. And of course, shoes and accessories like handbags and jewelry only add to the fun (and the style). So if you’re in the market for some fresh sweater-and-skirt outfit inspiration, check out a few of our favorite dynamic duos ahead.
