Travel Winter Fashion Essentials

I’m definitely a winter person. In fact, I believe that we can have more wardrobe fun during the cooler months; especially with layering. It’s all about finding the right outfit ideas that will have you looking fashionable yet help you feel warm all season long. The most important thing about learning to layer is getting a very good handle on the must-haves of the season. From the perfect cozy knit to the slouchy leather pants to the oversize coat and more, let’s go through the top 5 essentials of the season. These will take your layered looks to the next level.

1.    The Perfect Knit: While knitwear could seem like less than a fashion trend and more like a wardrobe staple, it’s important to know how to style your knits to ensure you wear them with style. For a modern and minimalist look, you could style your over-sized white knit with wide-leg trousers and heeled ankle boots. For a more colorful look, you could go for a jewel-tone (emerald for example) knit jumper and wear it with your favorite skinny jeans and a huge scarf. You can basically pull it off with everything you’ve got hiding your closets!

2.    The Slouchy Leather Pants: all rules have changed! Forget about the super tight leather pants, this season, it’s all about the comfortable, loose and sporty leather pants. I love styling them with black heels, a simple top/black polo neck, a tailored blazer and minimal jewelry. It’s all about keeping the androgynous orientation.

3.    The Oversized Coat: these coats are on the rise! While they’ve been in trend for a while already, this winter, these jackets looks slightly more fitted. When styling yours, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit fitted, play with proportions and style it with shorts or little skirts, wear heels to lengthen your silhouette and add statement accessories.

4.    The Beanie: definitely the coolest thing you can wear this winter. While it stayed for years the item that children despised wearing at school, it’s now the hit item. It’s just perfect how fashion keeps on turning towards comfortable, “keeping-us-warm” trends.

5.    The Flat Ankle Boots: whatever your style, there will always be a pair you love. They’re a necessity for any winter wardrobe and this season, they’re definitely looking better than ever. Wear them to work or dress up your weekend looks, they’re just so stylish and versatile.

    First of all, I want to say that I really love your blog so far. I’ve always wanted to start a blog but I’ve never known how. I am afraid of taking risks, but you are so generous in your tips and guidance that I’ve finally taken up the courage to seriously put my foot in the business world. My biggest struggle is fear that I won’t have good content and I won’t be successful. But I’ll overcome it. I have a real passion for helping people and I think that will really drive me to do my best. I’m really shy, but I can open up with kind and genuine people. Thank you for being just that.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, I’m always afraid, everyday when I post, travel, take photos. It is completely normal and I think it’s a good thing because that encourages our passion drive to go further and further! Best of luck and thank you for reading! x

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is.

  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
