Winter is coming—and for the Southern Hemisphere, it’s already here. If you live south of the equator, or if this summer’s travels are taking you on adventures to Antarctica, Australia, or waaaaay down south in South America, be prepared to bundle up. Winter lasts through September and depending on where you go, it can get pretty chilly.
Scarves are the simplest, most fashionable way to stay warm while adding a little flair to your outfit. It can even double as a shawl or headpiece in a pinch. Select one with a global-inspired pattern for your world travels.
Sweatshirts are another cool-weather essential, perfect for sightseeing, hiking or cuddling on the veranda with a hot cup of cocoa.
Long-sleeve T-shirts are essential for layering under a hoodie or short-sleeved t-shirt. They can also double as sleep shirts.
A blanket can serve several purposes while traveling. Pack one in your carry-on for the plane ride and add it to your hotel or Airbnb bedding if what’s provided just isn’t cutting it. You can also bring it along on your morning hike and spread it out on the ground to create a picnic area, perfect for sipping coffee in your travel mug or eating a light breakfast. In the evenings, take it to the balcony or patio while you take in the view.
