See celeb-stylist Rachel Zoe's picks on packing smart for a cozy and chic Thanksgiving.
Get your Thanksgiving off to a great start by packing the right pieces for your travels. I always make sure to choose outfits around three key factors: the weather, the occasion, and traveling comfort. When you start from there, the rest is a piece of cake! Here are my picks for a perfectly packed carry-on:
Ultimate Opaque Matte Tights by Commando “You can never have too many pairs of opaque tights. Pair these under all of your winter skirts and dresses to stay snug and chic.”
Mary1 Booties by BCBGMAXAZRIA “How après-ski-chic are these booties? Wear them with cozy cashmere tights and a sweater dress for a chic winter look.”
Belted Shirtdress by Milly “This printed shirtdress is a classic pick for Thanksgiving dinner—timeless and fashion-forward at the same time with its button-down front and posh print.”
Retro Stretch Bracelet by Tinley Road “Obviously no holiday ensemble is complete without a fetching statement piece. Rock this bracelet with any winter look that could use an added touch of glam.”
Arctic Adventure Jacket by French Connection “This jacket is the perfect example of fashion meeting function. If you’re traveling to a colder climate for the holidays, I would definitely recommend packing this.”
The Chloe Beanie by Alternative “When traveling, keep an unstructured hat on you at all times to hide post-plane hair.”
Leather Glove with Roller Buckle by Michael Kors“Leather gloves are a cold weather accessory staple. This pair will add a cozy touch to any look and will last you a lifetime.”
Varigated Stripe Scarf by Levis “This striped scarf has a home-knit feel that I love. If you won’t be DIY-ing your own snug shawl this winter season, it is the next best thing!”
Keith Open Sweater by Line Knitwear “I never get on a plane without a super comfy cardigan. This one is great to wrap up in because it has an open front and chic ribbed hem.”
Pocket Tank by Rag & Bone “This tank is the perfect piece for layering. Wear it from morning to night under your go-to sweaters, then go to bed in it if need be—it’s soft enough to sleep in!”
Cole Platform Pumps by Rachel Zoe “I designed these shoes to be versatile enough for every occasion, including your Turkey Day feast! Wear them with a printed shirtdress and you’ll look oh-so-sophisticated at the dinner table.”
Tour Bell Bottom Corduroy Pants by Genetic Denim “These corduroy bell bottoms are winter’s take on summer’s popular denim flares. Wear them with a chunky knit sweater and wedge booties for a casual and cute daytime outfit.”
