Winter Holiday Essentials: The A-List

Favorite pieces for the vacation 

I can´t believe this is the last month of 2016. It´s time for my last travel for this year and before closing 2016 I would like to share my favorite winter holiday essentials with you.

From comfy clothing to shoes, hats and bags, here is my travel list.

The Bag

If you´re like me, you need to fit your laptop, camera, accessories, hairbrush, toiletries and all the other paraphernalia important to survive the trip in one bag.

Also, the bag has to be chic,  nice to look at and comfy to carry. Scouring the internet for something that fits my budget is a huge challenge, however, I actually came over one that suits my purpose. The Alexander Wang Bucket bag is a big favorite for the moment and is the quintessential IT-girl accessory. It features a studded bottom and edgy styling. The bag has the perfect color and size – not too small nor too big and just the perfect amount of chicness necessary when wandering around the airport.

The Hoodie

Every vacation needs a hoodie. The perfectly cool and printed hoodie from Dsquared2 .  will add character to denim or leggings, even a metallic skirt. Your look will be relaxed fit with a casual silhouette.

Street Couture

No matter if you´re going for skiing, a romantic weekend to Paris, or an adventures holiday day with our friends,
you´ll need your street couture in your bag. I recently came over SJYP, a coveted label launched by Central Saint Martins alumni, Steve J and Yoni P. From soft denim with tough distressed attitude to fitted velour jackets with intricate embroidery, the duos brand has become a standout name among those in the know. Below are my favorite picks from SJYP for the perfect weekend pack.

The Parka

With this parka, low key styling meets intricate attention-to-detail. The plush velvet texture on the pockets and brightly colored embroidery at the back makes the parka to the perfect weekend essential.

The Sneakers

No weekend without the sneakers. Croc-embossed leather dials up the luxe appeal on Giuseppe Zanotti’s statement low-top sneakers. Black colouring keeps them easy to style with a flash of gold-tone hardware for added gloss. I just love them!

Classic stripes and a snug turtleneck lend all-season versatility to this lovely black and white pullover from SJYP. The embroidered motif on the breast keeps it modern and interesting.
