In my earlier post, I discussed how to layer clothing for warmth while on travel. Today I am posting some pictorial examples of layering – both for dresses and pants.
A dress and sandal combination is an easy way to stay cool while looking dressed up.
Add in a sweater when it starts to cool down. Consider switching to ballet flats for a little more warmth.
Chilly out? Add in leggings. Layer a shirt under the dress for added warmth.
The sweater comes back when it gets really cold. Socks and boots are worn to keep the feet warm. A pretty scarf protects the neck from cold drafts.
Spending the day outside? Add in a long underwear top, camisole, or t-shirt with the layers. Top everything with a windproof/waterproof jacket to hold in the heat
convertible pants roll up into capris when it gets hot outside. Sandals are dressy and cool at the same time. Use a pretty top and jewelry to keep this look from being too casual.
For mild temperatures, add on a sweater and roll the pants down.
Ballet flats replace sandals when it starts to get chilly. Add socks as needed. Replace the top with a 3/4 or long sleeve shirt.
Add the sweater over the shirt when it gets cold. Boots and socks are added for the feet, and a scarf for the neck.
Add in long underwear if you are going to be outside all day. The windproof/waterproof jacket traps heat and keeps the wind from cooling things down.
This is so helpful! Thanks for sharing.
Hope you can use some of the tips when you take your trip!
Thanks for the pictorial — speaks a thousand words, right? This method works with all ages, budgets and sizes. Being a plus size gal I CAN totally pack this way. Once again your postings give valuable informaiton. All the best!
Yes, this is definitely the budget friendly option! Instead of having different clothes/wardrobes for each season you only have one. Some of the pieces ( fleece, down sweaters, silk tops ) are expensive but quality items will last for 10+ years.

I’m very interested in the waterproof boots
You show- what brand are they and do you recommend them? Mahalo!

They were by Merrell. I’m not sure what they have this year. It always varies. Also check out Zappos. They have many nice waterproof boots. They also have free shipping. I order several styles and then send back the ones I don’t want. It’s the only way I can get a decent snow boot in California.
