Going on a holiday during the holidays? We've put together packing lists for sand and snow.

Warm Weather

Never mind filling your carry-on with a million sundresses and caftans. Punctuate a few basic, versatile pieces with eye-catching accessories and you'll have more beach-ready outfits than Heidi Montag on a press bender.

Maximum Wear Maxi Dress

Over a bikini, lunch-ready with sandals or night-friendly with a little jewelry, this maxi dress can take you anywhere (even on the plane, when slipped under a chunky sweater).

Feline Frames

Pair your most basic caftans and coverups with these ultra-glam sunnies...

Bold Beach Bag

Or this Coachella-worthy carry-all.

Seize the Moment

Break out your favorite chunky bracelet that's been hibernating underneath winter sweaters. It'll make any poolside outfit a little bit posh, without overdoing the bling.

Not Your Childhood Speedo

Stand out on the sand—without showing too much skin—in a graphic print one-piece.

file

Hoof It

Toss in animal print sandals. They're tame enough to wear with a herd of outfits.

Cold Weather

Packing heavy sweaters, jackets and pants for snowy climates is far more challenge than packing a couple skirts and bikinis for the beach. To beat the bulk, choose separates that can go all the way from aprés-alarm clock to aprés-dinner.

In the Mood for Snood

Yes, we're obssesed with snoods. But what else could make any sweater three times warmer and four times more cool in two seconds flat?

Metallic Sweater

Dressy or daytime-y: your choice.

Happy Feet

Shearling-lined boots are polished enough to wear to dinner, but cozy and sturdy enough to wear all day. They're fuzzy rugs for your feet—and no one has to know.

file

Purple Pants

Ditch your go-to jeans for colored corduroys instead. They're warmer.

Puffy Stuff

Packing a puffer might seem counterintuitive, but it's the one jacket you really can ball up and scrunch down to maximize suitcase space. Which means more room for layering pieces (and fancy dresses, and all the impractical things you really want to pack).
