What to Pack for a Winter City Break

A winter weekend city break should always be a relaxing getaway ... yet packing for one can sometimes be anything but! Limited airline hand baggage allowances, coupled with the colder weather make it a challenge to pack the perfect capsule wardrobe. What you require are versatile, easy to wear pieces that travel well and stay looking good, and we have plenty to choose from in our Men's and Women's cashmere collections.

Below, we share three essential Mongolian cashmere pieces from both collections to include in your weekend city break wardrobe. From chic capes to stylish jackets, each piece can be worn in several ways, so you can save your suitcase space for those all-important souvenirs.

And to ensure you don't forget the essentials, you'll also find our complete winter city break weekend packing checklists for women and men at the end of this post! Free to download, our helpful checklists include everything you need for a weekend away in colder weather, so all you need to worry about is getting to the airport on time for a pre-flight cocktail.
