Going on a Warm Weather Getaway? Here’s What to Bring
The start of the new year can bring about a certain down-in-the-dumps slump. The holidays are over, the weather is bleak and your office doesn’t have a day off until Memorial Day—sigh. The best way to brighten your mood? Plan a winter getaway. Whether you jet to Tulum or drive to Arizona, there’s not much that the warm sun, lots of vitamin D and vacation shopping can’t fix. And, to sweeten the deal even more, we’ll help you with that last one. Here, 17 items to take on your winter escape trip.
Lightweight BB Cream
You’re finally getting some sun, so don’t pile on the foundation. Instead, stick to a tinted moisturizer that will even out your complexion and provide a subtle glow.
Jane Iredale ($48)
A pop of color for your sunny destination.
Frizz-Fighting Hair Oil
Leave the hair tools at home and take advantage of the salty, warm air. Apply this hydrating oil throughout damp hair for easy, breezy beach waves.
Captain Blankenship ($34)
A built-in flattering cinch in at the waist.
Solid and Striped ($168)
Colorblocked Mirrored Sunglasses
A pair of shades that will look great on the beach while still being sturdy enough for winter commutes when you’re back to reality.
A little sun protection is a given, but this one is both SPF 46 and gentle against acne-prone and sensitive skin—a double whammy.
A subtle gold embellishment that will go with everything.
Elizabeth and James ($125)
Don't pack three different powders just to achieve the perfect glow. This six-hued palette does the trick in one.
Cover FX ($39)
Colorful and comfortable.
Loeffler Randall ($295)
An easy, throw-on-and-go one-piece is a must-have.
MDS Stripes ($260)
Tiered Maxi Skirt
Swap a striped tee with a leather crop top for a day-to-night look.
La DoubleJ ($590)
Although often overlooked, lips are incredibly thin and therefore vulnerable to sun damage. Protect them with this SPF 50 balm.
Sun protection never looked so chic.
Hat Attack ($93)
The marble update to the classic is practically vacation-made.
Cult Gaia ($298)
Size up so it can double as a beach cover-up.
