Whether you’re planning on spending time in the city, flying to your favorite mountain town, or escaping the cold completely at the end of the month, the key to a successful vacation is thorough preparation. Sartorially speaking, that means strategizing your outfits ahead of time. Ahead, we’ve put together three location-specific packing lists to get you started.

CITY

Prioritize warmth, especially if ice-skating in the park or visiting the holiday window displays is on the agenda. A puffer keeps you toasty, but it’s lightweight and breathable. This sheeny black one is made with an animal-free down alternative you can feel good about and, with its longer length and faux-fur collar, looks sleek over any daytime look. Come evening, an elegant cape will take you from dinner to a show.

MOUNTAINS

Dress in layers that you can peel off easily when you get inside. Start with a second-skin jumpsuit, followed by rugged pants and a cozy sweater. On top: A longline vest or a cropped-at-the-hips jacket will keep your core warm, and a chunky cashmere beanie and lined boots make cute finishing touches.

BEACH

You’ll bring the no-brainers, of course—flip-flops, too many bikinis, a straw hat that comes with a handy (and handsome) leather carrying strap. But don’t forget the less-intuitive pieces, like a fiery night-on-the-town dress and a lightweight sweater to wear on the plane.
