Fall can be a great time for traveling! While some people prefer tropical getaways or sunny beach trips when the weather gets cold, we here at OTBT Shoes think autumn vacations to chillier climates are the absolute best. Picture the beauty of a cozy cabin in the mountains of Colorado, or a lakeside resort surrounded by colorful fall foliage in upstate New York.

No matter where you are headed or what you have planned once you get there, you need to make sure you bring all the essentials to keep you warm and comfortable on your trip.

Here’s 4 things you should consider packing in your suitcase this fall.

The Right Clothing

This may sound overly-simplistic, but it’s true. Having the right clothing can make all the difference on the enjoyment of your trip. For a smooth, hassle-free vacation, you need consider all the variables when making your clothing choices. Where are you headed? What’s the weather going to be like during your stay? What activities do you have planned? All of this will make a difference in what you will bring along with you. For a fall trip, take warm clothing for colder days, cooler clothing for warmer days, and clothing that’s perfect for layering on those in-between days.  We also recommend taking versatile pieces that can be used several times to make multiple different outfits. Here’s a short list to get you started:

  • Jeans
  • Shorts
  • Black or Khaki Pants
  • Leggings
  • Sweater
  • Hoodie or Fleece
  • Short-Sleeved T-Shirt
  • Long-Sleeved Crew Neck Shirt
  • Cardigan or Open-Front Sweater
  • Leather or Jean-Jacket

Something Cozy for Extra Warmth

If you plan on heading somewhere cooler, make sure you pack something cozy to keep you warm on the colder days. Fuzzy socks, cuddly blankets, cozy bathrobes, and long drapey ponchos can be great additions to your suitcase. And if you’re taking a trip with your significant other, these items are also perfect for cuddling.

A Hat

This overlooked item can really make a difference in your vacation wardrobe. Take your travel outfit from ordinary to chic with the simple addition of a stylish floppy hat. Choose a wide-brimmed hat or baseball cap for days when you need to keep the sun out of your eyes. Or if you’re heading somewhere colder, a knit beanie will keep your ears nice and warm, and have the added benefit of looking super cool.

Versatile Casual Boots

What fall travel outfit would be complete without the perfect pair of boots or booties? We recommend taking only one or two pairs with you on your trip. The best picks are casual, comfortable, and go with every possible combination of outfits in your suitcase. Heel or no heel, it’s up to you! Just keep in mind how much you plan to be walking on your trip, and make sure your footwear is up to the task.

For this suitcase, we’ve packed the Urban. These booties feature a stacked heel with inside top strap pulls for easy on-and-off. This makes them great for going through security lines at the airport. These booties are both comfortable and stylish, with handcrafted stitching and a modern oil sole accent. They’re our pick for the perfect fall suitcase.
