No matter what direction you are headed this winter, it’s probably been a while since you broke away and now your weekender needs a serious refresher course. So, start planning your getaway trek to that chi-chi mountain resort, the beach-front property or an on-your-list-for-forever city, where you can delight in the sights and sounds of a new place.
But in between museum hours and restaurant ressies, let us help you re-up your packing list with four escape-artist pieces that bring your look together and represent your fabulous sense of style even hundreds of miles from home. Here are the top essentials to add to the mix to revive your standby getaway looks.
