I have plans to visit NYC for Thanksgiving, and I’ve already been thinking about which items to add to my New York packing list. I used to live in NYC, but I’m out of practice now that I live in L.A.—especially when it comes to dressing for cold winter days. With that in mind, I came up with a handy list of pieces to pack in my suitcase next month.
The packing list has a mix of winter staples I already own, like tailored coats and turtlenecks, and some trend-forward pieces of the moment that are sitting in my cart. That includes everything from chunky platform boots and shearling jackets to cargo pants and colorful striped knits. Ahead, see the pieces that have landed on my New York packing list.
