From bright hand-knit sweaters to hiking boots, beanies to sweatshirts, this list has it all


If the weather in Kolkata isn’t quite giving you the winter feels, it’s time for a trip to the mountains. For the next in our series of holiday fashion — after how to sun, sand, sea in style and acing the urban fashion game — we look at taking a hike in style.

Whether your mountain travel involves trails and treks, or cosying up in front of picture windows with some hot chocolate, this fashion essentials list has something for you for your next vacation.



Add a pop of summer colours to your winter landscape, all while staying warm. These hand-knit oversized sweaters are bright, vibrant and so chic. They’re quirky enough to fit your fashion sense and cosy enough to keep you toasty in the lower temperatures.

Puffer jacket

These puffer jackets are essential when going to the mountains. They keep you warm and are waterproof so you’re protected against surprise drizzles, hail or snow. Roll them up and put them into the carry bag they come with and save lots of packing space in your suitcase. Win-win!


This knitted poncho is a great choice to layer on top of your outfits when you go for long walks during the evenings in the hills. Pair them with leggings and boots and you’re good to go!

Fur tights

Love your leggings but they’re too light for the chilly hills? Or want to sport a dress while getting brunch with the view of the hills, but worried about feeling cold? Well, shed all your worries and get these fur-lined tights that will not only keep you warm but also add a vintage edge to your outfits.

Hiking Boots

If your mountain vacations are all about getting close to nature and going on rambling (or planned) hikes, then you need a pair of sturdy boots for the journey. These hiking boots are very comfortable to walk miles in and look grunge as well, plus they come in colours other than earthy tones. They’ll protect your feet from the rocky terrain as well as provide the comfort you need.


If your whole vibe is low-key and you love being cosy, then a beanie is a must on your packing list. Get an oversized one like Bob Marley or go for the snug ones that will look adorable in all your selfies.

Sweatshirts and hoodies

What do you do when the day’s temperature is in between puffer jacket and light layering? Well, you opt for a hoodie! What better than sweatshirts and hoodies to keep warm in the chilly weather! Skip the boring ones and go for ones with bright and bold prints that are striking. Graphic sweatshirts and hoodies look best paired with denim and sneakers so don’t forget to add those to your #OOTD!
