The hills are calling

I’m heading for a 15-day trip to the hills but can only carry one bag. Could you suggest essentials I should carry?

Wear comfortable boots in a neutral colour as they are travel-friendly and also good for the winter. Carry a pair of slippers, two to three sweaters and one overcoat, which you can wear while you are travelling. If the place is extremely cold place, take two sets of thermals, three-four pairs of warm leggings, gloves and a beanie. Also take good skincare to keep your skin hydrated and a thermal water bottle to keep yourself hydrated. And don’t forget medicines to help you fight any sort of ailment you may experience on your trip.

Winter wonderland

With winter here, which should I go for—a trench coat, leather jacket or bomber jacket?

As winter approaches, we will be transitioning from light outerwear to heavy duty coats. For this climate, a bomber jacket would be suitable. A bomber jacket is a short jacket with a front zipper and functional pockets on both sides. Made of leather, polyester, cotton or nylon, bomber jackets come in various types and have a sleek look that pair well with warm inner wear. These are perfect for the winter and provide a great style statement as well.
