Cold Castles

It’s January. Flights to Europe are cheap. But, it’s gonna be cold! Jane’s Vanity has you covered, with stealth ways to survive the chill. Line yourself and your carry-on with the luxury of packable warmth.

Before the plane rolls back, you’ll be rolling up in your best stockings. For a winter trip, may we suggest all Falke hosiery all the time? Travel in woolen comfort with Falke’s Cream Cable Tights in Black, Hazel, or Mistletoe. Their fancy 3-D footwork converts to smoothness as it ascends the leg. 

Falke’s Barolo Soft Merino Tights would keep you warm at a wine-tasting. The Mistletoe version might be just the thing for an oh-so-Latin embrace. We like this look with a short skirt and boots. If you do too, be sure to add the extra layer of Falke’s Gleaming Hive Socks in lots of colors.

For evening, Falke offers black tights in dressy variations. Choose the Moon Gala, embellished with a 3-D baroque design. Or the Magic Evening in a geometric criss-cross of gold or silver lurex. 

Just a few Dana Pisarra knits left in stock (since this wonderful company closed its doors in 2022). First, shimmy into the Venus Amarena Lace Bust Camisole set. Add black stockings. Then layer over the Bordeaux Rib Silk Top and Liberty Black Wool Skirt. With a lacy flourish, these pieces merge into a complete travel wardrobe.

Because cozy winter sleepwear is essential, add Christine Vancouver’s peacock-patterned Erte Pajamas (in Silk or Velvet) and matching devoré Erte Silk Velvet Robe. And don’t be too proud to pull on Falke’s Gleaming Hive socks.

All of these pieces pack to nothing. Wear the boots on the plane. Swear to limit your cosmetics (you can do it). Then, a goddess of warmth and minimalism, you can stride through your trip with just the pairing of Elisabeth Weinstock’s Sydney Natural Weekend Tote and her Harbor Island Natural Flat Wristlet.

The secret to winter travel is to layer. Pretty layers from Jane’s Vanity will add sizzle to your “Room with a View. “ Even if the room is ice-cold.
