For me personally I put together a ‘Winter Fashion Capsule‘ of items I know I will need. It’s not that hard putting together essential items to pack during the winter months. We know we need something light and something warm, especially when you’re traveling. I am currently in Prague, staying at the lovely Czech Inn and busy exploring the city. It is cold but not extremely like when I first visited in 2016 when it was thick snow for the duration of our visit.

What to Pack for Winter in Prague

So what items did I pack for winter in Prague? If you read last week’s post on what to pack for a winter city escape then you know. I rarely deviate from what works for me and this is no different, I have packed my essentials. I knew when planning my trip to Prague that the temperatures would be below 10 degrees. Thankfully there has been no focus for snow but just in case it does change, I am ready. The packing list contains items enough for a 4-day trip to Prague.

Over the years I have learnt to pack light, people ask me how I manage to travel with carry on only. It is not something I picked up overnight but after a couple of trips, I learnt what was essential and what wasn’t. One thing I have never wavered on is carrying a coat regardless of the weather. Because of that, I always have a warmer outwear wherever I go around the world.

Essential items to Pack for Winter in Prague

I believe in planning ahead of time, researching the destination before departure. Knowing what I should expect upon my arrival and what will keep me warm whilst there. This essential items to pack for winter in Prague is based on my personal experience, yours might be different.

Outwear wear: Coats and Jumpers

As I said already, I never waiver on ensuring I have packed warmer outwear regardless of destination. Whilst my destination might be warm, the UK rarely is, therefore I pack warmer outwear. For this trip I have packed 1 coat and 2 jumpers.

Inner wear: Thermals or tights

I dislike being cold, I am a sucker for warmer conditions and my home is practically a sauna. Everyone complains because of how hot it is but it is my home, my sanctuary and I keep it how I like. On this occasion I have packed my 2-in-1 thermal tights which have been God sent. The weather has dropped, feeling a tab bit colder than a few days ago.

Footwear: Boots or Trainers

Because last time I came it was showing so badly I opted to pack knee high boots instead of trainers. The boots have protected my feet and legs from the blasting cold Prague is experiencing. I have seen plenty of people wearing trainers with thermal socks and I think that works too.

Accessories: Gloves, Scarf and hat

Whenever the weather gets cooler, I whip out my gloves and beanie and they become part of my essentials. Scarves are an all year round accessory and I just change the thickness of them dependent of the weather. Right now I am walking around with my scarf blanket which is absolutely warm and snugly.

Other items to take!

Because I won’t always be in the cold, it is important to pack some basics as well, like a tank top. Staying at Czech Inn I have the luxury of sitting in the common rooms or cafe and flip flops are better than boots.
