New York Travel Wardrobe for December
New York City puts on one of the best seasonal displays in the world during the holidays. There is so much to see and do like taking in all of twinkling lights in midtown Manhattan, admiring the incredible Saks Fifth Avenue holiday windows and marveling at the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. And of course, you can’t miss the ice rink at Rockefeller Center either.
With these festive activities and the weather in mind, we developed a fun and fashionable New York travel wardrobe to help you pack for your travels this December. Our packing list is full of spectacular seasonal trends – think velvet, bold red, shearling, distressed denim, and oversized elements. Paired together, these pieces are perfect for taking in an abundance of culture at The Met, visiting Rockefeller Center or worshipping the cuisine at Le Bernardin. Check out the items in our packing list below for your December holiday in New York City!
Now let’s talk about the weather in NYC this December. It will be cold, so our packing guide was designed accordingly. Expect high temperatures in the 40s and low temperatures in the 30s. But even with the cold, NYC offers a plethora of unique holiday experiences for you when you visit in December. Enjoy the city, eat well and look fabulous!
