It’s so important to protect your bare neck during the cooler seasons, and even if you’re rugged up in your best trench coat jacket, if you’re not wearing a scarf you’ll definitely feel the chill. There is no scarf too woolly for a trip to New York during the winter.
It’s not just your body that needs to be kept warm while in New York, your face and head are going to need protecting, too. Wear jackets with hoods, or pack your favourite beanie. There’s nothing worse than your whole face freezing while the rest of your body is cosy and warm.
A thick pair of warm gloves are an absolute must when packing for a trip to New York during the winter. Just remember, though, that you won’t have much mobility, or be able to use your camera or phone easily, with gloves. You might want to consider a pair of mittens with cut-outs for your fingers instead.
Don’t forget a warm pair of woollen socks that will keep your feet nice and cosy, too. Make sure they’re warm and thick and, very importantly, comfortable. You don’t want to spend your days walking around the Big Apple, only to find your feet are in pain at the end of the day.
