For you who are not winter person, we feel you. Sometimes it’s not the idea of cold that discourage you from taking that winter trip, but the thought of packing all winter essentials and attire that can be daunting.
Which is why, a special SweetEscape’s packing tips for your winter travel is definitely overdue. Check out what smart winter packing tips to heed while staying warm and looking extra fashionable for even your coldest vacation :
Winter packing doesn’t have to spell headache for you. Begin to pack your basics just as you would for any other seasons. Your standard or basic packing list should not change much, for example underwear, your favorite white clothes or reliable jeans, toiletries, accessories etc. The key is to “think warm” with your basics, so choose your thicker favorite items to go such as black sweaters instead of black tees.
Thermal clothings will be your savior whenever you’re off to some freezing locations. The secret to looking good in your skinny jeans, sleek boots and warm jacket is layering prior with thermal leggings and long-sleeved thermal top.
Now it is important to pick quality whenever you’re shopping for thermal clothing. Opt for comfortable quality from trusted brands because these essentials will last for a long-time use.
The effective tip to staying warm lies on little items. So pack your good travel hat that can cover your ears, part of your neck, and is made of material for maximum warmth. Additionally, you’d want to include a pair of waterproof gloves and a few pair of socks. If you have extra space in your luggage, some thick shawl would be another great item to keep warm while looking extra romantic too.
Where you’re going might vary in in terms of temperatures, so if you’re planning to visit several cities at the same time - pack for the coldest destinations on your trip. You’d also better covered with waterproof coat that is longer and slightly oversized, so you can layer up without looking too bulky.
A solid and decent- looking pair of boots is your friend during your winter travel. Pick one that is travel-friendly, easy to match with your clothing, and comfortable. Boots work better compared to shoes or sneakers and dry better too. Just make sure you opt for darker-color boots so you have no problem with puddles or muds.
The biggest mistake in your winter packing is to not include on your lotions and chapstick. Some travellers also bring sunblock protection just to be safe under sunlight. With these extra items, you will not only look your best but feel your best. That make up will stick extra longer, your skin will not break out and trust us, you’ll look just that prettier in front of camera!

No, this is not a marketing campaign, it's a fact! Don't believe us? Check out these real stories from our real clients on why they love SweetEscape so much!
Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.
So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.
"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.
When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!
"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."
Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).
"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.
TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.
"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.
What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.
"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
