Charter Club Cashmere Crewneck Sweater

 

A chic, simple sweater is a winter must! Readers loved this Charter Club cashmere sweater, and it was a huge hit with readers during Black Friday. It has a slim silhouette that’s not too tight and is perfect for layering. 

It’s also a great alternative to wool for those who are allergic. It’s a basic that you’ll be reaching for all season. It comes in a range of pretty colors, and sizes range from XS-XXL. This is also available in plus sizes (0X-4X), too!

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

 

These Spanx faux leather leggings are not only incredibly sleek and stylish but make super versatile travel pants. They’re breathable, stretchy, and super comfy, especially on long-haul flights. Plus, they’re great for layering with fleece tights in the winter for extra cozy warmth!

They come in sizes XS-XL, petite sizes XS-XL, and plus sizes 1X-2X

If you’re a fan of these leggings, I also own the moto faux leather leggings version which fast became my favorite flight pants, and are available in sizes XS-3X (and also petite sizes).

They’re cozy for fall and winter weather, and while they’re not waterproof, many readers have suggested using a waterproofing spray for any rainy or snowy travels!

Another Black Friday favorite, this Lo & Sons crossbody securely and stylishly holds all the essentials for a day of travel. It’s made of beautiful leather that comes in a range of colors (with a faux leather option, too!) and can convert from a shoulder bag to a large clutch. 

Inside, there are tons of pockets, one of which can even hold a mini tablet, and while it’s compact, readers say it can hold a lot! Polished-looking but travel-friendly, no wonder readers were grabbing this up in November!

Warm and insulating without the bulk, L.L. Bean’s PrimaLoft jacket packs down into one of its own pockets for ultimate warmth on the go! While it’s incredibly lightweight, the powerful insulation will keep you toasty, plus its wind- and water-resistant! It has a slightly-fitted, feminine silhouette and is awesome for layering when the temps really drop.

For those freezing winter getaways, readers looked to Terramar’s Thermasilk top and bottoms to keep them warm. Made of ultra-thin yet durable silk, these thermals feel incredibly soft and comfy!
