While the Middle East has extreme weather patterns in its own right, it’s safe to say it rarely (if ever) snows here. Yet, for those traveling to one of the Big 4 Fashion Weeks – which start tomorrow in New York City – there are a lot of weather-related preparations that must be made. With the Northeastern United States experiencing Winter Storm Jonas recently, and arctic temperatures continuing on through New York Fashion Week, it’s best to steel yourself against the inevitable misfortunes of winter’s distinctive, miserable weather. While London, Milan, and Paris promise warmer days than New York’s sub-zero temperatures, weather experts expect plenty of windy, rainy moments along the way.

Savoir Flair compiled this weather-related packing guide to make sure that you’re fully prepared for what’s to come when you visit the fashion capitals this month.

New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is shaping up to be a cold one. With below-freezing temperatures predicted all week, you will need to layer up. If you want to make a fashionable splash despite the weather, aim for a really great statement coat to pull your look together.

London Fashion Week

London is gloomy during the winter, and it rains constantly, but at least it won’t be quite as cold as New York. Prepare for the worst by packing a stylish umbrella and wellies, and make sure your outfit can withstand the cold, the rain, and the wind.

Milan Fashion Week

Escape from the gray days of London and the winter storms of New York to fairer skies in Milan this season. The average high is predicted to be around 10 degrees, which means you can easily get away with a cozy sweater and a light layering piece as opposed to a heavy winter coat. Be on the watch for evening showers, and make sure to pack your umbrella just in case.

Paris Fashion Week

When attending Fashion Week in Paris, the fashion capital of the world, it’s important to bring out your chicest pieces. However, with cold weather and cloudy days ahead, keep in mind the importance of statement-making outerwear, like leather jackets and stylish longline coats, which look great when worn over skinny jeans, feminine dresses, and more.
