It’s 2015. We’re back at our desks, with Christmas trees piling up on the sidewalks and the wind chill creeping lower and lower on the thermometer. There’s only one surefire way to get through the deep, dark part of winter that lies ahead: vacation. Indeed, having a getaway plan in January, February, or March is a crucial step towards surviving the chilly season. Just be sure to bring along your Dockers®—they’re the must-carry suitcase-essential that begs to come along for the ride, no matter your final destination.
Unzipped broke down five favorite winter getaway ideas, along with handy recommendations on which Dockers pieces to pack.
Your travel motto: Ready To Shred!

The most common of winter escapes involves long powder days on the slopes, followed by the obligatory après and warm nights by the fire with friends. Whether you’re out west in mountainous ranges, or at a more quaint eastern village, don’t forget to pack our Classic-Fit Field Khakis, the perfect casual option for a sporty getaway—cut in durable washed twill with just enough room to fit your long johns underneath. For bonus style points on the mountain, top the look off with our Shawl Collar Cardigan and some cold-weather accessories.
