Outfit Tips, Tricks and Styling Guide for a Trip to Napa

Winter, spring, summer or fall—there’s no such thing as the right or wrong season to be here. Thanks to the temperate climate, it’s quite easy to wear whatever you’d like when visiting. However, it can be stressful to pack for a trip because you don’t want to be uncomfortable.

We’ll be breaking down outfit and packing ideas based on different seasons, occasions and activities that you’re likely to engage in. We’ll also be sharing other advice and packing essentials.

Year-long essentials

This goes for any trip you take, especially to Napa. Be sure to carry a sturdy pair of shoes because you’re likely to walk around or maybe even cycle when you’re out exploring or on wine tours. Keep a small, lightweight purse or backpack which will hold your essentials including battery pack, camera, medicine, makeup, maybe snack s and water.

As for outfits, keeping a pair of basic colored jeans or pants that you can mix and match with different tops is a lifesaver. Jeans are versatile and can be worn in any weather and protect your legs during hikes and treks too—although yoga pants are stretchier.

Some people prefer to dress up when they visit wineries, so you’re free to pack more dressy outfits too. If you’re visiting Napa, you’re sure to tour local wineries right?

Carry sunglasses and a hat as well! Especially for your time spent outdoors during the day.

Spring

Spring is the perfect time to enjoy warm sunny skies, cool breezes and lots of wine! If you and your friends or family are coming down to Napa in the spring, expect to see beautiful flowers and the vineyards looking fresh.

Pack dresses, bright colors and prints, and light, breezy tops.

Summer

Summer is the ideal time to pull out your favorite shorts and skirts as well as dresses and summer tops. Play with print and color too, but keep clothes you’d be comfortable in. The Instagram photo isn’t worth the chafing!

Fall

Fall is perhaps the best time to visit Napa. It’s cooler, with fewer crowds and lots to enjoy. Some cute pants or couple of pairs of jeans for when it’s cooler out and a light jacket can keep you safe throughout.

Deeper, muted colors are always a great choice for fall—plus you can accessorize with scarves and hats.

Winter

Winter in Napa isn’t as cold as other places. It can get chilly so light sweaters and cozy jackets and scarves will be perfect! You can also wear boots—so long as they don’t weigh you down. Nothing chicer than a winter look!
