    In addition to what I wrote earlier, being European and travelling to the U.S., can you help me with this:
    The largest problem I face when in the U.S. is the big difference between temperature outside (I usually travel to New York, Washington DC, and Miami, in spring/summer) and the freezing, airconditioned conference rooms inside. Not used to that, I don’t know how to dress for that. Usually, I end up with a chunky fleece sweater or my coat over my business outfit in the rooms. And socks! And then taking all that off again on the way out.
    How do you keep elegant with that large change in temperature inside/outside??

      Hi Stenna,
      One of the things that has worked for me is a cashmere wrap. They are perfect for those freezing conference rooms and look very chic. I have a few in red, coral and leopard print. I purchased them at Neiman Marcus and always take them with me when I travel. They’re great on planes too.

    I love this look and your suggestions. However, I’m European (Dutch)and facing the opposite problem. I travel to the U.S. several times a year, for work. And always end up feeling quite underdressed, in my casual, dark-coloured European style. What should I pack, next time?!

    At 40, you are still so young! I can’t believe people of 40 would need this advice! You are a long time old. Enjoy life!
