I'm studying abroad at the University of Edinburgh this upcoming spring and we're supposed to limit the luggage we bring to a carry-on, a small suitcase and a large backpack. I'm trying to figure out what clothes I need to pack but I live in Texas so I don't really own any winter clothing. I've heard that it's extremely cold and rains quite often so I'm planning on buying a winter coat and a rain jacket but I was wondering if y'all had any other suggestions.

Hi!

Edinburgh does get very cold but we also have very changeable weather throughout the day, especially in Spring and Autumn. It's a good idea to wear light layers so you can take some off if it gets a little warmer, so getting a raincoat that will also work as a light jacket might be a good idea. Things like a thin fleece or tops that you can layer together will be useful. A good winter coat will still be pretty essential though since you'll be here in January and February. I hope that's helped a little bit!

You're likely to find it very cold indeed after Texas. Instead of loading up your luggage though, I'd buy stuff when you get here. H&M and Primark will see you togged up for the local climate for a very reasonable sum of money.
