Ski in Style

post Image


Winter break is upon us and it’s time to hit the slopes. Wherever you’re travelling, packing can be overwhelming, especially when you need to look great on and off the slopes.

Like every trip, there are some insider tips to share….

You may not think fashion inspiration will come from down fabric and gortex. But don’t under estimate a perfectly fitted down jacket with a great patterned ski pant- these are absolutely your staples. However, the true secret to any successful winter outfit are layers, and always remember color is the key.

After an awesome day on the slopes, après-ski is well deserved. Start simple with a pair of stretch jeans (those legs will need some comfort after a hard day of skiing), a well fitted tee and a chic sweater. Think long and lean. Don’t get bogged down with cabled and chunky knits…or God forbid, Fair Isle. To complete the look go with a fur trimmed or shearling coat, a beanie and some great cowboy boots.
