Are you preparing for your next skiing escape? Finding the right outwear, accessories, and equipment sounds fun but can also become daunting.
Skiing is a fantastic sport and an excellent choice for holidays. Additionally, it has become an increasingly fashionable destination with different trends and styles every season.
With this article, we want to help you find the perfect balance for an iconic winter look that will be both practical and stylish on and off the slopes, whether you're going skiing, relaxing, or enjoying some aprés ski moments in a luxury resort.
Ski Wear Basics
Remember The Layers!
Especially if this is the first time you're going on a ski vacation, this is one of the most important things to keep in mind when preparing your clothing sets. Of course, all things don't match every occasion, but keeping the following order in mind, will guide you in the right direction.
- Base Layers: This includes everything you'll put on first and should keep your body warm and dry. It can be a two-piece (top and pants) or a one-piece that will protect you and wick away your sweat.
- Mid Layers: Weather you're going skiing or not, middle layers will ensure you will always stay warm. Including jerseys, pullovers, vests, fleeces, hoodies, and sweaters, you can easily find what suits your style and will trap the heat.
- Outer Layers: Now that you know how to protect your body from the cold, you should keep away snow, rain, or wind. So choosing quality waterproof ski jackets and pants is the final step.
When accessorizing, your everyday style can be upgraded, and your skiing holiday outfits are no different. Investing in some premium designer choices will make your looks unique and priceless.
However, accessories are not just for style. For more practical reasons, remember that there are items you shouldn't forget to pack with you, like gloves, neck warmers, socks, and beanies
Gear and Equipment
Having the right equipment with you is a top priority if you're going for the whole ski experience. If it's your first time, you should decide if you'll buy or rent your gear, from skis, and ski poles, to boots, helmets, and goggles.
But remember, your must-have equipment is still important, as it can complete a look or even elevate it!
7 Designer Ski Wear Essentials
Ski JacketsFor any outdoor activity, your jacket will be your main piece. You can go safe here and choose neutral colors and accessorize more, or try some trends and go for bold colors, metallics, or prints.
Ski PantsYour pants with your jacket are both parts of the outer layer. These two pieces are your base. So you can go for a total look or even be more creative and try color blocking.
Instead of choosing regular ski pants, you can find something different here for a more stylish look, like salopettes with unique patterns.
Ski SuitsYou can play more with your style and choose a ski suit instead of pants and a jacket. Many brands offer different styles, patterns, and colors for both men and women.
