There is inherent glitz and glamour in the world of alpine fashion. Whether you partake in leisurely cross-country skiing or chase the adrenaline of a black diamond run, it’s a classy affair. For active runs, hanging out at the chalet, or enjoying après ski festivities, being in the mountains is an ideal opportunity to show off your chic slope-side style. Here we have put together some luxurious (and practical) items that will make you stand out on the slopes.
Made with a water-repellent polyester shell and responsibly sourced duck down, this glamorous colour block ski jacket has all the bells and whistles. The adjustable belt at the waist gives a flattering silhouette, while the interior snow skirt and sleeve gaiters keep you protected. Pair with the matching colour block pants for a chic coordinated look.
The moon boot trend is back, and no one is doing it better than Prada. These fun booties are perfect for heading to and from the chalet or for après ski adventures. Not only are they fashion-forward, but the nylon fabric is water repellent, ensuring dry and comfy feet all day long.
Ski suits are seemingly the hottest item on the slopes this season. This one piece from Goldbergh has six outer pockets, two inner pockets, and a sleeve pocket for your ski pass. It also features a snow catcher at the bottom so snow won’t creep inside. The suit features a stretch lining and anti-odour finish, ensuring you stay comfortable and fresh all day. If you are someone who enjoys easy-to-wear silhouettes , these suits are a polished and practical option.
Chalet wear is about comfort—chic comfort, that is. This MadHappy pullover is made from a custom Polar Fleece Bonded Sherpa, allowing for the coziest vibes while still looking put together. There are also matching sherpa sweatpants, for the full monochromatic teddy bear ensemble.
A good ski mask never fails to impress. This one from Fendi is neutral in colour but bold in design. The front is finished with silver micro studs that coordinate with the white band, while the mirrored lens features the FF motif.
Safety is sexy. New from the FW 21/22 collection and a Fusalp and French fashion house Chloé collaboration, and with both lateral and chin protection, an anti-intrusion shell, and a ventilation system, this helmet not only looks good but will feel good too.
Layering can be tricky. To stay warm and protected but not feel bulky or too hot, Bogner makes layering simple and sleek with staple pieces such as this Beline1 top. Featuring a tailored fit that sits close to the body and a collar that zips at the neck, the top functions as a perfect first layer.
Canada Goose recently launched its line of footwear, which includes the Snow Mantra Boot. If you are familiar with Canada Goose, you know that when it comes to designing gear made for cold temperatures and difficult terrains, it is unmatched. These boots were tested on the icy tundra of Northern Canada and designed specifically for extreme environments. They will keep you warm to temperatures as cold as minus 30 and are 100 per cent waterproof. And while you may or may not be exploring the Arctic, these boots are both stylish and sensible for anyone participating in winter adventures.
Perfect Moment Faux Leather Ski Suit
As mentioned above, ski suits are one of the trendiest items on the slopes this year. It’s only natural that someone designed a ski suit with another trend in mind—leather. This suit from Perfect Moment is the ultimate retro ski fantasy. Featuring a high-waisted belt and a contour fit, this suit is unbelievably flattering. A ski pass pocket adds to its practicality, while the thermal fleece lining avoids the need for extra layers underneath (on milder days). This is a one and done—an effortless ensemble.
