If you’re packing for a ski trip this winter, then you’ll definitely want to bring cozy and chic outfits that are perfect for lounging fireside aprés ski. To help you look like a stylish snow bunny this season, today’s winter style guide shares an outfit idea that’s fit for the mountains.
Winter Style Guide: How To Look Glamorous on a Ski Trip
Whether you’re an avid skier or a novice snowboarder, you’ll look like a glamorous snow bunny off the slopes by following these style tips. To me – half the fun of heading to the mountains during winter is just relaxing with hot cocoa and a good book by a roaring fireplace, while a flurry of snowflakes comes down outside. That’s why packing warm and cozy outfits are essential to looking great while staying toasty.
Wear a Wool or Cashmere Turtleneck
Starting with a great layering piece is the key to staying warm when the temps drop. That’s why a wool or cashmere turtleneck (like this one by Jonathan Simkhai) is a must-have for a ski trip. Opting for wool or cashmere is wise because they naturally regulate your body temperature and are moisture-wicking (making them great options for hitting the slopes).
Stay Warm in Velvet Jeans
To stay warm while looking a bit dressed up (especially for a ski trip in Aspen or Lake Tahoe), velvet jeans are a great choice. Once you slip into these luxurious-looking, ultra-comfortable pants, you’ll never want to take them off. Not to mention – they feel sumptuous to the touch, which makes them especially cozy. Plus, a pair of skinny velvet jeans easily fits into big furry boots, which is a fun style statement for the snow.
Bring a Structured Handbag
To complement your upscale snow bunny outfit, a structured designer handbag (like this crocodile bag by Nancy Gonzalez) puts the finishing touch on your ensemble. Plus, it’s a great choice for wearing out to dinner, or for shopping at the boutiques in town.
Pack a Puffer Coat
Whether you plan to hit the slopes or just stick around for the aprés ski celebrations, a lightweight puffer coat is a wise choice. Accented with a glamorous removable fur trim collar, a puffer coat (like this gorgeous long fitted jacket by Herno) will keep you warm while adding a stylish touch. Plus, it’s great when the snow starts to fall, as the water-resistant material prevents you from getting soaked.
Elevate Your Look with Contemporary Jewelry
Contemporary jewelry (like this bracelet and pair of earrings from Alexis Bittar) instantly elevate your look. A modern bangle with sparkling gemstones pairs perfectly with cool lucite hoop earrings, creating a finishing touch that looks stylish and on-trend.
