Whether you’re heading to Aspen for fresh powder or spending a weekend shredding the slopes in Vail, your skiwear needs to be warm and waterproof. But why can’t it also be stylish? Today’s ski brands are turning out parkas, pants and base layers that are both
chic and practical—giving you the best of both worlds.
MAD FOR PLAID
A high fashion take on the classic rugged plaid shirt, this puffer jacket combines a triple threat of bright color tartan with high-shine nylon and a rhinestone embellishment. Moncler Chou puffer jacket, $2,005; and Maglione sweater, $1,060, are all at Neiman Marcus. Chaos Giana cashmere beanie with fur pom, $74.99.
Rose gold and titanium usher in an update to the usual choice of basic silver. Left, Erin (Donna Baldwin Agency), wears the Sam NYC Willa down puffer jacket, $695 from Garbarini; Bond pants, $229, Obermeyer; Margaret O’Leary mock neck, $188; and Moncler Helis Stivale boots, $765 at Neiman Marcus. Right, Suzana’s outfit includes the Eve down jacket, $428; Doe cargo pant, $258; Rosie top, $148; and Elsa headband, $40, all from Skea. Moncler Tilda Stivale boots, $875, Neiman Marcus.
Heidi wears the Sam NYC Willa down puffer jacket, $695 from Garbarini. Right, a sleek white ski parka is always a chic choice, whether worn with matching pants or paired with jeans for a casual mountain look. Michael wears Moncler’s Willm down quilted puffer jacket, $1,310, from Neiman Marcus.
Sure, fur will keep you warm in the mountains, but skip the natural shades of brown, white and black, instead add a few sophisticated pops of color. Suzana wears the Sloan patchwork fox fur vest, $598; zip sweater, $98; and Kira ski pant, $478, are all from Skea.
While this puffer that Adam wears (Donna Baldwin Agency) reverses to solid navy, we like the wide, bold color blocked stripes. Kenzo down jacket, $665, and Expedition ski pants, $280, from Neiman Marcus; Vuarnet Glacier sunglasses, $640, Queen City Optical Provisions.
Stand out on the slopes in vibrant hues such as cherry red, azure blue and canary yellow. Charger jacket, $429, and Lean ½-zip base layer, $99, both by Obermeyer, obermeyer.com. Eve down jacket with fox fur trim, $578, Andy top, $92, all from Skea.
With inspiration taken straight from the fall runways, Moncler brings the dramatic dark floral print trend to a cropped jacket. The Moncler Koura reversible down-quilted puffer jacket, $2,170; Veronica Beard Jeans turtleneck, $178; and Moncler ski pants, $745; are all from Neiman Marcus. Chaos Sailer acrylic beanie $18.99.
