#1 What to Wear to the Slopes

There’s no doubt you will have missed the moon boots filling our feeds, combing practicality and style ski fashion is in this season. After a long day of snow ploughs, we guarantee a feeling of euphoria when you slip into the Monaco moon boots and walk back to the chalet. Not only are they worn with head-to-toe skiwear Moon Boots are now the knee-high boot you can opt for if you are also braving the cold in fewer layers.

A trusty coat that you can keep on no matter where you are is also essential. Often for a skiing trip, it’s nice to opt for a bright colour or print that you can spot in the snow. You also want to make sure that they are technically advanced in order to keep you cosy, with Yves Soloman and Moorer being key brands to have on your radar.

#2 What to Wear on an Evening

Your salopettes, goggles and ski jacket will be firm favourites during the day, but you may be wondering what the protocol is for when you aren’t on the mountain. This is when you can ditch your heavy-duty ski wear and swap out your moon boots for some Diemme‘s and your thermals for polo necks and knitwear. Fur accessories and snoods are the perfect accessories for women this season with well-put-together staples for menswear such as the new standout knits from AMI Paris.

#3 How to Nail Après Ski Style

Après ski is a great opportunity to show off your style, take off your jacket and let down your braces. Remember you are still likely to be outside so layers are VERY important. Peeling back the layers will make going from mountain to après ski much smoother and not leave you in a hot mess.  Here are our favourite pieces for ski fashion this season.

#4 How to Accessories

In most cases, accessories are purely to enhance your outfit, but on a ski trip, they’re a necessity. Having easy access to your wallet, phone, keys, ski pass etc is vital, so a good bag will do wonders. You’ll also be eternally grateful for hats and gloves that will keep you warm but also look great teamed with your ski wear. Lastly, it’s never chic to be squinting on the slopes but more importantly, it could lead to an accident so make sure you have some sunglasses handy.
