Hit the ski slopes in style
Following a slower than normal start to the ski season in the Alps, the snow has finally arrived in full force. If you are planning to escape to the slopes over the coming months, we recommend Val d’Isere as one of the best resorts to visit. That said, we are jetting off to Austria at the end of January and Lech could end up becoming our new favourite European ski destination – so stay tuned!
For those who want to go further afield, Vail in Colorado is an excellent place for experienced skiers and Lake Tahoe in California is unlikely to have its beautiful vistas surpassed by many places in the world.
Once you have decided where to go for some ski action, it is time to organise your wardrobe. Staying warm should be your number one priority and there are plenty of stylish ski jackets on the market. Not only do you need to make sure you are as warm as possible, but there also needs to be flexibility in the style to allow for plenty of movement. We also love something a little bit unique that stands out from the crowd. Bogner is perfect for the job and this brand boasts striking attire – it is stocked in the UK at White Stone.
Stylish shades are a must for the bright white slopes, especially on a clear sunny day. Luxury sports company Lacroix is as great place to look if you want to buy top quality eyewear. The chic and sporty Liberty style is a real winner.
Whether you are a skier or a snowboarder will decide which fit of trousers you prefer. The latter variety of trousers often proves more comfortable and they are perfectly suitable for skiing too. However, if you want to stick with a traditional ski design, look no further than Spyder’s collection.
Helmets are essential is modern times; however, this doesn’t mean there is no place for a woolly hat! Whether you are stopping for lunch or taking time out to browse shops at resort, there will be plenty of opportunities to wear a stylish hat. Muse on the Kings Road has a great selection of bobble hats that include diamante and fur designs. They also have a good collection of other accessories, including snow boots for after hours.
