In the debate about fashion versus practicality, Skiwear has always presented a bit of a grey area. This is because it has traditionally been difficult to find practical skiwear that has kept you warm and kept you ‘on trend’; the 80s day-glow skiwear in the picture below captures this point perfectly!
At the other end of the skiwear spectrum, if you stuck to your fashion roots, you ran the risk of freezing to death, due to a lack of protection from the elements.
However, this has all changed, as it is now perfectly feasible to blend practicality & fashion into piste-inspired skiing outfit (with a little help from us of course!). Below you will find a collection of some of our favourite pieces of skiwear that is both functional & stylish; this includes a range of ski jackets, ski goggles, ski gloves, ski salopettes & pants, and ski accessories.
WOMEN’S BLACK FUR COSSACK HAT
This black faux fur Cossack hat from BHS is exceptionally functional & stylish. This hat will help to keep your head warm whilst out on the slopes, and the fact that it is black will also allow you to experiment with bolder colours in other areas of your skiwear.
HELLY HANSEN WOMEN’S MOTION SKI JACKET
This Helly Hansen Ski Jacket for women uses their patented Helly Tech® breathable & waterproof fabrics, which is available in a super-stylish hot pink colour. The Helly Hansen Ski Jacket also has PrimaLoft® 133g Warmcore insulation, which will help to keep you protected in periods of low activity, or the most extreme of weather conditions.
TOG24 PURPLE TECH MERINO SKI SOCKS
These socks are designed specifically for use whilst skiing, but they also provide you with a burst of on-trend purple to gain you some extra style points on the slopes. They are made from a variety of different materials, which makes them incredibly comfortable, hard-wearing, and protective.
ROXY TORAH BIRCH PRINTED PANT
These ski pants by Roxy feature a floral print pattern, which are inspired by snowboarding icon Torah Bright. They may not allow you to snowboard as well as her, but they do have more technical features than you can shake a stick at; this includes a high-waisted powder skirt&mesh lined, which will the snow out & keep you warm.
SPY OPTIC BIAS BLACK ROSE SKI GOGGLES
