Ski Fashion Trends This Season
A ski break doesn’t mean you have to leave your sense of style behind. There are many ways you can make your look more fashionable, whilst still being warm, whether you are heading to Meribel, Lech, or other popular ski spots. Celebrities are key to figuring out the trends on the slopes – but how can you adapt these looks for your own wardrobe? We’ve put together some ideas for the 2014- 2015 season.
Animal prints and patterns
Gwen Stefani was seen at the start of the year wearing a military-inspired coat, a leopard-print sweater, and fitted black ski pants. You could add some of her adventurous style into your own look with animal print goggles or go more out there with an animal print jacket.
We also love this two-piece ocean inspired suit. If you don’t want to make such a bold statement, choose either a patterned jacket or trousers and pair them with a block coloured print item like the Berskha Snow Anorak. Bershka’s skiwear range has a fresh, young feel so it’s perfect if you want a trendy look.
It’s the time of year when everyone is on a LBD (little black dress) diet, so why not go for a LBS (little black suit)? This will make you look super slim in snow gear. Kim Kardashian is often spotted on the slopes with monochromatic head-to-toe ensembles. Luckily for you, if you are going for this it is one of the easiest ski outfits to pull off.
Her sister Kourtney has also opted for black with her motorcycle parka – a fantastic slope-to-bar look – while Victoria Beckham’s black head band, black jacket and white trousers add a touch of class to her ski action.
Faux fur collars and fur-trimmed gloves are proving popular this season and they are classic, cosy items favoured by the likes of Pixie Lott. We adore the Eider Kensington jacket, which comes with duck down filling and a fur collar, plus the sophisticated black Roxy Snowstorm Jacket.
Make a statement
If monochrome is not for you, never fear as bright colours are very much in fashion for 2014-15 too. Red and burnt orange ski trousers have been seen on celebrities like Kate Hudson, who also sported a red knit beanie. Check out the pink trousers by Roxy and the Bershka Snow Trousers, or go for a bright jacket to follow in the fashion footsteps of Pippa Middleton who wore a bright orange hat and red jacket during a charity cross country skiing event.
Après ski downtime
Indoor wear for après ski could include everything from onesies to Christmas jumpers. Designer Stella McCartney has produced a cute Owl Christmas Sweatshirt, perfect for warming up with a hot chocolate after a morning on the slopes.
So there is no excuse not to be the fashion icon of the slopes and nail the after ski style, whilst you are enjoying a drink in fun-packed resorts.
