It’s winter sports season again, and as we all gear up for another pandemic January, hitting the slopes is more enticing than ever (even if après ski is more your style). Whether you prefer to dash through the Black Diamond or sip on some mulled wine by a crackling fire, your outfit should be as eye-catching as the scenic snow-capped landscape. Naturally, bold patterns and vibrant colours should find a way into your skiwear collection, while retro silhouettes add a stylish flair to the often utilitarian looks of high-performance sports gear (think Princess Diana’s style from the ’90s and Lady Gaga in House of Gucci for some inspiration). The best part? You can always source some vintage pieces to get the nostalgic look without spending a fortune.
From houndstooth ski suits to designer puffer vests and cashmere balaclavas, take in the fresh winter air with our roundup of the best skiwear and winter sports gear.
