When it comes to going on a chic ski vacation, it’s imperative to look good both on and off the slopes.
Guest blogger, Sarah Walter founder/md at style-passport.com, solves our ‘what to pack’ dilemmas and shares her guide to this season’s hottest winter fashion essentials for a stylish ski escape.
When planning your pack for your stylish ski trip you always have to start with the jacket. There’s nothing more space hogging than considering a ski jacket for the slopes and then needing another for evenings out. Barbour’s Mercury down bomber jacket solves both scenarios perfectly and is at the top of my ski list.
For warmth and practicality, I’m a huge believer in layering and recommend Petit Bateau’s onesy as your ultimate foundation garment, which works under your salopettes during the day and then when relaxing in the chalet at tea time.
Slip on some of Hunter’s slipper socks for luxe cabin comfort; with Antik Batik’s Totem fur trimmed gilet you’ll really show off your style credentials.
Boots are imperative and ASH’s Zebroska boots are my ski choice for practical chic footwear; their wedge grip heel provides that bit of elongation to your legs without compromising safety on the ice and snow!
I have never liked ski goggles, perhaps I don’t ski fast enough to really need them, so I prefer Ray-Ban’s polarized lenses to protect my eyes and guard against ‘panda eyes’.
Manbi’s lip and sun cream combo protects my face all day long and its handy cord ensures it’s always there when I need it.
I am a huge fan of accessories really making a difference and in the case of a ski wardrobe there is so much choice. Inverni’s Nordic hat with ear flaps will keep you warm day and night and is a great conversation starter.
Sonia by Sonia Rykiel’s stripey gloves are really special and the ideal winter gift and last but not least I always pack a Missoni scarf for that chic European touch.
