This post will show you the cutest ski fashion items to look amazing on your next ski vacation.
I’m no expert, but skiing seems to me like the definition of a socially distanced sport. First of all, you are basically wearing a hazmat suit. In the cold weather, people barely have skin exposed — I mean, we even cover our heads and faces. Secondly, if you’re too close to each other, you’re probably crashing. Lastly, while yes when getting on the ski lift people could end up too close to each other, you have two poking sticks to make sure everyone is standing 6 feet away from you.
But I might be biased, I’ve grown up skiing, and always looked forward to family trips to the mountains. You know the feeling of losing your toes to frost bite, falling downstairs in your ski boots, and dragging around your skis like a dwarf from Snow White. How could we miss all that fun?
Honestly, there is nothing quite like the feeling of the speed and the rhythm of skiing. Not to mention, you don’t have to care about makeup or your hair because no one will see it anyways. And the food!! There’s something about starving for three hours while exercising that just makes mountain tavern food taste amazing. And if you’re in Europe, you can get hot chocolate that is literally straight up melted chocolate.
And if skiing isn’t your thing, you can always try snowboarding. If sports aren’t your thing, you don’t have to wait until after skiing to enjoy après ski. It is THE fashion event of the season. I’m loving the new ’80s in Aspen trend, which also happens to be my favorite frat party theme (it may have something to do with the fact that I am very prepared for it).
So, what do you wear on the slopes? What do you wear après the slopes? Well, the wonder of winter is that you quite literally need many layers of clothes. You can’t be catching a cold, after all.
Below, I’ve rounded up the pieces you need for the best ski wardrobe ever. I’ll be honest, skiing isn’t a cheap sport and neither is its equipment, but the items below will last you for many years to come.
Here are all the runway-worthy slope fashion items you’ll need for a weekend social distancing in the mountains.
