Stylish Snow Gear

First published on Stylizen on July 16 2014

Now the snowy season has kicked in, we Aussie’s like to the make the most of our home-grown powder (if you can call it that…). Whether you’re jetting off to Aspen or driving down to Hotham, nothing beats the first sight of snow! The whole experience is magical – I love the adrenaline of conquering a new run, enjoying the view from the chair lifts, discovering new sights off-piste and of course, relaxing post-skiing by the fire.

For those who love the activity as much as I do, it’s a relief that the daggy snow gear of days gone by is just that – a thing of the past. Now it’s all about sleek but functional items that keep you looking good just as much as they keep you warm.

For men, keep it simple with neutral colours that offer just a flash of colour in the details. Girls, choose one bright colour for the bottom half and plain on top for a chic and elegant snow-time look. Going with trusted surf and snow brands like Billabong, Volcom, Rip Curl and Quicksilver means you know you’re getting practical pieces that will prepare you for whatever the slope has in store.

Of course if skiing isn’t quite your thing, you don’t have to miss out on all the action! Let’s face it, dressing the part is half the fun. Go on, make yourself comfortable in the chalet café with a decadent hot chocolate, and don’t skimp on the marshmallows. You’ve earned it!
