To achieve ski style, we propose a few pointers that will keep you firmly on-piste in the fashion stakes. Indulge in silhouettes that are retrofuturistic, elevated to peak chic with colourful and kitsch finishes. This approach should extend into your apres-ski wardrobe, where snug, patterned pieces pack a punch – such as oversized intarsia cardigans by Woolrich or Napapijri, for example. Additionally, the best skiwear lets you dial up your inner dandy. Think colour-blocked capes by Botter, and knitwear and shirting in a spectrum of head-turning tones.

A bold accessory will always draw attention on the slopes, and taps into A/W 2021’s penchant for bright, colour-blocked tones. Prada provides leather gloves in turquoise, complete with a tiny triangle-motif pocket, while Stone Island and 3 Moncler Grenoble opt for protective styles in pillar box-red or bottle green. Missoni has warming options, such as a range of knitted kaleidoscopic beanie hats in the brand’s signature chevron stripes and graphic patterns. For more snow-inspired tones, Fusalp proposes ski boots in clean optic white.

Layering has long been a smart and protective styling tool and a winning way to stack up luxuriant looks. Think utilitarian check shirting, ribbed polo-necks and even Prada’s eye-popping intarsia knit bodysuit, which was a standout on the Milanese label’s A/W 2021 runway. 

When it comes to the best skiwear, safety is always as paramount as style. Protect yourself with panache and sport goggles and a helmet on the slopes – chic options are available from brands including Monlcer Lunettes and Oakley. 

We also recommend taking a look at Giorgio Armani’s Neve collection, a ski-focused offering that first launched in the 1990s and features a range of elegant equipment pieces, spanning from salopettes to skis.

With these pieces, on or off the slopes, there’s no chance of a style wipeout. §
