As we gear up for our winter holidays, it’s time to plan the bigger things: your ski wardrobe.

From chic aprés ski sweaters to high-performance wear for shredding the black diamonds, here are our top items to wear when you hit the fresh powder this February.

The 1980s all-in-one snow suit is back in full force and we found just the one to add instant sophistication. This sleek form-fitting suit by Sportalm has a contrasting metallic shoulder finish and a removable fur trim hood. Plus it allows free movement with its 4-way stretch material, keeps you warm with the fleece lining, and is both waterproof and wind resistant.
Athletic eyewear brand Dragon creates cool designs including these iridescent X2 ski goggles. The lightweight frames are padded with triple-layered foam and even encourages airflow to prevent fogging. This pair also comes with interchangeable lenses so you can switch when the weather conditions change, or swap out for a different look.
Keep frostbite at bay with these chic, yet extremely practical, Canada Goose gloves. Designed to be lightweight and functional, these down-filled gloves also protect you from winter’s biting chill. They also have touch screen capabilities so you can use your index fingers to take the best ski selfies without ever taking them off.
After a long day of skiing, it’s time for aprés ski. We’re loving the retro style winter wear by French-born brand Perfect Moment and this bold merino wool sweater will definitely make you stand out in the crowd. Featuring a rolled turtle neck, intarsia stripe and ski motif, this is the cosy long sleeve that you’ll want to wear every season.
The Ecrins puffer jacket by Moncler Grenoble is where style meets performance. For style, the belt creates a flattering feminine silhouette while a faux fur collar glams up the whole look. For high performance, the jacket’s two-way stretch twill enables a suitably warm, windproof and water-repellant experience on the slopes.
Other than style, performance is key on the slopes. These Pippa pants by luxury sports brand Goldbergh offer exactly that: an athletic skinny fit that provides the support you need during intensive training and skiing sessions. It’s also constructed with three layers of fabric, so you’re well protected from the extreme weather, too.
Après ski activities call for footwear that is just as sturdy as your ski boots. Fendi‘s T-Rex ankle boots do the job with its durable leather and rubberised soles with carved tread, ensuring you stay surefooted on slippery surfaces. What’s more the monogrammed canvas and creamy shearling lining keep you comfortably warm and looking cool at the same time.
