The ski season has started, and if you are planning to head for the slopes you are going to want to look your best and make sure you are sporting this season’s latest trends. Let’s be honest – no one will be watching your carving turns or examining your mogul technique if they are admiring your ski wear!
Fashion trends for the 2014-2015 ski season are going back to nature. Colours are blue hues and earthy tones with plaid, cargo and ethnic prints. Splashes of pink and faux-fur trims complete the trends.
Here are some of the most stylish ski jackets on the market.
Salomon Women’s Icetown Down Faux Fur Jacket | This lovely sky blue jacket is insulated with soft down to keep you warm even on the iciest chair lift. With its faux-fur-lined collar and feminine shape, it’s as much of a fashion statement as a functional garment.
Peak Performance Men’s Heli Chilkat Jacket | Another blue jacket, it’s designed with free skiing in mind. It allows freedom of movement and sports multiple pockets. It also has long ventilation zips if you want to cool off after all that free skiing.
Helly Hansen Alpha Ski Jacket Men’s | Breathable and waterproof, this lime green jacket will keep you warm in freezing conditions and cool during activity. It’s a good-value and good-looking option.
Animal Trails Snow Jacket | A stunning-looking women’s ski jacket in black with a large flower print. Insulated, waterproof and breathable, it features an adjustable hood with a faux-fur trim which you can remove should you so desire.
O’Neill Utility Snow Jacket | An earthy avocado green colour, this men’s ski jacket really does go back to nature. With Thinsulate insulation and lots of attention to comfort details, it’s likely to be a popular sight in Europe’s ski resorts this season.
Spyder Men’s Leader Ski Jacket | Spyder is one of the coolest ski wear brands around. This is available in volcano/black or black/green, and your skiing may have to live up to the brand in this case.
Colara Women’s Faux Fur Trim Snow Jacket | This pretty jacket has a white-coloured base with a neat pink/blue/grey/black striped print. Its embossed fleece lining will keep you warm, and the detachable faux-fur hood trim keeps it bang on trend.
