The rise of après-ski fashion is not only evident at the foot of the track, but is also extrapolated to street style. The après-ski fashion that conquers Baqueira, Aspen, or St. Moritz has left the ski location and moved to the cities with thick knit sweaters, furry coats, sheepskin jackets, and typical prints from the Andes; all of them are garments that evoke that moment when you leave your skis behind after a day of snow and sun.
But what’s the secret to nailing this look? Find the balance between the basics of this wardrobe and the pieces that are part of the uniform for this sport discipline. How? Play with clothes (combine a colorful border sweater with a tulle skirt) and with accessories (add a wool cap to an outer garment suitable for enjoying a day in the snow).
So, are you one of those who will go to the white mountains soon and still don’t know what hat to pack in your suitcase? If so, don’t worry. Here are some of the essential items to keep in mind when trying out this trend.
The clothes with a vintage attitude inspired by the world of skiing in the late 70s have become a place of honor among many influencers. There are many ski companies that have made the red, white, and blue trinomial their flag, evoking past decades with more urban style garments.
Contrast with the Landscape
Just like on the catwalk, the world of skiing is governed by its own style rules. It is no coincidence that waves of skiers slide down the slopes wearing the most vibrant shades. The explosion of color, with fluorine tones, is positioned at the top of the mountain of trends to create interesting contrasts with the white of the landscape. Given its success, it is clear that après-ski garments were not going to be the exception.
The Most Sophisticated Slope
Although vibrant colors are what prevail at the foot of the track, you cannot leave completely behind the great classics. The black-and-white combo, faux-fur coats, luxurious textures, and huge sunglasses slip into the après-ski fashion. Think of Audrey Hepburn in “Charade” as an inspiration.
You just have to consider two major rules: The garments should be huge and eye-catching. Thus, faux-leather coats are a perfect choice and the faux-fur boots consolidate their reign on the snow.
Ready to hit the slopes? Or maybe just a dinner out on a cold night? Now, you’re ready to show up in style!
