There’s no doubt about it: summer is an amazing season. But those of us who love to ski and snowboard eagerly anticipate winter as well. You might think you’ll be too bundled up at the ski resort to look fashionable, but the fact is, you can look just as stylish on your winter getaway as you do on your summer escapes. Pack these ten essential pieces into your bag and you’ll be ready to hit the town along with the slopes.
1. Boots that are cute and practical. Invest in a pair you can wear outdoors during the day and wear with a long sweater and a pair of leggings at night. There are plenty of boots out there that are durable enough for snow and stylish enough to wear to dinner. Finding a versatile pair you love will save you space to pack more essentials.
2. Pretty long underwear. It exists, and a cute printed thermal will keep you cozy all day and look darling peeking out from underneath your v-neck sweater at night.
3. Our Studded Zig Zag Cuff. Pop it on with your evening ensemble and watch it enhance the entire outfit. This chic jewelry is versatile, stylish and both trendy and timeless. Who says boho style jewelry is limited to summertime?
4. Several sweaters. The sweater is to a ski resort what the sundress is to a beach resort. You’ll want one for every evening, but you’ll also love having options if you take a long lunch break or hit the town for some shopping. Take a few long pullovers, chunky sweaters and cardigans to wear with your leggings, jeans and skinnies.
5. Stylish, warm accessories that will complement your ski clothes and your street clothes. Think hats, gloves, scarves and ear muffs in basic black, tan or trendy cobalt blue.
6. A Leatherette wrap. Since our Leatherette can be worn three ways, it already makes a perfect pick for a vacation. But this versatile, soft, stylish accessory adds instant sophistication to jeans and a sweater, making it a great choice for a ski resort. Wear your Leatherette as a necklace and the Zig Zag Cuff on your wrist when you go out for the evening and you won’t need any more jewelry.
7. Polarized sunglasses. They look great on the slopes and they’ll give your sweater and jeans look a bit of attitude. Winter sunshine can be surprisingly harsh, so pack a polarized pair.
8. A fleece jacket. Save the heavy, waterproof coat for the slopes and wear a cozy but chic fleece layer when you’re out and about.
9. Fuzzy socks for when you head to bed. This goes without saying!
10. Board games or other activities. You’ll want to relax by the fireplace after a day spent skiing or snowboarding, and making new friends is always in style.
