SKIWEAR STYLE GUIDE
Whether you’re a seasoned skier or first-timer, what to wear skiing can often be overwhelming. Of course, you want to stay warm (and dry) when braving the cold, mist and snow, but you also want to look cool when hitting the slopes and après-ski scene. When packing for any alpine adventure, you should always consider two things: materials and layers. Choose to invest in quality, tested textiles that guarantee optimal performance and longevity — specialist insulation like PrimaLoft®, natural fibers and technical waterproof fabrics are what you should be checking for on the labels. Once fabrics and items have been selected, focus on layering. So, how many layers of clothes should you wear for skiing? There is no strict rule, but our suggestion is to follow the three-layer system: begin with a body-hugging base, follow up with a breathable mid-layer and top it all off with a hard-wearing outer piece. And, if that doesn’t keep the cold away, consult THE OUTNET’s checklist for a dependable supply of designer skiwear brands for less and other essential mountaineering gear you’ll need on your next ski holiday.

After a long day on the slopes, you’ll want to change out of your wet ski gear and into something more stylish. Your outfit needs to be bar-worthy but bear in mind that you’ll be walking there in the snow. So, for extra warmth and style points, opt for a coordinated set and throw on a padded snow-white jacket frosted with crystal details

The two most important considerations with ski pants: fit and fabric. They should retain their shape, allow you to move freely and always remain watertight, particularly when perfecting a parallel turn!
