From peak-performance gear to the ultimate après-ski outfits, discover THE OUTNET’S failsafe guide, filled with the know-how you need to complete your perfect dawn-to-dusk alpine ensemble.

JACKETS WITH FORM AND FUNCTION

A ski jacket is your main investment. Ensure that it is fitted with waterproof zippers and a snowskirt in the lowest part to prevent snow from seeping inside and getting your clothes wet. Don’t compromise on style (you’ll likely be in your jacket all day); invest in expertly cut designs by Fusalp, and more coveted brands for cuts that offer practicality and flair. Be sure to check for specialist insulation like PrimaLoft®, natural fibers, and technical waterproof fabrics on the labels, and always look for stretch panels that offer increased comfort and mobility.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE PANTS

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. Consider an all-in-one look – Perfect Moment has great options – to cover all bases.

APRÈS-READY

After a long day on the slopes, you’ll want to change out of your wet ski gear and into something stylish but comfortable. Knitwear is key when it comes to perfecting your slope-to-après-ski looks. Bold patterned sweaters from Cordova, We Norwegians, and more made from merino wool, cashmere or other insulating materials will serve you well post-holiday, throughout the winter months too. Round out your outfit with chic accessories, like wooly hats and scarves, and change into a luxe coat such as Chloé x Fusalp’s belted style for long evening walks from dinner dates to the chalet.
