Here in Australia, we’re mainly known for our amazing surf beaches. But we also happen to have some pretty incredible spots for skiing and snowboarding, too! Now that winter is well and truly here, it’s the perfect time to head to the snow and ‘shred the gnar’ (as the cool kids say!)
Whether you plan to ski, snowboard to just drink mulled wine by the fire, you’re going to need some warm, comfortable theads. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style! With the right essentials, you can look chic and stay cosy when you hit the slopes.
Scroll through the gallery for the 9 essentials every snow bunny should have in their winter wardrobe:
1. The jacket
The North Face Connector Jacket is waterproof, windproof and insulated— so it’ll keep you toasty on the slopes while protecting you from the elements!
2. The boots
Look chic and stay cosy as you stomp around in the snow with the Winterburn NGX Snow Boots.
3. The thermals
Even if nobody else sees them, you’ll be snug and stylish with the Sweaty Betty Seamless Merino Leggings under your ski pants.
4. The gloves
Keep frostbite at bay with these cool, monochromatic rider gloves from Rip Curl.
5. The pants
Let’s face it — stylish snow pants just aren’t a thing. For fashion cred, opt for slim-fitting ski overalls like these ones from Sweaty Betty instead.
6. The snowboard
Want to get your very own snowboard, rather than just hiring one? The brightly coloured Lo-Fi Rocker from Rome Snowboards is one of the best in the biz.
7. The scarf
Add a pop of colour to your ski ensemble with the cashmere blend Alps Scarf from LNDR. Bonus, it also doubles us a wrap!
8. The beanie
Stay warm and look cool in the simple yet stylish Helvetica beanie from Stussy.
9. The goggles
Protect your peepers with the WM1 Goggles from Anon. Whether you’re into plain black, monochrome paisley or floral, there’s no shortage of different patterns and colour combos to choose from.
