There are so many reasons why you should be making a quick dash to the snow fields this season: it makes for a fun road trip, great break away from the city, chance zoom down mountains or and is a perfect place to hang out with friends.
But for me, last weekend’s trip to Thredbo (where these pics were taken), was all about fashion on the runs. Whether you snow board, ski or just Apres, there is always a fashion-forward outfit option to suit.
Now, I love skiing, but there’s something extra cool about snowboarding fashion. After all, I’m told (by snowboarders mostly) that they have all the fun. I certainly did in this cool gear which proved high tech performance gear can still look feminine and fashion-savvy.
White pants aren’t necessarily practical (especially at the start of the Aussie snow season where there are still occasional dirt patches), but they do look stunning and suggest you’re really skilled at what you’re doing (and that you’re clever at strapping your board on without sitting down too!) Teamed with a statement jacket, highlighted with pops of colour (in my case pink and emerald green) and practical black boots (that you can wear with any colour, season to season) they’re ideal. Just be careful not to add too many patterns and hues – keep to two block colours (here, pink and green) on top of your black and white basics. Voila – you’re set to impress, on slope and apres!
What’s your favourite go-to snow look?
