Ski season is fast approaching in the southern hemisphere and the quickest way to update your on-snow outfit is with a new pair of goggles.
While it’s important they tick all the practical, high tech boxes (like UV protection and anti-fog technology, which are both a must) there are plenty of choices for fashion-savvy slope-goers too.
Whether you’re a rookie skier just learning to snow plough, an adrenaline junkie snowboarder or simply love making big snow angels in the powder at the bottom of the mountain, you’ll find a pair of high-functioning goggles you love in our edit of the most stylish on offer this season.
