Chic Skiwear

Tory Sport Chic Ski SweaterWith ski season upon us, it’s time to not only get your quads in shape for a long day of turns, but also to make sure your on-mountain wardrobe is on point. Finding functional and fashionable pieces that are able to take you from the lift to the lodge without the need for a costume change is the key. Thankfully, skiwear has never been chicer with both iconic and unexpected brands getting into the game, creating more options than ever for looking good on the hill.

Tory Sport’s “Ski” embroidered sweater is as adorable with a pair of jeans as it is with snow pants, while Aether’s vintage-inspired men’s ski sweater also transitions off the mountain with ease. And leave it to Arc’teryx and Kjus to make technically innovative jackets and pants without sacrificing super-clean design.

There are so many great options in snow gear this season, you may want to make sure you have more than one ski trip on the calendar. Here, we highlight a few of the pieces every male and female snow enthusiast needs this season.
