Ski Resort Style
I learned a lot about chic ski resort style on my trip to Aspen last month. It was literally one of those moments where I opened my suitcase and thought “how the heck do I fashionably dress for the cold?” There is an art to chic winter dressing. It requires dealing with a number of different layers and accessories all while making sure you’ll be warm enough to handle the cold.
So I started doing some research on Pinterest to get some outfit ideas. I wanted my outfits to look extra polished, you know…the kind of look that says “yes, I know how to dress well” so I created my own Aspen Style Board. Here are a few style ideas for ultra fashionable ski resort style…..
A chic and easy outfit for the slopes is a monochrome look. I dressed in all white for our day of skiing. (And I quickly learned that makeup and the white collar of your jacket don’t get along. Just be careful if you decide to wear white.) You could do any color for a full monochrome look. Black and white are particularly easy colors to dress in. I love a good burgundy monochrome look as seen in this post.
Faux fur is also a great texture to add to any winter look. Plus, it’s super warm. I wore a few different faux fur hats, earmuffs, and scarves. My favorite being a black baby alpaca hat that I wore to the snow polo match. (Fun fact: Alpaca hair is like’s sheep’s wool – the animal is shorn, not harmed, to collect the hair.) It’s incredibly soft and warm. I had also purchased the hat in a beige color but did not get the chance to wear it for this trip.
I wrote about my love of all things fair isle in this post here. One could argue that it is THE winter pattern and comes on everything from mittens to hats, sweaters, and dresses. I ordered a few super cute and very warm fair isle mittens that are fleece lined. My favorite fair isle sweater that I am wearing in this post now 50% off!
Accessories such as sparkly stud earrings, lipstick, and nicely curled hair can take your ski slope style from a nine to a ten. It shows a little extra “put togetherness” and always makes an outfit more chic. Also, you don’t have to stick to pants and sweaters. There are plenty of adorable sweater dresses and capes or ponchos that add an element of sophistication. And even this western style wrap sweater that I want SO BADLY.
