The Best Clothes For Skiing, Snowboarding And Generally Looking Good On The Slopes

From warm all-in-ones to base layers.

LoveShackFancy x Bogner

by Lillian Sesiguzel |

After quite some time the mountains are finally calling!

With resorts opening their slopes after closing in early 2020, it's time to get excited about skiwear again (and après ski obviously).

You might be wondering where to go this year. Well, with the reopening of the French border there's plenty of resorts to choose from. According to a recent survey, Megève and Saint Gervais have been named as the best value for money, while Chamonix is the most Instagramable resort in Europe.

Before your trip it wouldn't hurt to compile a shopping list of all the things you might need to look and feel great on the slopes.

From green to black runs, beginners to expert, slopes to aprés, we've found the hardest working (and best looking) skiwear and accessories you will need on your next ski holiday.

You'll be up in that mountain air in not time, sipping on a rum hot chocolate.

Kill two birds with one stone with this scarf that doubles up as a face mask for protection. Featuring a concealed nose clip and adjustable elastic loop at ears.

HANRO, Woollen Silk Leggings, £87
5 of 21

If you're skiing in well below minus temperatures, then all you need are these silk cashmere leggings underneath your salopettes.

Drysure, Boot Dyers, £24.96
6 of 21

Maybe the most practical item in our gift guide - Ski Boot Dryers. If you've been skiing, you'll know that grim feeling when you put your boots on in the morning and they're still damp. These airers will allow the boot to dry overnight, not through heat but through ventilation, ultimately stopping exponential bacteria and fungal growth. What a thought.

Falke, Ski Socks, £28
7 of 21

The right ski socks are a must. Falke's padded ski socks are both supportive and comfy, with cushioning in the right spots for good protection when you're skiing.

Goldbergh, Salopettes, £339
8 of 21

Are they salopettes? Are the motorbike pants? Who knows. But we like them, a lot. The belt feature is great for those who know that salopettes have a tendency to fall down, especially when getting up and down and up and down from the chairlift. A hard life, we know.

My Sunday Ski, Ski Suit, £345
9 of 21

The Cinderella of ski suits. Picture the powder blue against the powder snow - magical isn't it?

Free People, Hotpow Topless Headband, £18
10 of 21

Keep your ears warm in this sweater-knit headband, perfect for making a statement at aprés!

Rokit Vintage, Ski Suit, £275
11 of 21

You can't get more retro than this vintage 80s Bogner ski suit. If you're interested in sustainability and second hand, remember to check car-boot sales and charity shops, too. Word to the wise, it's likely that whatever you purchase will no longer be waterproof, or was only water resistant when it was originally made, so get yourself some waterproof spray.

Adidas, Snow Goggles SP0039, £180
12 of 21

On the mountain, visibility is key. These adidas snow goggles keep your vision clear and your lenses fog-free.
