Looking Good On The Slopes? 4 Ski Essentials
Whether you’re still working on your technique on the green pistes or flying down the trails like a pro, we’ve got your 2014 ski wardrobe covered. Let your inner snow queen shine on and off the slopes with these 4 fabulous fashion finds.
1. Conquest Carly Boots
Taking its inspiration from Sorel’s iconic Conquest boot, the Conquest Carly Boot is its sophisticated friend. Sorrel keeps the promise of warm, cosy and fully waterproof footwear, but has topped it off with immaculate style that will sweep every fashion-oriented woman of her feet.
The lightweight boot is insulated with a full-grain leather and nylon upper rubber shell, which offers both durable protection from the elements on the outside and a smooth feel on the inside. They are indispensable on the slopes whilst conquering heavy snow, but they are also perfect for everyday adventures on wet city sidewalks.
2. Casco SP-3 Edelholz Helmet
An increasing amount of skiers are swapping their bobble hats for helmets, and with good reason. With the Casco SP-3 Edelholz Helmet you no longer have to choose safety over style as it is the perfect helmet to top off your carefully selected outfit.
Casco has incorporated real wood into its design and is one of the safest helmets currently on the market, according to The Telegraph. Furthermore, it will not only look fabulous when hitting the slopes, but also when cruising through the city on your Vespa.
3. North Face Baker Snow Jacket
It doesn’t really matter how cold it gets, as long as you know how to deal with it. When you find a jacket you would actually wear on and off the slopes, you know you have found the ultimate combination of fashion and function! The North Face Women’s Baker tailored jacket with a faux fur trimmed hood is our favourite.
You can still look the part on the slopes without breaking the bank. These affordable foldable Sunpocket sunglasses combine great design and functionality with a decent price and a splash of joy. As these are a French design, you’ll look especially cool when you are looking at ski holidays in the French Alps.
4. Shiny Sunpocket
The lightweight shade has 100 % UV-protection and the unbreakable lens works in all conditions, with a darker upper and lower part to protect from sunrays and the reflections from sea and snow. It comes with a suitable hard case and a silk bag and is available in plenty of tasty colours, such as Matt Vanilla, Matt Red, Shiny Tortoise and Gold.
