Fashion trends are just as seasonal as snow on the mountain for skiers and snowboarders. The biggest problem: How do you look stylish while also being comfortable? Don’t fret, we have you covered on all the tips and tricks to make sure you glide down the mountain with ease while looking fabulous. Here is a complete style guide to your 2019 fashion trends that turn practical into trendy.
Thankfully the 80s aren’t making a comeback and there is no need for neon on the mountain this year. Monochrome black is the dominant color scheme this season but try to mix it up by adding some grey and white to your look. This theme is anything but gloomy and besides, who doesn’t look good in black? Try to find a black patterned jacket with hints of white and you’ll be good to go. If you want to make a statement on the slopes try adding a bright pink or red hat, gloves, or scarf to add a pop of color. The best part? Your comfiest snow gear always comes in black.
Bib Ski Pants
A major 2019 trend that is being recycled from the 90s—and maybe your childhood—are bib ski pants. However, this isn’t your mothers ski pants. New fabric and style technology have changed the fit, comfort, and appearance to be lightweight and supportive. Bib ski pants are officially mainstream for both men and women because of its new flexibility with stretch that leaves you feeling more comfortable. This stylish new trend is a blessing for when those wipeouts occur and snow seems to find every little crevice. Make sure to put this hot item on your wish list this winter season.
These days it’s easier than ever to find an elegantly-fitted and slope-ready jacket without compromising your style. The key thing to think about is the material. Whether you enjoy après ski or some rough-and-tumble on the mountains, the perfect winter coat this 2019 must have smart wool. High-tech, sustainable, and lightweight smart wool is the insulating material both men and women need. If you want to flare up your look, faux fur is still in style to line your hood, cuffs, and collars
Goggles are one of the most essential pieces in your bag. Cylindrical wraparound goggles—say that three times fast—are taking the slopes by storm for equipment trends this 2019 season. These goggles have incredible new features and technological improvements like magnetically attached lenses, updated prism technologies, and battery powered light filters to make your trip down the slopes crisp and clear without compromising your style. Make sure to grab a pair for an enhanced experience.
