Ski Fashion 2017: This Ski Season's Essentials

Whether you're hitting the slopes for the skiing - or to see and be seen - there is plenty of opportunity to make a statement with ski fashion. Celebrities, royals, politicians and pop stars all make for the slopes once the season starts – followed, of course, by the paparazzi. As a result, ski fashion now comes in all shapes, varieties, colours and designs, from high-end Fendi stirrup pants, to cost effective and cool Rab ski gloves.

Here are some of the most essential ski fashion trends this year:



Waterproof, warm and lightweight, it's no wonder that Moonboots have been experiencing a rise in popularity. These vintage style classics were first sold in the 1970s and still have a cool, retro aesthetic. Even temperatures as low as -31°F can't defeat these stalwart boots, which also come in a range of fashion forward colours, including red and lime green.

Animal print

Gwen Stefani has been pioneering animal print in the snow for years but this season its going mainstream. Choose bold zebra stripes or leopard spots - it's all about the animal print this season. From high street stores, through to high-end boutiques you'll find animal print ski fashion just about everywhere, we even featured it in our ski lessons infographic!

Dungaree salopettes

Dungarees make an appearance on at least one fashion catwalk every season and now they're becoming a hot topic in ski fashion too. Dungaree salopettes are flattering, comfortable and a bold choice in a world full of regular old ski pants. Find a faux fur lined pair and they are super cosy too.

Bold base layers

Fuchsia, peach, orange and lime green are just a few of the colours to choose from when it comes to your base layers this season. In days gone by it was a choice between black, grey, perhaps cream but now the trend is the brighter the better. Falke is the brand of choice for slope fashionistas in 2017

Statement goggles

Perhaps unsurprisingly, a desire for labels has made its way off the catwalks and into the snow as high-end goggles become an even bigger trend than usual this season. We're talking super high-end fashion labels, as opposed to the classic ski names – Lacroix darling, Lacroix.
