You can certainly express your individual style on the ski slopes, so why not make heads turn? Of course, it’s most important to stay warm and dry, but why not add a little flair to your outfit and grab a couple of double-takes as you're skiing down the mountain?
Here are some of the latest fashion-forward ski styles that accomplish both warmth and sophistication:
Extreme-Tex Stretch Ski Jumpsuit by Prada
Designed for high performance, this ski jumpsuit is made of stretch Extreme-Tex, an innovative fabric created by Prada and born from the desire to combine cutting-edge textile technologies with eco-sustainable manufacturing methods. Made of post-consumer recycled polyamide yarns, the triple-layer fabric is breathable and resistant to water and wind and completed by an internal Graphene®️ membrane. The goose down and Graphene® padding ensures high thermoregulation capacity, with antibacterial properties. Retails for US$4,406.
GORE-TEX Big Mountain Ski and Snowboard Jacket by Sentinel
Equipped to handle the vertical aspects of big mountain skiing, this Sentinel jacket is built for freeride touring. Patterning and features align to deliver optimal freedom of motion, breathability and protection. WaterTight™ armpit zips give rapid ventilation on traverses and ascents, and the integrated powder skirt delivers a secure fit in deep powder. Easily accessible pockets provide security, even with a pack on. The helmet compatible StormHood™ cinches securely, giving full coverage and exceptional visibility. Slide’n Loc™ attachments link to the Sentinel pant, creating a snow proof system that works as a single unit. Retails for US$800.
SKPR Jacket and Bib Pant by Rossignol
Born in the French Alps in 1907, Rossignol has been an icon of the ski heritage. Since 1996 the brand has designed premium technical outerwear that pays homage to its French roots. The SKPR 3L jacket and bib, one of the best ski outerwear kits this year, is a three-layer combo stitched with four-way stretch fabric, taped and sealed and it boasts above a 45K waterproofing rating. The jacket also features a helmet compatible hood, longer sleeves to cover the tops of your mitts and slick zipper and pocket placement. The oversized silhouette of the jacket and bib will make people ask, “Whoa… is that actually Rossignol?” The SKPRs are made from one of the most incredible fabric membranes on the market: Sympatex, which is 100% waterproof and windproof, and essentially breathes with you as you wear it for best-in-class temperature regulation on a day of riding. The two pieces retail for US$1,350.
Sargans Knit Sweater and Skistar Ski Pants by Goldbergh

Convertible Snow Mantra for Angel Chen by Canada Goose
Angel Chen‘s signature style and creativity meets the Canada Goose performance DNA.

Chen put her mark on the company’s original Snow Mantra developed for temperatures in the coldest regions on the planet.

This jacket is a head-turner. Retails for US$1,695.
Teton Ski Jumpsuit by Cordova
Cordova says they’ve mixed two parts Bond girl with one part supermodel, and got the Teton ski jumpsuit. “She heli-skis to the lodge, and takes her drink shaken, not stirred. She cinches and snaps to contour each unique body.” Waterproof and breathable, the jumpsuit goes well with any base layer. An adjustable belt with belt loop locker, belted saddle bag, and oversized drop shoulders complete the design. Retails for US$1,850.
Ski Goggles by Gucci
These ivory, orange and pink ski goggles bearing the Gucci logo are colorful and fashion-forward. Polycarbonate mirrored lenses cut down on the sun’s glare and you can even have your eyeglasses prescription put into these. Retails for US$590.
Zero G Peak Carbon Ski Boots by Tecnica
Renowned for performance-driven boots, Tecnica has found recent success creating boots for exacting backcountry skiers. Tecnica Zero G Peak Carbon, Zero G Peak and Zero G Women’s now provide superior performance on both the ascent and descent on long-haul missions where every bit of weight matters. The entire Zero G Peak collection features a totally unique, zig-zagging, semi-overlapping design, helping skiers to better control deformation of the lower shell. The boot is designed to feel stiffer than most boots in this category and will hold its shape better on the downhill despite its feather weight.
