Ski : Equipment & Style !
You go skiing and you want to be hot while keeping the style? Check out some tips ;) Generally, choose the superposition of thin layers of clothing, an ideal system to prevent cold air to circulate. Under the suit or jacket, polar proves its worth : it dries quickly and preserves heat, a big advantage when the temperature drops.
It should be known that the practical aspect must be your leitmotiv; to hit the slopes while being comfortable and protecting yourself from the cold! First tip: the multilayer! Start with a warm-turtleneck turtleneck to avoid low temperatures and wind. Embellished by a knit sweater, a fleece or a sweat and of course, a ski jacket. Here we are, we do not know which one to choose …
Yet it’s pretty simple:
Trend: 90’s quilted down jacket or a quilted and padded fitted jacket designed for this purpose over 70’s.
Vintage: the timeless red, navy blue, black will be perfect. Avoid white! it’s messy and if you have a problem, it will be hard to find you on the slopes!
Fantasy: a patchwork piece of very retro colors or just plain vinyl or gold or silver lamé.
As for the bottom, the multilayer is necessary to not be cold. Start by putting on a woolen tights (for example) or thick leggings. Pare this by pretty rising ski socks (patterned, fluos, vintage, there is something for all tastes); this will allow you to have warm feet but also to be comfortable in your ski boots. And that’s where the pants get in with the same question; which one to choose ?
Trend: the slipper pants of the 80s! It refines and curves your leg while keeping you warm.
Vintage: The jumpsuit overall! in color block or uniform, it will be a perfect look for sure!
Fantasy: You can wear patchwork pants but be careful, in these cases the ski jacket will be solid color not to look like the tapestries of yesteryear!
Strongly recommended for toddlers, the full ski suit : useful, it protects from the cold and with it no risk of snow entering the pant. You should focus on breathable and waterproof fabrics with synthetic materials ( Nylon or Gore-Tex, for example).
However, one drawback : the pee break may be more complicated (to unfasten buttons, braces…)
Essential, hat, hood and neck warmer in bi-stretch polar. Focus on the hood for budding skiers, more suited to the helmet. Particularly sensitive of cold, small hands need special attention. Avoid wool, it’s inappropriate to snow, prefer a waterproof material (Nylon or neoprene for example), so that the snow doesn’t penetrate and a breathable lining. Think of silk gloves under gloves and mittens : used as an insulating layer because they absorb a fairly significant amount of moisture and provide extra heat.
Don’t forget the mask or goggles to protect the child’s eyes from the glare of the sun. The mask is an ideal solution because it fits properly and doesn’t slide the nose. Check out the dual screens, which provide better ventilation and prevent the occurrence of fogging. For the glasses, choose a plastic frame, ideal for the practice of sports. Solid, they should be well wrapped to stop the wind nor the UV.
