Whether or not you plan on hitting the slopes this winter, there is always an excuse to tap into chic skiwear. Stylish ski essentials such as snow boots, jumpsuits, and ski jackets are critical for tackling the cold, no matter where you are. And since the aprés ski movement only seems to grow with each passing year, there is no better time than now to hop on board. The best part about the Aspen-inspired aesthetic is that the different elements add a luxurious vibe to your winter style. Ahead, I compiled all the necessary gear you need to nail the ultimate ski style on and off the slopes.
One of the most important components of ski chic style is your jacket. Whether you’re an easy-going solid color type girl or a graphic enthusiast, there is an outerwear style that suits your desires. I’m a proponent of splurging on brands with a reputation for cold weather wear, such as Moncler, Perfect Moment, SAM. and North Face. However, there are also plenty of budget-friendly options from ASOS.

There’s a time and place for cute leather boots, but you’ll want to swap them for snow-proof ones when in a wintery environment. A durable, insulated pair will go a long way in terms of ensuring you can stay snug all day long. If you are up for making a statement, metallic snow boots are more popular than ever this year.
Jumpsuit / Snowsuit
While ski pants are always an option, I have a newfound appreciation for the ski suit. This all-in-one piece does wonders in keeping you warm and dry, while simultaneously looking trés chic too. For some really cute, feminine options, Free People Movement has you covered on all of the basics.

Beanies and Scarves
No winter outfit is complete without a beanie or a scarf. You’ll want to have both when battling below-freezing temperatures. Fortunately, both make for an easy way to add a pop of color to your winter ensemble. Bonus points if you can coordinate your beanie to the scarf!

Sweaters have multiple purposes when it comes to ski chic style. I love using them to layer underneath a ski jacket and over a light ski layer – or to complete a cozy apres-ski look. Chunky cable knit sweaters or fairisle prints are fun ways to set the tone.
