Style Tips for Skiing Holidays

Hitting the slopes soon? Looking stylish without compromising on functionality doesn't have to be an uphill struggle. Let us show how you can look...

uber stylish on the piste without compromising on comfort, and remain very cool while sipping your Gluhwein.

  • Trousers

Thankfully, a time has come when style and substance can exist side by side in ski wear, and nothing demonstrates this more than the modern ski pants. Now you find ones that fit like your favourite jeans - a slim fit cut that doesn't compromise on comfort for all that bending and swishing. Sweaty Betty, have some excellent choices in this season's fashionable bright colours for £120 and H&M have some great options in grey with peach trimmings for £39.99. Stella McCartney for Adidas have some gorgeous figure hugging options in cobalt blue for £140. This year the modern salopettes have been reinvented with a figure fitting cut and detachable top, so you can wear them as trousers when you feel like a change of form. Sweaty Betty have fun orange and blue ones for £249 which are bound to get you noticed.

  • Jacket

This piece will be the hardest working piece of your wardrobe during your action packed adventure. You want something that is warm, windproof, but also light and breathable. However, even the bravest action girl doesn't have to compromises on style. This year, jackets are fitted and bright bright, bright, so there is nowhere to hide. On the high steet, Topshop, TK MAX, Rip Curl have some very lovely print and bold hello and pink options - all for under £100. Stella McCartney for Adidas have some great stylish and very warm options from £220-265, LAMB for Burton, and O'Neills also have a lovely range from £150-£250.

  • Layers

It's vital to layer up to keep frost bite away - and choose wool not cotton as it won't insulate if your top gets wet. Opt for thin thermal layers like a long sleeved top, or a thin hooded jumper and leggings. On the high street Uniqlo is best by far and has a wide range for under £20. John Lewis also has some colourful choices.

  • Accessories

Thick socks are a must - even the most stylish of mavens need warm toes. North Face, and O'Neills have plenty to offer. Gloves are also vital and can be found at John Lewis for under £20 or at Sweaty Betty. For your eye catching goggles and sunglasses - Oakley is hard to beat. They won't fog up, leaving you to find your way safely home or very importantly to the nearest bar for some apres-ski. Beanies, Thick Wool Hairbands, and Snoods are a fantastically fun way to top off your slope look and Topshop, River Island, and Sweaty Betty have some stylish choices.

  • Apres-Ski Style

When the day's action is over, don't slump into a heap in the corner, quickly substitute your ski pants for a pair of edgy faux leather trousers over your thermals. This will give you an instant style advantage over several soggy bottomed skiers who haven't bothered to change. Zara and French Connection have some great options for £40. Slip a faux fur over your wool layers. ASOS, Zara, and River Island all have some lovely chic options for under £80. For a fun finish add some earmuffs or shades.

  • Apres-Ski Boots

All the obvious rules for apres-ski boots apply - non-slip and waterproof. I'm afraid this is one of those rare occasions when we at NHJ Style must banish high heels! Moon Boots are more statementy of the pack and Uniqlo have some striking ones in red for £69.99. Stylish navy, white and red snow boots can be found at North Face for £99.99. Saloman is another popular go to option for avid skiers.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
