As schedules start to slow, we begin to savour the downtime that comes with the season. If an elegant cabin escape is in the cards, feeling fabulous during restful moments is as easy as rediscovering classic comforts – think a glamorous coat, a sumptuous sweater, and a super soft beanie – for wintry walks in a spectacularly serene setting.
Of course, building a wardrobe suited for bundling up in brisk weather requires a curated approach, especially when it comes to snowy ski retreats. Sporty looks, as well as après ski outfits, factor into suitcase selections.
To make the most of your options, revisit the art of layering with luxe fabrics, touchable textures, and striking outerwear that maintains peak sophistication while also trapping much-needed warmth. This winter, effortless glamour is in your grasp.
Sweaters and denim are a match made in heaven. The style BFFs solve many a closet conundrum by acing the elusive combination of casual and chic. If you’re looking for the perfect one to pack, consider Fabiana Filippi’s mohair version. The fingertip cardigan, fastened with a slim belt, has a neutral weave reminiscent of a scenic hilltop.
Fair isle is another classic chalet choice, and no one does it better than Autumn Cashmere. Whether you opt for a playful allover pattern or a subtler motif shot with contrasting crimson, there’s no wrong choice.
Combining sustainability and style, Smythe’s hand-knit turtleneck is crafted by indigenous Bolivian artisans using alpaca yarns. The statement-making floral can stand up to an equally forward pant, like a faux leather flare.
Tucking a camel cardigan into your carry-on is always a good idea. Thrown over your shoulders or layered with a body-hugging turtleneck, Eleventy's wool cable knit offers a hit of high fashion in a flash.
For cozy holiday hideaways, a single coat simply won’t do – planning a thoughtful collection of outerwear is key. Cross off your sporty parka with Parajumpers’ pearlescent knee-length puffer. It combines innovative technical details alongside a sleek body-skimming style. This is your go-to for stamping out the chill post-piste.
Afternoon shopping trips and evenings out require something more refined. With an exaggerated collar, reversible design, and decadent teddy texture, Hiso’s timeless shearling is right on target.
Alternatively, slip into Suprema’s chocolate-coloured shearling. Enveloped in its generous hood, you can delight in the stillness of each falling snowflake.
