How to Look Cool in the Snow; Fashion Vicky Pepys Sees in the Start of the Skiing Season

Article excerpt

Byline: Vicky Pepys

THERE'S been lots of talk on how the world's climate changes and general warming-up will affect skiing - will there be any snow?

Well, yes there will be this ski season, in fact according to the highly thought of website www.welove2ski.com, there's going to be quite a bit of it, and instead of the where shall we go for the snow? the question is more likely to be where would we like to go? because the snow will definitely be everywhere!

The Ski look whether worn on piste or on the pavement is a great look for winter generally, it makes the most un-sporty of us look ever so slightly 'active' even though we would shy away from the slippery slopes in reality.

Technological advances in fabrics and garment construction, means most of the outerwear garments are waterproof, yet breathable and will keep us dry and warm. We've learned that base layers are the most important garments above all others, natural 100% Merino wool winning hands down over man made fibres, mostly because of, well, perspiration pong!

Preparation is key. A visit to the experts, and there are plenty of them, at our specialist stores like the newly opened Berghaus in the MetroCentre, LD Mountain Centre or Snow+Rock, will help plan the ski wardrobe and explain the necessity of layering and the potentially lifesaving advances in the I designs. The coolest looks are the ones that keep you toasty.
