When we think of the sports that have contributed to the state of contemporary fashion, we think of tennis, baseball, basketball — the big ones. Skiing doesn’t really get a look in. But, with the rise of technical styles and hiking looks, outdoor activities like skiing have never been in a better position to break through into the lifestyle sphere. That’s why we’re digging through our ski gear right now to see if any of it works.
A better idea, though, would be to head over to MATCHESFASHION where there’s a whole category dedicated to ski gear that caters to style as well as function. GORE-TEX builds with technical detailing like taped seams and waterproof zips aplenty, alongside down padding and other winter wonders — with the skiing season well underway, it’s about time you paid attention to ski gear.
Whether you’re looking for stuff to actually wear on-piste or hybrid pieces that work for après, we’ve got you covered.
Shop the best ski gear that works off the piste, too.
