Going on a ski trip this Winter Break? Looking forward to spending day after day with your friends and family zooming down the beautiful snow-covered mountains? Not sure what you’re supposed to wear when you’re completely exhausted after a long day on the slopes? That’s where we come in.
Anyone who has ever skied or snowboarded can agree: After a full day of run upon run, there is nothing you want more than to curl up in the lodge and drink a warm coffee by the fire. Yet this burning desire for snuggly comfort often leaves us fashion-conscious with a dilemma: How do we maintain our style while optimizing relaxation? We have a few tips:
1. Take it Easy in a Chunky Sweater
Opt for a free-flowing, chunky sweater. After being zipped up in layers upon layers of thermals and jackets, you’ll want nothing more than to be wrapped in a warm, loose sweater. Here are some we think are sure to keep you cozy and cute:
