Ski jackets can only mean one thing... It's ski holiday season. Bring on the snow and the alpine sports as nothing is more exciting than the prospect of 'shoop shoop'-ing (to quote Friends) down a mountain.
But gone are the days of flouro one-pieces (we say that with some wist), now you can hit the slopes in style - on any budget.
Many of the high street giants, including Topshop and H&M have ski collections, while the practical weather trend on the catwalk (think Tommy Hilfiger's AW14 collection) translates perfectly for those apres-ski looks.
Though ski trousers are necessary, we all know women's ski jackets are where the style points are really at. Whether you're looking for a retro-inspired cinched-in number to avoid your silhouette being blanketed in swathes of down, or if silhouette-swathing sounds like your thing, there's a whole host of androgynous-fit snowboard style jackets.
For this winter, the prints and designs are better than ever. As usual, Roxy have their colourful offering - with a few more on-trend options for the skiing fashionista, including leopard print and pastels. Stella McCartney too has a select but fashion-forward array of colours and experimental cuts.
