boy, have i got a treat for you. for this installment of wear in the world, annie of insideology is taking us all skiing in the french alps! in annie's own words...
Skiwear has come a long way since the 1980s when we had no choice but to buy coordinating lilac outfits from C&A (long defunct bargain basement UK fashion retailer). Today we can mix and match to our heart’s content, with Salomon, The North Face, Oakley, and super cool Finnish brand Napijiri. Warmth is, of course, the order of the day but that’s no excuse for a lack of imagination. For me, it’s hard to resist adding a little Nordic tweeness, a little folksy Sarah Lund-ness to the ensemble. Inject a little eccentricity to your outfit to show that you’re not taking yourself too seriously. Thermals are a must, but they have to be merino wool, no icky synthetic fibres please, and although I think red lipstick on the slopes is going a little too far, surely a bit of tinted lip balm wouldn’t hurt anyone?
in real life, annie recently embarked on a skiing holiday in the french alps to celebrate her birthday. the trip looked equal parts amazing and dreamy as she provided real time updates via her blog. if you want to read more about annie and her faulous trip, make to sure to visit insideology.
thanks for playing wear in the world, annie! now we are guaranteed to look stylish on our next snow trip. did we forget anything? what are your must-haves for snow weather?
