No Lift Ticket Necessary

Blog_ski_getaway

In my opinion, winter really only has two things going for it: holiday lights and hot spiked drinks. What of winter sports, you ask? I’ve attempted skiing on a handful of occasions, but it never really took. (Intense fear of heights and bodily harm probably played a part.) I am, however, a big fan of the ski bunny look.

A style perfected by that subset of fashionable women who descend on mountainous regions from Sundance to Gstaad around this time of year, this look brings a number of my favorites together, namely faux fur trim, fitted ‘70s-inflected puffer jackets, cozy sweaters, substantial leggings, and signature sunglasses. Oh, and of course a scarf looped around the neck in an effortless yet just-so manner.

And thankfully there’s no need to risk life and limb on a double black diamond run to work the look: it’s as appropriate for a chilly day in the West Village as it is for a stroll in a ski village.
