The idea of apres ski fashion is totally glamorous, but the reality is you’re usually going straight from the slopes to wherever there’s beer, hot coco, and nachos covered in turkey chili. In other words, you’re sweaty, snow drenched, and in a million layers of ski gear. But apres ski is usually at some beautiful location on the top of the slopes with tons of insta-worthy vistas, and of course, where you can catch up with all the friends/family you ditched on the slopes (no friends on a powder day!) and trade stories. If you’re lucky, it’s also nice and sunny so you can shed some of your layers.
That’s why I like to layer a cute apres ski sweater under all my ski gear. That way, I still look cute for apres while staying warm on the slopes. This year, I treated myself to an apres ski sweater I’ve been eyeing for years, because honestly, my ski layers were starting to wear down and I knew I’d wear this one just as much off the slopes as on. It looks so cute with jeans and boots, and I even dressed it up one night on our trip with black pants and a fur vest.
