An Iconic Luxury Ski Look to Standout On the Slopes This Winter

Luxury Ski Clothing

We’ve lived in Telluride, Colorado now for 4 1/2 years. We moved here as an experiment to “test it out” for a year. I wasn’t sure I could handle the winter and spring seasons after living in Texas for 8 years. Well, 4 1/2 years later… we built a house here and have no plans to leave. It’s wonderful! (Read about how I manifested the house here.)

I’ve learned a ton of things since moving here. For example, did you know there is a sport called “Skinning?” You put “skins” on your skies, hike up a mountain slope and then downhill ski once you reach the top. The locals do this a lot when the ski resort closes down. It’s amazing exercise (I’m told)! Did you know there are two types of cross-country skiing?? Classic and Skate skiing. Skate skiing is REALLY hard. I prefer classic or Nordic cross-country skiing. I also learned about the existence of “EX” runs as well as “Hike To’s”. EX is short for expert ski runs. And Hike-To’s are where you hike to a higher peak and then ski down. Incidentally, my kids can now do both which really blows my mind. I’ve also learned a TON about outdoor gear…everything from snowshoes, to snow boots to ski gear.
Below I’m sharing some luxury ski clothing for those of you who really want to standout on the slopes!

Ski Suit

If you prefer a ski suit instead of dealing with pants, this Perfect Moment jumpsuit is, well, perfect! All of this brand’s pieces are warm and comfortable. I love the sleek and cool faux leather and contrasting white stripes. I know you might be concerned about the potty situation, but consider how many times you actually go to the bathroom while skiing. I'll bet it's once a day... max.

Ski Jacket

Isn't this jacket CUTE?? I love the bright pink. It’s another piece by Perfect Moment so it will be very warm. It also has a detachable hood which is such a great bonus feature!

Wool Sweater

I wanted to bring out more of the pretty pink in the ski jacket, so I found this beautiful wool sweater that’s perfect whether you’re actually skiing or après ski is more your style. Wool is a great top layer because it's VERY warm. It doesn't add a ton of bulk, so you look slimmer.

Printed Ski Buff

Here's one of those things that I discovered after living here and skiing more often... a ski buff is now my go-to. I used to use the fleece buffs, but these are better because they are lightweight, and you can easily adjust them to cover your mouth and nose. They can also go up over your head to keep your head even warmer. I recommend getting a printed one for fun and a solid one!

Ski Pants

I don't like the feeling of my pants digging into my waist on the chair lift, which is why I usually opt for suspender pants that come up higher. But these pants are super high-waisted so that shouldn’t be a problem. The bright pink is bold, but I LOVE it!

POC Goggles

I bought the REALLY nice and expensive POC interchangeable lens googles that everyone seems to love, but they are WAY too big for my small face. I ended up getting this pair as well. Remember to buy the same brand ski googles as your helmet to ensure a seamless fit. I've made this mistake and you end up having a huge space between the top of your goggles and the lip of your ski helmet.

POC Ski Helmut

This helmet is really neat because it has built-in Bluetooth technology so you can answer phone calls and play music. I always play music now while skiing, but you have to be careful doing this. I only ski on days when there are not a ton of people on the mountain, so it feels safer. You can also look at Outdoor Tech's Bluetooth helmet inserts (linked). With these, you can play music wirelessly from any ski helmet.

Salomon Ski Boots

Salomon ski boots are my go-to ski boot brand because they are SO comfortable. I have a pair with built in heaters that you charge and then they keep your keep warm for hours, but unfortunately, they aren't available online. I did find a pair of Rossignol boots with built in heaters (inked). The other option is a pair of boot heaters (also linked).

Pink Beanie

It's really nice to have a hat you can throw on at lunch. You can also use your neck buff as a headband if you don't want to carry around your hat. This hat is such a fun, pretty, unexpected color, and it's cashmere so it's extra warm.

White Pom Pom Hat

I also wanted to give you a more versatile option. This hat is lovely for après ski, outdoors or just regular winter outfits.

Aviator Sunglasses

You have to finish off your look with the perfect sunglasses for your slope-side, outdoor lunch. Wear these on the chair lift too on days it's warm and not windy.

  1. Love the ski clothing you’ve selected; I would love to see some of your ‘luxe for less’ selections, please! Thank you!

  2. Erin, can you cover petite friendly ski wear, shorter pants and sleeves would be nice but almost impossible to find.
    also add comments on ski googles for different kinds of light. Thanks. Just wanted to say that I love you live in the mountains. Keep posting mountain living related things for your global readers. I am in Whistler right now enjoying the ski life for the next two weeks.

  3. Yes! We need budget options. I only go a couple of times a year. Maybe mid-priced and then pull together a cheap Amazon look with bibs and coats and boots. Thanks!

  4. Hi Erin! Thank you so much for this post! No one ever posts on ski gear and as a mom to a kiddo in a ski club, we’re out on the hill a few times a week. I’ve had my eye on Perfect Moment for awhile (so spot on nostalgic and fashion-forward at the same time!), but I haven’t known whether they are built for our serious North American winters. Have you found that your PM ski suit does the job? And finally – a ski boot with built-in heat! Why has this never been done before?! Lastly, I can attest that POC is worth the money. Their helmets look the best and are warm and feel extremely sturdy. Excellent advice about getting the same brand goggles. This is key!

    1. Hi Katherine! Yes, they are definitely built for serious winters! And yes, heated boots! So exciting! Erin xo

  5. Why haven’t I gotten a pair of heated gloves before?! ????????Loved this post, but can you also give us the luxe for less version please?????????

  6. Hi Erin,
    I would love an affordable options email for this outfit. I absolutely love the jacket and bibs combo, as well as the pink hat! Can’t wait to see your finds.

  7. You and your eyebrows are gorgeous! You are my favorite blogger or life style guru or whatever! I am 20 years older and love everything you wear and all you expound.

    However, I did not like the Colleen Rothschild cream and Vitamin C as the smell was not my liking. But I love everything else you have ever recommended. Maybe I will get use to it and just use it up and have fabulous skin in spite of the smell.
