One to worship Ice Cool - Sunday Times Style
Bulky, designed to keep you warm rather than looking chic, and often sporting prints that look like National Express coach seats, skiwear can be depressingly predictable. Unless your budget stretches to a Chanel ensemble or you are happy going down the gap-year boarder route (all camouflage pants and peaked headbands), the pickings are traditionally slim. So hurrah for Sweaty Betty's glamorous yet practical new line of snow-proof active wear. In a simple palette of black, coral and grey, finished with old-school flourishes of faux fur, the collection is cut to flatter the figure, so no Michelin-man moments.
With base layers starting from 45 and jackets from 240, its not supermarket cheap, but the classic styles mean you can wear them season after season. We love the eskimo cape and faux-mink hat, which are perfect for James Bond-style alpine adventures and guaranteed to attract the attention of the chairlift crowd as you cut it on the slopes below.
