Here's Your Skiing Shopping List

There's nothing like a ski weekend with your best mates to escape England for Christmas or greet the New Year and, while you're at it, burn off the three million calories-worth of Quality Street you've consumed. Whether you're headed to Chamonix or Gstaad, your days will be filled with freshly fallen snow and your nights with roaring fires, hot tubs, fondue, and (fingers crossed) a gorgey ski instructor. There's just one thing left to do: Figure out how not to look like a nerd in your sports gear.
We think it's high time you stopped borrowing your flatmate's too-tight ski suits and invest in a few key pieces that are guaranteed to take your style from the bunny slopes to the black diamonds. Why settle for looking like a mismatched Stay Puft Marshmallow Man when you can be a svelte, sleek snow bunny, on and off the slopes?
Whether you're speeding down the mountain or sharing some spiked hot cocoa with Hans, you'll be the picture of winter perfection in this technical, toasty, to-die-for gear.
