It’s officially the season for skiing—or après-ski, if you’re more of a chalet-and-hot chocolate fan. Whether you’re planning a lavish Aspen getaway (like Kendall and Kylie Jenner just did), or hitting the slopes at your local resorts, you’ll need all of the appropriate winter gear to have fun in style. And who better to look to for ski fashion inspiration than some famous snow bunnies?
Over the years, stars have headed into the mountains in practical ski looks that still feel incredibly fashion-forward. The queen of striking this balance was, quite literally, royalty: Princess Diana often sported colorful puffer jackets and sleek wayfarer sunglasses during her frequent ski trips. She easily proved that you could keep warm and still flex a look on the black diamond runs (or bunny hills, if you’re a beginner).
If you’re more of an après-ski person, you can also keep cozy at the lodge while still looking put-together. Just take cues from Kendall and Kylie’s Aspen trip earlier this month, where the two stars sported Loewe puffers and shearling from The Attico. Mariah Carey, who often spends her holidays in Aspen, has also channelled the vibe around town while wearing full-on ski suits and cropped puffer coats—even if she has no intention of actually skiing. That’s not the point! As these celebrities have shown, it’s all about rocking a wintery outfit that both bundles you and makes a statement.
Below, more stars who have nailed the art of winter ski style.
