Alpine Dreams

A trip to the lodge in something chic and cozy makes the white stuff fun again.

 

Dealing with snow in the city can be a drag. But put that same fluffy white mixture in the right locale—say Vail—and you have something magical. Vacationing at the lodge means stocking up on warm, cozy and comfortable apparel, and this season’s rad winter-ready options are no doubt one part snowboarder, one part prepster. Sophisticated knits look best in shades of charcoal—and make your classic Aspen-patterned accessories really pop—while rough and rugged denim is a must for both warmth and durability. Keep in mind it’s not cold everywhere—especially when relaxing by a roaring fire, so remember to pack a few sleek button-downs in various colors. Finish off the look with an extra sturdy sports watch that will stand up to your gnarliest moves—both on and off the slopes.
