Best Ski Clothes & Accessories For Women 2024

Best snow boots for women 2023: I’m a fashion writer and these are, hands down, the most stylish pairs you can buy

Ski accessories

From mittens to proper ski gloves and everything in between, make sure you’re stocked up on ski accessories as well as the basics. We recommend a good pair of light-reflecting and/or polarised goggles to protect you from the bright white glare of the snow at the very least.

Shei Mamona recommends Oakley’s Radar EV Path Polarized lenses and Ace & Tate’s Eddi Ski goggles when it comes to eyewear. They’re just as technical as they are stylish.

Après-ski clothes

The best part about après-ski is that there are no rules; you can wear what you want unless you go somewhere with a strict dress code (i.e. no hoodies/loungewear). For the most part, people go straight from the slopes to the bars in all their professional ski gear (mitts and all), but, if you want to get changed, you can’t go wrong with any of the below. You can also re-wear all of it back on good ol’ United Kingdom soil – especially the hat and scarves set.

How we chose the best women’s ski clothes in this guide:

As a team of 30+ people here at GLAMOUR UK, there’s a fair few of us who have been skiing and/or snowboarding in our lifetimes. While some of us have only been once or twice and others are considered mountain regulars, we’re definitely qualified to pass judgement on the best ski clothes for women either way. Just see our in-depth feature on learning to snowboard with an Olympian if you don’t believe us! We’ve tried and tested a decent amount of ski wear while taking things like cost, sustainability, wearability and style into consideration along the way, enabling us to give you advice on where to invest. Thank us later!

What should you not wear while skiing?

Save everything that’s not moisture-wicking/waterproof or thermal for after you’ve been skiing, or wear it underneath the items that will protect you from the elements. Avoid stiff fabrics like denim as you’ll find you can’t move or navigate the slopes properly, and don’t be tempted to double up on your socks – this can actually cause your feet to overheat and/or give you blisters if they bunch up. Buy proper ski socks that’ll last beyond a ski season instead.

Should ski clothes be loose or tight? Should you buy ski clothes a size bigger?

Everything should fit you well and be snug enough to keep you warm, but not tight. It’s important you have room for base layers, should you need them, and enough mobility to actually ski properly. When it comes to what size you should buy, it’s recommended you opt for a size bigger than usual for your trousers. This is to make sure you’re comfortable and, again, aren’t restricted.

What should a beginner skier wear?

See our above recommendations, plus ski socks, ski poles and, of course, the skis themselves of course.
