If you’ve booked a ski trip to beat the January blues, we don’t blame you. We’re right in the middle of ski season and we’re extremely excited about the new après ski trends that have been unleashed for 2016. And of course, we have to agree with you – what better way to dust off that feeling of malaise than to jet off to a beautiful snowy resort for some physical activity, some all-out winter glam, and the raucous party rituals of après ski? If you’re sick of the grey, drizzly weather here in the UK, take yourself off to Chamonix or Verbier for a week and check out the 2016 ski goggle trends below.
Trend: Monochrome Bunny
There are several different styles you can create with the ever-evolving monochrome trend. According to style reports, the “sophisticated Snow Bunny” look and the “slick all-black” look are hot for 2016. And that’s what we really love about monochromatic fashion; it is never bound by just one style or one decade and can be interpreted in so many different ways.
If you want to channel the sweet, innocent Snow Bunny, the key is to keep it sophisticated; combine soft faux fur with icy blues / greys / whites and never let your monochrome hues become too one-dimensional. Finish off your look with the Bolle DUCHESS ski goggles for women in white and gold.
Or if you’re channelling the sexy all-black look, the Bolle DUCHESS goggles also come in sleek black and white.
Trend: Colour Blocking / Brights
Bright colours have always been a huge part of ski slope fashion and our motto has always been “the brighter the better”. We wouldn’t want Mountain Rescue to miss us now, would we? But 2016 trends are very much steered by subdued brights and multi-dimensional shades. Queue colour blocking, patterns, prints and plenty of texture. Add a bit of depth to your look by choosing ski pants and ski jackets which combine fluro colours with muted hues. Or mix and match your own pieces to create a colour block palette that fuses intense colour with something more subtle; for example, style a cobalt blue ski jacket with duck egg blue ski pants and dusky grey/blue accessories. But whatever you do, don’t forget to complete your 2016 après ski wardrobe with a pair of mirrored ski goggles, like the Bolle EMPEROR OTG for men and women.
TREND: Soft Greys & Flirty Pinks
Pinks and greys are ultra-feminine and always a safe choice for those who don’t like to dip their toes in and out of the fashion pool. This chic combination of hues will never go out of style and will remain elegantly classic for many ski trips to come. If you want a timeless look that also hits the nail on the head for SS16, go for pretty pinks that are bright enough to be flirty but not fluorescent enough to steal the show; they key here is to remain feminine and ladylike whilst still being a bit playful with your colour choices. Team your flirty pinks with some soft, sophisticated greys – then finish off your look with the Bolle VIRTUOSE goggles which are a grown-up take on pink/red.
