Your go-to Après-Ski destination? Meribel, the corner table at La Folie Deuce for some cheesy table dancing!

What are you rotating? Everything you could possibly need! From a Fusalp ski jacket and trousers, through to Goldbergh tops, Jacquemus hat, leopard fleece, to snow boots, Ganni back pack and goggles.

Top tips for looking chic on the slopes?
Thin layers, you don’t want to feel super bulky so take a few chic layers you can take off and fit into your bag. Always take a beanie so that when you take your helmet off you don’t have to worry about trying to drag a hairbrush through your crazy ski hair.

I keep the outerwear timeless in black but then try to add a bit of  fun with the accessories or layers, I have a Goldbergh obsession this year. I think they have nailed the ski chic, in particular their leopard print.

Your go-to Après-Ski destination? Ferme Saint Amour & La Mangeoire Courchevel.

What are you rotating? The classic Silver moon boots & matching my Sunday ski chic ski jacket.

Top tips for looking chic on the slopes?
1.Headbands elevate every style! Especially a classic black look! paired with a turtle neck it’s a cheat code to looking like a 90’s supermodel.
2. Monochrome outfits, you cannot lose!

Cami B, @camii

Your go-to Après-Ski destination? I love going to Switzerland and getting a hot chocolate at Taillens. It is the best I have ever had, literally to die for.

What are you rotating? I’ve listed my Cordova jumpsuit, a Chanel jumpsuit, a Moncler puffer, two Prada puffers, and some Chanel accessories.

Top tips for looking chic on the slopes?

1) Comfort is key. It does not matter how chic the outfit is if it is not warm enough. The best way to be warm and still look cute is to add warm invisible layers underneath your outfit

2) Accessorise wisely: I have looked for cute ski outfits for years, yet I am coming to the realisation that what ties an outfit together are the accessories. Whether it's a cute belt to accentuate the waist, or matching mittens and scarf to create that put-together, polished and cosy ski bunny look. A cute backpack or fanny pack can also go a long way and help you stay organised and keep your essentials all in one place (like phone, SPF, credit cards, etc) while you are out on the slopes. Also, sunglasses really give an edge if you are lucky to ski in good weather.

3) Vintage Inspo: My favourite when packing for a ski trip is to look at old Slim Aarons's photos for inspiration. These outfits are iconic and have transcended time. Despite being shots over half a century ago, they would still look so chic on the slopes today.

Your go-to Après-Ski destination? I love going to Meribel, can’t beat having the 3 valleys on your doorstep.

What are you rotating? My favourite Cordova ski suit, for ultimate slope chic!

Top tips for looking chic on the slopes?
A rented ski suit is a must!
Bring a cute ski roll neck - perfect for when you need to take off your coat or the top of your ski suit for those long lunches in the sun.
Always safety first - a helmet and bold goggles to complete the look!

Emma H, @emma.hoareau

Your go-to Après-Ski destination? Honestly, I love a fondue like any other but I'm all about the spa and sauna to relax my muscles!

What are you rotating? Perfect moment blue jacket - it's super chic but more importantly super warm with loads of pockets both inside and out so great for lip balms, glasses, water and everything else you need on the slopes! It's also easily recognisable for when your friends are trying to spot you! (Plus it pairs perfectly with the white Perfect Moment ski suit I'm also rotating)

Top tips for looking chic on the slopes? It's all about the details - good sunglasses, gloves and hat go a long way in pulling a look together.
