A chic, affordable ski outfit for the skier of one trip a year

Under $200!

I recently shared a luxury ski outfit that many of you loved… But I also got a lot of requests for a more affordable ski outfit. Many of you said that you only go skiing once or twice a year and are not quite ready to invest in some of your ski gear. Then the outfit below is for you! It’s a chic yet affordable ski outfit for the skier who skis once a year! Each piece costs less than $200 and most should work seamlessly with ski gear you already have.

Ski jacket

This ski jacket is so much fun! I love the combination of blush pink, burgundy and print. You can wear this jacket with white or black pants. And it has a hood for extra warmth!


Pink Ski Buff

This is one of those things I discovered after living in Colorado and skiing more often… a ski fanatic is now my go-to. I used the fleece buffs, but these are better because they are lightweight and you can easily adjust them to cover your mouth and nose. They can also go over your head to keep it even warmer. I recommend getting a printed one for fun and a solid one! This light pink would go perfectly with the ski jacket.


Printed Ski Buff

The second ski buff is printed but neutral, so you can wear it with other ski outfits too!


cashmere sweater

I wanted to bring out more of the pretty light pink in the ski jacket, so I found this gorgeous cashmere sweater from one of my favorite cashmere brands, AQUA. This sweater is perfect whether you’re really into skiing or après-ski is more your style. The cashmere is also super warm!


ski pants

These insulated ski pants come in a ton of colors, have over 39,000 reviews on Amazon, and are only $48!


White Pom Pom Hat

This white pompom hat is great for après-ski, outside or just for regular winter outfits.


cashmere hat

This cashmere beanie is so soft and warm. It’s also really nice to have a hat to put on at lunchtime. For really cold ski days, you can also wear the beanie under your helmet!


Ski Salopettes

These super high waist salopettes are a great option if you don’t want to deal with traditional ski pants.



This brand of glasses is very popular and has a great price. These are available in a number of different lens color options!



You need to complete your look with the perfect sunglasses for your lunch outside on the slope. Also wear these on the chairlift on days when it’s warm and not windy.


Waterproof boots

Whether you’re going straight from skiing to lunch/dinner or just need a chic (and warm) pair of boots for your next ski trip, I highly recommend Sorel boots. I love the lighter color combinations, but Sorel has a lot of options.
