Apres Styles for Women


While we wouldn't wear Athleta's nordic-inspired cotton Slalom Sweater cross-country skiing, it's a no-brainer for just about any other activity. $89; athleta.com

Merino wool with a touch of stretchy, spandex-like material makes I/O Biocompatible's Women's Signature Track Pant comfy enough for curling up by the fireplace, but it's also flattering enough for wandering around town. A zippered stash pocket means you can leave your purse at home. $100; io-bio.com

With fully taped seams, sweater-like cuffs, and a faux-fur lining, Volcom's waterproof wool-and-polyester Galena Insulated Parka will keep you dry and cozy all winter. $250; volcom.com

Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear's Boyd Sunglasses have unbreakable titanium frames and deliver 100 percent UV protection. Their gray gradient lenses are just dark enough for bluebird days. $495; samaeyewear.net

Mountain Hardwear's moisture-wicking and shape-holding Lightweight Power Stretch Long Sleeve Crew is perfect for aerobic activities like snowshoeing but stylish enough for the bar. $60; mountainhardwear.com

Royal Robbins' brushed-nylon-and-Lycra Avani Pants have an adorable cut and feel finer than silk. $65; royalrobbins.com

In colors like "sugarplum" and "lavender," Scapegoat's girly-but-technical Sadie Vest has DWR-coating, PrimaLoft insulation, and a scrunch-down-around-your-face hood. $225; scapegoatbrand.com

Coal's Jacquard-woven Nordic Hat's soft acrylic threads eliminate the typical beanie-induced itch. $25; coalheadwear.com

Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear's Otis Sunglasses offer the same features as above, in a different frame.

Merrell's waterproof and wool-lined Puffin High Boots kept testers' feet dry and warm during a slushy afternoon at Whistler. $150; merrell.com
