Tory Sport Ribbed Soft Tech Knit Turtleneck ($198)
This snug, classy turtleneck is warm and breathable with unparalleled softness, and can dress up or down. It’ll be a lasting staple in your wardrobe.
Freitag F560 Sterling Bag ($260)
Swiss brand Freitag made this bag by hand from recycled truck tarps and seatbelts, resulting in a durable tote that can handle any weather. The F560 fits 12 liters’ worth of essentials, from beanies to bottles of wine, and reconfigures easily to a messenger.
Prana Women’s Globe Thistle Shirt Jacket ($199)
The Globe Thistle is a toasty statement piece that treads lightly on the environment: its 650-fill down insulation and PFC-free DWR-coated outer are Bluesign certified.
Filson Women’s Wool Jac-Shirt Top ($350)
Made with American wool, the Jac-Shirt will keep you comfy in frigid temps. The tightly knit water-resistant fabric is still breathable, and the boxy cut is sophisticated and flattering on many body types.
Fjällräven Vardag Beanie ($26)
A perfect beanie is the cherry on top of a cute après look. Our pick is the Vardag, made out of recycled polyester with a throwback logo that adds vintage flair. Despite frequent use during testing, it never lost shape.
Skida Featherweight Shawl ($178)
This 100 percent cashmere piece is a classic post-ski accessory. It’s cozy and light, so you don’t feel like you’re drowning in fabric, and it comes in a variety of muted colors. Wear it as a scarf or a wrap.
Smartwool Women’s Popcorn Polka Dot Crew Socks ($25)
For everyone’s sake, please don’t wear your damp ski socks to the bar. These polka-dot merino-nylon crews will last (and stay in style)for many seasons to come.
Aether Women’s Dolomite Boots ($400)
Impeccably stitched vegetable-tanned Italian leather lends these snug lace-ups runway-level aesthetics. Meanwhile, sticky Vibram outsoles keep you upright on ice. Aether’s lifetime manufacturing guarantee seals the deal.
Raen Remmy 49 Sunglasses ($170)
A keyhole bridge and slightly horned temples make Raen’s retro-inspired glasses look like art. The acetate frames are handcrafted, and the lenses offer full UVA and UVB protection.
Duer Performance Denim Mid Rise Skinny Jeans ($129)
Duer’s stretchy denim holds its shape between washes and boasts the wicking and insulating powers of Coolmax’s channeled and hollow polyester fibers. A reinforced crotch gusset prevents rips while sledding.
