The Best Women’s Aprés Apparel of 2018
Comfortable, classy fireside wear.
The North Face Mossbud Swirl Parka ($179)
Roomy and cozy, with its silky interior and generous hood, this recycled-polyester taffeta jacket feels like plush outerwear pajamas. Bonus: it is also reversible.
Kaenon Cali Sunglasses ($229)
Don’t let the glamorous, Italian-made frames fool you: these one-ounce shades rock a high-performance polarized lens that comes in three tints: gray, brown, and (for better depth perception on snow) green. Each one offers 100 percent broad-spectrum UV protection.
Hydro Flask 10-Ounce Rocks Glass ($30)
Shake up cocktail hour with this practically indestructible tumbler that, with the included lid, keeps a beverage cold for hours at a time and feels great in your hand.
Mountain Khakis Limited Edition Market Tote ($85)
Tough enough to carry ski boots and plenty classy for carrying a few bottles of wine, this 33-liter heavy-canvas tote should live in the back of the Subaru, ready to load up with whatever your next adventure requires.
Chaos Tyler Hat ($20)
The fleece liner and faux-fur pom on this 100 percent acrylic hat make the Tyler warm, functional, and fun, without breaking the bank.
Krimson Klover Marta Sweater ($159)
Wherein the classic ski sweater gets a philanthropic update. Five percent of the proceeds from this soft, 100 percent wool piece are donated to First Descents, a Denver-based nonprofit that provides adventure opportunities for people living with cancer.
Helly Hansen Women’s Garibaldi VL Boots ($180)
Leave it to the Norwegians to make a stylish waterproof leather boot with a faux-fur interior and heavily lugged soles that kept us upright even on the ragged rock-and-ice shoreline of Lake Superior in February. Afterwards, we took them right into the bar for post-hike ciders.
Burton Expedition Pants ($75)
These fleecy tights provide warmth and comfort in spades. But don’t relegate them to lazing around the fire—the ultra-wicking polyester-spandex fabric is very breathable, making the Expedition the ideal skin-track companion, too.
Dale of Norway Rose Shawl ($399)
It’s not après without some indulgence, right? That’s why you buy this soft, silky cashmere-merino shawl, with its elegant yet bold eight-petal-rose pattern.
