We have a ski trip approaching and I realised that the Ski Bunny (age 2) needs new ski gear- she has always had a mix of borrowed, hand me downs and a few gorgeous pieces of her own… but as she is wearing size 4 clothing in some things (tall girl) I will get her a new outfit all of her very own. I thought that I would do a wrap up of some of the latest and cutest gear for stylish girls on the slopes.
i’m tossing up between a one piece and a jacket/ combo for her…one pieces are better for important things like making snow angels and keeping snow out when you tip over on skis.. but a jacket can give you more options for day to day wear too if you live in a cold climate. I’ve got lots of tips on choosing ski gear for kids here if you need some ideas
One thing that I recommend you look for in any kids skiwear is the “”Grow-it” feature on most pieces- this allows you to get an extra season or 2 out of jackets and pants by lengthening the sleeves and pants- usually you just need to clip some threads and you gain an extra few inches in length- whoever came up with this feature is a genius! Today I’m looking at girls fashion- and if you are afraid of pink… look away… everything here has been selected with the Ski Bunny in mind and as in her words, “I like pink and princesses and ballerina’s”.
I’ve pulled pieces from lots of the major ski brands to share the best of 2013 girls ski fashion and had fun reviewing the looks. I’ve been super imressed with girls ski fashion this year- it borrows from the “big girls” and takes trends straight from the runways- lots of floral prints, some graphic digital print elements and bright pops of retro colours and designs.
My picks for ski season 2012-2013
Spyder Girls Bitsy Sassy Snowsuit in Sorbet/ Diva pink Size 2-7 RRP $ This also comes in 3 other colourways
Obermeyer Snoverall Bib in Bubble Pink Size 2-7 RRP $89.50
I would pair this with the Obermeyer Balance Jacket in Dippy Dots Size 2-7 RRP $119
I love this Spyder Bitsy Lola Jacket Size 2-7 RRP – the same print as before but in a jacket with a fur trim hood- the fur is removal too!
The Boarder is huge fan of The North Face.. and I’ve been really into their women’s range this season.. but THIS is a jacket my daughter has loved since I showed it to her… it is VERY pink.. but with enough chic features to keep the levels of sophistication.. I’d like this in black for myself!!
The North Face Toddler Girls Greenland Jacket in Razzle Pink (also available in Black ) Size 1-4 RRP $119
The North Face Girls Mountain View Triclimate Jacket is a terrific 3 in 1 jacket that provides multiple levels of warmth and 2 jackets in 1- Size 2-4 RRP $130.. again in Razzle Pink. A ski jacket shell and…. fleece jacket inner.
Columbia Girls Buga Set- a jacket and bib set in Raspberry with aqua blue lining. Size 2-4 RRP$130
The Ski Bunny has also outgrown her snow boots so I’ve narrowed down the choices to the following…
The North Face Nuptse II Snowboots. Great tread, easy to get on and off and a little bit of fur for fun Various sizes (they also come in big girls sizes too) RRP $65
Sorel’s Toddler Snow Commander Boots in Diva Pink… but of course!! From $36.95
AND to top it all off.. the sweetest Obermeyer Pink Moose Hat!
Now if all that pink has been too much for you ( tomorrow I will be taking a look through the best looks for the season for boys!
See you on the slopes! Skimama
