A Rise in the One Piece Ski Suit, 2023’s Default Snow Outfit
There are a lot of reasons why you might want to default to this classic ski look. One piece suits are both stylish, and incredibly practical (in more ways than one!). Here’s what wins this popular skiwear piece as the title of “Most Practical”:
–There are no gaps. Unlike your separates, a one piece blocks any and all air that would otherwise come through your two piece looks. If you were to ever take a tumble on the slopes, there’s no chance during your fall that any snow will get inbetween your clothes, altogether avoiding the potential of exposing your skin to the cold.
–You’ll have less pieces to pack. All the guesswork is taken out of what top pairs with what bottom!
How do you go about choosing a ski suit?
There are a few main components to choosing a great onepiece.
First, identify how your body is highlighted by the suit. While a snow suit may initially seem unforgiving, there are some differences in cut, color and pattern that can change the game between pieces.
For Men, Utilize Shapes and Color Blocking
Want to take attention away from your middle? Use color and patterns to draw the eye where you want it to go. Try a look like this color block snow suit, which brings the eye to your shoulders and arms.
We love how this snow suit commands attention back to your face using strong lines and a flattering blackout on the middle downwards.
For Women, Note the Waist
This piece has a v-shape midriff which breaks up the midsection, creating a flattering illusion that cinches the waist and brings curve to the hips.
Deemphasizing the Waist & Leg Lengthening:
These pieces use color to emphasize long lines and leg lengthening, which helps to skim over your midsection! This can work great for anyone who wants to look taller, deemphasize their midriff, or create more balance with their bodytype.
Pay Attention to the Belt:
A lot of snow suits feature a belt in the middle, which cinches the waist and gives the piece some shape! Pay close attention to how high or low this cinched section is. If you’re a pear shape or hourglass, you’ll especially want a suit that belts at the smallest part of your waist!
Note the Color
We like to think of ski suits the same way we think of swim suits and event wear like dresses and statement suits. There are some important factors to consider, which come in the form of three questions: Is it flattering? Do I feel confident in this? Can I wear it again?
Wearing a black, white or neutral suit can serve as an easy wear that won’t feel stale after one use. While this may sound too safe or boring to some, you could opt to make a neutral color suit still feel fabulous by selecting one with a subtle accent or unique detail, like this black ski suit with a matching fur trimmed hood.
Another bold but re-wearable look is a two-toned ski suit. We love this gray and white two-toned neutral ski suit for interest and minimalist high wearability!
Want to go full on bold? A ski suit in one bright, flatting color could serve as a thematic look for your trip! Much like the yellow rain coats expected at every rainfall, or a superhero’s iconic costume worn on every adventure – you’ll look back fondly at photos of the fabulous ski suit you donned in winter of 2023, excitedly preparing for the next ski trip in which you’ll pull it out again and again.
Take it a step further with patterned ski suits! First, make sure to match your ski boots back to the pattern by identifying base colors and highlight colors in the pattern. For suit longevity, we love timeless patterns like animal print or stripes.
