Under $150: Après Ski

Whether you’re an early-riser and first on the slopes, or you spend days with a book by the fire, by the time three o’clock rolls around everyone is ready for après (other than the snow, it’s kind of the best thing about a ski town). When it comes to transitioning from the slopes to the base of the mountain, it’s all about keeping your base layers on and adding functional footwear, chunky knits (we can’t resist a Fair Isle), and a warm coat. Here, three easy ways to get you off the mountain and on to your next activity without too much hassle.

For Live Music & Happy Hour

You won’t want to take off this Sweaty Betty turtleneck and leggings—they’re snug, quick-drying, and flattering—so build your outfit around them. A pair of worker-style coveralls and slim-soled Timberlands will do the trick. And don’t forget your lip balm, as mountain air is notoriously dry. (For more on what to pack in your beauty bag for a ski trip, head here.)

For Sledding

If your extracurriculars include spending more time in the great outdoors, layering and waterproof gear is essential. A Zara puffer lends a pop of color, while this Outdoor Voices stretch crepe track pant is both wind- and water-resistant. Hestra mittens are essential (and keep your hands nice and toasty) and the Sorel boots are good-looking enough to wear out to dinner in town after.

For Dinner in Town

We’re pretty into European ski label Perfect Moment and their eye-catching base layer, particularly this set in fire engine red. Go with a collared cable-knit Mango sweater and top it off with a faux-fur jacket from & Other Stories for a dose of mountainside polish.
