With season 09/10 fast approaching it’s that fun time of year when thoughts turn to winter holidays and the new ski gear you are going to treat yourself to!
Every year new trends hit the market, providing a huge variety of options when it comes to both hard gear and ski outfits to be rocking on the slopes.
Here at Independent Mountain we are lending a helping hand in the style stakes and have put together a list of the latest trends for ski gear 2010.
Season 08/09 saw a few brands introduce longer style jackets for women that were of a baggier and looser style. This season the trend is still around and growing with all brands now having a minimum of one longer style in their collection with the majority having a great selection of these longer style jackets.
The key outwear colours for season 09/10 are Seafoam Green, Electric Blue and Purple ensuring you stand out on the slopes! There is still a small dose of Mustard Yellow , however, it is being phased out.
This season we see the popular prints of seasons before fading out and being replaced with plaids. To ensure you are on trend be sure to pick plaids in unusual palettes.
It’s all about the Zip in season 2010! Top brands such as Burton, Holden and the North Face have used zippers for a fashionable and functional design. From RiRi waterproof zippers and muticolored zippers to the exposed metal zipper that creates a punk rock look, be sure that you and your jacket do not head onto the slopes without one!
With the environment and eco friendly products being a hot topic it is no surprise that it has been introduced into ski fashion for season 09/10. Most brands will be providing environmentally friendly projects including outerwear, boots, bindings and boards, to name but a few, being made from recycled materials.
