Let's face it - winter doesn't exactly give us much to work with, fashion-wise. When you're not busy suffocating in endless layers, you're busy praying that umbrella you've brought along will actually keep your outfit-of-the-day ready to slay. Lucky for you, that's where we come into play. Here's how you can stay ahead of the fashion game next time you find yourself hitting the slopes.

For starters, don't worry - you're not alone here: staying safe and stylish has been a mystery we've all been trying to crack for years now. Just ask Yael Alkalay, the Israeli-Argentinian founder of beauty wellness company Red Flower. "I started skiing when I was really little, and it took my mom a lot to tuck me into all the clothes and boots," she recalled. "I didn't like the hot feeling of all the layers and the general sense that I couldn't move." But those days of worrying have officially become a thing of the past. How? The latest trend of formfitting, high-performance attire - something that will not only keep you nice and toasty, but give off that '60s-chic vibe we're all going for.

As Lauren Gores Ireland, skiing enthusiast and co-founder of Summer Fridays, added, there are plenty of affordable options to choose from. "If you're not wanting to spend so much on ski clothes but still want to feel great, ASOS has elevated and fun looks," she explained. From their rainbow-colored ski suits to their fuzzy, knit hats, they truly do have something for everyone. And once that's settled, finding that perfect 'fit can also call for the perfect photo op! "There's something about feeling 100% in a ski outfit," Ireland confessed. We couldn't agree more! And neither can Karelle Golda, founder of skiwear line, Halfdays. "We want to encourage everyone to get on the mountain, have fun, and not take themselves so seriously!" Golda noted of her sustainable collection.

We should note, though, that Halfdays' stylish line is a bit on the steeper side - but trust us when we say it's worth every penny! Nonetheless, from ASOS to Amazon, there are plenty more affordable options to have you feeling like the snow goddess that you are. So next time you're hitting those slopes, don't forget to bundle up, snap away - and, of course, have fun with it!
