Men's Ski Fashion Trends 2018/19

Many skiing enthusiasts and interested beginners may be casting their minds towards cheap ski holidays, with the season just a few months away. Of course, planning this far ahead may seem crazy, but it’s even crazier how quickly winter will creep up on us!

New ranges are already being released by skiing brands looking to sell their clothing, with Telegraph ski experts already eagerly picking out the best buys for the season ahead. So, if you want to stand out from the crowd, you’ll need these insider tips when it comes to purchasing your ski gear – and believe us, there’s not much around to guide you, fellas, particularly as most fashion features tend to cater towards a female audience.

In this latest fashion feature, we take a look at the popular trends for winter 2018/19 that will ensure you continue to look sharp on those slopes!

Retro Vibes

Of course, practicality will be the first thought when it comes to your ski outfits, but who says that means you can’t have some fun, too?

This winter is all about bringing some retro vibes, adding a spot of colour back to the white slopes. Awesome examples include O’Neill’s retro collection which is bringing the 90s back with bursts of bubble-gum colours (91' X-TREME). Just promise not to bring the music back from that era too!

It will be like a blast from the past, as you see a lot of brands will be sporting retro styles into their clothing options. Just this time, with a bit more style and sophistication than we did back then!

The all-in-one is making a glorious comeback for both men and women. Once considered a serious ski style faux-paus, it’s incredible how fashion can make a completed 180º turnaround.

Bold Colours

Continuing the fun streak, bold statement colours will ensure you’re noticed – just make sure your skills are up to scratch too! You will see a wide range of colours, so you can pick your favourite to show off your personality. Why not look towards ski/snowboarding company Picture Organic, who marry both environmentally-friendly designs with vibrant colours in their range?

Classic Tones Matched with Textures

Flamboyancy not your cup of tea? Stick to the dark and classic tones, matching them up with a texture or textile to stay on trend this season. 2018 has seen the return of the faux fur, particularly on hats and statement boots. For this to work for you, it’s all about optimising understated style with up-to-date functionality.


Black goes with everything and never goes out of fashion; therefore, it would be a great option to choose for your trousers if you’re looking for a timeless piece. A fitted pair of ski pants will see you through the years, just make sure they’re high-quality and from a respected brand to ensure you see the return on investment.


Many skiers are looking towards separating insulation and protection layers to ensure comfort and breathability. You will see many opting for shell jackets like those from Sabre, known for their protective qualities against all conditions – from wet to wind and our favourite, snowfall.

I look each year to find a better value ski holiday and fail. I love the staff, the resort and the accomodation. And the coach, to me it makes flying very uncomfortable and un civilised, Dont change a thing Hucksters you are providing exactly what I want. Roll on next season......

The staff were more like friends than employees and knew the area very well. Can't fault them. They sorted an issue with my wife's ski pass with as little stress as was possible. To start your day of skiing one had only to walk about 20m from the door, pop your skis on and off you go. You could eit...


You don't have to buy the snowshoes, ice grippers and trekking poles you'll need on mountain walks. If you don't have the necessary kit for hiking, Evolution 2 offer kit for hire.

Top Tip

By dispensing with things such as towels and complimentary toiletries (bring your own) and guaranteed en suite bathrooms, Hucksters has managed to create accommodation that is definitely communal and cheap but in that no-frills way that makes you feel pretty smug at the money you are saving. It has ...
