The latest ski fashion trends for 2011 allow you to do just that. Get out there, show your moves, and make a fashion statement in the process!
You may make a statement with your daring snowboard moves but you can make sure you are even more noticeable when you pick ski wear in bright, fashionable colors. Women can pull off the “ski-bunny” look with jackets and related attire in coordinating colors of pink, grey, lilac, and black. Light blue also works well with this color combination. These colors are feminine and look good on many women. All white also makes a statement and is easy to match to any other color. Alternatively, if you want to look more sophisticated, go for an all black ensemble with a bright color accent piece, like a hot pink hat or scarf. To boost your fashion trend quotient, buy mix and matched gear in related colors with different patterns or prints.
