According to the Milanese purveyors of high fashion, this winter's wardrobe will boast outfits that are part stage-friendly and part slope-appropriate. So, with that in mind, we've pulled together a full 'fit of alpine grunge so you can get ahead and keep your style from going off piste.
Although niche, the trend, which we first identified at Milan Fashion Week Men's earlier this year, effectively pulls together the key elements of two big recent menswear muses -outdoorsy attire and grungy goodness. Think Kurt Cobain taking to the slopes and swapping hiscult cardigan for extra padding, but still wanting to keep that signature grunge aesthetic flowing. And while designers Moncler and DSquared2's super-literal catwalk version of the trend clash might seem a little on the nose, you don't need black-run levels of skill to pull off a wearable version.
First, channel the rocker look and don a graphic-print sweatshirt. For your outer layer,Moschino Bags Outlet make like Cobain and go for a cosy cut - this time in the form of a snug borg worker jacket. Down low, wear a pair of neutral-coloured camouflage trews to match your jacket. Accessories-wise, add a streetwear edge with a bumbag, checkerboard-print cap and a pair of Air Max 97 UI '17 creps. To finish, rock a pair of oval-shaped, slope-ready shades - Cobain made them iconic after being shot in them by photographer Jesse Frohman.
YOUR APRES-SKI OUTFIT
After a long day on the mountain and no time to rest the war wounds you received after recklessly taking on the black slope, the best thing you can do is slip out of your salopettes and straight in to a comfy apres-ski 'fit. Don't let your look go off-piste by sacrificing style for warmth, though - it's possible to keep cosy and look great. Trust.
A warm, padded, Napapijri jacket will not just keep you toasty but will also give you an added style edge on every other guy in the chalet. As you already know, layering is vital in cold weather,Moschino Belts Outlet so it won't come as a surprise that when you're 1,500m above sea level, it's even more important. Pair a blue striped tee with a fleecy half-zip sweatshirt to add some extra cosiness under your big puffy jacket and keep on that favourite beanie of yours (which probably won't leave your head for the whole trip anyway).
Accessories-wise, a camouflage bag will, ironically, make you stand out brilliantly against the white snow and don't forget to throw on a durable pair of black boots in case you have to trek through it to get to and from the evening's revelries. To finish your outfit of peak apres-ski stuff in comfy, stylish fashion, pop on a pair of grey marl striped joggers and take your style to new heights.
