Pattern play: The days of 1980s style solid neons dominating the slopes have long since passed, and an era of sleek patterns has since been ushered in. Slip into a graphic patterned sweater, like this black knit which features a contrasting white star motif. Meanwhile, slim fit snow pants and a fur-trimmed parka help to keep your style wearable and comfortable for a day of snowy fun.

Pops of colour: If you do enjoy a pop of colour to brighten a dull day, try bringing your neutral winter gear to life with scarlet and ruby tones. A red beanie and abstract print red and grey sweater offer a warming touch, while big white sunglasses and furry boots keep the look contemporary and chic.
