Just because it’s almost winter and your teeth are chattering doesn’t mean you need to spend the next few months looking like the Abominable Snowman. Hardly. Whether you live in a city with real seasons or you’ll be traveling to one, the winter style blues are one less thing to worry about. You can be bundled and still look cute (yes it is true!). From Fair-isle sweaters to stomp around boots, you’ll be the belle of the snowman’s ball.

Here are some ski-inspired finds that combine fashion and function.

Fair-isle is one print you can always expect to find inside a ski lodge. Splendid has an updated twist to the classic with their Fair Island Toggle Sweater available at Neiman Marcus. $228.00

Or if you aren’t so inclined to spend such a hefty bundle, be the most stylish bunny in ski school with this Ecote Totem Sweater for only $69.00 and can be found at Urban Outfitters.

Alexander Wang has a gorgeous Hybrid Tweed Ski Jacket, that will cost you a cool $1,695, available at Barneys New York, but you can definitely wear this one on and off the mountain.

Winter isn’t quite winter without Pendleton. Anthropologie offers a chic Penobscot Poncho from The Portland Collection by Pendleton.  After a long day on the slopes, you want to look your best when curled up next to the fire. $348.00

J.Crew is offering an exclusive Sperry Top-Sider Tall Shearwater Boot in a chocolate-and-red color combo, these boots feature a waterproof rubber sole and foot and a shearling-lined leather upper. $178.00

And don’t forget your ears!

Not the kind of trapper you had in grade school. The Toscana Shearling Trapper Hat from J.Crew can be worn just about anywhere the weather permits. Extra stylin’ with the leopard lined interior.  $198.00
