It’s peak season for hitting the slopes (quite literally in my case), and although skiwear isn’t exactly renowned for being stylish – it’s difficult to look good in all those layers, not to mention the fly-eyed goggles – Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss are among the few celebs who manage to look effortlessly stylish while skiing. Although being a size 6 under all those layers goes some way in avoiding the dreaded Michelin man effect.


Alprausch Ski jacket £57.94 Blue Tomato & Roxy Pink Arizona Trousers £90 Two seasons

Copy Victoria’s one-shade look (it’s slimming) with a virtually identical Alprausch jacket and ultra high-tech Roxy board pants. The boot cut design and the lack of bulky add-a-dress-size padding means these trousers are as flattering as skiwear comes. At £90 they are pricey, but the funky leopard print lining and guaranteed mega warmth makes them well worth the price.

Roxy Leopart Print Helmet £47.95 Rip101

If you’re good enough (or bad enough) to warrant wearing a helmet, then Roxy also makes a leopard print design helmet to match the lining on the trousers. I’m not sure I would want to sport this particular design, but on the plus side, your friends will easily spot you in a white-out. [Charlotte Howells]
