Add a splash of colour to your spring mountain wardrobe.  Complete the look from head to toe with a variety of ski brands to give your winter look more versatility.  With a focus on hot pink and purple and on a budget that won’t break the bank.

1. The North Face Women’s Baker Jacket, Snow+Rock (£250)
Looks as good on the slopes as it does when you are enjoying a spot of apres.  It has a slightly looser fit but it is still uber flattering whilst and the fur hood adds a touch of glam.

2. Colombia’s Women’s Baselayer Midweight Long Sleeve 1/2 Zip, Colombia (£55)
A great baselayer for the cold days,  its midweight, has a zip for ventilation as well as  sweat-wicking inserts, and thermal reflectivity for lightweight and warmth.

3. Icebreaker Vertex Long Sleeve Half Zip, Icebreaker, (£100)
Add a splash of colour and contrast, made from lightweight merino, ideal for cold conditions with a zip neck collar that lets you regulate your temperature, there is a drop-tail hem to give you extra coverage and we love the distinctive colour contrast sleeve inserts.

Patagonia is a firm favourite in the Skibible office, if you want to stay warm look no further than these durable 2-layer GORE-TEX® sallopettes, they are waterproof, breathable and offer windproof protection in all conditions. We also love the funky colour.

5. Falke SK2 Cashmere ladies socks, Snow+Rock, (£79)
The SK2 Cashmere ski sock is like the Rolls Royce of ski socks, cashmere combined with wool ensure cozy comfort and optimum warmth.  Falke are the leaders in socks and while the price tag is hefty, you’ll definitely think they are worth the splurge.

6. Hestra Sonata Leather Glove Black, Edge & Wax, (£95)
These feel too luxurious to be ski gloves, they’d be as chic on a winter walk as as they are on the slopes.  Made from the finest Italian lambskin, they also come with an elegant faux fur cuff.
