Q. I am about to go on my first ski trip (to Meribel in France) and have no idea what to wear for apres ski. I am really impressed with your advice on the website but could not see anything relating to skiing. Are you able to help? There are 14 of us going and we are all in our early to mid-twenties. The expectation is that the apres-ski will form a major part of the trip! I am particularly confused about footwear. I have read mixed things about the need to take extra-grippy footwear for getting around the resort. If I am to buy moon boots or some other alternative how can I make them look stylish (tucked in jeans are a complete no-no as I am hefty of thigh)?
A. You need to keep your feet warm and toasty, avoid tumbling on icy streets and still look cute and cozy for those drinks by the fire chatting with handsome European guys. I've made some simple picks of sweaters for the cozy look that you can layer with tops underneath and boots that your jeans or corduroys will easily fall over without a need to tuck in, but you could cuff if you wanted to.
