Welcome to Winter! Posted by outdoorkids Snowbound this year? Be sure to wind back your watches because the trend in kids ski wear this season is all RETRO BABY! *** ^^ ** ^^ ** ^^ *** Ski jackets, clothing and accessory options this season for men, women and children are among the most refreshing ever. Fresh, bright rainbow colours & bold distinctive patterns of the 80’s will stand-out on the mountain this winter. For boys, the traditional blues & greens have been amped up to bright sky blue and lime green used in block colour or prints. Girls can look forward to plenty of eye-popping candy pink and violet. Faux fur is back this season (and not just for the kids either!). Look for boots, hooded jackets and headwear featuring fluffy trims. Unisex styles are also a welcomed feature this season, with big plaids, stripes & asymmetrical prints in bright primary colours a sure standout. On the technical side, one thing’s for sure - ski wear is getting smarter. Designers are focusing more on simplicity & easier dressing of young children. Trying to feed a small, limp hand into a glove or mitt is no easy feat – look for styles with Velcro or zip openings. One piece snow suits are a great idea for under 8’s with their long front zips making toilet trips more manageable in the confines of a cubicle! For infants under 2, look for a one piece snow suit (papoose) with an inner leg zip designed to allow easy nappy changes. Snow boots with easy entry Velcro openings are popular again this season whether you’re 1 or 100! So why consider buying something new this season and not recycle from yester-year? The fact is, every year snow sport fabrics improve with new technology. Today’s kids skiwear is more lightweight, softer, stronger, odor resistant and weatherproof than ever before. Smarter designs such as larger detachable hoods to accommodate ski helmets, more pockets for stashing treasures, and in general, advanced technology to keep children warmer, dryer and happier on the slopes.
