Womens Ski Clothing for 2019

Posted by Buckman's Ski & Snowboard Shops on Tuesday, January 15, 2019

2019 is finally here, and with it comes a whole new collection of fashion trends — some of them good, and some of them great. But there’s one thing that’s constantly in style, no matter the year, and that’s good quality.

Whether you’re talking about ski jackets or ball gowns, pajamas or suits, we all want our clothes to be of excellent quality. We want materials that will last, be comfortable and perform their intended function with magnificent style. All the rest is just decoration.

The women’s skiing clothing industry is no different. Plenty of things are going to come into fashion this year, and we’re excited to share them with you. No matter what the fashions are, however, our priority remains the same, and that’s providing you with warm, properly fitting, high-quality clothing that will stand up to all your cold-weather adventures.

Ready to see the items we’re most excited about this winter season? Let’s learn a little bit about the pieces of clothing you’ll most want to keep an eye on.

What to Look for When Choosing Women’s Ski Clothing

Anyone can sell women’s ski clothing brands and tell you that theirs is the best. Anyone can tell you that their ski fashion is worth buying. As an informed and savvy shopper, how do you truly know which ones represent great quality and which ones to avoid? Try looking for these telltale signs.

 What to look for when choosing ski clothing

1. Waterproofing and Breathability

For any outdoor activities in the snow, it's critically important that your clothes are waterproof. Even as the snow is clinging to your jacket sleeve and melting from your body heat, this water should simply run off the outer shell of your jacket or snow pants, rather than soaking in and leaving you damp and chilly. Breathability is just as important, as this feature allows your own body moisture wicked away by your base layers to escape, rather than saturating your inside the layers of clothing.

2. Warmth and Performance

When you’re hitting the slopes or even just trekking through the snowy wilderness, the number one concern on your mind is likely to be warmth. You need women’s winter ski coats, gloves, hats and base layers that are going to protect you from the elements. If you’ve picked up a piece that doesn’t seem to have this all-important warmth and performance, it’s likely not a good fit.

3. Comfort

You’re going to be skiing, snowboarding, riding ski lifts, hiking up mountains and so much more. As you go through these strenuous activities, it’s important that you’re comfortable. No one wants to ski in pants that are itchy, stiff or in any way less than pleasant. You want your base layers to feel like a second skin, and you want the layers on top of that not to be so bulky that you can barely move.

As you’re shopping ski fashion in 2019, make sure your clothes all provide you with a high level of comfort.

4. Fashion

Yes, you’ll want to be warm, and you’ll want to be comfortable, but you shouldn’t have to sacrifice fashion to achieve either of these goals. In an ideal world, cute women’s ski outfits can be all three of these things at once. There are plenty of styles, colors and designs out there — enough that everyone should be able to find something they like that both looks and feels great on them.

With these important features in mind, let’s take a look at some of the top women’s ski fashion in 2019 that we think meets all of these criteria.

Top Women’s Ski Jackets 2019

Arguably the most important layer of any skiing outfit, this outer jacket is the final layer of protection between you and the chill air and harsh elements. Additionally, it’s the layer people see, so it should look amazing. For ski jackets in 2019, here are our top choices.

Top Womens Ski Jackets 

Obermeyer Tuscany II Jacket1. Obermeyer Tuscany II Jacket

The Obermeyer Tuscany II Jacket boasts impressive range, encapsulating fashion, comfort and functionality all in one versatile coat. It’s entirely waterproof — when you come in at the end of the day, your underlayers will still be entirely dry. This waterproof feature is supported by stretch inner cuffs and an adjustable hood, which work together to keep the snow out.

This jacket also stays loose and relaxed enough to let you retain your full range of motion while still keeping you warm. The hood of it is removable to better accommodate a helmet and also has a beautiful faux fur trim. Finally, you’ll find hidden pockets stashed throughout this coat, where you can keep your phone, keys or even a small snack safe on the slopes.


Roxy Jetty Jacket2. Roxy Jetty Jacket

Once you’ve worn the stylish Roxy Jetta Jacket, you’ll never want to go back to plain solid-color jackets again. This exciting coat comes in two different beautiful patterns, both of which will make you one of the most fashionable skiers out and about in 2019. This jacket isn’t all looks, either. It’s also lightweight, with an adjustable and removable hood, chin guard and jacket-to-pant attachment system.



Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket

3. Patagonia Down Sweater

If down feathers are good enough to keep ducks and geese warm while they're flying through high altitudes, they’ll easily work for you on the slopes. This Patagonia Down Sweater is covered in a waterproof outer shell to keep you dry, and it's packed with down feathers to keep you warm. It’s designed to fit snugly for warmth, but not so tightly that it restricts your movements.

Stay extra warm in this coat by zipping up the interior storm flap and zipper garage without worrying about irritating your chin or throat. Additionally, the chest pockets can easily accommodate your hands, and the wrist cuffs tighten to entirely protect your hands from the conditions.


Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket4. Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket

This jacket’s headline feature is its light weight, which will keep you from feeling weighed down on the slopes. Don’t let that fool you into thinking the Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket is light-duty, however. The outer layers of this jacket are specifically designed to repel water and keep your body heat trapped inside. Additional features include an adjustable hem, hand warmer pockets with zippers and easy compressibility for ease of travel and storage.



North Face Thermoball Jacket5. The North Face Thermoball Jacket

The North Face Thermoball Jacket is designed for active wear, meaning it’s a flexible fit that bends and moves with you rather than maintaining a stiff silhouette that leaves you feeling like a snowman with no range of motion. Best of all, this extreme flexibility is complemented by high-quality weather protection. Neither wind nor snow nor water will be able to make it through this jacket’s tough outer shell, leaving you warm and dry inside.

This coat is also great for traveling, as it easily packs down into a tiny size. Then, when you’re ready to wear it, all you need to do is give it a shake and watch it return to its original size and shape.

North Face Garner Triclimate Jacket6. The North Face Garner Triclimate Jacket

If versatility is what you’re after, look no further than the North Face Garner Triclimate Jacket. This jacket consists of two separate parts — a waterproof outer shell and an inner insulating piece — which can be worn together or separately to mix and match and meet the weather conditions of the day. From spring to winter, and from the ski slopes to a brisk winter hike, this jacket is there with you every step of the way.



Arcteryx Delta LT Jacket7. Arc’teryx Delta LT Jacket

Designed with the active wearer in mind, this sleek and close-fitting Arc’teryx Delta LT Jacket can be worn as a standalone or beneath a shell jacket, depending on your activities for the day. Enjoy a non-locking front zipper for maximum ease and convenience, sleeves designed for extended reach without riding up, moisture-wicking fabric and plenty of hidden pockets. This article is also extremely lightweight while helping keep you insulated from the cold.



Top Women’s Snow Pants 2019

Top Women's Snow Pants 

As important as a waterproof coat is when you’re tearing up the ski slopes, it’s all means very little if you don’t also have a pair of reliable snow pants to go along with it. After all, you can be dry on top, but if you have nothing but jeans or leggings on the bottom, you’re quickly going to be soaked through and miserable. Instead, stay warm and dry in one of these options.

Obermeyer The Bond Pant1. Obermeyer The Bond Pant

It's the unique and fashionably tailored fit that grants these Obermeyer The Bond Pants their name. These pants provide wearers with a comfortable and versatile four-way stretch, mid-rise fit and a concealed pocket, all wrapped in an active waterproof shell. And to prevent these pants from slipping down as you ski, snowboard and hike the day away, they're also equipped with a contoured, high-back waistband.



Nils Jan Pant2. Nils Jan Pant

Looking for snow pants that offer all the protection and waterproofing that you need, but still look as stylish as jeans? These Nils Jan Pants have you covered. They're designed for the same slim fit you know and love from jeans, while also keeping you comfortable with four-way stretch and a mid-rise waist. Finally, enjoy belt loops and front pockets to complete the jean-like effect.



Patagonia Snowbelle Pant3. Patagonia Insulated Snowbelle Pant

For a snow pant that looks a little more like traditional cold-weather gear, the Patagonia Insulated Snowbelle Pant makes a terrific choice. These pants are available in three bright colors, in addition to traditional black, and they have excellent waterproofing, breathability and warmth. Extra features include mesh-lined vents situated by the inner thighs, a customizable waist fit and zippered pockets for stashing keys or other small essentials.



North Face Freedom Insulated Pant4. The North Face Freedom Insulated Pant

Unlike several of the pants we've looked at, which mimic a slim fit jean or dress pant, the North Face Freedom Insulated Pant brings something new to the table — a cargo-pant silhouette. This is thanks to a relaxed fit through the hips and thighs, as well as cargo pocket on the thigh. Besides these specialty features, these pants are also equipped with all the waterproofing and warmth retention you expect from a heavy-duty snow pant.



Winter's Edge Pants5. Winter’s Edge Avalanche Snow Pants

If you’re looking for quality and performance capability without breaking your brand new budget for 2019, Winter’s Edge Avalanche Snow Pants are the way to go. These inexpensive pants are designed with winter sports enthusiasts in mind and offer a relaxed fit that allows you the freedom to move. They’re also designed to fit snugly over snow boots, thus preventing any snow from slipping in the cracks.

Whether you’re an Olympic athlete or just looking to shovel your driveway, these snow pants are the perfect companion to help you tackle your winter weather activities with comfort and warmth.


Winter's Edge Bib6. Winter’s Edge Avalanche Snow Bib

Sometimes ordinary snow pants get the job done, and other times, you want the added security of the snow bib and shoulder straps. If the latter is the case, we recommend the Winter’s Edge Avalanche Snow Bib. These pants have all the water-resistance, comfort and insulation of the regular Winter’s Edge Avalanche pants, but with the addition of the bib that helps keep your torso warm while guaranteeing your pants stay in place.



Top Women’s Base/Mid/Casual Layers of 2019

Outer layers are important for keeping you dry and warm, but you might have all the tough outerwear in the world and still be chilly if you haven’t equipped your winter wardrobe with the proper underlayers. Base layers are typically thin and tight-fitting like a second skin to help move moisture away from your body. Mid layers' purpose is to trap your body heat and form an insulating layer that to help keep you warm and comfortable.

This season, these are the base- and mid-layer pieces we think you should keep an eye out for.

Nils Lucy Leggings1. Nils Lucy Leggings

Stay warm and dry by wearing these Nils Lucy Leggings. With a fleece-lined design, this heavyweight material will be thick enough to keep your body heat in and the cold out without weighing you down. The fabric is also moisture-wicking to keep you dry no matter how hard you’re working. Enjoy quilted accents, and choose between sleek gray and classic black in this essential pair of leggings.



Womens Nils Lindsay Leggings

2. Nils Lindsay Leggings

These Nils Lindsay Leggings have a lot in common with the Lucy style and offer the same heavy, fleece-backed material that’s designed to hug your body. The same moisture-wicking properties are present here as well. This design is slightly more streamlined, however, without the additional quilted accents. These Lindsay leggings are also available in two other colors — silver and white.



Under Armour Leggings3. Under Armour Base 3.0 Leggings

Enjoy warm, cozy leggings that fit right against the skin without the uncomfortable squeeze with these Under Armour Base 3.0 Leggings. The fabric is moisture-wicking and quick-drying — keeping you cool and dry no matter what you’re up against — and the 4-way stretch built into the material will help you move better and faster without feeling the restriction of a tight fabric.



Patagonia Cotton Quilt Snap-T Pullover

4. Patagonia Cotton Quilt Snap-T Pullover

If you need a mid-layer for your torso, try the Patagonia Cotton Quilt Snap-T Pullover in one of its three stylish colors. The diamond-quilted fabric of this pullover won’t just help keep you insulated — it’s also soft and cozy to the touch. Enjoy spandex cuffs and hem, a breast pocket and a 4-snap placket for maximum versatility.



Patagonia Better Sweater5. Patagonia Better Sweater 1/4 Zip

If snaps aren’t your thing and you prefer the speed of a zipper, a great alternative is the Patagonia Better Sweater 1/4 Zip. This piece is a cozy, mid-layer sweater that comes in 10 attractive shades of polyester fleece that will keep you warm even while allowing sweat to pass through so that you stay dry. This sweater also features a full zip-up collar to keep your chin warm, a zip sleeve pocket and a longer, flattering hem. 



Top Women’s Accessories of 2019

What skiing ensemble is complete without the proper accessories? From hats and gloves to socks and boots, accessories are essential to any outdoor activity in the winter — whether that activity is snowboarding or building a snowman in the backyard. If you plan on any winter fun in 2019, these are the accessories you’ll want to grab.

Smartwool Socks1. Smartwool PhD Ski Ultra Light Pattern Sock

For those who don’t want a bulky sock decreasing feeling between their feet and the boards — but still want to stay warm — the best bet might just be this Smartwool PhD Ski Ultra Light Pattern Sock. These light socks come in three elegant shades and patterns, and they come all the way up over the calf to prevent heel slipping.



Women's heated socks2. Heated Socks

If you tend toward cold feet, it may be that the average sock isn’t quite enough to keep your toes warm on a snowy day. In cases such as these, you may be better off choosing a heated sock. Browse our selection of heated socks to see which one may work best for you.



Hestra Gloves3. Hestra Gloves

Gloves are one of the most essential components of any skiing outfit, as fingers are so susceptible to catching cold. Keep yours safe and warm by choosing one of our styles of Hestra gloves. From mittens to gloves to hybrids, you’ll find that there’s something for everyone here.



North Face Montana Gore Tex Mitt4. The North Face Montana Gore-Tex Mitt
