What To Wear On A Ski Trip If You’re Not Skiing

Have you seen the commercial where the lady is dressed in a HUGE white puffer coat? She thinks she looks cool and stylish, but her reflection tells her she looks like a big marshmallow. Lol! That commercial is about going on a ski trip, and that is how I feel about today’s outfit. Not that I look like a marshmallow, but that I “look” like I’m going on a ski trip. Here is what I would wear to wear on a ski trip if you’re not skiing.

What To Wear On A Ski Trip If You’re Not Skiing

I’ve never been snow skiing, and I don’t intend to try the sport now. It looks like lots of fun, but I don’t like the cold, and I don’t want to hurt myself trying to learn. I’ve actually thought about going to a ski lodge, but only to enjoy the scenery, the hot chocolate, and sitting around a large stone fireplace with a roaring fire.

Since I’m not going to be out on the slopes, I wouldn’t have to worry about a ski outfit that is waterproof or resistant. Instead, I’m only interested in an outfit that is cute, warm and cozy, and looks like I’m on a skiing trip. Lol!

The Crop Puffer Jacket is adorable! I have seen my DIL wearing cropped puffer vests and jackets, but I didn’t think I would like them. However, I was wrong, and I’m glad I decided to give them a try. This jacket is super warm, fully lined, quilted, and insulated. Plus, the description says that it is water resistant.

I think this jacket would look great with a pair of jeans and ankle boots.

If I’m sitting in front of a roaring fire, I probably wouldn’t be wearing my puffer coat. So, I want a super cute outfit that screams “ski trip.” Those of you who actually ski might be laughing, saying this outfit looks like someone who has NEVER been on the slopes.

Either way, I think the Apres Ski Turtleneck Sweater is gorgeous and one that looks great even if you aren’t planning a ski trip any time soon. The red, cream, and camel stripes are eye-catching and really pop against the black background. I’m wearing a medium, and the sweater is plenty large enough. You could always size it up if you want it to be more oversized.

Here is the length of the sweater. It hits me at my hips, which might be a little short for wearing with leggings, but would look great with a pair of jeans.

I don’t normally wear a beanie or hat, but I know I would need one on a ski trip. This Satin Lined Knit Beanie is one that I got during Amazon Days, and I love the satin lining. Normally, a knit beanie would make all kinds of static electricity, and my hair would be standing on end. Check out the photo below to see how my hair looked when I took the beanie off.

If I was actually skiing, I might leave off my jewelry. But, since I would only be sitting in front of the fire, I added a pair of Chunky Gold Hoop Earrings. The large, chunky earrings from the 80s are trending right now, and these are an affordable option.

I love my Fleece Lined Leggings, and I wear them all winter long. These are made from a water-resistant fabric that can handle light rain for a short time or keep dry on snowy days and provide wind protection. I can’t say for sure about all of that since it never rains or snows while I’m sitting inside my house. Lol! But I can say that they keep me warm and toasty, and I happened to be wearing a burgundy pair while I was typing this post. I’m wearing a large because I don’t like compression or tight leggings. If you like your leggings to fit tighter, then order your normal size.

So, what do you think? Does this look like what you would wear on a ski trip if you’re not skiing?

  20. Karen Nau says:

    Good morning, funny, that is what I wear to walk the dog every day in the winter. My puffy black jacket is from Marmot. In Northern California (45 minutes from SF), I don’t need the lined leggings though. Next month, my whole entire family (My siblings & their grandkids) plus all the 7 of my grandkids are going to a Dude Ranch in Mendocino County for the long weekend, as a gift from my parents. (My parents are in their mid eighties with a lot of energy) No snow, but it will be brrr, cold. I might have to invest in the lined version.

    1. How fun!!! It will be great to have the whole family there.

  21. Your sitting by the fire “ski outfit” is so cute looks great!

  22. Cute outfit. Love the sweater!!! I have been to a few ski resorts and I never ski. Hate the cold. I enjoy sitting at the bar!!! lol!!!

    1. Lol! This sounds like my kind of a trip!

  23. Christine Irvine says:

    Thank you for your blog. That’s an appropriate apres ski outfit, which is the only way I ski also. Been there, done that, got the medical bill.
    I don’t ski, but I live in ski country…and we’re very happy for all the beautiful snow we are getting.

    New Hampshire/Vermont

    1. Oh, no! That is what I’m afraid would happen to me.

  24. Lori Gorenflo says:

    I love the silk lined beanie and will have to get one. When I was younger I loved to ski but now am content to sit it the lodge and watch it all. And of course look good doing it. Great choices you gave us to do that.

  25. There’s always a need to look cute while being warm and toasty! Boots are super cute.

  26. Ginger Hiller says:

    Great outfit for looking like you are going skiing! I am going to checkout the earrings. Larry bought me 3 pairs of fleece lined leggings from Amazon for Christmas. I wore a pair yesterday and was pleased with how they protected my legs from the cold air.

    1. I think they are wonderful! I love mine.

  27. Your crack me up! I would never have thought about a ‘just in case you go skiing outfit’! I am trying the leggings…only 18 degrees here today and colder for the weekend.

    1. I hope you like them! I pretty much have on a pair daily if I’m sticking around the house.

  28. Dawn Milburn says:

    Thank you for the cozy ideas! The fleece lined leggings just went in my cart for an upcoming trip!

  29. Hi Tania,
    I just want to make sure. The picture shows you wearing the pants in a large not an XL correct? I weigh 140 and was thinking about the medium based on the sizing and comments. Maybe a larger would fit better?

    1. The large is correct. I must have made a typo, thanks for letting me know. I’ll go fix it now.

  30. You do look warm and toasty. Thanks for the suggestions. I think I need a few items.

  31. Janna Dwyer says:

    Hi Tania! You look super cute in your “non-ski” clothes! I love the look! I don’t like the cold either, so I would also just sit and sip hot chocolate in front of a huge roaring fire if I went to a ski lodge! I love the navy blue too, very flattering.

    1. I think the ski lodge will be pretty crowded with all of us non-skiers. Lol!

  32. I don’t ski, but the clothes sure are cute!

  33. Gabrielle says:

    no snow in New Orleans LOL, but I love the look!

  34. Carole from Canada says:

    I don’t ski anymore either but I would go to a ski lodge with that great outfit and juste bring a book to read with hot cocoa and enjoy the day.
    Love the beany hat .

  35. I’m cracking up at the idea of finding an outfit IF you were to go skiing! HAHA. Like you, I never have, not going to try, but would love to go sit around the fire and take in the mountain views with some hot chocolate in hand. Guess if I ever do, I’ll have to shop for looking-like-I’m-skiing outfits. 😀

  36. Great outfit! I ordered the beanie:) Thank you!! I haven’t seen one with a satin liner.

  37. Love this post and the “no ski” outfit. It’s perfect for enjoying the snow from the inside.

  38. Love the outfit. I am needing the fleece lined leggings for walking outdoors. Thanks for the heads up.

  39. I used to ski. Now I’m pretty sure I would hurt myself. Now I love the cute outfits like the one you’re wearing!

  40. Roberta Schwandner says:

    I’m with you when it comes to sitting around the fireplace and drinking hot chocolate. I do like these fashions you have chosen.

  41. Dottie Kinnaman says:

    Very cute! I’ll be sitting by the fire with you enjoying the scenery and hot cocoa!

    1. I’m sure there is plenty of hot chocolate for everyone. 😊

  42. I’m with you Tania. Sitting by the fire with hot chocolate or a hot toddy and a book while looking and feeling cute sounds good to me. Great place to people watch too.

    1. That’s my kind of a day. 🥰

    Love the outfit! I used to snow and water ski but not now! I love seeing cute clothes for skiing! Thanks for sharing!

  45. Very stylish for sitting by a cozy fire and drinking hot cocoa.

  46. I love the look today! The fleece-lined leggings sound so cozy – great for afternoon walks here in Montana. I’m so proud of my Michigan Wolverines – Go Blue!!
