Mountain Man | What To Pack for a Ski Holiday?

Ok. Here is a confession. I like summer but I’m more a winter person. Skiing and snowboarding is as tempting to me as a beach holiday. And sometimes more…
As my favourite time of the year has come (inc Christmas) we can start talking about ski holidays which I will be packing for soon! Hooray! J
Either you are a first timer or a regular skier there are certain things you wouldn’t want missing in your suitcase. Also there is a certain ‘style’ in ski holiday/ski look too.
So here is the ‘suitcase must have list’ for 2014 ski holidays!

PS: according to my surveys, women find men who snowboard very charming.

  1. First things first. Your ski outfit! Besides the specific ski/board trousers, gloves and etc, for a ski/board jacket, Moncler rules!
  2. Thermal socks  & thermal and long sleeved tops for base layers. You will hate yourself if you forget these. Thermal socks and tops are life savers on a ski holiday!
  3. Fleece sweater with a safe pocket for your mobile. DO NOT GO SKIING WITHOUT YOUR MOBILE  – You may get lost… You may also prefer a small rucksack.
  4. Even though it’s not a beach holiday you still have to take your sun care kit with you. The sun can be unforgiving up on the mountain, reflecting off the snow. Lip protection with high SPF, high factor sunscreen and after sun lotion. + Moisturizing
  5. Another summer essential for a winter holiday! Swim suit for sauna, hot tub or pool which is the second greatest time of the day after skiing.
  6. Pills like pain killers, muscle relaxants and something for diarrhea. Trust me!
  7. Casual clothes for the evening, layers are key as hotels and chalets can be warm. I usually prefer going very casual and relax on ski holidays. Enjoy this opportunity! J
  8. Travel Shot Glasses – you know why J
And as a result: Welcome to the BEANIE zone! Here are my picks for a stylish ski holiday inc. beanies, accessories, and jackets.

11+ Rules to Suit Up!
for modern guys

Even if you are a student or work as a freelance (home office) there will be times that you should wear a suit.  Any man can wear it but not every man can wear it right. You should also keep in mind that women are vulnerable when it comes to uniforms and suits. So… You have to learn how to pull it off.

  • First things first! Fit is everything. Especially for suits. Even the world's most expensive suit will look bad if it doesn’t fit you properly. Not too big, not too tight. Just perfect.

  • I don’t like white suits or very light coloured ones. But it’s my personal opinion. So I would say go with dark colours. Not everything has to be colourful.
  • It doesn't have to be boring! Even if you wear a suit in navy, black or grey you still can add some colours and details with your tie or accessories. Polka dots are a great way to bring energy to a suit. You can use it with your shirt or tie. Bold colours for ties, watches or bracelets look ‘cool’ too. Also a pocket square (I’m not a fan of them but…)

  • It is impossible to look pulled together when your jacket isn't buttoned. (Three-button jackets: middle button only; two-button jackets: top button only; one-button jacket: that one button.) But always unfasten your jacket buttons when you sit. No exceptions.
  • Never underestimate the value of that half inch of shirt cuff jutting out under your jacket. 
  • Always go bold with your cuff-links.
  • You don’t have to wear tie with every suit.
Suits with/without tie

  • The difference between classic and cliché is often in the material. 
  • Never wear a suit without a belt.
  • Brogue boots add the perfect rugged touch to your favorite casual suit.
  • You may always try different styles with your suit. Don’t hesitate to show you personality!

  • Blue jacket with black collar… My favourite. I'm also a big fan of waistcoats inside the suit jackets.

This one is a tuxedo but still... I loved it. You can use some creativity to turn these colours and style into a suit. :)

Accessory Guide for Men!

No matter what style dilemma you've recently been dealing with, there's always an accessory that will solve it. Having a bad hair day? Sort it out with a beanie which makes you look cool in cool days. You think your outfit is very simple? Just wear a trendy leather bracelet and a men necklace to make your look in a style.

Finding the right details to finish off an outfit isn't something most guys think about. From neckwear, glasses, belts, and bracelets,  there are many ways to have a ‘effortlessly stylish’ look. You just need to know which one or ones are for you. So… Here is a men's accessory guide just before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Pick one!

  • Hats and beanies - A hat is a great addition to your outfit. Casual hats with a black framed glasses give a playful vibe and a scholar look to a business or a casual  smart look. For example, throwing on a navy or grey beanie with a navy blazer, khaki chinos or jeans, grey jumper, rugged boots, a printed scarf , and a messenger bag is a great touch. It shows you put effort into your outfit but without a big effort.

Nixon compass grey beanie: £15.96
Bench men's chorlton oversized beanie: £14.99 £11.99 
Quiksilver Caribou hat black: £30 
Grey wool fedora: £ 41.16
  • Glasses and Sunglasses – Sunglasses are not just for summer anymore. When you see a little sunshine just put them on. Besides in winter season if you are a snowboarder or a skier your sunglasses are for 12 months. And drivers… You never know when the sun hurts your eyes while driving. If it’s a very grey there without any sunlight then you may go with coloured framed glasses for a scholar look. In both cases be sure to know your face shape.

Oakley StyleSwitch sunglasses in crystal black black: £156.00 
Reclaimed vintage round sunglasses:  £35.81 

Garrett Leight 'Abbot' glasses: £219.85 
  • Scarves - I know… You are tired of reading  about statement scarves but it’s such a big and important trend that I can’t finalize any posts without mentioning it. For a formal  look you may go with loop knots (fold the scarf in half and put the loose ends through the loop). For a more casual look just swing the scarf around your neck and letting both ends hang on each side.

G-Star Matthew Scarf: £80.00 
G-Star Jason Scarf: £120.00 
G-Star Milton Originals Scarf: £50.00
  • Belts - They say women can’t walk properly without a bag. That’s not true. But we do feel naked without a bag. That’s true.  I think the same situation must be for belts and guys. Guys (You) MUST feel themselves naked without a belt. It’s that much an essential! Belt rules are easy to get right: If your pants have belt loops, wear a belt with them. For a formal look make sure that your belt fits with your shoes. For a casual look go with ‘outstanding’ ones. Try contrast colours.

G-Star cooper belt: £60  
Scotch & Soda ethnic woven blue belt: £ 24.36  
Paul & Joe Emerson burgundy dotted belt: £ 71.40
Dsquared2 BELT: £84.00 
Armani embossed cracked leather belt: £98.99 
  • Bracelets, necklaces, and watches – I don’t know if it’s just me but I think men wearing bracelets, watches, and necklaces are very sexy! When it comes to bracelets don’t wear too many. 1-2 is enough. 
- An elegant necklace or a pendant seen behind your shirt or V-neck t-shirt/jumper… Nothing can be that sexy! When it comes to chains & necklaces, always think simple, clean and a little bit traditional. Don’t go for thick gold chain ones! Never! Male chains tend to be constructed slightly thicker than their feminine counterparts, so don’t assume you’ve got to buy the heaviest looking piece. 

Philipp Plein round metal men's necklace: £177.50 
Icon Brand billy rock necklace: £20.00£16.00 
Leather and stainless steel multicoloured necklace: £24.99 

- Men who wear bracelets are mostly the trendy, cool urban/city guys who care about his look. Especially with a rolled-up sleeves they look very cool! Trust me!

  • Tribal men's brown leather bracelet: £13.15
    Forzieri Di Fulco Line stainless steel men's bracelet: £63.50 
    Vivienne Westwood pete metal bracelet:  £85.00 
    Vivienne Westwood otho leather bracelet: £75.00 
    Cerruti stainless steel brown leather bracelet:  £75.00 
    Just Cavalli route brown leather and rubber bracelet: £95.85 
    Bottega Veneta Intrecciato oxidised silver bracelet: £335.00 

A great watch makes a huge statement. Lately, affordable watches have been getting stylish upgrades from the variety of different bands available from retailers. It just needs to sync up with your lifestyle and your daily outfit. A leather strap watch is a MUST HAVE! If you accomplished this then you may have colourful or stainless steel ones too. Like any other piece in your wardrobe, your watch needs to make sense with the rest of what you're wearing.

    Fossil Nate black stainless steel chronograph watches: £156.20 
    ATOP unisex watch WWS-1A: £160.00 £107.00
    Tissot gents T sport stainless steel bracelet watch: £260.00 

  • Gloves – I must say only go for leather gloves. Maybe it’s the biker charisma or something else but men should wear only but only leather gloves. That’s my idea and I’m standing behind it! They are also functional you know. J You can keep your hands warm. Try to make it good with your watch too. 

Hugo Boss leather black gloves: £75.00 £71.25 
UGG Australia leather gloves: £169.00 
AGNELLE Brown iPhone gloves with wool lining: £ 105
