Most of the time, packing for a holiday is an easy task. If you're heading somewhere hot and sunny, you just throw a few bikinis or a couple of linen shirts into a suitcase and the job's done. However, packing for a skiing holiday is a completely different story. Not only do you have to think about what to take and whether it'll keep you warm, you also have to work out how it'll all fit. If you're hoping to partake in some Après-Ski activities, you'll also have to consider whether something looks as good as it insulates...it's never-ending!

Well, to make it a little easier, I thought I'd put together my top style picks for Après-Ski this upcoming season. Not only will these options keep you toasty, they'll also look fabulous, allowing you to party into the night without having to do a clothing change half way through.

You can't go skiing without at least one bit of fair isle, and this has to be my favourite so far.
