Shopping in Verbier
While skiing in Verbier, there is also the chance, between double ski sessions, for some shopping. You can buy ski equipment but, also have fun. Verbier has a large selection of shops of all kinds.
But be aware that for some, that chic mountain fashion can be a challenge. It is a fact, whether you live in the city or near the mountains, usually our wardrobes don’t have the kind of clothing you need here. You might regret your jeans and high heel boots, in the cold and snow. It’s hard to keep your usual style in places like this.
Once you are settled in your chalet or hotel in Verbier, a unique setting, facing the Combin and Mont Blanc massifs, there’s time to stroll around the central square near the station, where the majority of the shopping can be found. You’re on vacation, so take your time. You can always come back, if you have doubts. It’s a luxury you can afford, and you can have more fun here than in the city with its crowds, with their phones pressed to their ears, which prevent you from making calm purchasing decisions. In addition, the choice of articles needed for the mountains will certainly be larger and more varied in our resort. Shopping in Verbier is a perfect time to complete technical wardrobe: jackets with aerodynamic shapes, smart fabrics with colourful patterns, sexy après ski … all it takes to face the delicacy of winter and the mountains with style and elegance.
The slopes have always been a place to demonstrate fashion,style and dress as much as skiing style. Here are some pictures from the last century showing some ski clothing trends, in an article in the The Guardian
