Fashion Blog Strawberries 'n' Champagne by Andrea Steiner from Switzerland shows trends and new styles for winter season.

Just to have style on the slopes, when powdering or après ski is not enough. The right winter clothing needs a lot more.

Wintersports belongs to Switzerland as does surfing to Hawaii. A Swiss national sport that is indispensable. Although I’m more of a summer type, it’s a fantastic feeling to drive down the slopes with my snowboard. I love to bend over the snow and enjoy the (mostly) nice weather in the mountains.

The difference from flatland fashion to the outfit in a ski resort is that functional, warm and comfortable clothing is a MUST in the mountains. Without these qualities, I do not spent a long time in the snow or on my board. So the outfit has to bring a lot of different things and not just “just” look good.

At Planet-Sports I found my winter gear that has all these qualities. In addition to the online platform, Planet-Sports also has its own stores in various German cities. They offer not only winter sports clothing but also summer and outdoor equipment as well as streetwear, shoes or accessories. Also, in terms of branding, they have a lot to offer: Roxy, Quicksilver, O’Neil, Burton, or Volcom are just a few of many brands they have in their repertoire.
