This time of year, my Instagram feed is filled with fashionable people hitting the slopes. Somehow, all of them look incredibly stylish as they swerve through pine tree–lined, snowy mountains. Even those who dress for skiing just to sit in a cabin and drink hot chocolate look well-dressed. As I contemplate whether or not I should book a ski trip before the ice caps melt, I worry that my travels will require me to purchase a brand-new luxury wardrobe just to fit in. After doing some thorough research, I'm here to report that's not the case.

My research has led me to retailers like Free People and Nordstrom, where I've discovered that skiwear doesn't have to break the bank. Below, find 32 under-$300 pieces that can help you build out an excellent ski wardrobe.

Sierra Mayhew was always destined to work in fashion, but she didn't know it at first. Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
