If the sight of Jamie Anderson flying through the air or Mikaela Shiffrin masterfully navigating gates at the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea has you inspired to make your way to the mountains — or at the very least help you find your way to colder climes, then it’s imperative you look the part whether you intend to ski a single turn.
Designers of every flavor have gotten into the graphic, ski-inspired sweater game by creating an array of women’s styles that work as well on the hill as they do in the lodge (with a hot toddy in hand). From options with the word “ski” embroidered across the chest to others that channel a vintage vibe, this winter season’s toppers all earn a gold medal for their winning flair.
