Everything you need for stylish après-ski fun
Still not sure what to wear when relaxing after hitting the slopes this season? How about a Nordic Winter look from Marie Lund?
The best thing about these outfits is that they are not only perfect for the mountains but also the ideal option for evenings cuddled up by the fire or strolling around the Christmas market.
The Nordic Winter look:
This trend presents the extra-special softer side of fabrics and silhouettes. With their warm and feminine yet robust garments, powerful colours, winter designs and Nordic charm, these looks are not only impressive on the piste, but also away from the slopes. They bring back the fashion of the 1970s in a grand revival and make every outfit a real eye-catcher.
The most important it-piece of the look: the classic Norwegian jumper
The colours: Bold highlights such as bright red and also black, white, grey and cream are the most important shades of this trend.
The must-haves: Norwegian jumpers, skiing sweatshirts, zipped jackets, checked shirts, cord skirts, sports trousers, polka-dot scarves, patterned knitted hats and headbands
And while we’re on the topic of Norwegian jumpers: Did you know that the Norwegian jumper doesn’t actually come from Norway, but from Iceland? In the native language, it’s known as the “lopapeysa” and is traditionally made of thick chunky-knit sheep’s wool. It made a name for itself thanks to the first environmental movements in the 1970s and is now a top trend that is an absolute must in every wardrobe.

The make-up to go with the look:
In order to achieve a true Nordic Winter style, you also need to use the right make-up to go with the look. Red lipstick and nail varnish in the same shade form the perfect harmony. If you’d rather go for a more extravagant option, try adding a touch of silver to your eyeshadow and nail varnish. This helps to provide clever accents and is sure to make your look truly eye-catching, especially in an après-ski setting.

The drink to go with the look:
As it starts to get colder outside, hot drinks to keep you warm on the inside are an absolute must. Our favourite tipple is this punch created by Germany’s youngest celebrity chef, Jan-Philipp Cleusters. Here’s the recipe so that you can try it out for yourself:
500ml Sencha Claus No. 983 tea
100ml brown rum
150ml freshly pressed orange juice
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anise
Zest of one unwaxed lemon and one unwaxed orange
Melt the sugar in a saucepan and deglaze with the hot tea. Stir to dissolve the resulting caramel. Turn the heat down to medium in order to ensure that the liquid does not boil. Use a peeler to remove the zest from the orange and lemon and add it to the liquid. Stir in the rum and orange juice before adding the cloves, cinnamon and star anise. Leave the punch on the heat for approx. 20 minutes. To serve, slice the lemon and orange and place a few slices in each glass before pouring in the punch. Your delicious winter punch is now ready to be enjoyed. Cheers!
