Team Snow, look alive! This one is for you. As much as we love to ski and snowboard (and as you know, we really do), the sweetest part of a ski weekend can be après-ski. When we ask friends about the best places in the world to ski, part of the conversation is always about what there is do after everyone comes off the mountain. Which leads us to an even more pressing question: what to wear après-ski? Our correspondent Julie Chang Murphy has come to our rescue with her style tips on the the best luxury looks for après-ski this year.
Fall designer fashions are hitting stores and e-commerce sites right now. What’s new – or at least still a bit under the radar – that you should know about for fall-winter 2019? Well, for sure there are several female-led luxury fashion brands on the rise about which we’re excited that you may not yet know about. Our correspondent Jillian Tangen has an overview of the 10 trending luxury fashion brands you need to know about in fall 2019.
Tartan plaid, like leopard, is one of those fashion elements that never really goes away. Especially at this time of year, when the temperatures drop, and the holidays are on the horizon. But this year, for some reason, designer brands are showing more tartan than we remember seeing in quite some time.

Leopard prints are ubiquitous for fall-winter 2018-19, making it a perfect time to invest in a piece or two.
