If you have an upcoming snow trip planned or just want to get the look minus the freeze, we've tracked down some fabulous ski-inspired pieces to help you look chic to the max from the slopes to the streets.

In Fab-land, it's always prime time to rock glitter, but especially during the holidays. Tory Burch just came out with these glitter-covered booties ($395) that would dazzle anyone's feet.
