What's Hot for Girls
For What's New in 2002/2003 CLICK HERE
Girls can do whatever boys
can; duh. But they don't necessarily want to look like them on the slopes any
more than they do at school. As a result, the look in girls' clothes for the slopes
is moving away from the unisex look of the past and toward a more feminine silhouette.
For next season, Backhill's
Girls Core jacket and pant, designed with help from Backhill Team riders Kari
White and Elena Hight, include the same technical fabrics and features as the
boys' pieces, but are anatomically fit for girls. Fabrics are also lighter, to
accommodate more body-hugging shapes. In Fera's line for teenage girls next season,
jackets are not too long; ending at the hip and slightly shaped, while sleeves
are straight. Colors are mauve, light blue, light gray and white. Three of the
new styles in CB Kids are specifically designed and colored for girls.
Cold As Ice offers lots of fun styling and great colors in the Stardust line. Daisies, flower power and cootie catchers - lots of great color combos and functional features such as interior draw cords and rubberized snow cuffs make for a great on snow outfit. Stardust sizes go from six to fourteen and are ultimately cool. Check out our Rippin' Riders reports throughout the season for the inside scoop.
Spyder's Venom Freeride for girls features styling with more
curvy lines and feminine colors, like pink, lavender, blues and greens. The sleek styling combines such performance features as removable suspenders, inner snow cuffs and micro fleece lined collars.
Young girls will love Spyder's "Bitty Picabo" line with functional jackets, pants with attached fleece vest, and suits in the rainbow palettes of purple, turquois and pinks. Matching accessories (mittens too) complete the outfit. Sizes from 2T to 7. Obermeyer's Preschool line combines feminine prints and faux fur with the "Grow with Me" features parents love.
