HOW TO SPORT YOUR OUTDOOR GEAR IN WINTER

By customising your very own winter sport accessories, of course.

Earlier on in the year, the entire world’s attention was directed towards the competitive spirit of the 2018 Winter Olympics; and from the slopes to the ice rinks, we took our hats off to world’s elite athletes. But as the seasons seem to change faster than you can you can say “bobsled”, and for Aussies, it’s time to put our wooly warmers back on.

While the talent stole the spotlight, so too did this season’s trends; and some brands garnered an enormous amount of attention with their Olympian-donned accessories.

The team at Mitchells Cap Co. was also feeling a little inspired by the game’s skiing sensations, which is why it’s only fitting to prepare for the snow by sporting the warmth and protection of all the essentials.

From competitive to leisure, Alpine to Nordic, here’s the ultimate guide to wholesale headwear and accessories for those Thredbo thrill-seeking conditions:

“…THE ULTIMATE SHREDDING CONDITIONS WITH A SPORTING STYLE…”

You can chase away the chills and top off your Olympian vibe by designing your very own wholesale beanies to effortlessly deliver brand awareness. For those whimsical winter days, a pom pom is a well appointed cinch on the resort and ski aesthetic. But what about the high-performers that are taking on those grand slopes? You’ll need to provide them with the ultimate shredding conditions with a sporting style that doubles as a barefaced, but ever-so-effective promotional tool for wholesale purchase.

Chunky cable-knit, crochet, basket weave and waffle knit toppers with simple labelling were all the rage among our 2018 competitors, keeping them warm, snug and stylish; but a less pragmatic, yet relaxed and slouchy-style would better serve the trendy après ski crowd.

GLOVES AND MITTENS

“…THINK ABOUT HOW YOU CAN MARKET YOUR STYLES TO THE RIGHT AUDIENCE WHEN CUSTOMISING YOUR WHOLESALE ORDERS.”

Even your hands should abide by this season’s trends, and the Olympic medalists who took center stage as they bared the cold weren’t seen to bear any dated, run-of-the-mill gloves or mittens. That’s right, slopestyle was taken to a whole new level in 2018. Keeping your hands dry and warm is important, but so too is keeping them stylish and streamlined. Think jacquard knit, leather, bold hues and embellishments, or play it safe with classic wool.

For those who prefer comfort over function, the mitten is a warm and obvious choice. But naturally, dexterity is also an essential criteria for certain events, and gloves will offer you the capacity to grip your ski poles or snowboard. If you’re unsure which slope to slide down, just think about how you can market your styles to the right audience when customising your wholesale orders.

SCARVES AND NECK WARMERS

“…IN THE FASHION WORLD AND ON THE SLOPES, SCARVES ARE HERE TO STAY…”

Jackets alone just won’t do.There’s nothing better than throwing on a soft, plush fleece layer to warm you up in the snow.

Although the temperature were well below freezing, the style game of the world’s elite athletes was coming in red hot. Not only were scarves the perfect means of protecting the Game’s snowboarding aficionados from the harsh winds, but they’re also the perfect choice when it comes to choosing your business’ winter merchandise. With the abundance of winter sport scarves starring on the streets and on the runway, what better way to pay homage to the glorious slalom savants?

Because in the fashion world and on the slopes, scarves are here to stay. And then there’s the loop scarf that does a great job of staying on during sport. Or the fringed acrylic or luxuriously soft wool option for a warm and cosy season of great ski-style.

Now’s the time to start thinking about this year’s autumn/winter lines.
