Trendspotting with PlumpJackSport's Meg Millar

Message from Meg
Every year I look forward to my time at the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver where a close community of buyers, suppliers and athletes come together to share new ideas and unite as a powerful advocate for environmental issues and the protection of public lands. This was my 12th year at the Ski tradeshow and I love viewing the latest in ski and snow apparel for the following season. Some of my favorite brands including SOS Sportswear, Bogner, Toni Sailer, JCC for Rosignol did not disappoint. These brands are some of the most innovative and fashion-forward technical ski brands, and I feel so lucky that we are one of the exclusive retailers in North Lake Tahoe to carry these lines. I also had the chance to check out some new brands that we’ll be introducing to the store next winter. Check out my picks below

Here are the trends I am most excited about

  • One pieces are back! Keep your eye out for JCC and Bogner next winter.

  • We’re seeing a lot of great pops of yellow, like the marigold yellow from Bogner’s one-piece and the bright sporty yellow in JCC.

  • Stretch pants are also making a comeback with great stretch and fun colors. The shop favorite remains Erin Snow Phia Pant and the Toni Sailer Alla Pant.

New brands coming to PlumpJackSport next winter

  • GOGO Sweaters – I really fell in love with these chunky POP handknit sweaters from Canada. They are a great cozy addition to the wardrobe.

  • Almgwand – these fun and inspired ski sweaters from Austria will compliment our current, popular AlpNRock line.

  • Goldbergh – a new luxury sportswear collection that emphasizes trendy and bold, yet technical. They also have an incredible one-piece suit by Pucci that I predict will be the hottest in holiday fashion next season. The best part, PlumpJackSport will be the first retailer to carry the line in California.
