We had a wonderful fashion question from one of our readers that we want to share. “Headed to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for the holidays. I have never been there but I plan on skiing and doing a lot of outdoor activities. It is supposed to really cold but I still want to look fabulous. Any suggestions?“
“My son, Jake was in Jackson Hole last winter and we had a ball when we went to visit. Jackson is such a rugged, cowgirl town and great fun to dress for it.” We went shopping at our friends at GlamourpussNYC to find the perfect 1. Fur Vest, then to Ralph Lauren to fill in the rest of the packing list – a great pair of #2 Suede Pants, a cozy #3 Cashmere Sweater and other #4 Tops with Western Flair. Add a #5 Rugged Bag and a pair of great #6 Must-Have Boots and you are good to go girl! As always, we recommend packing in a color scheme to streamline the process and here we choose earthy shades of browns and creams that reflect the landscape in this evocative western towns. To see all of our specific packing lists and advice, please go to W2WW PACKING LISTS. For daytime outdoor activities, please see our selection of SKI JACKET FROM GORSUCH.

There are three areas of Jackson Hole that you will want to visit, The Town of Jackson where you will find the famous and fabulous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, fantastic restaurants and super shopping and strolling, Teton Village at the base of the mountain, and the East Gros Ventre Butte, just inside the park, where you will find the Aman Resort and Spring Creek Ranch. Nothing is very far, but we would recommend renting a car to get out to explore the areas most breathtaking rugged vistas. Everywhere you glance there is vast, western beauty from the towering mountain range.
