Believe me when I tell you that you will be the envy of every single person at the bar when you show up for après time wearing anything from Tipsy Elves. Selling everything from ugly ski sweaters to retro one piece ski suits, these guys have a corner on 80s nostalgia gear. And then some.
The folks at Tipsy Elves acknowledge they might not be for everyone. Instead, the brand hopes to attract those people that live by the motto, “When life hands you lemons, you make Fireball shots.”
The Sunrise Shredder Ski Suit (pictured top) is for any child of the 80s that had a sticker collection and wore turtlenecks with high-waisted jeans. Pair this one piece ski suit with some Pit Vipers and you will make Sarah, Duchess of York, proud. But given the generic 100% waterproof nature of the ski suit fabric, expect to possibly sweat uncontrollably while wearing it.
For those not into the one piece ski suit look, check out the company’s ugly ski sweaters — they went on Shark Tank in 2013 to originally raise money for their ugly Christmas sweater line (it’s a multi-million dollar business, by the way) and have now broadened their range. Pair your ugly ski sweater with some acid wash jeans, headband, and a classic mullet — those are making a comeback, too, right?
