Sun Valley style

Photos by Paulette Phlipot. Styling by Hayley Andrews

Mountain town fashion is decidedly schizophrenic. Rookie visitors are apt to bring clothing that skews to the practical (read: boring). But many women—no matter how athletic—demand a bit more style. It’s not all about the gear.

Mountain fashion must be versatile: fit for hiking and the wine bar, biking and the symphony. Accessories are vital. Sporty, fashion-forward sandals that last comfortably through the days and nights are de rigueur in this hot, dry climate. And when the sun is high and fierce, don’t forget the shades. At night, with the chill that comes when the sun dips behind the mountains, chic jeans are as important as a good pair of hiking boots.

Worldly valley visitors and residents expect the best. Fortunately, a myriad of boutiques, sports shops and even second-hand stores are strewn along valley streets. As a wise woman once said: Shopping is a woman’s form of hunting. This summer, savor the thrill of the chase.

—Dana DuGan
