So with the new season slowly approaching, I'm planning to get a pair of nice pants but I'm looking for some help in color...I know it might be a sort of a shallow question but this will also be the first time in many many years that I'll have my own gear and I might as well not look stupid.
I have this jacket:
I would normally go with black pants just because it goes with everything and doesn't show dirt as much but as you can see, my jacket is pretty much all black so I doubt I'll be going that direction. I was thinking white for the contrast but I'm afraid it'll get dirty. My skis are pretty light in color (mostly white with some light green/blue/red) so I thought maybe a light color from that scheme? Any advice would be appreciated.
I'm also wondering if I should get ski pants or snowboard pants. I've read that snowboard pants are generally more baggy than ski pants, which sounds nice because I have tried on ski pants before that fit but were tight and didn't feel too comfortable to move around. I do realize there's a slight difference as far as certain padding for each but I've read many skiers like to wear snowboard pants for their comfort. Is there a brand or type of pants that anyone would recommend for comfy skiing?
