Camping In Style
camping is, unsurprisingly, generally perceived to be a time to let loose, relax and become one with nature — not exactly an opportunity to look cute and stylish while roughing it out on some remote location. but honestly, who says you can’t do both? if i were to go camping myself i’d surely pack a few wardrobe pieces that are not only comfortable to wear in the great outdoors, but would also lift up my spirits when days ran a bit too long or dreary. if nothing else, i’d want to make sure i look my best no matter the setting, anyway.
layer it up
a lightweight jacket is a must for whenever it gets a little cooler during your camping trip. it comes in handy when it ends up raining as well, and there are lots of different routes to go, style-wise. you can find a variety of great styles at AXparis, and you can bring a couple of these jackets with you so you have an extra in the event one of them gets too dirty or wet. bonus: lightweight jackets also help protect you from bugs and bug bites during your time exploring the great outdoors!
why not take one of fashion’s most popular trends to your camping trip as well? a nice-fitting tank top will keep you as fresh as possible even on the hottest summer days. go for athletic tank tops that are made from materials that are not only lightweight, but also designed to wick away sweat so that you can remain cool and comfortable. and hey, don’t forget to match it up with your favorite yoga pants or cozy joggers to complete the athleisure look (pops of color also work great with this, fyi).
made for walking
depending on the location of your campsite and the activities you have planned, your shoes will have to be chosen accordingly. standard pairs of trainers work in most camping settings — as long as you are willing to get them a bit muddy and roughed up! — but sturdy sandals and hiking boots are similarly great options to bring. just remember to feel them out before your camping trip to make sure they are comfortable for day-long wear, and take a few pairs of cushy socks as well.
when all else fails, handpick your favorite comfy tees, shorts and jeans for some fun mix-and-matching on your camping trip. throw in a couple of button-up shirts and a wooly beanie for added coziness, and you’re all set!
if you pack the right pieces for your summer camping trip, you’ll look and feel your best no matter how dirty or sweaty you end up getting as you set up your tent, cook food by the fire, and go on new adventures with your camping buddies. making new memories never looked so stylish! 😉
