Stylish Outdoor Attire

Enjoying outdoor activities shouldn’t have to mean a dearth of style. On the contrary, there are lots of ways to look cute while you hike, camp and otherwise commune with nature this summer. We’ve sourced some functional and fashionable finds aimed at making sure you not only feel comfortable, but look great, too.

Mary Jane style shoes

Versatile footwear

Footwear for outdoor activities need not be clunky. We were impressed with this pair of lightweight, comfortable, Mary Jane style shoes perfect for enjoying the great outdoors (, $100). The breathable suede uppers from Merrell not only look cute, but they offer durability, great support and reflective detailing for added visibility at night.


Hiking skort

Add a feminine twist to your hiking or camping ensemble with this cute cargo hiking skort (, $55). The lightweight, durable (and totally stylish) skort comes in three hues -- juniper, limestone and slate blue -- and looks great with a fitted tank and your favorite hiking shoes.

Comfortable shorts

Comfortable shorts

Whether you’re going to be hiking in the woods or cuddled up on a campsite, comfortable, durable shorts are a must. We like this lightweight gray pair made from durable organic cotton (, $59). Wear the simple but stylish shorts with a vibrant T-shirt and you’re set for a day of outdoor fun.



Tank tops are great as a first layer when it’s really hot outside, or as an under-layer when you need extra insulation on chilly nights. We’re partial to this pretty turquoise tank top made from breathable, moisture-wicking material (, $55). The vibrant hue will add a fun pop of color to any outdoor outfit and the sleek design and sweetheart neckline make for a flattering fit.



It tends to get chilly at night when you camp, so be prepared with this ultra-comfy (and totally cute) hoodie with a body-skimming fit (, $50). The longer design creates a lean silhouette and the overall comfort makes this a must-have for all your outdoor adventures.

Cargo pants

Cargo pants

Add this cute pair of cargo pants to your list of camping or outdoor essentials (, $55). They’re cute enough to wear every day (as in even when you’re not sitting around the campfire) and we love the sleek, stylish design. They boast multiple pockets, a flattering fit and a comfortable design.

These are all awesome! I am actually taking a camping trip soon and was at a loss as of what to pack. I am definitely not an outdoorsy person so this was very helpful!

I am not a big fan of the hiking skort. They went out in the 90s, and should never return! The shorts and pants are great! And if the trip is going from day to night, a hoodie is essential.

What a great idea! I hate going camping for this reason specifically, I never know what to wear! These are all very cute, comfy and very practical ideas.

Loving the hoodie and the cargo pants. Not a huge fan of the skort though. They just confuse me and I feel like they always make me look awkward.
