Stay Fashionable in the Outdoors

Thursday, July 30, 2015

If you’ve decided to go on a trip to the great outdoors, you’re likely hoping for an exhilarating adventure with awesome landmarks, perhaps a bit of hiking and even a sunny picnic against a spectacular backdrop. While bright blue skies, lush green hills and sunbeams are fantastic, we all know they aren’t always guaranteed. When it comes to the outdoors, you need to be prepared for rain or shine. However, dressing practically doesn’t mean compromising on style. Here’s how to look (and feel) outstanding on your outdoor adventure.
Head covers, earmuffs and visors
Adequate headgear shouldn’t need to involve a drawstring hood that flattens your hair and squashes your features! Think of alternative pieces of headwear that still offer weather protection yet look good. Flat caps, earmuffs, knitted headbands, deerstalker hats all offer practical protection with added panache!
A lightweight jacket for all weathers
When you’re exploring the outdoors, you’ll need a quality waterproof jacket. You also want something that’s stylish, warm and not too heavy. It sounds like an impossible combination, but there are clothing brands out there which strike the perfect balance. For instance, you can’t go wrong with a classic Barbour jacket and it’s worth looking online for a super-duper version with a big variety to choose from.
Waterproof footwear
‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad preparation.’ At least, that’s what a lot of outdoor explorers say! Staying dry — and in particular keeping your feet dry — for the whole day is absolutely essential if you want to make the most of adventuring. Stylish green wellington boots pretty much go with everything including shorts and dresses for a summer or festival vibe. Lace up mountain boots can look surprisingly cool, especially if you go for an unusually coloured leather in navy blue or dark grey and fab, bright, wool socks.
Double-duty trousers and shorts
Military or safari-style trousers that can be zipped open to create shorts offer a great fashionable and flexible look. Khaki shorts are practically on the catwalk every year so they should really be a wardrobe staple anyway. If you’re buying a pair of trouser shorts, go for water-resistant styles so that you can go from hiking to kayaking in one smooth move.
Once you’ve sorted your outdoors look with a few of the above choice pieces, top it off with some tinted moisturiser (with SPF) for your face. Outstanding outdoor style means looking great from head to toe!
