Clothes That Are Cute by the Campfire and Functional, Too
Car camping may just be the best of both worlds: you get a little bit of nature without having to miss the comforts of home (or bathroom). If this sounds like your next camping trip, then these cute, comfortable, and functional clothes — perfect for any outdoorsy, moderately active weekend — will keep you dry, protected, and feeling cute while you hike, camp, and lounge by the fire.
Lululemon Fast and Free Jacket
For a little extra sun and bug protection on the trail, sport the Lululemon Fast and Free Jacket ($128). It will keep you covered while allowing your body to breathe, yet it's lightweight enough to stuff in your day pack if you start to get overheated on your hike.
Merrell Moab Mid Ventilator
During a hot day hike, you'll be glad you opted for the breathable yet sturdy Merrell Moab Mid Ventilator ($100) hiking boots. They grip rocky trails and give you the ankle support you need without making your feet feel like burning coals.
Fjall Raven Pocket
Admit it: as much as you want to connect with nature, your outdoor home makes a pretty good Instagram. Keep your phone, wallet, sunscreen, and other essentials close by — no matter what camping antics you get up to — with a cute, lightweight, crossbody Fjall Raven Pocket ($40).
L.L. Bean Bandanna
If you're spending any time at all in nature, this L.L. Bean UV Buff Headwear bandanna ($27) might just be your new best friend. It has built-in UV protection and insect repellant, so you can tie it around your head or neck to feel a little more comfortable no matter what you're doing.
Roxy Energy Capri
For regular moderate trail hiking and lounging by the lake, these not-too-tight, quick-drying Roxy Energy Capris ($68) provide enough protection from dry brush and mosquitoes while allowing you to move freely.
