If you lack ideas on how to look your best for your outdoor adventures, here are a couple of tips you can follow to look dope.
Know Your Destination
You should know the place you are going. Why? Because that will determine what clothes you’ll be wearing and what stuff to bring. If you’re traveling on a rough terrain or a place with lots of bugs and itchy plants you may want to bring and wear breathable cover-ups.
Dress For The Climate or Weather
The climate of the place affects greatly what kind of clothes you’ll be wearing. With today’s tech, you can check the weather app for the most possible weather prediction in the area. If it’s rainy, pack your jackets or raincoats, sunny and warm then wear something lighter and cut down layers, cold or windy then add more layers plus a headwear to protect your whole body.
Dress For Comfort And Style
After knowing the destination and weather in that place, it’s time to pick what outfit makes you bring out your personality and being comfortable but not forgetting about style. When you go outdoors, you want to be engaged with the nature making you feel free and happy. You don’t have to sacrifice your personal style to be comfortable. When you open your closet or shopping for clothes, find pieces that would let you effectively walk farther and endure activities for long.
Pick Your Favorite Outfit
After picking the comfortable and stylish ones, it’s time to choose your favorite outfits. Choosing some of your favorites will help you feel more confident when traveling and doing activities. Pick neutral colors, such as black or navy, or light colors such as white.
Wearing comfortable, stylish clothes on your travel is enough, but if you want to up your game, then maybe put on some accessories such as waterproof watches, sunglasses, a fitting headwear, and outdoor gloves.
Choose Lightweight and Wrinkle-Free Fabrics
Go for loose not baggy, lightweight, breathable cloths to make you comfortable all day long. Synthetic and polyester fabrics are good choices, especially during outdoor activities when you want to wick away the moisture.
Wear The Right Outdoor Shirt
Outdoor shirts will make your adventures worthwhile and in control of what happens to you during extreme activities, especially ones that wicks sweat away.
Wear Outdoor Shorts or Outdoor Pants
Outdoor shorts will make you feel more comfortable and freer to move around while outdoor pants will serve more protection for your lower body. Both are stylish though, but it all depends on you, the terrain and weather.
Pick Some Fresh Outdoor Underwear
This is not a laughing matter, but there’s quite a humor to it. Seriously, you want to stay down there fresh all day since you won’t have much time to change your undies during the day, or do you even?
Bring The Best Backpack
Make sure your backpack can hold all your extra clothes, food, and stuff. It should also look stylish for the outdoors.
Choose Your Footwear
Grab a pair of shoes or boots comfortable enough to endure activities and go well with your style. Try not to wear brand new shoes on your adventure trip to avoid blisters and tearing them at first use. Wear socks so your feet don’t get cold, to protect it, and keeps you fresh. Choose socks that wick away moisture.
Always Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated during the trip or adventure is a must. It will help you look and feel refreshed.
Eat Healthy Meals or Snacks
It’s often easier to grab on junk and fast foods. The truth is, they won’t help you feel and look your best. Try to prep healthy meals and snack, such as sandwiches, fruits, sliced veggies, nuts and seeds for your trip.
Wipe your face with wet towel to remove dirt and oil. Freshen your breath by brushing your teeth, chewing on mint. Reapply deodorant if needed and spritz some cologne to smell cool and fresh all day.
Make Use of Your Down Time
Sleep in the car while on the road to make you look and feel refreshed when you reach your destination. Take time to rest, relax, and enjoy the beautiful scenery during your down time from hiking, backpacking, or camping.
Wear A Smile
There’s nothing more looking your best than wearing that pleasing smile of yours even in strenuous activities. Helps you to look friendly and better on the camera.
