LOOK FASHIONABLE YET PRACTICAL WHILE HIKING
When you think about fashion, you think about heels, a cocktail dress, and the most delicate accessories. Therefore, when you want to go for a hike, you put aside all fashion choices for a more practical attire. However, just because your gear is practical, that doesn’t mean it can’t be fashionable.
So, if you are looking for some inspiration to spice up your hiking gear, you have come to the right place.
Here are a few ways you can look like a diva on your next outdoor trip:
Proper footwear could be the difference between slipping and breaking your neck and getting through your hike with ease. You have to make sure you’re comfortable in the footwear you choose or else all the fun would be sucked right out of a good hiking trip. Big, clunky hiking boots, while being stronger, are meant for those with a strong body frame. However, for those with a delicate frame, these boots can be a burden to carry.
You can choose sneakers specially designed for hiking, they are lighter to carry and won’t slip as often as a regular one. They are available in different colors, so you can choose a bold one or a more neutral shade. Remember to wear socks as they will prevent blisters on a long hiking trip.
While it is tempting to dive into the world of hiking gear, it can get pricey and you will come out looking bulky and unfashionable. The key is to buy thegear you really need or gear that has multiple uses. A swiss knife isa such example. Another example would be tactical paracord watch. These paracord watches come with multiple uses and are fashionable as well. The paracord, itself can be used as a Firestarter flint, fishing line and first aid equipment for tying tourniquets and sling. The watch has multiple uses as well, such as a compass, whistle, flashlight and a stopwatch. So, you don’t need to carry all these items, when you have one watch that does it all.
The durability along with style makes these watches perfect for hiking. To find out which paracord watch would be best for your needs, you can visit an online guide like the Himalayan Experience. They provide an in-depth review of the watches as well list all the cases in which they would be helpful.
Further, buy a compact, sleek looking backpack that is waterproof and dust resistant, this will keep all your belongings safe. You can choose a bold color like hot pink or neon yellow to stand out.
Shirts and Jackets:
Depending on the weather, carefully choose your shirt. If it’s cold, then wear thermal shirts or shirts with under armor, they provide you with breathability while being warm. One problem with layering is no matter how cold it is outside, your body can still get overheated. To avoid that always go for breathable fabrics that hide odors well and absorb any moisture.
Go for jackets with zipping as you can adjust them according to your needs. You can also wear a vest on top of your shirt. These vests are good for keeping you warm while providing you with comfort. They are also very fashionable without compromising any practicality. Just remember to make sure they’re waterproof.
You can try out some performance leggings, they are comfortable and are easy to move in. Choose one with perforated panels on the side. These look stylish and provide you ventilation. You can also try cinched hiking pants. Just make sure you have pockets for access to necessary items. Ditch jeans as they can get you sweaty and won’t do anything for the moisture.
