Wilderness Couture: Camping Closet That Doesn’t Compromise Style

The campfire won’t be the only thing that will be smokin’ on your next camping trip! This style guide to wilderness couture will make sure that your camping closet doesn’t compromise your personal style! Who says you can’t be both fashionable and functional while camping?


You don’t have to go full glamping to stay fashionable while camping! We acknowledge that all women are different, and many choose to keep things simple when in the wilderness, but there’s no shame in taking your sense of style along with you either! Here are plenty of great ideas for clothing and accessories that are both trendy and comfortable for your adventures!

Summer Styles

Sun Hats

Sun hats and floppy-brimmed hats have been a big trend over the past few years! Not only will you look stylish, but you’ll be protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful rays!

Sports Bras

Strappy demi bras have been huge lately, but they aren’t very practical for camping or hiking! You can still enjoy this trend with a stylish sports bra! If straps and crisscrosses aren’t your thing, pick a cute color or pattern and you’ll stay well-supported for any activity!

Headbands and Buffs

Bring along some cute headbands for when your hair is on day three of a dry shampoo (no shame!) These can add a nice personal flair, but can also be functional! Buffs are versatile and can be worn for a variety of uses from headbands to scarves!

Yoga Pants and Leggings

Who doesn’t like to be comfy? Yoga pants and leggings are great for a variety of activities from light hiking to lounging by the campfire! The variety in colors and patterns will allow you to show your unique taste! Invest in some with higher-quality material to avoid rips and snags while you’re out exploring!


Just like regular clothing, swimwear comes in a variety of styles and colors, and is a good way to bring along your personal style while you’re out in the wilderness!

Fall and Winter


As the weather turns, pull out your soft flannel shirts and you’ll definitely stay cozy! Flannel has been trending for the last few years, and is a favorite with many because it comes in tons of styles! Layering is another way to say fashionable, so pair your flannel with a cozy vest for added warmth!

Thermal and Fleece Leggings

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you have to abandon your leggings for the season! Fleece leggings are so warm and cozy, with plush inner linings that will make it feel like you’re wearing a fuzzy blanket no matter where you go! Thermal leggings are great for cold weather too, especially for outdoor activities, as most of them feature moisture-wicking material so you can stay warm and dry!

Boot Socks

Who doesn’t love a great pair of socks? Boot socks come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, and are super fashionable with cute trim and buttons! Wear a cute pair of merino wool boot socks with duck boots and you’ll be looking on point during the colder months!


Men like to look good while camping too! Although there isn’t as much of a variety of clothing for men, it doesn’t mean you can’t bring along your favorite trends into the wilderness! Celebrate your rugged side with these mod ideas!

Plaid and Flannel

When you think of rugged camping, what’s the first thing that comes to mind for men’s clothing? For us, it’s plaid, and it’s not just for logging camps! It’s warm, comfortable, and an easy trend that even fashion-impaired guys can pull off to look dapper!


A good pair of boots are ideal for a variety of outfits! Just about every brand of top outdoor clothing outfitters sells sleek hiking boots that add a touch of modern style! This is great for all those guys out there that think one pair of shoes is all you need in a wardrobe! This time, they’ll be right!

Cargo Pants/Shorts

Cargo pants have been the butt of many fashion jokes since about 2004, but they’re great for camping! Sleeker, tighter-fitting styles and modern cuts transform these pants from their former made-for-dad-bod design into smart and functional outfit staples!

Something For Everyone

There are plenty of fashion trends that are great for everyone! Enjoy these smart items to keep your camping style going!


Sunglasses are important for any outdoor excursion to keep your eyes protected, and come in tons of different styles! It’ll be easy to stay healthy and looking good!

Punny Camping-Themed Shirts

What better way to show your love for both camping and fashion than with a shirt laden with camping puns? A quick search shows everything from funny puns and pop-culture camping references to just plain cute designs!


Layering is both fashionable and functional to help keep you warmer when it gets cold out! Pop a vest over your plaids or fleece jackets and you’ll be cozy and look good!

Portable Glamping Tents

You don’t have to go to a resort to go glamping! Bring the safari tent with you wherever you go! Ok, so this isn’t necessarily something you’d find in your closet, but it totally captures your free spirit and taste for the finer things, if that’s your style! Decorate the inside with throw rugs, tapestries, and more!

Winter Wear

You absolutely need durable winter accessories if you’re camping or exploring in the snow, and it’s a good opportunity to show off your snowy style! Beanies and headbands never seem to go out of style, and come in endless trendy patterns and materials! Gloves, scarves, and mittens are great too!

The Perfect Kicks

A great pair of tennis shoes goes a long way while camping! They come in tons of different colors and patterns for a variety of uses, so lace up and show off your awesome footwear!
