Sadly, the tail end of summer is on it's way for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. Before we mourn and start adding 'pumpkin spice' flavor to everything in sight, lets make the most of the warmer nights by experiencing the great outdoors with a camping trip. Camping no longer means roughing it with messy hair and old paint-stained clothes. It's a chance to reconnect with nature (and get some great Instagram content to make your city dwelling friends jealous, if you're that way inclined.) Whether seeking out the best accessible hiking trails or just making s'mores around a fire in your backyard, we've put together the ultimate Camping Trip outfits from IZ.
Wearing our Straight Leg Cargo Pants is a no-brainer - but don't take our word for it, read this amazing quote from one of our favorite customers, Fred: "Living in rural Colorado the cargo pant is more of a necessity than a fashion statement. These pants are tailor made for the type of rugged outdoor activities that are the norm in the mountain west. The fabric is heavy enough to protect your legs and be durable enough to withstand the abuse of a multi day camping trip, but dries quickly if you get caught out in a mountain rain storm. The pockets are located so they are easy to reach and hold quite a bit. One is zippered so you can put valuables in it and not worry about losing them, while the other has a Velcro flap for those items that you need quick access to. The fit is spot on and they stay up through multiple transfers or while riding on an ATV. These are definitely my go-to pants any time I'm headed into the high country!"
Team them up with our Heavyweight Plaid shirt that's perfect layered over a comfy tee with the sneaky functionality of side zippers. Finish the look with a nice boot - we like this pair from Timberland and don't forget to pack your camera to capture all the fun. This one's our favorite - Olympus OM-1.
Here at IZ, we condone Leggings as pants always, but if there's a time where it's especially acceptable, it's while camping. Cozy, comfortable and uncomplicated, our Sweater Cape is the right choice for layering up top. Sun hats are cute, but they're also your best friend while you're braving nature. Keeping your face shaded, and keeping you warmer in the evening. We love this wool felt style from RVCA. Pack your entire outfit in style too, with the rugged and refined backpack by Coach. With IZ and the right accessories, you'll be a happy camper!
