Dressing appropriately for a hike can go a long way toward keeping you comfortable. Choose light colors: Wearing light colors that reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorb them (as dark colors can) helps keep you cool. Look for shirts, shorts and pants in white, tan or khaki.

How should I dress for a summer hike?
Consider bringing a lightweight loose fitting and breathable long sleeve top in your day pack. For bottoms, if zip off pants aren’t your thing (I can’t stand them) bring a pair of lightweight leggings or ankle length pants. When hiking in the Badlands last summer, I was so thankful to have a long sleeve top.
What should a girl wear on a summer hike?
A short-sleeve t-shirt or tank-top under a long sleeve t-shirt is the best. This way, you have a warm shirt for colder morning or evenings. Then you can just take it off and tie it around your waist if it gets too hot. If it is especially chilly, you can also wear leggings under hiking pants.

How can I look more fashionable when hiking?
To successfully layer your hiking look, start off with a base item, such as a tank top or t-shirt. Then, add more garments over the top, such as a flannelette shirt, sweater, and puffer vest. If the weather is extra cold, you can even layer leggings or tights beneath your pants.
Can you wear leggings to hike?
Yes, you can absolutely wear yoga pants while hiking (though leave cotton yoga pants at home). More people than ever want a single pair of tights that can work in many situations, from running to the grocery store to hiking in the mountains.
Should I wear makeup while hiking?
Yes, I know there are many waterproof makeup products out there to keep all that jazz on your face stay put throughout the day. So, wearing or not wearing makeup for a trek should always be a matter of choice. Just make sure to keep your makeup light and fresh before you leave your home.
Are jeans good for hiking?
Jeans are heavy, absorbent, and they take a long time to dry. When you’re backpacking, all clothes and other belongings should be as lightweight as possible, so denim really isn’t ideal. Hikers need to wear warm, waterproof, and moisture-wicking clothing, so denim just isn’t an appropriate material.
Should you wear bright colors when hiking?
Bright colors are the safest colors for hiking. Neon orange, yellow, and bright red are great choices for making sure hunters and other hikers can see you. Earth-tones are preferred by many hikers to reduce visual noise and avoid being noticed.
What should I wear for a day hike?
Depending on the temperatures, here’s what you’ll need: A moisture-wicking base layer or t-shirt in a material like polyester. A basic long-sleeved shirt that will act as your next layer of warmth (similar to socks, merino wool is an excellent fabric choice). A lightweight, insulated jacket that packs up small.

Hiking pants are worth it because they’re comfortable, lightweight, and dry quickly. Not only do hiking pants offer comfort, but some hiking pants are even designed to convert into shorts. Furthermore, the fabric makes these pants a good choice for hiking in nearly all weather.
What shoes should I wear hiking?
DO WEAR Tevas, Chacos, or Keen-type water shoes or sandals that are made for this type of terrain. Sandals are fine as long as there are straps over the toes and around the heels to prevent your feet from sliding around once they’re wet. DO WEAR Running or athletic shoes that can get wet & muddy.
