Chowing down on s’mores, sharing stories around the campfire, and sleeping under the stars. What’s not to love about camping?
Well, it can be hard to be your cute stylish self when you’re braving the wild out in nature. But, it’s also totally possible to be cute and stylish while camping — at least, on the first day!
Here’s what to wear on your camping trip, whether it’s warm or cold outside.
What to wear if you're camping in warm weather
Before we even get into what to wear when you’re camping in the summer, let’s tackle the essentials: You have got to pack bug spray and sunscreen! Otherwise, your trip is not going to be very much fun — trust us!
With your skin protected from bugs and sun, you can feel free to wear shorts and tank tops to stay cool. If you’re planning on going hiking, pack leggings or cargo pants to protect your legs from brush.
Depending on where you’re going camping, it might cool down at night, so pack a light jacket and a blanket to snuggle up. We love a blanket scarf because it’s stylish yet functional.
Camping wears out your feet, so bring a good pair of sneakers. Pack more socks than you need, too. Feet tend to get a bit stinky when you’re roughing it, and a fresh pair of dry socks can feel like a luxury!
Is there a lake or creek near your campsite? Fantastic. Pack a bathing suit, towel, and sandals. Don’t forget your hat and sunglasses!
Finally, fill up the cooler with your favorite rose wine, a bottle opener, and some beer. Enjoy your camping trip!
What to wear camping in warm weather:
- Tank tops and shorts for the day
- Light jacket or blanket scarf for night
- Leggings or cargo pants for hikes
- Bathing suit for swimming
- Hat and sunglasses

What to wear if you're camping in cold weather
If you’re camping in cold weather, you can probably leave the bug spray at home, but you’ll still want your sunscreen to avoid getting burned. It seems counterintuitive, but if there’s snow out, the sun can reflect off it.
Speaking of snow, pack waterproof outfits in case it gets rainy or slushy. Rain jackets and rain pants are light enough to slide on top of your clothes. The more layers you have on, the better, anyway! Layering tanks, long-sleeves, flannels, and sweaters are all your friends on a cold camping trip.
If you’re not planning on rain, long-sleeve shirts and waterproof vests will keep you warm but not too hot.
No matter the weather, you’ll want heavy socks and boots that can handle it. For your other extremities, pack a chic beanie, gloves, and a scarf. A blanket scarf works just as well for cold camping trips as it does for warm ones.
Finally, pack sunglasses (they look super cute with a beanie), your favorite hot chocolate or tea mix, and some beer — no cooler required!
What to wear camping in cold weather:
- Lots of layers to stay warm
- Waterproof jackets, pants, and vests to stay dry
- Heavy socks and boots to stay comfy
- Beanies, scarf, and gloves to stay cozy

What about accessories?
Keep your jewelry simple on camping trips. A little bit of glam goes a long way, without actually getting in the way.
Add some sparkle with a chic pair of studs, and add some shine with a bracelet or bangle. A hairtie bangle is perfect for camping trips. They’re sturdy enough for the outdoors, with an extra hairtie whenever you want to pull your hair up.
Here’s to the great outdoors!
Roam often, stay stylish.
