Editor Note: We’ve been working on this new feature for a while now. I’m so thrilled to introduce our Monthly Style Picks. Cass Estes is the style guru, who is helping us find stylish hiking gear. We’re starting our series off with UPF Clothing, essential protection for your skin.
Spending the day out in the blazing sun requires some extra planning. Often, figuring out what to wear can be a challenge. I bounce back and forth between exposing my skin and lathering it with sunscreen or donning some sun protective clothing. More often I choose the latter knowing my skin is safe.
I have selected some basic and not so basic styles to feature, I’m kind of in love with the wide leg pants that tie on the side.
Most of these styles are available in additional colors. Because it is late in the season several are on sale : ) Another one of my tricks is to get my clothing wet, this can really cool you down especially if there is a breeze. Have fun on your next adventure!
A Couple Long Sleeve Options
Left: Splurge a bit This Athleta Sunlover top is a nice piece without being fussy. The overlap detail on the side allows for air to move around your body, keeping you cool. It comes in four different colors
Right: Stick to the Budget The Old Navy Rashguard has a cute lace up detail. It only comes in teal and a charcoal grey but the price is definitely affordable.
Don’t Forget Coverage for Your Legs
Lastly, A Sweet Dress and a T-shirt with Style
Left: This Mountain Hardwear dress is stylish and breezy. It’s perfect for your next adventure on or off trail. (Trust us, it’s actually really nice to hike in a dress)
Right: The Wick-ed Cool t-shirt by Royal Robbins has a fun back detail and a nice fit.
