Whether you’re an avid adventurer or newly tapping into your outdoorsy side, hiking clothes and accessories are necessary. Though technical pieces and hiking gear are the fundamentals of any practical hiking outfit, we’re proponents of making every ensemble as elevated as can be. So, we’ve uncovered stylish designer pieces that make for adequate hiking clothes and look ultra-chic on a mountain or hiking trail.
When putting together a hiking outfit, the pieces and silhouettes you tend toward for a workout are a great starting point. Leggings with pockets, utility pants, and racerback bras are great functional staples to build from. A sprinkling of trendy styles such as bike shorts, tie-dye attire, and bold-shoulder tees are a stylish next step. Then, it’s all about the functional-luxe finishes. Think boots, sneakers, or sandals with tread soles( Prada, Fendi, Balenciaga and Moncler make exquisite versions), a protective hat like Gucci’s woven wide-brim or Acne Studios’ nylon sun hat, or a logo-lined sock, like those by Paco Rabanne. In cool weather, a fleece, windbreaker, or hoodie is a stylish top layer—Sandy Liang, Canada Goose, and Virgil Abloh’s Off-White make some of the best.
From leggings to shorts, boots to jackets, and hats to backpacks, ahead, discover our edit of stylish hiking clothes and accessories by way of 12 so-chic outfits, inspired by some of our favorite notables. Not only will these hiking outfits stylishly gear you up for an outdoor adventure, they’re functional for a range of outdoor activities, from leisurely walking paths to intermediate hiking trails and beyond.
