#OOTD: Wear This Rugged Gear to Layer Up for a Summer Camping Trip

Our #OOTD series here at the old Style Guide tends to cover a bevy of summer style essentials that are a bit more refined in nature. As in, not exactly the type of gear you’d wear to scale a mountain. We’re changing that approach ever so slightly in today’s #OOTD, as we tell ya just what to wear on a summer camping trip. That’s right — we’re going off-road and off-trail to get you outfitted in rugged hiking boots from Danner, plus a classic henley and a tough overshirt. Those are but a few of the pieces you’re going to need to get from the city to the trail … and then back. I’ll leave it up to you as to how you’re getting there and what else you might be bringing (I’m not quite an expert when it comes to tents and the like), but I do know that dressing the part can go a long way. The right camping gear can help you tackle an early morning chill or keep hiking those few extra miles, and it can even help you feel a little more comfortable (witness the essential Flint and Tinder Mill Pants as featured below). Regardless, I hope these tips help you get ready for your next trip easily and stylishly. If you find yourself in need of other, more casual seasonal style staples, check out this post. In the meantime, let’s get to it!

The  biggest takeaway here? Some of your favorite menswear essentials can even work to wear when camping. Take the Flint and Tinder Supima AirKnit Henley — it’s as rugged of a henley as it gets, and it’s more than ready to layer up underneath the Staywax Camp Shirt. Together, that combo is going to help you get through many a long hike, an early morning or a late night around the campfire. The pants you should wear to do it all? Easy. The durable Flint and Tinder Mill Pants are just the ticket, perfectly suited for casual weekends or quick camping trips alike. The same goes for the Danner Explorer 650 Boots — they’ll provide comfort, durability and rugged style on summer nights and weekends. I also think you can’t go wrong with the unique styling potential of the Cause and Effect Leather Belt. And the tough style and dependability of the Marathon Diver’s Quartz Watch is exactly what you need when taking things off-road on a summer camping trip. Simply grab the Peak Design Everyday Backpack, throw on your reliable Huckberry Explorer’s Cap, then get out there and go after it. See? Camping can be stylish (and fun!) as heck.
