Button Down Shirts
Vests can add warmth without being too bulky, but they can also provide some added storage for hikes / walks or other outdoor activities.
A great pair of sneakers seems almost a given but I can honestly say I have gone camping and left my sneakers at home. Trust me, take them! In the mountains I like a regular pair of sneakers with a good tread. I don’t own rugged hiking sneakers (I have boots) but unless we are doing serious hiking, a good pair of sneakers is fine. At the beach, we do a lot of biking and walking so sometimes my sandals aren’t enough. For those trips I love my converse. They are comfortable while looking a little better with a casual dress.
Maybe socks are a no-brainer but it’s the kind of socks that is key. For hot days, I love a close fitting, thin, no-show sock to wear with my sneakers. When it’s cooler, I love the options from Woolrich. I own several pairs of these and wear them all the time in the winter and when we camp in cooler temperatures. They are perfect worn with boots! A great pair of moisture wicking socks is also great for hiking and other outdoor activities while camping.
You can never go wrong with a pair of jeans for sure. I never go camping without at least one pair. Cargo pants are also a great style but go for a fabric that is fast drying. My favorite pant options are convertible ones that can be worn as long pants or zipped off or rolled to capris. Even with jeans, I suggest going for a straight leg that can be rolled to a wide cuff for warmer days.
Going camping, whether in a tent or in a modern RV, most likely means spending lots of time outside doing at least some physical activity. Regardless of the kind of camping trip you are taking, there are some items of clothing that will be functional and practical while still making you feel good about what you are wearing. I hope these suggestions provide you with some helpful suggestions for your next camping trip.
