Fashion stylist Vanessa Taylor is inspiring us to get outdoors and enjoy some fun in the sun. When you’re thinking of outdoor fashion the number one thing to keep in mind is fabric. You want to be able to move and be comfortable without compromising style.


Fashion for the intrepid camping couple

The Intrepid Camping Couple

On her: Have some fun and mix prints with some quirky pieces when camping. Birkenstocks are officially back in style. They're the footwear item of the season in addition to being the perfect shoe for walking around the campsite.

On him: This look was inspired by the hunter’s palette, mixing camouflage prints with neon orange. Layering is a must when enjoying the outdoors. Look for tech fabrics like coated cotton — some brands sell a wax that you can apply at home to transform the jacket into a waterproof piece. These pieces are also great because they all seamlessly transition into your into your city wardrobe.

Fashion for the RV couple

On her: This amazing Liberty print shirt dress has been styled as a dress with a leather belt, but it also works as a cover up and tunic if you're by the lake and want an easy throw-on layer. This Tilley jacket is great because it’s got tons of stretch and is very wash and wear friendly — wash it and it will be ready to wear in the morning!

On him: A stylish utility jacket that would work if you’re heading to a restaurant, but also great for a hike or time outdoors — the sleeves zip off if you’re feeling too warm. These Tilley pieces also offer a lifetime guarantee.

Comfort is key: look for pieces with fantastic cuts, three-way stretch, flat seams and great silhouettes. Other fun details are strategic venting, cinching in all the right places to ensure you’re comfortable whether you’re canoeing or hiking. 

UPF clothing is made from a tight knit which offers some great additional sun protection for the kids on areas like the back of the neck and shoulders.
