Hiking (and any outdoors activity, really) got even more popular during the pandemic because it’s a great way to socially distance while still enjoying some fresh air. Now we’re well into 2021, and the desire to be outside isn’t going away anytime soon. So we rounded up a bunch of cute hiking outfits and clothes for you to wear the next time you plan a hiking trip or decide to explore some of the trails around your area—lucky you!
There are tons of different types of hikes too, from the ones where it’s really just walking on a slight elevation to the ones where you’re deep in the woods and dealing with some steep switchbacks. Any way you slice it though, I’m sure you want to look stylish even when you’re super sweaty after you made it to the top. There are lots of leggings, shorts, boots (my fave are from Merrell if you were wondering), jackets, and tops that’ll prepare you for any intense or leisurely hike ahead. Need even more inspo? Check out these activewear brands for other options and this list of the most beautiful trails in the U.S. Someone needs to take me to that one in Hawaii, please!

The Danzy logos on this matching set give it a preppy look, but don’t be fooled: The cotton is breathable and the spandex gives it the perfect amount of stretch. It also features a fun rainbow stripe down each side for a splash of color!

if it’s hot outside
Concord Grape Shorts
If you’re hiking at the peak of those brutal summer temps, it might be best to go with a sports bra and shorts (and don’t forget plenty of water!). Loving the hue on this set.
if you’re going to brunch after
Bedford Seamless Python Pattern Leggings
Okay, so the plan isn’t to hike the whole day…it’s to hike for, like, an hour and then hit up that outdoor restaurant later with your roomies. If that’s the case, this chic snakeskin printed set is totally for you.
if you like that outdoorsy look
How cute is this tri-colored anorak and short set?! Simply remove the jacket when you get warm and tie it around your waist for that gorpcore vibe.
if you want a minimal ‘fit
Quadra Crew Neck Shirt SS Women’s
If you don’t want to be too fussy with your fashion, put on a workout tee, shorts, and your go-to sneakers for a simple but still stylish hiking trek.
if it’s chilly out
Permafrost Half Zip
During those early morning hikes, it can still be cold outside when you’re waiting for the sun to really come out in full force. In that case, a cozy fleece half-zip will keep you covered and the teal leggings add some color.
If You’re Hiking for Exercise
Midnight Compressive High-Rise Legging
Wear your normal cropped workout top with matching leggings and sneakers, then add a hat to block the sun and thick, chunky socks to protect your heels from inevitable blisters.
If You Love an all-black ‘fit
Densonic Stretch Shorts
A pair of shiny cycling shorts will give you all-day comfort on the trail, while still looking fashion-forward. A cropped hoodie and white sneakers make it edgy but keep it practical.
If there’s still snow on the ground
If you live near some serious mountains where the snow hasn’t fully melted, you might want to bundle up with this teddy bear zip-up hoodie from Varley and some dark-colored leggings.
