There are times when you go for a simple hike, or you might just want to walk around the lake, or the weather is simply too hot, you may want to consider wearing shorts instead of pants. When I decided to rewrite this topic for hiking shorts ideas, I give myself the restriction of not including denim shorts in the list, otherwise it would probably be just another list of ideas for denim shorts. So what I mean by hiking shorts are either khaki shorts, cargo shorts or bermuda shorts, also called walk shorts. Now let's dive into the list of some of the best hiking shorts dresses.
Bermuda shorts with sleeveless heather gray top
This hiking gear can really represent what a hiker should wear in the summer. This is something very functional, not fancy, but still looks decent and sporty. The suit consists of a sleeveless heather gray top, khaki bermuda shorts and hiking shoes.
Wear with long sleeve tee & floral headband
Whether you want to protect your arm from tanning or from being scratched by tree branches, it's a good idea to have a long sleeve top. For example, you can wear hiking shorts with a long-sleeved t-shirt. A floral headband fits well with this outfit by adding a touch of casualness and it is of great help even when you are sweating like crazy.
Cargo Shorts with White Boho Vest Top
It almost always seems to work when you wear something boho style in nature. However, it is a bit surprising to see that it also works for hiking clothes. You can simply wear a white boho style top and pair it with cargo shorts and hiking shoes. With the backpack and headband it is a functional and comfortable hiking equipment. The boho touch simply melts into the rest of the pieces.
Pink hiking shorts with long sleeve print Tee
This suit involves bermuda shorts of pink, a color you rarely see for hiking shorts. I want to include this outfit idea in the list, mainly because I want to show how the color of pink can really look good and make you stand out from the rest in an outdoor environment. That is why you see more and more pink jogging clothes today. It's time to bring more pink to hiking clothes too. As an example of a pink hiking suit, you can wear a long sleeve print tee with the pink hiking shorts.
Bermuda shorts with sweater and hiking boots
When it comes to very easy walking or just a walk around the lake, you can reduce the sportiness a bit and add a touch of elegance to your outfit as you probably won't have to carry a huge backpack. As an example of what to wear in these types of scenarios, you can wear a cream knit sweater with color-matching bermuda shorts and hiking boots. As I mentioned in another blog post, hiking shoes are as beautiful as they are functional. You may want to check out this blog post for more hiking shoe ideas.
Wear with navy blue and white striped T-shirt and baseball cap
This outfit shows how you look sporty and beautiful at the same time. Wear a navy navy blue and white striped t-shirt for the top. Wear goose shorts with hiking shoes and a shirt tied around the waist. The excellent choice of accessories is what sets this outfit apart from the rest of the list. The accessories are sunglasses and baseball cap. The layers and colors of all the pieces just seem to fit so well. This is easily my favorite outfit idea among the list. If you have previously tried to look beautiful when wearing a backpack, you would know how hard it is and you would understand why I love this outfit.
Hiking shorts with black V-neck T-shirt
Sometimes you can keep things really simple by wearing a walking shirt with hiking shorts sometimes to walk an easy route. For example, you can wear the shorts with a black v-neck t-shirt and sneakers. To be honest, sneakers are often sufficient when we talk about really easy walking. Sometimes hiking is intense to keep body and mind in shape, other times hiking can be very easy and simply let you breathe some fresh air and clear your mind a bit.
Black Walk Shorts with striped vest top
As another example of lightweight hiking costume, you can wear a striped vest top with black hiking shorts and sneakers.
Knee-length cargo pants with white top
If you want more protection for your legs from being scratched by rocks and plants while the weather is too hot for pants, you may want to consider wearing knee-length cargo pants. You can simply pair it with a white vest top, hiking shoes and a backpack.
Wear with sleeveless denim shirt
Here is a creative outfit that gives a denim shirt to the hiking world. To remove this you need either a sleeveless denim shirt or a short-sleeved one that you can roll up your sleeves and DIY your own sleeveless shirt. Simply pair your shirt with khaki pants and hiking shoes. The shirt looks surprisingly well matched with the rest of the hiking suit.
Khaki Gray Shorts Hiking Tee
Sometimes, when you think the combination of t-shirt and shorts is too boring, you can actually do something about it by wearing a printed tee instead of a solid tee to deliver a message or simply look cute with it printed graphics.
I hope you like the list of clothing ideas for hiking shorts that are actually not that easy to put together when I force myself to not include the denim shorts. If you like a blog post like this, you might also want to navigate our site to check out thousands of more outfit ideas.
