Live This Summer! Essential Pieces for Adventures!

Summer is the perfect time to engage in a range of outdoor activities, from hiking and biking to gardening and beachside volleyball. Having the right clothing can make these activities more enjoyable and ensure you stay comfortable and stylish. Here are essential pieces that should be part of any summer activity wardrobe, including the versatile and beloved overalls.

  1. Overalls: Overalls are a summer staple for those who want a blend of comfort, functionality, and style. They're perfect for a casual day out or for more physical activities like gardening or casual hiking. Choose lightweight denim or cotton overalls for breathability. Look for adjustable straps for a customizable fit and plenty of pockets to keep your essentials close at hand.
  2. Breathable T-Shirts: A good collection of breathable t-shirts is non-negotiable for active summer days. Opt for materials like cotton, bamboo, or performance fabrics that wick away moisture and keep you cool. Bright colors and fun prints can add a playful touch to your look, while neutral tones are versatile and easy to match.
  3. Athletic Shorts or Skorts: For activities like running, tennis, or even brisk walks, athletic shorts or skorts provide the necessary freedom of movement. Choose pairs with built-in moisture-wicking properties and a comfortable waistband. Skorts, with their shorts under a skirt overlay, offer a feminine touch while maintaining the functionality needed for physical activity.
  4. Lightweight Footwear: Proper footwear is crucial for any summer activity. Trail shoes are great for hiking, while comfortable sneakers or breathable flats work well for less demanding activities. For water-based activities, consider water shoes or sandals with good grip and support.
  5. Protective Hats: A wide-brimmed hat or a sporty cap protects your face and neck from the sun while keeping you cool. Look for hats with ventilation features or made from UV-protective fabrics for an extra layer of sun safety.
  6. Versatile Outerwear: Even in summer, mornings and evenings can be cool, especially in certain climates. A lightweight jacket or a zip-up hoodie can provide warmth without being too heavy. Choose materials like thin fleece or breathable synthetics that can be easily tied around your waist or stuffed in a bag when not needed.
  7. Sunglasses: Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays with a good pair of sunglasses. Opt for polarized lenses if you're around water or engaging in activities where glare reduction is beneficial.

Incorporating these pieces into your summer wardrobe will prepare you for a wide range of activities, ensuring you stay comfortable, protected, and stylish. Whether you’re climbing a mountain, playing on the beach, or just enjoying a backyard barbecue, these essentials will help you make the most of the sunny season (check out our Play Collection today!).
