The air is crisp and the leaves outside are beginning to change colors–it’s officially fall. What better way to enjoy the beauty of this special season than with a day hike through its natural splendor? We’ve done the prep work already and gathered the gear you’ll need for your autumn excursion. With these stylish and durable essentials, you’ll be fit to get from mile one to as far as you’re willing to go.
As with any occasion, attire matters. First and for most, your hiking ensemble should be comfortable and practical and with our top picks, you won’t have to forgo fashion either. Glam’s go-to pants for any physical activity made the cut, as Lorna Jane’s 7/8 tights are quick drying and conveniently supportive. On top of your choice tee or tank, throw on this patterned Patagonia pullover for colorful coziness. It’s a piece that can easily transition to daily wear this fall and winter and be worn with jeans. Lastly, choose a thick pair of socks and boot up in your super breathable, ultra waterproof Ahnu Montaras. No broken ankles, soggy stockings, sore feet, or hot spots in these babies. With a stable heel and flexible foot, they’re designed specifically to fit a female’s stride, planting, and physical structure for ultimate longterm comfort.
With your sturdy day pack filled with all the necessities–a cord free Boombot Rex to blast tunes from your phone, plenty of water, a first aid kit, and healthy, high protein snack like Zego bars, you’re set to set out. Now pick your favorite scenic trail and get out there, glam girl!
