Outdoor Clothing Fall Essentials
Things are starting to cool off all around, and now is the perfect time to get your outdoors wardrobe in order.
Fall 2016 women’s outdoor clothing fashion looks a bit toned down than last year in terms of color. You’ll see more earth-tones, black and white designs, with the occasional vibrant color splash. One hot color this season is dark blue, featured in pants, tops, coats and accessories. Another visible trend is minimalism in design, with greater emphasis on the functionality of the items.
This year’s designs for women with an active lifestyle are also more breathable and odor-resistant. You’ll find more and more lightweight options, not at the expense of durability and functionality of course.
So if you plan on traveling, hiking, camping, climbing, doing Yoga or simply taking a walk outside, we’ve got some of the best essential outdoor clothing items of the season lined up for you right here.
