There are times when it’s easy to hike or just stroll around the lake or the weather is just too hot. Maybe you’re wearing hiking pants instead of pants. When I decided to write on this topic of hiking shorts outfit ideas, I gave myself the caveat of not including jean shorts, otherwise this would probably just be another list of jean shorts outfit ideas. What I mean by hiking shorts are either khaki shorts, cargo shorts, or Bermuda shorts, also known as walk shorts. Now let’s dive into the list of best hiking pants outfits.
Bermuda shorts with a sleeveless Heather Gray top
This hiking outfit can really represent what a hiker should wear in summer. This is something very functional, nothing fancy, but still looks decent and sporty. The outfit consists of a sleeveless mottled gray top, khaki Bermuda shorts and hiking boots.
Wear it with a long sleeve t-shirt and a floral headband
Whether you want to protect your arm from sunburn or scratches from tree branches, it’s a good idea to wear a long-sleeved top. For example, you can wear hiking shorts with a long-sleeved t-shirt. A floral headband goes well with this outfit by adding a touch of nonchalance. It’s also very helpful when you’re sweating like crazy.
Cargo shorts with white boho vest top
It almost always seems to work when wearing a boho style in nature. It’s a little surprising to see that it’s also suitable for hiking outfits. You can simply wear a boho style white vest top and pair it with cargo shorts and hiking boots. With the backpack and headband it’s a functional and comfortable looking hiking outfit. The boho touch blends in perfectly with the rest of the pieces.
Pink hiking shorts with a long-sleeved t-shirt
This outfit is the Bermuda shorts in pink, a color rarely found in hiking shorts. I want to add this outfit idea to the list mainly because I want to show how the color pink can look really good and make it stand out from the crowd outdoors. That’s why you see more and more pink jogging outfits these days. It’s time to add more pink to hiking outfits too. As an example of a pink hiking outfit, you can wear a long-sleeved t-shirt with the pink hiking shorts.
Bermuda shorts with sweater and hiking boots
When it comes to very basic hiking or a stroll around the lake, you can scale back the athleticism a bit and add a touch of elegance to your outfit since you most likely won’t need to carry a large backpack. As an example of wearing in such a scenario, consider wearing a cream colored knit sweater with tonal bermudas and hiking boots. As I mentioned in another blog post, hiking shoes are as beautiful as they are functional. Check out this blog post for more hiking shoe ideas.
Wear it with a navy and white striped t-shirt and a baseball cap
This outfit shows how to look sporty and pretty at the same time. For the top, wear a navy and white striped t-shirt with three-quarter sleeves. Wear it with hiking pants, hiking boots and a shirt around your waist. The excellent choice of accessories sets this outfit apart from the rest of the list. Accessories include the sunglasses and baseball cap. The layers and colors of all the pieces just seem to match so well. This is easily my favorite outfit idea on the list. If you’ve ever tried to look beautiful with a backpack, you know how heavy it is and you’ll understand why I love this outfit so much.
Hiking shorts with a black V-neck t-shirt
Sometimes for an easy trail you can keep things really simple by wearing a shirt with the hiking shorts. For example, you can wear the shorts with a black V-neck t-shirt and sneakers. To be honest, when it comes to hiking that easily, sneakers often do the trick. Sometimes hiking is intense to keep your body and mind in shape, sometimes hiking can be very easy and you can just breathe some fresh air and clear your mind a little.
Black walk shorts with a striped vest top
As another example of a lightweight hiking outfit, you can wear a striped vest top with black hiking shorts and sneakers.
Knee length cargo shorts with white waistcoat
If you want to protect your legs from being scratched by rocks and plants while the weather is too hot for pants, you can wear the knee length cargo shorts. You can easily combine it with a white vest top, hiking shoes and a backpack.
Wear it with a sleeveless denim shirt
Here’s a creative outfit that brings a denim shirt to the world of hiking. To achieve this you will need either a sleeveless denim shirt or a short sleeve shirt that you can use to roll up your sleeves and make your own sleeveless shirt. Simply combine the shirt with khaki pants and hiking boots. The shirt looks surprisingly good and goes well with the rest of the hiking outfit.
Khaki hiking shorts with gray printed t-shirt
If you think that the t-shirt and shorts combo is too boring, sometimes you can do something about it by wearing a printed t-shirt instead of a solid t-shirt to convey a message or just with the printed graphics look cute .
I hope you enjoy this list of hiking shorts outfit ideas that are actually not that easy to put together if I force myself not to include the jean shorts. If you enjoy a blog post like this one, you can also navigate our site to discover thousands more outfit ideas.
