Glamping Fashion Makes A Big Splash For Summer

There used to be a time in the past when fashionistas avoided the rugged terrain of nature, and preferred to enjoy the summers sipping cocktails on rooftop patios or reclining by the pool. However, times have changed, and the boys’ club of camping trips has now expanded into a new world of glamping. Popular among groups of girlfriends escaping from the city limits, glamping or “glamorous camping” offers an opportunity to relax in style. Whether you are staying in a cabin or cottage, glamping also calls for the perfect laidback yet chic fashion. On Instagram, all manner of plaid shirts, airy day dresses and cotton blouses have been making a grand entrance. If you are glamping this Summer 2018, here are a couple of fashion outfit ideas to keep in mind.

Fantastic flannel: No longer just for lumberjacks, the flannel shirt is quickly returning as a wardrobe for the summer. Before you escape for your weekend in the wilderness, take your cues from this Instagram look and rock a classic camping outfit. A red plaid flannel shirt looks effortlessly stylish when styled with a cropped white top, and worn with a pair of black, high-waisted leggings. Whether you want to pose for snapshots amongst the greenery or stun in a lakefront selfie, flannel is a key look.

Oversized tunics: The cotton or linen tunic may be an essential for a casual Friday at the office, but it also makes just as much sense for a weekend of nature and BBQs. We are liking this Instagram glamping ensemble, which features a loose white shirt styled with distressed denim and also a colourblocked tunic dress. Meanwhile, aviators and strappy wedge sandals bring the outfit to new heights.

Printed frocks: For a more luxurious camping getaway, try dressing up in a patterned day dress and flat sandals (as seen here). The cap sleeves, feminine blue print and cottony fabric spotted here make this a versatile yet trendy look. If you prefer lounging in a beautiful cabin to roughing it in the woods, a similar frock just might suite your tastes.
