7 Things You Need to Wear While Camping With Your Boyfriend

When camping with your boyfriend, you may want to wear the perfect date outfit, but you need to remember that you are going to be outside in the woods somewhere.

Therefore, remember comfort and functionality are vital. With that said, you can still look cute even in relaxed-styled clothing.

Layered Clothing

Layering clothing is essential for you to wear and have packed if you are going camping. If you get too hot, you can always remove a layer, and if you get too cold, you can add a layer to help keep you warm.

This way, you can mix and match your outfit(s) and be functional while staying fashionable.

Comfortable Shoes That Can Get Dirty

If you have gone camping before, then you know that your shoes are going to get very dirty with mud, dust, sand, etc.

A great pair of comfortable shoes to wear while camping would be any old sneakers or boots. If you have comfortable hiking boots those are also a great choice.

You want to keep your feet dry, safe, and comfortable.

Comfortable Clothes That Can Get Dirty or Smoky

Just like with your shoes, you are going to need to wear clothes that you are comfortable in, and that can get dirty or smoky.

These clothes should be soft material that allows you to breathe and stretch out so that you can relax and take a nap in the camper or RV in the middle of the day.

Your clothes are going to get smoky due to the campfire for cooking food and roasting marshmallows, making popcorn, or roasting meat under the night sky.

Examples of these clothes would be t-shirts, hoodies, jeans, shorts, athletic wear, yoga or sweat pants, etc.

The Right Underwear

Naturally, you should be wearing a bra and underwear, specifically wool underwear. The wool will help keep you cool, it dries quickly, and it allows for a range of motion.

As for your bra, a sports bra or two is the right choice. Sports bras are made for you to sweat and move in. They vary in strap types and are comfortable without being restricting.

A Hat or Sunglasses

Both of these items are good things to wear since they will help to protect your face and head.

A hat will help with the heat or rain, and if you have messy or fly-away hair, you can cover it up. The sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun’s rays and make you look cool.

Make sure to put sunscreen on so that you don’t get unwanted tan lines from your sunglasses.

A Jacket

Depending on the weather, a warmer or lighter jacket is necessary. You can wear one and pack the other. A slightly thicker parka will be perfect to wear as the sun sets and it gets colder.

You can also use it as a pillow or wear it to bed on top of your pajamas to be warmer. The lighter coat or windbreaker will help so that you don’t over-heat, by keeping the sun off your skin or protect you from the rain.

If you don’t want a jacket, then you can always bring a vest, fleece, and nylon fabrics are suitable types of jackets to wear.

A Fanny Pack or a Light Backpack

A fanny pack or a lightweight backpack is something that you need to have with you while camping. 

Having either or both items will allow you to carry your phone, your jacket, a water bottle, tissues or wet wipes, some snacks, or a camera with you wherever you go.

Because it never hurts to be over-prepared for everything while out on a hiking trail or in case of a sudden shower, you can pull out your umbrella so that you don’t have to walk in the rain.

Non-heated hair curlers – You can still style your hair in the morning with these curlers. That way, you won’t have to deal with a bad hair day while camping.

Blankets – If you want to cuddle in front of the fire or snuggle up under the stars, then you are should pack blankets. They will also help to keep you warm at night.

Sunscreen – Make sure that you bring sunscreen so that you don’t burn while outside.

Proper Activity/Weather Attire and Extra Clothes

Extra clothes are a must in your packing process. The extra clothes will be beneficial if you want to change into a different outfit, or if your current outfit gets ruined or sweaty while being outside, you have another set of clothes to change into for the day or evening.

Since you are going to be packing the extra clothes, you will also want to include the appropriate activity and weather attire.

You don’t want to be stuck on a cloudy and windy day with only short-sleeved shirts, shorts, and sandals or in the blazing sun with only warmer clothes.

It would help if you prepared for any potential weather changes or spontaneous activities.
