Everyone has a different idea of the perfect vacation, and for some that's an escape to the mountains. From hiking to fly fishing and rock climbing, outdoorsy types are well-equipped with the best gear and functional performance wear, but when it comes to those extra outfits you need for activities like hanging at a cabin, relaxing fireside, aprés hot spring, and dinners alfresco, low-key, cute outfits are essential.
If you don't exactly consider yourself an outdoorswoman and identify more as a fashion-girl out of water - mountain resorts and spas are a totally acceptable way to connect with mother nature, BTW - formulating outfits that combine trendy pieces with technical wear is a fun way to embrace a fresh-air escape. With "ugly" fashion trending, from Birkenstocks and Tevas to the gorpcore aesthetic (which is a style of dressing that combines outdoorsy and fashion pieces into a granola-chic look), it's a fun and comfortable way to look cute during a mountain retreat if an eight-mile hike at 10,000-plus feet isn't quite your thing.
From cute shorts outfits to loungewear looks and easy denim combos, ahead, five stylish outfits to wear on your next mountain vacation, including affordable pieces like this crazy-soft tank top from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's.
