Ziplining through the forest canopy, trekking through verdant rainforests, spotting hornbills in Borneo: all these are amazing, adrenaline-filled adventures, but let’s face it, they’re also… messy. How does one look good while exploring the great outdoors?
You’d be surprised at what you can pull off with a little planning! Here are some style survival tips for those aiming to go trekking, ziplining or spelunking in wild tropical rainforests – which are beautiful, but also located in hot and humid climates.
It gets hot when you’re wandering around in a tropical (or sub-tropical, for that matter) rainforest, and let’s face it, you’ll be perspiring a fair bit. A moisture-wicking top keeps you cool and helps stave off heat fatigue, while long running tights pants will protect you from pesky creepy-crawlies like leeches and mosquitoes while keeping you cool.
Bring a swimsuit and a sarong, because the chances are high you’ll have to cross a river or a waterfall – or both – at some point during your rainforest trek. Here are some suggestions to keep you looking and feeling fabulous on your adventures!
