Now that I have a vintage camping trailer, I thought it would be fun to wear some vintage camping clothes. Taking a look back on 1900s to 1950s hiking and camping clothes, I have a choice from long skirts, to knickers, to pants and even dresses. What decade would you most like to camp in?
The turn of the century saw women taking to the out-of-doors in droves. Thier need for sturdy boots was a growing industry. Abercrombie was one such company who is still around today. Thier hiking boots were over the calf high with long laces and hooks for maximum flexibility. Pair with tall socks, hiking boots remained unchanged from the 1910s to 1940s.
