  1. Step 1

    Wear shorts or a skort

    Wear shorts or a hiking skort to show off your legs.

  2. Make sure your shorts aren't too short. Hiking with a wedgie is no fun.

  3. Step 2

    Try jeans or capri pants

    Wear boot cut jeans with a bit of spandex, or spandex capri pants in chilly weather, to show off your shape while allowing you to move freely and comfortably.

  4. Step 3

    Try a fitted tee or tank

    Wear a V-neck, fitted tee, or tank top made of athletic fabric with spandex to hug your curves while keeping you dry.

  5. Step 4

    Layer a pullover and jacket

    Layer on a lightweight, fitted, quarter-zip pullover. It will look stylish and protect you from wind and cold. Top it with a thin, hip-length rain jacket.

  6. Step 5

    Get cute shoes

    Get cute athletic shoes especially made for hiking. They look like running shoes but have all you need for more rugged terrain.

  7. Step 6

    Add socks

    Look for low-profile hiking socks. They won't add bulk and are more comfortable that your everyday footies.

  8. Hiking can burn up to 400 calories an hour -- almost as much as jogging.
