Yes, readers, that's right — glamping is officially a thing. We know, we know. It surprised us, too. But, then, maybe it shouldn't have. We mean, who wouldn't want to look fabulous (in a totally trail-ready, utilitarian way) while sipping cocktails and indulging in other normally indoor luxuries in the best outdoor lounge ever created — nature.
Now, as we've been told, glamping requires more than high SPF BB creams and Veuve served in trail mugs. Apparently, it takes a special kind of wardrobe as well — one that combines elegant, chic elements with a workwear vibe. Lovely, right?
Well, today, the two bloggers who've been facing off in our CityStyle Challenge picked up this particular outdoor aesthetic and ran with it. Using the same A|X Armani Exchange Utility Vest, L.A.'s Andy Heart blogger, Ann Kim, and the Miami beauty behind Around in Style, Martha Graeff, are showing us how to take a little bit of SoCal and South Beach style into the great outdoors. Of course, since this is a coast-to-coast face-off between fashion queens, we need you to weigh in on which ensemble is your personal winner. Oh, and for more chic looks, hit A|X Armani Exchange's axdressedfor.com, and tag Instagram shots of your getup with #DressedFor.
