In the Lowcountry, summer days call for outdoor adventures, and the fashion scene reflects this trend. Nowadays people crave spending more time outside, which requires clothing that’s not only stylish but also functional. The good news is that you can look great while enjoying the great outdoors, and style and function needn’t be mutually exclusive. We’ve scoured local stores and boutiques to bring you the best looks that will take you from lunch with friends to a hike in the woods. Whether you’re exploring the great outdoors or just taking a leisurely walk, these outfits will help you make the most of your summer. Special thanks to the iconic Lawton Stables for providing us with the perfect backdrop and models to showcase these fabulous looks.
