Throwback Thursday: Retro Hiking Style
New York Fashion Week starts February 6th, but the Sierra Club has always had a finger on the pulse of chic. Check out these fabulous photos of outdoor fashions from Sierra Club outings from 1896 to 1946.
(Above) Have you ever hiked in bloomers? These ladies sported them during an 1896 trip to University Peak near Kings River. Part of the Peak is in Kings Canyon National Parks.
Pictured, from left to right, Helen Gompertz, Estelle Miller, and Belle Miller.
Bloomers and bandannas go together like peanut butter and jelly. The ladies paired these items during the Sierra Club High Trip to Mt. Brewer in 1902. Practical headgear was worn by all.
