Wear a maxi dress to a bridal shower. Wear a t-shirt dress to brunch with your friends. Wear a mini dress or a wrap dress for a night out on the town. But when it comes to marrying city style and activewear, wear a dress or skirt from The North Face.
Women's dresses for active lifestyles
While a pleated v-neck or halter jumpsuit may look good on paper, they can make it hard to move if you lead an active life. Leave the midi dress and cocktail dresses for fancy events. On a hike, wear our durable dresses, skirts, and skorts for the trail. Don't be afraid to tug on your hiking shoes and go for as long as you like. Comfortable necklines let you breathe on the go. Our summer dresses and skirts are cool enough for trail blazers to wear even in sweltering heat. Just remember to bring a water bottle! Concerned about chafing in your short dress or skirt? Grab a pair of women's shorts to wear underneath for comfortable accessibility to the trails.
Keeping fashion movement-ready
You don't need a floral print or ruffles to catch eyes on the streets or the trails. Replace the puff sleeve flare dress with our smooth-line dress that works on the go. You can run, jump, and play with ease. If you're looking for a skirt or skort, make sure you grab a sleeveless tank top or crewneck long sleeve and short sleeve t-shirt to go with it. Even a button front trail shirt will make for the perfect companion on the move. Our neutral colors and clean designs match any of our other trail-ready clothing.
Women's dresses and skirts that stand up to all-day wear
On a special occasion, a little black dress, polka dot romper, or ruched party dress may come to mind. But as stunning as a strapless bodycon dress might look on the dance floor, you need something hardier for the trail. Our short-sleeve dress holds up to hours on the trail, as do our skirts and skorts, paired with any sleeve length top. The drawstring waist lets you get comfortable on the go. Pull a skirt on over a swimsuit as a coverup: no need to worry about it getting wet! Climb hilly trails and over obstacles on the way without fear. Plus, we take sundresses to a whole new level. Our favorite casual dress and several of our skirt options are sun protective clothing, offering an extra layer of protection from UV rays.
