Every summer, we take a single trip to Colorado, and it’s always one of the most memorable trips of the year. The fresh air, the myriad activities, and the sheer outdoorsiness of it all are excuses to embrace an entirely new look. Provided you’re not camping (or backpacking!), many of the items in your child’s closet can translate nicely to a more active lifestyle—especially in a place as prep-friendly as Colorado. The key to mastering a fuss-free ensemble that looks just as great on the mountain as it does at Ajax Tavern?  Loose-fitting layers in breathable fabrics. But some towns, especially Aspen, encourage some fashion flair. Why not Ralph it out with a cowboy hat, chambray shirt, and leather boot? Just think of the photos!—CC
