Winter is a beautiful time of year. It’s all about cuddling up in front of the fire with your loved ones, sipping on hot chocolate, and building snowmen. Right? Well, kind of. Winter is a time for sweet treats and fireside hang-outs, but if you live on a farm then it also means trekking through snow, hacking away at ice, and scrubbing slushy mud off your boots. Dressing in a way that’s stylish, weather-appropriate, and practical for your day-to-day life can be tricky as a farmgirl. Luckily, this guide has got you covered.
Fleece-lined leggings are a lifesaver. They’re super warm and let you move freely, but they’re also stylish and easy to layer. Pair them with a warm coat and boots for work on the farm and dress them up with a cute top for time off.
When you don’t want to get out of your pajamas but there’s work to be done, hoodies are the perfect solution. There are so many available that you can always find a design to suit you…or go with the easy option and steal oversized hoodies from your brother, boyfriend, or husband!
Try to find a sturdy fur-lined boot that’s waterproof, well-insulated, and durable for work on the farm. Avoid fabrics like suede and look for something hardier that’s perfect for mucking out barns and trekking through muddy fields.
Knitted hats are super cute and highly practical. After all, you don’t want to get a cold when you’re out repairing potholes or moving cattle in the harsh weather. If you won’t be working with dangerous machinery, you can even go for one with a fun bobble!
Plaid shirts have thankfully become fashionable again in the last few years, so this farmgirl’s favorite is back on the menu for work and play. Layer up with a thermal tee and coat for outdoor work and dress up with skinny jeans and heeled boots for time off.
It goes without saying that you’ll need a good winter coat. Oversized jackets are in style at the moment, so if you play your cards right, you can find something that’s practical and fashionable. Make sure that it’s waterproof, hardy enough to survive mud and barbed wire, and full of pockets.
Don’t freak out about how to dress for winter – with this handy guide you’ll have all your winter essentials covered without ending up with a bunch of impractical items you’ll never wear.
