When your think of farms, you probably don't immediately correlate them with fashion or trendiness; but I am here to tell you that farmer-chic is a really, really underrated trend. This clothing style is so easy to pull off, comfortable and mostly practical while still looking super cute.
Dungarees are super versatile. I must be honest and say I'm not a huge fan of the classic blue denim versions, but I love a black/ grey denim dungaree or even a super colorful red or yellow dungaree. You can easily wear this staple piece every day of the week, all year around. You can change the T-shirt you wear underneath or just wear a cute sports bra under neath. In Winter you can wear your sweater over or under the straps. You can wear the one strap down, one up and they look great with heels or flats. It's great for if you have a long busy day ahead of you since they're roomy, comfy and you can carry the outfit from day to night by just changing up your shoes and adding some darker lipstick.
A pinafore is the dress version of dungarees. Pinafores look especially cute in dark wintery colors and interesting fabrics like velvet or corduroy. Paired with sheer black stockings, chunky black boots and a warm polo neck knit, you have the perfect winter look. In summer, a white pinafore paired with a sheer lace top underneath and some espadrille platforms would look very chic and is perfect for a day-to-day summer ootd.
Wellies have come a far way from the classic blue, red and yellow pair that you buy from your local hardware store. Nowadays, companies like Hunter create the coolest rain-proof boots that you certainly wouldn't want to wear white doing farm work. For those super chilly, rainy winter days these are perfect and will certainly add a great talking point to your outfit. The great thing about these shoes is that they're super comfortable and some of them come with fur-lined interiors, so if you live somewhere where it really gets cold, these will keep you warm all winter. They're also easy to clean making them very practical - especially with muddy puddles being a problem in the rainy season.
Gingham is a classic print associated with farmers. Found in flannels and as a well-known 'table-cloth/ picnic-blanket" print this style is really back in fashion at the moment and was all over the runways during the last major fashion week season. This is more of a summery print, and looks beautiful on a cotton sundress or a girly midi skirt.
Until next time
