Fashion isn’t usually top of mind for farmers. Who gets dressed up to muck out a barn or till a plot? And anyway remote rural areas aren’t typically populated by lookee-loos checking out today’s outfit. But functional farm fashion can make hard labor a bit easier, so check out some clothes, from shoes to slacks (and more), built to work as hard as you do.
Look stylish in Rank 45 women’s Marini navy southwestern print slip-on casual shoe (pictured above). The rubber outsole and pull-on tab make them comfortable and cute.
The garment of choice whether you’re working on the farm or running errands in town, the Duckworth Powder High Neck is a perfect cold-weather classic. Made of Montana-grown Merino wool, its loose fit looks fantastic over leggings or jeans.
Nothing says “cool” quite like a sheep in aviators! Made from recycled fishing nets, the mesh back is breathable with an adjustable snap back closure to keep you comfy.
The Briar Jacket is made of impressively soft, yet bramble-proof 10.5-ounce stretch cotton. Lined with microfleece, it’s available in both char- coal and field khaki.
Whether you’re working or playing, the Durango Paisley Silk Wild Rag keeps sun off your neck, dust out of your lungs and sweat from soaking your shirt. At 36-by-36 inches, this solid silk rag works in warm and cold climates alike.
The Columbia Heavenly Vest is aptly named. The perfect water-resistant outer layer, this vest uses thermal reflective technology to warm your core.
Tailored-style, Longhorn stitched pockets and a snap make the Kaycee Denim shirt transition easily from farm work to a night on the town. The cotton and polyester combo make it lightweight-yet-durable with a traditional denim feel.
Made with flexible, breathable, water-repellent fabric, Balsa Pants include articulated knees and a 50-plus UPF rating.
