As the weather (slowly) gets warmer and Spring approaches, one of the things that comes to mind is gardening. Whether you are gardening fruit and veggies or prized roses, you need to wear the right clothing. You don’t have to sacrifice fashion to be comfortable and functional in the garden! It’s time to find the perfect gardening clothes.
Here are some stylish gardening clothes options to add to your gardening wardrobe!
AN AMAZING HAT
There are two schools of thought when it comes to what type of hat is best for gardening. Some people like a baseball cap and others like a full brimmed hat, especially to protect your neck from the sun’s rays. Below are a few of each that I like:
A WHITE COTTON T SHIRT
A white cotton t-shirt is part of my mom-iform (mom uniform). Anything and everything goes with a white T – from leggings, to jeans, to a sequins mini skirt. In the case of gardening, a 100% cotton white t-shirt is great for a few reasons:
- It can be easily bleached if you get dirt on it.
- It is white, which will not attract the sun’s hot rays while you are planting.
- 100% cotton is breathable.
A SUPER CUTE APRON
Aprons are an amazing invention. They keep your clothing clean while you garden, cook, etc. You can store whatever you need in the handy pockets. They come in so many different colors and patterns. Here are some that caught my eye:
You’d think that wearing shorts would be appropriate when gardening because more than likely it’s going to be warm out. BUT that is not the case! It’s best to wear long pants that cover your legs so that you protect them from scratches and cuts that may occur when pruning, etc. Denim is very durable – here are a few pairs of jeans that I like! (Most of them already have holes, so if you add a few others while gardening, it will just look natural.)
Protect your hands fashionably with these super cute gardening gloves!
Sunscreen is a must if you are going to be outside, gardening or not. There are so many different kinds out there, but here are some of my favorites!
While researching the proper attire for gardening, I came across a few websites that recommended Hunter boots! I love Hunter boots! Here are a few of my picks, but there are so many different colors and prints to choose from! I’ve also included some shoes that are distinctly made for gardening (although they aren’t as cute).

I actually sell some garden tools on Amazon, bug haven’t thought of garden clothes yet. Thanks for sharing these! 🙂
Victor, you should totally add garden clothing to your Amazon store.

Love your ‘momiform’ comment and all about simplicity. Great suggestions for gardening!
Thank you, Kaitlyn! I am all about my momiform! Simple is best!
My grandma would’ve love this post. She was all about gardening. Since she has passed away, my grandpa has kept up her garden. I’ll share this with my Aunt, who got the gardening gene herself!
I love that your grandpa keeps up your grandma’s garden. 🙂
I’m sure your outfits are always cute and stylish! I love the hat,I needed a new one so I might add your recommandation on my list!
Thanks for sharing this wonderful list!
Awww, thank you Alice! I am so glad you like the list and hope you enjoy the hats 🙂

Gardening is such a calming task and beautifies an area if done correctly so why not look cute doing it. I love those colourful gloves.
I have heard that it is very therapeutic. I am seriously thinking of creating a raised garden because our soil here is terrible.
I am not that great when it comes to gardening but the last time I attempted any, the hat wad a lifesaver from the heat.
Mary Jingjing Mortos Lopez says
You all have the complete list here. I’m not really into gardening but I love plants lol
LOL, I love plants to Mary 🙂
Tina Hogan Grant says
I’m an avid gardener. I think I own all of the items you mentioned LOL. My favorite being the sunhat.
Tina, I am so glad my post is on-point!! What do you like to garden?
My parents are an avid gardener though I still have to try my hands on gardening , but I think I might stay away from wearing whites as I love my whites and can’t see them getting stained again and again. I might opt for other light colored fabrics.
Other light-colored fabrics would work well too, Ayushi!
Hannah Marie says
I agree with the list. I do not have a garden but I have a friends who has a farm. I always see her with the complete outfit mentioned. lol!
Suja aka Sindhuja Kumar says
On the verge of welcoming spring, this is a great post to know all stuff about gardening clothes. Thanks for sharing.
My pleasure, Suja!
I love it! I have to pick up some of these. If I can put on a cute outfit to go sweat my brains out at the gym, I can look cute digging int he dirt.
I agree, Stacie!! Why not look super cute?!
I need that chill hat for everyday life! Loving the wide brim ones too, to keep the sun away.
The chill hat is very cool, Ashley!
Jenn @ EngineerMommy says
I can’t wait til the weather warms up. Having a great apron and a white shirt are must-haves for any gardening adventure.
Nancy at Whispered Inspirations says
I need to get my mom some of those boots. She is a big gardener and she needs better ones.
Dee Jackson says
Dang!! All of these outfits are way too cute!! Loving the hats too
I adore those short Hunter boots. I haven’t seen them around here so I need to check them out online. Super cute!
Aren’t they so cute, Terri? Do you like the striped ones or the solid color ones?
Holly Hood says
I enjoyed reading your article. I love dressing for the occasion not matter what. Your selection of outfits and boots are super cute.
Victoria Heckstall says
I love gardening. I always do that at least 3x a week and I always use white shirt while taking care of my plants. It has a comfortable feeling while wearing it.
Agree, Victoria! What do you garden?
These are cute ideas! I really need to up my game. I keep trying to to weed out the old clothes now I need to sprinkle in some new ones like these!
Thank you, Mel!
Love those straw sunhats! So cute.
E H says
Such a lovely way to dress for gardening projects! I am sick and tired of wearing my worst clothing when I do gardening, this is such a nice change, love the boots, and the hats the most!
Wendy Polisi says
The hat is so necessary. Having shade on your head and neck rules!
Sunburn is so painful everywhere but especially on the neck – OUCH!
LaToyia Dennis says
Oh the way to my heart….a chill cap and a pair 7 jeans. That is just my style. Super cute.
Ally Jones says
Ah I am so saving this! I am ready to start gardening this year!
My mom loves gardening, so i’m going to share this with her! I am sure she will want a lot of these if she doesnt have them already
I do need a new pair of gloves. And those aprons are cute. Never thought of wearing one. Can’t wait for spring to arrive so I can start planting more flowers.
I can’t wait to garden as well!
Thanks for the tips. I usually just use old clothes (that I no longer wear out) when I’m gardening. A large brimmed hat is something I should probably get for better sun protection.
Great idea to wear old clothes while gardening, Tayo! I definitely recommend a large brimmed hat to protect your face and neck from the sun.
Hi Dana, you have shared nice ideas. At the time of gardening we need to think twice about our outfit. Here you suggest amazing outfits for gardening. Thank you for sharing this post with us.
