Whether you live in the country or the big city, it’s hard to deny the charm of a trip to the farmers market: fresh produce, local handicrafts, and a chance to actually connect with your neighbors. And when you’ve gotten dressed in one of these adorable outfits to wear to the farmers market, you’ll be just as charming as the event itself.
Marvelous Maxi Skirts
Farmers market season starts in the spring, which can be a tricky fashion time to navigate. The weather is starting to warm up, but things can still be a little breezy. Maxi skirts are a little longer than dresses, giving you a little more protection from the elements. But they’re still flowy and fun and the perfect way to herald the start of warm weather.
Even if you go to the market early in the day, you’re still walking along in direct sunlight. And if you’re going to the market during the dog days of summer, things will get pretty hot. A light, breezy sundress is just the way to keep cool and cute on your summer trek to the market.
If you really want to capture summertime—and add a little retro twist to your outfit while you’re at it—a straw hat is a fun addition to this look. Of course, straw hats take a little more maintenance than some other kinds, but the effort is well worth it.
Walking the market can be more work than people appreciate sometimes. If this is your farmers market experience, fear not. Overalls are a perfectly practical look for any market, with short overalls for the summer market and long overalls for the fall. Add a colorful scarf to your hair to tie the whole look together.
Once pumpkins replace the flowers, it’s time to embrace fall farmers market fashion. And nothing captures the beauty of fall better than flannel. Here are just a few flannel farmers market outfit ideas you can try this fall:
- An oversized flannel shirt over shorts or a skirt
- Tying a flannel shirt around your waist
- A long sleeve flannel-print dress
- Add a flannel accessory like a scarf to your outfit
- Wear a flannel shirt under a sweater.
Don’t Forget About Accessories
Make sure you don’t forget about accessories to finish off your adorable farmers market outfit in the best way. You’re definitely going to need a bag of some kind to fill up with goodies, so it’s a good idea to find a more traditional, sustainable bag that you can use again and again for your produce. Something like a tote bag or a net bag is an ideal option, as they are usually made from cotton or hemp so can be easily cleaned and are eco-friendly. You can tie your whole outfit together with some accessories too, as a farmer style straw hat or some cute beaded bracelets can finish off your look in the most adorable fashion. There are so many different market-style accessories that you can source to help create the perfect outfit, so try to search for some vintage options or some handmade accessories to achieve the look that you desire.
Whether you’re off to pick up some corn on the cob, fresh-cut flowers, or an apple pie, there’s nothing quite like the farmers market. So, why not embrace the charm of the market into your style?
