Gardening Clothing for Women

by BrendaReeves

You may think gardening attire includes a ratty old T-shirt, cut-off jeans and rubber thongs, but think again. There's some functional gardening clothes you'll want to have.

I usually hang out in an old, faded T-shirt and sloppy shorts all summer. That's because I'm working in the garden a good part of the day. A lot of times, while I'm tending to my flowers, a thought will pop into my mind: I've got to go to the bank and make a deposit, or I need to get some tomato sauce for tonight's spaghetti. I don't want to change into more presentable clothing, because I'll go back to gardening after I run my errands. Even so, as I stand in the line at the bank and the grocery store, I'm very self-conscious about looking like a slob. Some fashion designers have solved that problem for me.

Garden Girl Gardening Capris and pants

With Built-In Knee Pads

Take a look at these capris on Amazon.  They are fashionable and functional. Somebody was really thinking when they decided to add knee pads to this pair of pants. Squating in the garden is uncomfortable, but with these pants you can rest comfortably on your knees. The knee pads are provided and slip into inside knee pockets. Look at the cute fabric they come in. I thought the blue country stripe with tiny roses, white pockets and knees was adorable, but then I looked at the beige with pink flowers, solid beige pockets and knees, and now I can't decide which pair to buy. I think I'll buy both. That way I'll have a pair to wear while the other pair is in the wash.

Look at the multiple pockets on these pants and the rings with an attachable pocket for your cell phone or anything else you want to put in it. These pants will last for years to come. If you don't believe they're the greatest, read the reviews on Amazon. Everyone gave them a five-star rating.

Insect Shield Gardening Hat

Sloggers Women's Rain and Garden Shoes
Here's another creative must-have for wearing in the garden. Now you can not only keep the sun off your head and face, but you can keep the insects away. The EPA approved the claims by Insect Shield that this hat retains its durability through 70 washings. It repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and even those pesky critters you can't see.The EPA even approves this hat to be worn by pregnant women and children of all ages. The great thing about it is it puts the repellency near your skin and not on it. The long-lasting repellency is odorless, invisible and long lasting. Maybe I'll get a hat for each of my four dogs.
Don't forget your feet. These gardening shoes are made in the USA, and they come in 13 different patterns from animal prints to polka dots to flowers. They are 100% recyclable, made with a deep lug sole--That means I can fit my Orthotics in them.--and 100% waterproof.

Thank you for the comment. I'm always in my gardening clothes and look a mess when I run errands.

Dear Brenda,
This just reminded me of how conscious I become while I go for my regular walks. Better change to a pleasing attire than get strange looks from the passers by.

Thanks for the comment Tuesday. Those capris are so cute. It's the pads that make them pricey, but I've got to have them.

All good ideas for lady gardeners. Protecting your knees is a good idea ,often it is only the next day after you have spent hours gardening, that you wish you had thought of kneeling on something with padding. The garden shoe is a good idea as wellie boots are not always comfortable and boots can be a struggle to put on and off.

Thank you, Katie. I love those capris, too. The knee pads look nice and cushiony.

This gardener needs all of the above. When you really get into your flower beds and landscape like I do you need all the support you can get, I love the gardening capris. :)K
