Yama Girls have no set dress code, but there are many key characteristics to Yama Girl style. Yama girls wear primarily functional clothing in any color, though the colors tend to go beyond neutral tones.  Fabrics are worn in many prints, such as animal prints, native prints, and stripes.  Overall, brightly colored clothing is preferred.  Yama girls enjoy wearing:

  • Loose fitting shorts
  • Knit wear
  • Mountain or hiking skirts
  • Tights or leggings
  • Hats
  • Leg warmers
  • Oversized sweaters
  • Down skirt/skort

Mountain or hiking skirts are basically skorts, or a pair of shirts with a flap of fabric over the front and back to look like a skirt.  Other popular Yama Girl clothing items include skirts in bright colors or prints, down vests, fleece, and light jackets. Yama Girls wear tights or leggings under their shorts, skirts, and dresses.  This adds an extra layer to protect from the elements, as well as an extra piece of clothing just to complete the look.  This also serves the purpose of ensuring modesty.  

They wear flannel and down clothing to keep warm.  They also wear thermal clothing underneath their outerwear when hiking temperatures will be cold.

Yama Girls like their clothing to have pockets, because they have items they need to carry or items they will collect on their long hikes.
