The traditional attire of country clothing has been worn by men and women for centuries. Historically, it was the clothing of choice when taking part in outdoor pursuits such as riding, shooting and fishing. This smart countryside style is now seen at horse races, country weddings, fairs and festivals across the UK. Fashion designers have given the fabrics a new guise, gracing catwalks for the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Erdem and Victoria Beckham.
Fabrics such as tweed and wool portray comfortable, practical and stylish leisure wear. Sharp tailoring and design details are key for this trend and modern designers utilise a combination of heavier fabrics alongside the more forgiving nature of cashmere and cotton. It creates an elegant, sophisticated and timeless look.
Here’s our top 5 countryside looks, perfect for any stylish outdoor enthusiast:
