The Country Style Guide
Staying stylish in a rural setting not only lifts your mood but also gives you a chance to invest in pieces that will not only be great for now but will also translate for the upcoming season and far beyond. Think about your purchases, spend wisely and invest in wardrobe icons.
Getting the smart/casual balance right is key, choosing pieces that layer to accommodate the unpredictable English weather not only allows for a sense of individual style but also a chance to show off a few of your new purchases all in one go. Look out for pops of colour, print and texture which will allow you to update your old faithfuls. Inject a newness for now and transition easily into city chic in the upcoming months.
Bold checks in brighter colours make a fabulous style statement, consider this as a great alternative to the more traditional greens and browns. Look for skinny jeans in buttery soft fabrics such as mole skin as well as denim. Or change up your classic shirt with a little something different, possibly a ruffle or a different colour.
Wear your clothes rather than allowing them to wear you, pick pieces that flatter your shape rather than being a slave to the trends. Feeling like the best possible version of yourself rather than purchasing something you are unsure about is key.
Don’t forget to accessorise: adding a belt, scarf, bag, hat or sunglasses will not only provide a purposeful function but also can update your look in a second. Look at different ways to buckle your belt, add a feather to your fedora or simply tie your favourite scarf to your bag.
Be ready to step back into the world with brand new footwear, whether that’s for day or evening or even a pair that works for both.
