These 6 Outfits Prove Countryside Outfits Are Just as Chic as City Outfits

Escaping to the countryside has always made for an idyllic wintry day out but never before has it been so fashionable. Right now, influencers have traded in architectural cityscapes in favour of greater pastures—think fields of green, tree-lined back roads and grand country houses.

In turn, when it comes to dressing for a country jaunt, these influencers have upped the sartorial ante tenfold. Where a pair of old wellies and a hand-me-down waxed jacket would have previously sufficed, now there are a plethora of other rural-appropriate ensembles one can wear.

Generally speaking, hiking boots prove to be their footwear of choice, while thick-weaved checks are also a regular feature. Throw in some midi hemlines, heavy denim overalls and toasty knitwear, and you've got yourself the perfect pastoral capsule.

Keep scrolling to see six countryside outfit ideas from Instagram's finest, and then shop all the pieces you need to re-create them for your next road trip. Just remember to pack a thermos of hot chocolate for warmth.

If denim isn't your thing, a pair of corduroy trousers will provide the same level of heat as jeans. Just add a chunky knit and closed-toe shoes.

Skirts might not be the most obvious country attire, but with lace-up boots and a chunky longline cardigan, it makes for a pretty and (almost) practical option.

If you haven't already invested in a shacket this autumn, a trip to the countryside presents the perfect opportunity to do so. Flannel fabrics are incredibly toasty—just throw them on over a floaty dress and finish with hiking boots for an on-trend look. 

TRENCH COAT + DENIM DUNGAREES

Trench coats are commonplace in the city, but the classic silhouette also loans itself to villagewear. Wear with a pie-crust collar blouse and denim overalls for a cutesy take. 

KNITTED DRESS + WOOL BERET

Knitwear needn't be relegated to jumpers and cardigans—dresses and skirt co-ords also have also been given the woollen treatment. Complete your outfit with a beret and wipe-clean patent boots.
