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.
