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

If I say the words "countryside outfit," you'll probably think of a pair of old wellies and a hand-me-down waxed jacket, but there are a number of other rural-appropriate ensembles one can wear for leafy walks.

Generally speaking, hiking boots are the ultimate footwear of choice, while thick-weaved checks are also popular with the style set. 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 recreate them for your next countryside walk. Many, however, you might find within your own wardrobe, as these looks are centred around timeless pieces.

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 until temperatures warm up.

CABLE-KNIT CARDI + FLORAL MIDI SKIRT

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. 

FLANNEL SHACKET + MIDI DRESS

Flannel fabrics are incredibly toasty. Just throw them on over a floaty dress and finish with hiking boots for a stylish look. 

TRENCH COAT + DENIM DUNGAREES

Trench coats are commonplace in the city, but the classic silhouette also loans itself to village wear. 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.
