Choosing The Right Country Clothing-winfast

Fashion-Style For many, a country weekend break is an ideal way to relax from the stresses and strains of urban life. Whether you are venturing onto the field for shooting; attempting a spot of fishing;going hunting or horse riding; hiking or mountain bike riding-wearing the appropriate clothing is vital. Country clothing once had a stereotypical image as tweed and waxed jackets, worn by the upper classes brandishing a rifle in one hand and a pheasant in the other, with a fleet of Labradors running across the field. However, this is not the modern image of country clothing today. Equestrianism has raised the profile of country clothing with gilets and jodhpurs be.ing .monplace in high street stores. Celebrities and sporting figures such as Zara Phillips, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Guy Ritchie are often seen donning the tweed or wearing other countryside attire .bined with urban chic accessories. Countryside fashion is also be.ing popular within the home, with homeware designers such as Cath Kidston using vintage prints and countryside motifs in her designs. As well as being en vogue, countryside fashion is practical and durable. It can happily be worn for a walk over the moors then not look out of place in a pub for post-walk sustenance. No matter which countryside pursuit you are into, there is a range of suitable clothing to suit your need, from fine cut breeches for riders to field caps for those who enjoy shooting or walking. Perhaps the most influential development in country clothing is the introduction of polar fleece. As well as being incredibly .fortable, lightweight, tough and easy to care for, .pared to furs or waxed coats, fleece is also enormously warm. .bined with all these benefits, fleece can be made out of recycled bottles for the eco conscious amongst us. Whilst not being as in fashion as tweed, fleece is a much more inexpensive way to keep warm whilst looking stylish, .ing in a range of hats, scarves and jackets – a popular version being Regatta fleece jackets . Wind and rain is rife in both urban and rural areas so if you are wanting to brave the British weather, a shooting or leather jacket can be practical and if you team it with the right accessories, you can look like you are wearing off the peg designer classics. To achieve this look, layering is the key. For the men, team oxford or tattersall shirts with cord or moleskin trousers, a flat cap, brown leather shoes for the city or walking boots for the country. Meanwhile, ladies look stylish wearing undershirts and gilets with chunky beads, skinny jeans and the appropriate footwear. Country clothing is so versatile that it can be worn by any age, shape or size – it .es in a wide variety of colours and styles, being practical for wind, rain, snow, ice and heat. Most country attire is made from luxurious and .fortable materials such as fleece, wool, leather, cotton and tweed. It doesn’t matter whether you choose a city/country blend or opt for country sporting chic, country clothing is both fashionable and useful – so you can look good whilst keeping the elements out.
