How to do Country Chic… Shopcade Style! | Photo Credit: Tumblr

Whether you’re actually heading to the country for the weekend or just want to give embrace this season’s ‘prairie girl’ look, then sit up and pay attention, because this post is all about How To Do Country Chic in style!

Get Skirted

The maxi skirt is essential to working this look correctly- in winter its all about heavy tweed and luxurious colours, but in summer the colour palette completely shifts to nudes, whites and pastels.

Work the cool crochet style into your look as well, or go for light checks if you want to liven up your lower half this season- simply team with some boho fringing on top and you’re good to go.

Shirts & Jumpers

For shirts and jumpers it’s all about keeping it simple. You’ve gone for checks on your lower half which means plain is where you need to be up top. That said, if you’re going to pair your shirt with a jumper there’s nothing to stop you having a patterned one if you just have the collar on show.

Ideally, you want to go for a colour that contrasts against your jumper, which should always be a cable knit for this look. A lighter jumper will give a great contrast against your skirt, but going dark and dark can create an elegant top to bottom look.

Country Jackets

A waxed jacket is an essential come rain or shine and lets face it, they look amazing at festivals (hello Glasto) when teamed with muddy wellies!

Try to avoid quilted jackets for the summer, as these look better in winter- plus they are now so mainstream, it’s not really just for those country getaways anymore!

Boots

The finishing touch to country chic is always the boots. Whether you go for wellies (just swap out the skirt for tight trousers or even denims for a dressed down country style) or a more traditional pair of riding boots, be sure to grab something comfortable to complete this great look. Still need some inspo? Look to celebs like Birdy to see how to work the country look in style.
