We’re so used to receiving guidance on how to dress for excursions to the countryside. The pitfalls of getting it wrong are endless and is to some a dramatic transition. On the flip side it seems that people are left to fend for themselves when incorporating country attire in the urban environment. All said, the crossover isn’t as drastic as one might think.
Walking in parks is one of the great joys for metropolitans all over the world. If you're a city dweller whose work uniform is a three-piece pinstriped suit, visiting green areas is the prime opportunity to probe your fondness for the country aesthetic. Now, we’re not talking about the archetypal country-mouse look in town of: Hunter wellington boots, pleated tweed breeks and heavy field jackets and neither are we echoing skinny jeans, clumpy lumberjack boots and non-prescription glasses, which seem to be common in both Shoreditch and Somerset. Take the highly-functional country clothing bravado down a few notches and get creative with some forward-thinking country-meets-city outfits.
