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

Maxine Eggenberger

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.

Jessie's thick checked coat, tapered jeans, roll-neck knit and sleek leather boots make for the ideal strolling attire.

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.
