Discover the latest trends in casual country style this season…
1 Turn heads in a trilby
The season’s must-have headwear transforms every outfit into an elegant ensemble. Go for a bespoke design in finest fur felt, hand-trimmed with colourful pheasant feathers for a contemporary spin on a country classic.
Bespoke trilby, £275, Really Wild Clothing Co.
2 Opt for a jolly jacket
This seafarer-style jacket epitomises the season’s maritime trend. Inspired by traditional fisherman’s coats, it’s waterproof, windproof and comes in a happy shade of sunshine yellow – stylish and practical, too!
Long Seafolly Jacket, £110, Seasalt.
3 Feel feminine
Forget typical sailor stripes, shades of crisp white and navy blue feature on floral patterns this season for a feminine take on the ever-popular nautical trend. Achieve the look by pairing a pretty ditsy print blouse with soft denim jeans.
Bloom print top, £45, skinny jeans in Optic White, £65, both Crew Clothing Company.
4 Delight in denim
If you buy just one piece this season, make it a classic denim jacket. Versatile, lightweight and on trend, it’s the perfect cover up for spring – just as easily teamed with a chic party dress as with this casual long-sleeve t-shirt and dark jeans combo.
Everclear denim jacket, £55; Tilda jersey tee, £37.50; Jade jegging jean, £39.95, all White Stuff.
5 Fall for florals
Beat spring showers with this floral mac and umbrella. ‘Cottage gardens inspired the new collection,’ says Elisabeth Lester, Brand Historian, Cath Kidston. ‘Small meadow blossoms alongside bold blooms give a modern twist on country style’.
Hydrangea Bloomsbury umbrella, £35; Herbaceous Ditsy cag in a bag, £30, both Cath Kidston.
