In the country, your outfit only expresses a hint of who you are. Country girls are multidimensional people, they might go to tea parties and church but also hunt boar and frequent the dirt track. Having an array of events on your itinerary means you have to be flexible in clothing options.
Women in large cities are tied to a certain lifestyle, that apparently calls for heels and high fashion-all the time. (Personally, Ive never understood that. How do you run from a mugger in heels?) While women in the South appreciate fashion and designer clothes they tend to stick to more classic versatile styles. A swan around the waist or a plastic machine gun on the shoulder doesn’t exactly make the boys swoon. It’s too much work and psychological turmoil to wear clothes that must be ‘interpreted’. Fashion icons are women with style that never fades. People will always appreciate ladies like Audrey Hepburn, Jacki O, and Sophia Loren.
What is classic country style? It all depends on your personality. Sometimes it’s romantic florals, seersucker or lace. Other times it’s the perfect pair of jeans and a concert Tee. Mostly, it’s finding outfits that are beautiful and functional at the same time.
Below, we’ve featured outfits that can be worn for both casual and dressy occasions.
