Forays into the city needn’t mean that all memories of the shire must be left at the periphery of the M25. Tweed is now indisputably stylish, the countryside is fashionable and ladies can look sharp yet traditional at the same time.
The Field has compiled a sharp little selection of items that can be used together or separately for a look that works in both city and country. Tweed is very much on trend, especially now that classic styles have been updated with modern, flattering cuts. Country style for ladies in the city? Look no further.
Who doesn’t love a long tweed coat? This one from Holland Cooper is flattering to all figures, with a nipped in waist and is trimmed with faux snake skin for a bit of a twist. Team with a raccoon fur collar to complete the look. £649
A well cut white shirt and a fitted waistcoat looks good on absolutely everyone. This, from Great Scot is really rather fabulous. Wear a ruffled shirt underneath for extra impact and it will take you from a point to point to Centre Point with ease. For The Field readers only, if you enter THEFIELDSTYLE at the checkout you will get £20 off the RRP of £179
Add another dynamic to an outfit with a scarf or shawl. This cashmere shawl from Holland & Holland is somewhat extravagent, but it is just so beautiful, it has to be included. It’s huge, so if you get tired of wearing it, use it as a throw. £850
A beautiful watch finishes off any outfit, and the Grand Reverso from Jaeger Le Coultre can be worn for any activity, as the face can be neatly turned around to prevent damage. What better reason do you need to head down to the Bond Street store?
These blue suede, Spanish riding boot style numbers from Fairfax and Favor are just completely awesome. Wear out at night for a real impact. £295
This simple, elegant felt and leather bag from William & Son will look the part at any daytime occasion, rural or city. Plus, it’s big enough for all manner of essential accoutrements. £130
