Winter 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to a Countryside Estate

Being that it is the year of the horse, I thought I’d start off this month’s What to Wear birthday request with a trip to a countryside estate. Laura writes, “Hi, I’m going to a birthday party at an estate next week, it’s like a horse farm. I would love to get your help with any outfit suggestions to remain fashionable and chic. I assume the weather is going to be hot but I must take into consideration it’s the countryside. I would be very thankful of your help”.

When I think of the countryside and style, I think of whimsical silhouettes and feminine patterns. Now as I’m not entirely sure the level of formality, I’ve mustered up a few ideas that may just work for this upcoming birthday celebration.

For look #1, opt for traditional equestrian garb with a pair of suede and leather leggings, a tailored blazer, and a simple white button down.

Punch up this neutral ensemble with a pair of two-tone riding boots and a Gucci Iconic print silk scarf. To complete the look, mix in a pair of leather gloves, square-framed ombré effect sunglasses, and a mini satchel handbag.

A frilly frock in a polka dot print is a definite wardrobe option when you’re set to hit the countryside. Doll things up with a pair of Jerome C. Rousseau Floyd multi-strap sandal and a DVF envelope clutch in a mixed metallic hue.

Add a bit more drama with a Macey floppy hat, Jimmy Choo Mindy shades, and pearl earrings.

Spring is just around the corner, so pull a few of your favorite pastel pieces from the back of your closet to create a fun and flirty ensemble. Jazz up an Equipment Aries Horse Print Silk Blouse with a French Connection Feather Light Flared Skirt and a gingham print square heel pumps.

Throw on a seafoam green boyfriend cardigan and a Kotur melon clutch for an additional dash of color. Complete the look with a pair of cluster stud earrings and stylish shades.

For your final look give a Matthew Williamson printed frock a countryside feel with a black and white printed v-neck cardigan, pink suede Jimmy Choo Abel pumps, and an oversized floppy hat.
