Brighten up with country fashion that's loud and proud

FOR an environment that consists of dirt and animals, country fashion is stylish and somewhat preppy.

While conservative and practical, it indulges in bright colours, checks, stripes and tailored shirts.

While looking good, you want it to last and items like an authentic Akubra or leather boots will set you back a few hundred dollars.

Female country style in particular is loud and proud with bold bright pinks and bejewelled belts.

When wearing a dress with boots, show some leg to break-up the look.

We've featured fashions from Limestone Clothing at Calliope, which sells country, Lorna Jane exercise wear, formal and race-day wear, and beachwear.
