Ever wanted to know how to put a new look together?
You've come to the right place....
Welcome to Style Britannia,
where you'll get to see exactly how
to dress to perfection in
English Modern Country Style.
Today we're breaking down aspects of
Kate Middleton's casual style,
English Modern Country to a tee....
traditional country basics given a gorgeous modern twist.
I've gathered together images with a common theme to help us establish how to make this style our own.
First up, is a classic
Modern Country example:
skinny jeans tucked into boots.
What makes this Modern Country?
The look has its roots in jodhpurs and riding boots - traditional country - but has been perfectly updated by switching to denim and low heels.
That's the beginnings of
Modern Country Style, see?
When I look at inspiration pictures - interiors or fashion - as well as admiring, what I want to know is
'How Can I Do That Myself?'
Not as a straightforward copy - that never works for me - but in ascertaining exactly what it is that I love, and drawing together a whole new delicious Modern Country look.
This is one of my best looks in the world.
Skinny jeans and boots are
a must-have staple.
One of those looks that's hard to do badly.
Do you agree?
But, while skinny jeans and boots are a fabulous start, it needs something extra, right?
Come back tomorrow to find out what's missing.....
