Our Queen turned 95 this year, making her the oldest monarch in British history, not to mention the most fashionable.
Though times have changed, country fashion has stayed the same. In this article, we've put together a few of our favourite country looks inspired by the Royal Family over the past 50 years.
It is no secret that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the nation's favourites. Though our queen is a true style icon, the couple have brought a fresh modern lease of life to the family name.
Kate Middleton has become one of the UK's biggest style inspirations. Women from all around the world wait patiently to see what the Duchess will step out of Buckingham Palace wearing next.
Though we like to see Kate in royal attire, the Duchess also has a sophisticated casual wardrobe which we love to take inspiration from!
The reimagined best-selling Windermere from Ariat, in a beautiful country brown, is the perfect addition to any lady's wardrobe. The classic style features a suede upper, whilst the rest of the boot is a soft full-grain leather, which we have to mention is 100% waterproof.
A classic country style tweed waistcoat from Bronte that can be dressed up or dressed down for when you are out shooting or at the local country pub. It's a unisex product, so we would recommend sizing down or measuring your chest accurately and comparing it to our size chart.
The Musto Oxford is an elegant, crisp, button-down collared shirt. We have been inspired to add this to the look as we think Kate pulls this country style off great! The shirt features the famous Musto logo and is made out of 100% pure cotton.
Game shooting is part of Royal Family tradition, with the famous Boxing Day pheasant shoot at Sandringham an annual staple of the festive season.
Prince Harry and Prince William have both joined their father, Prince Charles, many times whilst hunting, in which case all would be head to toe in traditional English tweed.
Here's how we've taken inspiration from their shooting style.
This excellent jacket is a useful investment for any country gentleman. With a two-button front closure, double back vents, a ticket pocket, an internal pocket, and a striking wine satin lining, this suit is superbly tailored. It could be layered up with knitwear or a classic tattersall shirt.
This is a very traditional style of shooting tweed with a high degree of modern technical weatherproofing built in. The Kinloch is waterproof, windproof, and breathable, with a quilted moisture satin lining, making it ideal for all-day outdoor activity. Also worth mentioning that it is 100% pure lambs wool tweed.
The matching Flat Cap to the Kinloch Tweed Shooting Jacket is the perfect finishing touch to any country man's attire. It's a fresh, stylish modern tweed, blending soft country greens with a subtle golden check, not to mention it's waterproof and breathable!
Where some of us like to switch up our winter coat every year, Her Majesty, has actually had the same wax jacket for over 25 years. The Queen has been seen wearing hers while walking the dog, attending horse shows and even just walking round Windsor Castle.
The Wax Jacket has become one of the most iconic country fashion pieces, and continues to be one of our best-selling jackets, and for good reason. Like the Queen, we have customers who have had the same jacket since they started farming and still don't wish to part with it.
It's hard to believe the Bronte wax jacket prices are so reasonable at £44.95. A classic style that is proven to be hardwearing and robust. suitable for farming, hunting, or country strolls. This particular product is unisex, so again, we would recommend checking our size guide before ordering this hidden gem!
Like the Queen does, you can also have this jacket re-waxed quite easily using our Professional Wax cotton dressing.
Prince Charles is known for his prestige suiting or military uniform. However, we do occasionally see him in his casual wear, more so when he was younger. Charles spent most of his time at Highgrove House, especially within the estate gardens. Though we've taken inspiration from over 30 years ago, Charles's style is still very much a traditional country gentleman look.
If you don't already have an impressive collection of tattersall shirts, then we suggest you start with this one! The tattersall shirt will always be a key piece in a countryman's wardrobe. The Inverness is the latest version of the Hoggs' take on the classic style, with a reputation for offering high quality at a very reasonable price. The general fit tends to be on the large side; the body is not shaped and the cut is not slim-fit.
It is perfect for shooters and those in search of a traditional country look. They can be worn tucked into your wellingtons or with a pair of the HJ Hall Hatfield Shooting socks and boots. Charles wears his breeks with a pullover sweater, but they also look great with a Tweed shooting jacket.
Perfect for the great British countryside in and outdoors, it looks great worn over a traditional tattersall shirt. It has the classic suede shoulders and elbow patches. It is also made from 70% lamb's wool.
While Kate Middleton's polished style always impresses us, we love it when Prince William goes the extra mile to coordinate. Like peas in a pod, the couple somehow make matching look cool. The pair were seen at the beach wearing practical yet stylish country jackets.
Here's how we found the perfect coordinating coats for you and your other half!
The stunning Fernley coats won't let bad weather spoil your outdoor activities. Both coats are quilted with a traditional Alan Paine dog and duck feature lining, and though they have great insulation, they still feel lightweight. Between the outer and the lining is a high-spec, fully tested waterproof breathable membrane which prevents wind and water penetration. The perfect coat to transition from winter to spring, and why not do it in sync with your partner in crime
As a UK-based country clothing retailer, the Royals have inspired our family business from the beginning. We hope you've enjoyed jumping back in time with our favourite royal family as much as we have!
We also wish Queen Elizabeth II a speedy recovery.
