The second Fall Winter Fashion 2009 key look is the Country Folk which is a mix of romantic English Country style with feminine 70's elements.

Heres a quick summary of the main elements of Country Folk:

5 star Colors:

Orange, grey, brown, beige, off-white, olive green.

5 star Details:

Checkers print, barnyard-looking boots, lace, loose blouses, menswear fitted slacks, old English style like medallion pendants.

Now let's check out the main pieces for this look:

PS: The items showcased on this page are no longer available.

Checkered Shirt

A very hot item that keeps reappearing almost every season. If you love checkers then you might want to consider this as a fall/winter staple!

Choose between clothing types such as the dress shirt, blousy tunic, mini dress or if you're feeling frisky, try a checkered romper suit!

The most popular checkered shirt colors appropriate for this season are red, blue, purple, orange and brown.

How to Wear It:

The standard combo for this top is pairing the plaid shirt with jeans (either light or dark blue). However if you want to look less like a barnyard gal, wear it with black straight leg pants.

Have in mind that the print can widen your upper half. It's a great choice if you have a pear body shape but if you have a heavy top or wide shoulders then you might want to balance it out by adding a pair of boots, or rethink your choice.

Ripped Jeans

The ripped/destroyed jeans trends got extended from earlier this summer. Choose between the distressed/ripped or shredded/ripped style.


How to Wear It:

Keep it easy on the layers with this one or else you might end up looking like a rocker/street beggar which is not a good look. Remember that details on the legs can highlight them. If you want to slim your legs make sure the jeans have been ripped vertically.

Blousy Tunic Tops

Blousy tunic have always been a favorite among many women. But for this season focus on countryside colors such as dark brown, beige, off-white and burgundy.

How to Wear Them:

Wear it casually with jeans and top it off with a long vintage pendant necklace for a sweet and nostalgic outfit. If the blouse is slightly big around the middle, wrap a skinny belt around it for a more sleek look.

Adding a little bit of a romantic old English flair with ruffles along the hemline and/or with cute puffed sleeves.

Tan/Brown Boots

The color complements the Country Folk-look. Choose between the classic riding boot style, casual slouchy flat boots or Dr. Martens-looking leather boots with laces.

How to Wear Them:

Wear the fashion boots with denim jeans or a pair of fashion tights.

There are two ways to decide what type of boots you should buy; the shape and length of your legs. Basically, if you want to elongate your legs stick to dark brown and black boots in ankle, knee or thigh height. Mid-calf is a no-no if you have thick or short legs because it can chop your legs in two and make them look stubby.

Dress Pants Slacks

For a super cool Country Folk-look, add a pair of relaxed womens slacks in beige or black.

How to Wear It:

They look extremely good with boots and chunky knits. Make sure that the slacks are a little relaxed and loose at the crotch area. If they're too tight, it'll only defeat the whole point of the pants.

Thick Knits

The thicker the better! Go for neutral colors that go with everything such as brown, beige, off-white and gray. Choose between the standard knit turtleneck or long cardigan style, or the more feminine-looking kimono or belted look.

How to Wear Them:

It's winter and you should enjoy the comfy feel of a thick sweater. If you want to look sleek and stylish add a waist belt. And make sure that the neck of the knit doesn't drown your head or neck.
