How to dress in the country: Coolest feeds for rural chic by Bella Hoskyns.

Have you got what it takes to look cool in the country? Living in the sticks needn’t mean renouncing all sense of style. We asked for advice from Bella Hoskyns, who set up her eponymous clothing line that creates rustic yet edgy feminine clothing. ‘The brand was created from a deep affection for the countryside, a love of fashion, an appreciation of all things vintage and a desire to create cool country clothing with effortless style,’ says Bella. ‘Instagram is an essential forum for getting a new brand out there but also a brilliant way to appreciate so many talented people and to be inspired in so many different ways.’ Here she shares five feeds to boost your country style credentials.

I've always loved this brand for its calm, cool style, vintage inspired fashion and gorgeous rustic interiors. It epitomises being British to me and I share their same philosophy to create beautiful but practical things for everyday living.

Now that I live in Northumberland this is my street fix. Gorgeous Vintage clothing being tried on by punters on Portobello Road, what more do you want? Not only is it inspiring but you really get that feeling of joy from a good vintage trawl and the good news is you can buy things over an email!

This is a cool men’s clothing brand and I remember first seeing this on @greyfoxblog when he was wearing their olive Sherpa jacket. They have a modern twist on tweed and great understated coats and utility styles.

This is my 'go-to' feed for a dreamy dose of lifestyle aspiration. It has beautiful interiors, architecture, stunning fashion and a dose of fame and fortune. Every photo goes on my wish list.

Amanda is a journalist, ex-Vogue and now at Conde Nast Traveller. I love everything about her posts as her life seems rustic but very real in a beautiful way. I also love that she has a pet sheep!

Stella Tennant and Isabella Cawdor's collaboration with Holland and Holland has a great vibe. Modern meets heritage meets relaxed cool.
