The key to enjoying a leisurely day in the English countryside is to cover all bases. Chino shorts are perfect for pootling around, pair with ankle wellies and a cool crewneck jumper to keep breezes at bay. Don’t forget an oversized Parker for those summer showers and because the sun will come out, finish with chic Wayfairer sunglasses.
