Country Kid

Words by Matt Huxley

Having recently gained a few kilos (#treatyoself), I’m all about that comfortable clothing life right now. But rather than descend to the public indecency of ugg boots, I choose to be comfortable in a more fashionable way.

Plaid and checks are really having a big moment right now. The 90s are in and the country look of ripped stonewash jeans and a red and black check is everywhere. So I’ve been adopting this look quite a bit recently. It’s literally gotten the point where I have to consciously think if I’ve worn this look to see someone before.

I picked up this combo at the Surfer’s Paradise Cotton On launch event and they’ve really filled a gap in my wardrobe I think. This shirt is super comfy and oversized, plus it doesn’t look at all bulky tied at the waist. And these slim fit ripped jeans will last me for ages and always look good. Although I’m not gonna lie, there’s been a few *bigtoethroughtheslashes* occasions which has been a traumatising experience. The sheer panic of hearing fabric rip on you can never be unheard.

This look was shot by the gorgeous Lorraine Hanson, follow her on Instagram @lorihph.
