More and more women are taking up shooting and going out in the field. Which is great news.
We’ve scouted around for shirts cut to fit the female form, which allow you to move freely, swing the gun and look stylish all at the same time. Here are some country shirts for women that caught our eye.
Alba shirt £24.95
A lightweight shirt with a cosy, warm, brushed cotton jersey lining for cooler days. In apple and cream, or cream and berry colourways.
Country shirt in navy and green check £44.95
If you want something traditional with a Tattersall check then this shirt is it. Made from soft brushed cotton (so it’s warm too), it is loose fitting for a classic fit. Also available in three other colourways. Easily washed and ironed.
Erin lady shirt £44.99
Created in a flattering fit featuring an action back for ‘unrestricted movement when shooting’. You can choose from either a green or chocolate tile pattern colour.
Selja lady shirt £49.99
Want something that whispers camouflage but is a bit more sophisticated? Stalking gear experts Harkila have nailed the look with this ‘Selja’ shirt cut for women. Made from comfortable cotton with velvet detailing inside the collar and cuffs (which have a two position button fit).
Frill blouse in white £59.95
Just sometimes you want to wear something that has a bit of a ruffle going on and this blouse will definitely fulfil that desire. It’s a lovely country shirt for women because you can wear it out in the field, it’s stylish enough for dinner and it could also take a turn in the office.
Winchcombe shirt by Le Chameau £95
We female shooters want to be able to concentrate on our shooting and not feel concerned about our clothing letting us down. Wear this shirt and you won’t have to worry about gaping at the front because it comes in three different bust sizes, with buttons positioned to prevent any popping open. The shirt also comes in four different colours, is made from extra-soft brushed cotton, longer sleeves and a longer body (so you’ll stay covered when lifting your arms).
Purdey Alcantara patch Tattersall shirt £125
This jumped out at me when I saw it. Part of Purdey’s collection, it’s offered in green and purple. The contrasting Alcantara on the shoulders protects the cloth from wear and is also stain resistant, as well as being an attractive design feature.
Flying pheasant cotton shirt £79
New from Cordings this season, a traditionally cut shirt in soft cotton.
Bromford ladies shirt £44.95
In soft, easy to iron cotton, a classic-fit ladies shirt cut to a longer length. Available in lilac, as shown here as well as brown check, baby blue, white and pink.
Pack and go long sleeved travel shirt £89
A shirt with an elegant appearance which belies its essential practicality. It resists wrinkles, an odour control coating lets you wear it more than once before washing, it has a UPF 50 factor in the fabric to protect you from the sun, a hidden zip security pocket for cash, keys and ID and roll tabs to secure the sleeves. What’s not to like? Also in white.
Herlet technical shirt £89.99
New this season and treated with an insect shield to provide protection against ticks, mosquitoes and fleas. So ideal for the stalkers amongst you.
