I believe it is part of wedding costume. It is not everyday dress.

Here it was opposite, larger towns were often Germanised or Magyarized and countryside was where this culture thrived. Basically every valley had its own pattern of dress which was different from their neighbours. Nowadays its considered here important part of national heritage.

Also Great Britain was among first countries to be industrialised. That was probably factor which changed face of your countryside decisively. I wonder how was it before, say in 17-18th centuries. May be you had such countryside culture as well, it just got lost.

Some photographs of 19th Century peasant costumes, showing the quality of the workmanship; I think these are Hungarian, but someone may know better - I have lost the tags.

Costumes from the island of Fhr of the West coast of Germany, rather severe by the standards of German folk costumes, but none the worse for that:
