peach blouse: smooth peach poly-cotton with elasticized neck and cuffs.  
  • There is a variation of this blouse with an elasticized waist.

blue skirt: slightly stretchy cotton/poly mix. Velcro closure in back, very full circle skirt.

shawl: white fringed white material with blue, peach and pink floral design. 
tights: Pale peach lace tights.
straw hat with ribbon: Rather generic looking straw hat with a shiny baby blue ribbon, has plain white elastic sewn to it to hold it on head.
  • My H22 fashion's hat ribbon is a slightly different shade and the weave is a bit thicker and lighter on the hat.  See a photo of them together.
sunglasses: blue
  • My H22 fashion's sunglasses are a different shape but roughly the same shade.  See a photo of them together.
  • 1st Edition Jem & Sophisticated Lady also came with blue glasses in different shades.  See a photo of all the blue sunglasses shades I know of to tell them apart.

sandals: Bright, vibrant turquoise, "attached" straps without L & R markings on the soles.
  • There are a few Jem outfits with similar style/colour of shoes, see a photo of them together.
  • There is also a "flush straps" version of these shoes that would have come in an H22 marked box.
Items not listed in Hasbro's box contents (not all dolls came with the same posters and inserts, this is a listing of what I got personally with my Rock Country fashion)
Rhonda Robinson's version came with a pink necklace.  I haven't heard of any other Rock Countrys coming with one.

Packaging Variants: A listing of the packaging that Rock Country can be found in, that I know of, so far!
Bold listings are those I have used to create this ID page.  Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists.  If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

# Rock Country in the 1986 German Leaflet (same photo appears in the 1986 Belgium catalogue): Shows a different pattern on the shawl, and the fringes look more like the ends of the fabric were cut to resemble fringes.  The skirt is is pleated.  The tights are white.  The shoes are straight edged aqua shoes (like Jerrica's) and there is an orange ribbon on the hat which appears smaller than the produced one. The sunglasses are not shown.
