Throughout the past decade the wild western trend has cycled through the seasons, always bringing fresh attributions to the current fashion scene it pops up in. The southwestern culture of the U.S. has alway been a source of inspiration for creatives and it’s no question why. The vibrant desert sunsets and rich artisan history have always prevailed as a place that designers pull from. Characteristics embodied by outlaws, bandits, and others from that rugged time are still much replicated. When stepping out in a genuine leather cowboy boot it’s hard not to exude just a little more confidence.
With so many fast fashion companies jumping on the bandwagon, there are so many options to style a western wear . This winter you can expect to see an abundance of suede jackets, fringed shirts, and cowboy boots galore. Her are some ways to pull off the lawless look to compliment your own personal style.
DENIM, DENIM, AND MORE DENIM
The construction of denim is by far one of the most durable and versatile. It can be lightweight or heavy depending on your liking with just a small addition to another textile like tencel. This fall so far has given us a large selection of jean styles to pick from. One favorite is the two-toned, somewhat distressed look. A looser fit trouser is definitely the direction this season. Denim shirts and dresses with western embroideries are also top picks within the denim category.
A suede jacket is nothing new but is consistently loved over and over. The soft feel is slightly more comfortable and approachable than a sleek leather moto jacket. Many suede jackets have fringe details and brass zippers.
When imagining your favorite western movie, it’s impossible not to envision a wide brimmed hat to complete the cowboy’s outfit. Hats are fun accessories and can amplify any outfit. Lack of Color is a great brand to find a fit.
Sweater weather is definitely real, and the prints and hues on trend this fall lean towards tribal and navajo. From cardigans to oversized sweater, adding a print or pattern can make it the statement piece to your overall outfit.
VINTAGE WESTERN SHIRT
Be sure to venture into your local thrift store to find some great vintage pieces like a western shirt. It may have been gaudy or ridiculous a year ago but a fun shirt is all the rave right now. Add a bolo necklace and embrace the outlaw within you.
The double buckle leather belt craze has not left the scene since Coachella, and we hope it never does. Pairing a black studded belt with jeans and a basic bodysuit is ultimate fashion goals. There are so many style to choose from by the celeb-loved brand B-Low the Belt, but Missguided and Express offer an assortment of similar western belts for a more affordable price.
When scrolling through your IG feed you may have noticed how much influencers are loving cowboy boots. They took the bonafide boot off the ranch and brought it to the city. The best thing is they can be complimented by a dress to jeans.
