Hold on to your horses, everyone! There is a new fall trend in town, and I couldn’t be more ready! Western wear is back and influencing everything from boots to yoked shirts and white lace. For the first time in a long time, the cowgirl look (fringe and all) looks equally as good in the rodeo as it does on Rodeo (Drive, that is).
Now to some, I’m sure this trend may feel a bit daunting. It’s one of those tricky ones that requires all of the gusto of a truly stylish woman while also maintaining some restraint. For instance, I love a yoked shirt with a touch of floral embroidery, similar to what we saw all over Isabel Marant’s runway.
But, when you are going with such a literal interpretation of the trend, I think the key is to keep your color palette and fabric a bit more subdued and neutral. Stay away from shiny satins and bold colors… go for a more realistic version.
I’m also a big fan of the plaid flannel shirt. The trick with this one is to keep it looking chic and not lumber jack-esque. Try pairing it with dark skinny jeans and a great pair of fringe boots.
For those looking for a more feminine version of this trend, I’ve got you covered. One of my personal favorite ways to wear this look is with a ruffled mini dress and great fringe boots. For those who aren’t as comfortable in a mini, try a longer prairie skirt or dress with a suede ankle bootie that has a lower stacked heel.
I’m also loving a lot of the embroidered pointy toe pumps that I’m seeing. They are a great way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe with a shape that we are all familiar and comfortable with. I think these look especially chic with a cropped skinny jean or leather pants and a white lace blouse.
The great part about this trend is that there is no one way to wear it. There are options out there for every style and shape. Hopefully you’ll find as many ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe as I have this fall.
