How to take a new approach to this year Western Style
This season, welcome back your inner cowgirl. It is time to polish your boots, button up your denim shirt and cinch silver-buckled belts to your waist, because we are going for a rodeo. But not for a Rodeo Cowboy, but more for a Rodeo Drive.
The western vibe is having a big comeback. Forget everything you knew about this trend and leave aside the oversized plaid shirts. This Western trend is more sophisticated and elegant than ever.
There are many ways you can start incorporating this trend into your wardrobe. Of course, the easiest way of doing it is by adding small pieces to your outfits. Like a silver-buckled belt or a pair of cowboy boots. Invest in key pieces that will help you achieve the Western trend without having to update your whole wardrobe. Celine, Clavin Klein, and Simon Miller are some of the designers that took this trend to a next level. So, if you’re looking to invest in a western inspired piece this Autumn keep in mind these designers.
It is all about simplicity, small details more than lots of tassels or fringes. Keep things simple and you will succeed.
If you need some inspiration on how to wear the Western Trend, here are some examples that will help you achieve this trend.
Jeans are a basic of the Western Trend. You pretty much can achieve this trend without adding them to your outfit. White jeans and a denim shirt is the most basic combination that works for everything. For a day of errands or an informal dinner even for a casual date. Add a pair of suede cowboy boots and you will have the perfect western look.
Look for pieces that will help you upgrade your looks. Those are the pieces you should invest on. Like an embroidered denim jacket or a pair of snake print cowboy boots. Keep your looks simple and add one element that will be the one making your outfit pop.

Another element who has a role paper in this trend are the skirts. Midi Skirts became a hit last year, but this season they’re back and you will for sure add one into your wardrobe. If you want to take this trend to the next level, leave the jeans and wear midi skirts instead.
They will give you a more sophisticated look and the great thing is that you will be able to wear this trend to work. Elegant and sophisticated. Skirts will upgrade your Western look making you look like a real fashionista.
Also, you can incorporate some animal prints. Another big trend this season. You can wear to big trends in one outfit if you keep it simple focus all the attention in that one piece that will make your outfit perect.
Last but not least we have the dresses. This can probably be the most difficult version of this trend. But don’t worry it is achievable and will make you the queen of the Western Trend.
Long dresses are a safe, fashionable option. Plus it will keep you warm during the autumn. Short dresses with some details like this one with fringes and a bright pink color are a risky choice but if you combine it with more neutral pieces it becomes the most incredible western inspired outfit.
As usual, the key is on the details and the small things. Some fringes, a burgundy belt, a tasseled leather jacket and of course a pair of cowboy boots. Have fun with the colors. If you feel like your look is very simple, add a bright color bag or a belt even a bright color pair of boots if you’re more of a riskier person.
