10 Ways To Tap Into The Western Trend

Share

WORDS BY STEPHEN YU

 

We're whisking you back to the American frontier of fashion this season. We're here to save you hours of panning for nuggets of style gold. So saddle up, here's the 10 best ways to tap into this season's Western trend.

 

The Beaded Bag

Shop the look: JESSIE WESTERN beaded fringes crossbody bag

 

Start small with a chic beaded crossbody bag in a beautiful Native American print. Great for carrying healing crystals, tobacco and herbs. Or should that be gui ling gao, ginseng and 24 herb tea.


 

Leather Belt

Shop the look: ALBERTA FERRETTI western belt

 

Cinch in your waistline with this subtle studded leather belt. Pair with indigo or stonewashed denim and a revolver holster.


 

Cowboy Boots

Shop the look: GANNI marlyn 45 leather cowboy boots

 

The cowboy boot is back in style. Wear yours with a priory dress for a touch of authentic Americana, with tailored pants or denim for a smarter rodeo look, or with sweatpants for something more fashion forward. (note: will not make you better at the bucking bronco)


 

Ankle Boots

Shop the look: GIVENCHY Western-style ankle boots
 

Or...clink into you're favourite watering hole (or saloon) in a pair of cowboy ankle boots if you don't fancy going the whole hog just yet.


 

Western Mules

Shop the look: MAISON MARGIELA western mules

 

Straddle two trends at once with this pair of cowboy mules. The deconstructed uppers on these

would go well with some cut-off denims.

 


Denim Shirt

Shop the look: SAINT LAURENT western denim shirt

 

The country-inspired trend is all about the details. Everybody needs a denim shirt in their collection. This one has chic black pearl snap buttons and features a classic Western front yoke with matching pockets.


 

Printed Scarf

Shop the look: GOLDEN GOOSE DELUXE BRAND future western scarf

 

Swap cotton bandanas for velvety smooth silk neckerchiefs for a more luxurious on-skin feel. A chic detail when worn round the neck, or alternatively around the head when on the run from the authorities (joking, you're not Thelma or Louise...I hope).


 

Printed Dress

Shop the look: ETRO nouveau western print dress

 

Go full bohemian with a beautiful printed dress. Perfect for singing Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac covers with strangers at karaoke in Wan Chai. Looks best with snakeskin boots.


 

Western Dress

Shop the look: COACH Western dress

 

Who says you can't throw a lasso around a classic wardrobe staple? This LBD gets branded with rhinestone studded collar, mother of pearl buttons and a pleated skirt.
