10 Essentials to Get the New Western Look
One of our favorite trends for fall has to be the new take on the tried-and-true western look. We saw it everywhere on the runway during the fall shows—most notably Raf Simons' amazing take at Calvin Klein. We may or may not have instantly run out to buy a pair of square boots after seeing his collection, and now that it's seasonally appropriate, we're more excited than ever to try the look.
The trick to making it work is to nod to the trend subtly by pairing a piece with your modern, every day wardrobe to keep the look more It girl chic rather than homely on the range.
If you need an introduction to the the new western vibe or just a refresher, we round up our 10 favorite picks of the season below. Giddy up, y'all!
THE SNAP SHIRT
The vintage snap shirt blouse gets a modern reboot in a pretty print with lace trim.
THE DENIM A-LINE SKIRT
A denim skirt with oversized pockets and longer hem looks great with knee high boots for Fall.
THE MODERN COWGIRL BOOT
An update to your run-of-the-mill boot comes in this sleeker silhouette with subtle stitching and a pointed toe. Ideal with long skirts and flowy dresses.
THE PLAID PRAIRIE DRESS
To keep things more street less prairie, try pairing this dress with bold accessories like a white boot and structured bag.
THE DENIM JACKET
Nothing is more essential than a perfectly washed denim jacket. Bonus points for this bandana print collar adding a bit more pizzazz to the piece.
THE WESTERN BUCKLE BELT
Try this belt with your favorite 90's high waisted jeans and a t-shirt for a little taste of the trend.
THE CARPENTER OVERALLS
A feminine blouse with plenty of frills pairs nicely with a work wear style overall for a new outfit twist.
THE DISTRESSED ANKLE BOOT
Nothing says western like a square toe and buckled boot. Leave it to Balenciaga to make this the It girl must-have shoe for fall.
THE PIPED BLOUSE
Another easy way to test the trend, try a simple piped blouse like this that nods subtly to western flair.
THE PAISLEY PRINT BANDANA
An iconic piece that adds a little extra to any outfit (but we secretly love simply paired with a crisp white top and denim jacket).
