As the dark nights and deary weather are drawing near, all we want to do is stay warm. As fashion month featuring London, Milan, Paris and New Yorks fashion week has came to a close it leaves us with a mountain of new trends.
YEEEHAAA,The wild wild west is back! One of the top trends for this winter is the western style. Do not panic.. I’m sure soon as you read the word ‘western’ cowboys and Indians came straight into your mind. Luckily, this season, Western trends are shaping up to be more city-friendly than ever.Designers have mixed the traditional western era packed with suede, fringing,denim, ponchos and bold prints with contemporary styles.
I have set out 5 ways to pull of the western style to challenge your inner cowgirl without looking like your on your way to a fancy dress party!
Wearing a fringed item is a perfect way to add this quirky cowboy trend into your wardrobe without being too in your face. This use of the fringing transforms the traditional clothing pieces such as a biker jacket into a eye-catching stylish jacket. It amazing how just adding fringing creates such an impact on an outfit instantly adding an edgy style.
2. Get your boots on Cowgirl!
As its winter, boots have always been an essential throughout the bitter months. Moving on from the Chelsea boot trend of winter 2014 now western boots are the in thing! The curled up style and chunky heel paired up with tassels, suede and leather create a fiery but subtle western touch to your outfit.
3. Traditional Flannel Shirt
We all have a flannel shirt in the back of our wardrobes. This timeless piece is now back in its limelight. Its time to dig it out! The checked print brightens up dull winter colour schemes bringing colour into your outfits. As the checked print is traditionally on shirts, on catwalks at all fashion weeks the print has been spotted on dresses. This creates more of a feminine touch to the rather manly styled checked shirt.
4. Rodeo Rustic Coloured Suede
Rustic colours such as mustard, tan and rust, have been popular throughout 2015. The rustic colour trend continues into the winter months.Rustic colours all complement this western trend, now paired up with suede they give a luxe vibe to any rodeo-inspired look.
Any cowgirl isn’t complete without their poncho. This piece is ideal for the winter months to keep cosy warm while being stylish (which we all struggle to achieve!). This winter, scrap you big coats and thick jumpers which make you look bulky. Try this stylish lighter winter look. No more looking like you’ve gained an extra stone during winter, now just thinly layer up with this poncho.
