Yee-haw – Wild West fashion has made a comeback! Bring out your denim shirt and that pair of cowboy boots, because we are going to help you accessorise like it’s late 1800s America – but with a modern twist!
So, you want to release your inner cowgirl? Shades of brown, black and gold will kick-start your country and western vibes. Here’s what to wear…
The Hat – Large Brim Paperstraw Hat | Wide paperstraw hats offer a contemporary take on the traditional cowboy hat. We think the gold buckle adds a delicate touch that is reminiscent of a sheriff’s badge and cowboy spurs. If you really want to nail the cowgirl vibe, don’t forget to style your hair into two plaits or loose ponytails!
The Gloves – Charlotte Hairsheep Leather Cuff Gloves | The interlinking snake print pattern across the cuff provides a subtle nod towards desert snakes. With otherwise minimalist detailing, this versatile glove can be teamed up with many other outfits!
The Handbag – Lucia Shoulder Bag | Mixing the flawless combination of black, white and gold together, the Lucia shoulder bag matches each of our recommended accessories. Its rope handle also provides a interesting alternative to leather, and creates a summery feel.
The Belt – Mia Cut Out Leather Belt | Made by our sister company Stephen Collins, not only does this gorgeous leather belt feature a large rustic buckle in antique gold, the beautiful cut-out detailing on the keeper will add casual western hints to your everyday outfit. Alternatively, why not choose one of the plaited belts available on our website?
Now that you have the accessories, it’s time to find the cowboy-style clothes to go with them! Need some style inspiration? Here’s some of our favourite images from Pinterest…
For your top half, a fully buttoned up denim or plaid shirt are must-have pieces – however an embroidered white shirt can work just as well. If possible, include a fringed garment, such as a jacket or accessory. Depending on how authentic you want your western vibe to be, tie a patterned neckerchief for a finishing touch. Team all of this up with either a pair of denim jeans (the ‘double denim’ look can work a treat), or a long floaty skirt that matches the rest of your outfit. And of course, a pair of tan cowboy boots will complete the look!
