After numerous appearances of the Western trend on the runways and streets, I was pretty convinced I needed to adapt this trend into my everyday wardrobe. A full-blown cowboy look can be intimidating to approach, but there are only a few key pieces you need to infuse a trendy western feel that doesn’t look forced. I never thought I’d catch myself wearing cowboy boots or anything along those lines, but surprise, surprise… As Alexa Chung once said, “Never say never in fashion because you’ll be wearing never in two year’s time.” If you’re ready to wear the western trend too, follow my tips below.

Cowboys Boots

Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to nailing down the western trend is the footwear. There is nothing that screams a more casual Americana than a pair of classic cowboy boots. In order to achieve a contemporary twist, try bold colored boots like white or red. These can easily be paired with floral midi-dresses for a feminine, girl-next-door look. Remember that you it doesn’t always have to come with a block heel either. These Dorateymur boots are the best example (they’re on sale now at Shopbop)!

If you are looking to go for something more subtle, ankle boots with western buckles or stitch detailing is an easier way to achieve the same sort of look. I absolutely love these sort of booties paired with some frayed, cropped denim.

Statement Belt

This is an effortless, affordable way to try out the western trend with much less commitment – the belt. A neutral colored belt with a large western buckle definitely adds that element of old-fashioned Americana.

Pair it with a chunky sweater and jeans or use it to cinch the waist of a shirt dress to complete the cowgirl vibe.

Western Shirt

An easy way to translate the western trend into a classic shirt is by adding elements such as ruffles, piped yoke, fringe and high-collars. These elements, either solo or combined, are accents that make simple button-up suitable for the Wild Wild West. All you need to do is tuck it into a pair of Levi’s (or mini skirt) and you are all set to go.

As far as details are concerned, fringe is always creatively infused into these rodeo vibe looks. Whether the fringe is added to a pair of cowboy boots, suede jacket or shirt, it manages to add an extra value and western aesthetic. If you’re anti-fringe, it’s best to adopt something simple such as a fringe bag that can act as a statement accessory.

Now that we corralled all the best pieces to create the perfect modern, western look, you can play around with it. Remember to style it with something on the contemporary side to create the perfect balance of old and new.
