Style Advice of the Week

Go buck wild this fall with western inspired attire. You don’t need to learn how to herd cattle or hitch a ride on a covered wagon to flaunt this look. Luckily the sheep are already sheared and the gold is already mined. Don’t panic; you don’t have to dirty up your new western wardrobe, after all dry cleaning is no one’s friend.

Upon breaching the frontier of campus with my camera at hand I discovered this Fashionista. Like Timothy O’Sullivan I was on a quest to document her shearling coat.

This Fashionista proved her shearling jacket could be thrown over any outfit to brave the vast expanse of campus. She pioneered a new look by layering the jacket over her simple Mason gear T-shirt and lived in jeans. Instantly, this comfortable, basic outfit proved its fashionable role with a little help from the outerwear and the fuchsia flats.

This fall the uncharted western territory inspired Isabel Marant’s ready-to-wear collection that’s packed with fringe and embroidery galore. Trailblazing Fashionistas/os take note; no matter what direction your closet may face, it should appeal to the West. For starters, a shearling coat is a great staple piece that can be worn over a variety of outfits whether that may be jeans or a dress and tights.

Not only have jackets become a western wonder but also nearly every article of clothing has drawn from the West. You can traverse the plain lawns of campus with Native American inspired leather boots all the while keeping warm in your shearling vest with Aztec print. Last but not least, spruce up your jewelry box with turquoise jewelry. Even if you reside in the North or on the East coast you can discover new terrain from your head to your toes without saddling up. This western attire proves casual for those low maintenance days we all yearn for when thinking about the prospect of attending class.

Prepare your lasso, this look has yet to be tamed.
