STYLE ADVICE: A Western Spirit

Appearing last spring on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Céline, and Coach—the southwest inspired street style looks have not ceased to lose fashion influence. However, this Western wear trend may not be exactly what you picture when you think of the great wild, wild west. Instead, the suede, fringe, and patchwork of the designer shows created a revolution of a perfectly mastered street-style entirely made up of a mixture of modern classic cowgirl fashion and a western-regional spirit.

This Fashionista incorporated elements of this southwestern trend flawlessly in this look. She used the recent return of the flare jean to her full advantage, as she paired them with a simple boot and metal detailed belt with a tassel tie. Adding a feature as little as a belt can tremendously affect the entire style of the outfit. Challenge yourself to fit in new pieces every now and then that transform your usual style and give you an entirely new look.

Next, she topped her neutral, loose-fitting sweater with a layered necklace embellished with earth-toned stones and a roped choker. Covering a basic top with a variety of necklaces is always a good idea to spice up the ensemble. She threw on this Aztec-design patterned bag. The design, the tassel keychain, and the bolo tie detail on the strap effortlessly embodies the theme of the outfit and bring the entire look together.

Stay cultured and rock a Western Americana-inspired look this season! Bring out your inner urban cowgirl and experiment with these southwestern trends as the weather begins warming up and winter turns to spring.
