The Cowboy Boots

We love…

If you’re just starting out this trend, a simple everyday western bootie in a black suede or black leather is perfect to incorporate into your wardrobe. Choose a pair that is a comfortable heel height, with stitch detailing (pictured above) that is easily paired with a prairie dress or peasant blouse and shorts. For those that are more daring, choose a pair with hardware, fringe, colorblocked, or in a print like snakeskin.

Western-Inspired Print Accessories

We love…

We’re loving this bandana/paisley print YSL bag that draws influences from the country western style, but western-inspired prints can also include the popular cattle print, different variations of paisley, geometric prints on textured fabrics, finished with fringe detailing. Incorporating any one of these elements on an accessory like a bag, or as a trim on a garment is a stylish way to elevate a contemporary outfit with western influences.

The Western Shirt

We love…

This western shirt has a beautiful, intricate embroidered design, but any western-styled shirt is sure to elevate your outfit with its classic structured silhouette. You can’t go wrong with a denim western shirt – it’s pretty much a staple and can be worn in so many ways. Sites like Etsy, Depop, and Poshmark also carry a variety of unique western shirts if you’re looking to shop vintage or second-hand. To modernize the look, opt for a piece in a softer fabric to pair with straight cut jeans and western boots. Make a major statement with a western shirt detailed with fringe, or go for a crisp white western shirt tucked into a flowy midi skirt, accessorized with a cowboy hat.
