As we (hopefully) leave the dreary days of winter behind, there's no better time than spring to try new trends and add a few new pieces to your wardrobe for a refresh. And one of those trends to take note of is an updated take on western wear. Tip your hat and saddle up, cowgirl as you try out the western vibes for yourself!
To try this trend and add a little western flare to your frock, you don't need to splurge on an authentic stetson and spend half your paycheck on the finest pair of leather cowboy boots. Rather incorporate dashes of colors, patterns, textures, and subtle hints of the southwest. Think shades of the desert, pops of turquoise, fringe, studs, and earthy edge.
If you are a country music fan, outdoor concert season is the perfect time to debut your new western wear! So let's break it down and chat about Western Vibes on Trend and Four Pieces You Need.
Western Piece #1 Fringe Faux Leather Jacket
Nothing says bad a** country queen like this statement making fringe jacket! This bold number is a standout piece and will be a piece in your closet you reach for time and time again. Either with jeans or cutoff shorts, style this fabulous fringe with a graphic tee or white crop tank top, your favorite boots or booties, and keep everything else minimal. Don't fuss with heavy or big earrings and opt for understated jewelry to let the jacket do all the talking!
Western Piece #2 Beaded Tassel Earrings
If the faux leather fringe jacket is a bit out of your comfort zone as you try the western trend, we suggest these beaded tassel earrings! The mix of turquoise, cream, and coral play up the red desert dirt and cactus green shades you will find in the southwest. These earrings come in six color options and are a nice lighter weight, meaning no droopy lobes!
Western Piece #3 Horn Necklace
I mentioned above that we suggest keeping your jewelry on the lighter side when it comes to rocking the fringe jacket, and this hook necklace is exactly what I had in mind! Available in either gold or silver, this necklace is perfect for every down home country girl. You can also layer it with other pieces from your collection!
Western Piece #4 High Rise Stripe Flare Jean
From fringe to flares, the western trend pushes the limits and honestly, pretty much anything goes! These vintage-inspired high rise flare jeans are my top pick of this roundup because you can style them in so many different ways. One may not think of them to be versatile but we do! If you're headed to a country show, rock these fabulous flares with cowboy boots, a classic white tank or bodysuit, a statement making belt, and a Navajo printed crossbody.
And if you don't have a concert on the docket, rock these figure flattering jeans with a tan or white pair of espadrille wedges, a subtle floral print top, and top the look off with a wide brim hat and hoop earrings! This outfit would be perfect for brunch with bae or wine tasting with the girls!
What do you think of the western trend? We hope these outfit suggestions give you some inspiration and encourage you to get your country girl swag on!
