5 Fashion Bloggers Show How to Dress Wild, Wild West

A new trend is creeping up on the catwalks – from fringes to embroidered shirts, it’s pretty clear that the cow girls are dominating the fashion scene with the wild, wild West trend. No need to go all-out Western, though, since we don’t want our readers to end up looking like they’re heading to a costume party. See how we put together West-inspired outfits that are practical for everyday wear.

If there’s a Western item that’s highly underrated in the fashion world, we’re pretty sure it’s the embroidered shirt. The Western folks love to play with contrasting yokes on their buttondown sleeves, often adding gorgeous embroidered ornamentation on them. Pick out a pretty shirt and wear it with a statement belt, ripped jeans, and a mod leather backpack. Don’t forget the embellished wedge boots.

We love how fringes have taken on a modern version by turning into slashes in this look. For the classic loyalists, however, fringe crop and handkerchief hem tops can be found across a wide range of retail stores, so it shouldn’t be so difficult to jump into the trend. Wear your fringe top with a denim cutoffs, a fedora (we prefer this over an actual cowboy hat because it doesn’t give off that costume feel), and a pair of studded cutout boots to complete the look.

Nothing says yeehaw more than denim, and to show you just how serious we are about that, we’re pulling a denim-on-denim Western-inspired look. Pick out a chambray top with a contrasting yoke (check out the suede find we got below) and wear it with your best pair of skinny jeans. Finish the look with a tan fringe clutch, some gold jewelry, and über sexy slouched suede boots.

We can’t really go through this post without mentioning leather, can we? Grab a chambray or an embroidered shirt, tuck it into a pleated leather skirt, and connect both seamlessly with a statement belt. Crank up the Western elements by picking out an oversized fringed tote to go with the outfit. Polish the look with gold accessories and a sexy low-cut bootie.

Of course when you say West, you not only have the cowboys but there are the indians as well. Don an Indian-inspired open kaftan with cropped denim top and high waisted destroyed denim cutoffs. Insert fringes by wearing them on your boots and on an oversized tote. Pull the look together with a leather belt and slip on cat eye sunglasses for that chic modern feel.
