The Refined Cowgirl | How To Wear This Year’s Western Trend

How can a cowgirl be classy, you may question. Here’s the answer…

Wild horses won’t keep you away from this year’s western hype – it’s destined to be everywhere this Summer. 2018’s take on this trend is more couture than cavalier. Think of Jessie the cowgirl riding her horse around the Upper East side and you’re on the right track. Injecting a touch of rodeo refinery into your style is a surefire way to update your wardrobe for the impending season. Say yee-ha to suede button shirts, structured saddle bags and smart leather cowboy boots. The more lavish, the better.

This year’s cowgirl is effortlessly slick and polished – when it comes to dressing down or styling up, she always chooses the latter. Small details are important to her, from buttoning up her denim shirt all the way to cinching in her waist with a shiny western belt. The perfect style formula? A subtle blend of the wild west with your trusty everyday classics. Wear a neatly ironed neckerchief with your favourite white Oxford shirt and embrace a cowboy boot with your timeless indigo jeans. It doesn’t have to feel like fancy dress – these small style tweaks will guarantee an incredibly chic demeanour for summer.
