Going Wild for Western, Riding into Fall
Howdy partners! You may have noticed that western-inspired fashion is on the rise this season and there's no surprise. In the previous spring and summer we saw street style looks from celebrities wearing western boots and easy dresses and there's no doubt that rodeo-wear will gallop into fall, but just with an additional autumnal twist this time. Gigi Hadid has customised the western look with a monochrome colour palette which is so chic and more fitting for the colder months. The combination of black and silver trimmings adds a punk-rock-esque flare to the western style.

What's liberating about dressing as though you're ready for rodeo is that there is no limitations to what you can put together. There is a fancy-dress feel to the western aesthetic, which makes it playful; simply because of the contrasting materials and embellishments. You can double the denim, combine denim with suede and leather, add feminine frill blouses, embroidery and studded accessories to amplify the look.
