Western style has been slowly creeping back into closets the past year or two, but I think it’s safe to say that the look has become a full-on trend at this point, with cowboy inspired ankle-boots, bolero hats, and – of course – plenty of fringe…
The good news? You don’t have to look like a cowgirl to rock this trend – as proven in the looks above. Classy and very city-worthy attire all the way.
Of course, if you happen to be one Miss Olivia Palermo, you can probably get away with upping your Western game a bit. Might I suggest not attempting the suede shirt + suede fringe skirt combo for the average person though? People might think you’ve adopted your Halloween costume a little early this year…
I have major respect for the double-fringe aspect going on here though. Fringe skirt and fringe bag? Challenge accepted.
The key here is adding sophisticated elements – like those to-die-for Valentinos (just when I thought I was really sick of them – that color changed my mind). And keeping the fringe classy.
Mixing metals is also super acceptable with Western style, so those Acanthus earrings are perfect in every way - I love the way the prongs mimic the fringe (bonus, they separate so you can just wear the studs too!)
But the best news of all? I won’t have to be putting away my chambray shirts anytime soon.
