The other day, whilst talking to a friend about style and fashion, and influences, I realised how much about Western/ cowboy/Red Indian style I love. Let's start with the Victorian frilly blouses, preferably in white, but also in prints, worn with woollen skirts, then pack on a leather and turquoise concho belt and you're done. The Navajo print, such a classic, and timeless, and really easy to wear with everything in your closet. Fringed suede, paired with anything, from an evening dress to jeans, always a safe option. The long duster coat, more like a relaxed trench, the men's trimmed shirt, so cool!
The only Western piece that I really cannot abide, (but have tried to like!), are cowboy boots! They just look awful on me, and I don't walk right in them. I fell head over heels for an exquisite pair in Ibiza, that was probably my worst buy ever!!! But give me a pair of beaded moccasins, and I'm a happy camper.
This season, Ralph Lauren has for the first time ever, given us the possibility to get what you want straight off the runway, no waiting around for 6 months! So get inspired for this season and jazz up your look.
This Fall/Winter '16, Ralph Lauren showed a runway collection filled with western influences as is his style, and I'm in love. I would never wear the matching bag/ shoes but yes to a slinky heel.
