Fall Fashion Fever: Best Western

Western-influenced fashion goes beyond denim and plaid this fall. With booties, leather, and desert hues, the frontier takes a new shape in this season’s styles. Skirts reminiscent of the prairie, sweaters with Native American-inspired prints, and cowboy-like colored denim take center stage as a fresh interpretation of the Wild West emerges. Here are three must-haves to add this trend to any outfit.

The Sweater

Layer up in blanket sweaters with a Western feel. This cozy trend is the perfect fusion of slouchy and chic.  Pick a patchwork-like print or geometric, tribal pattern to warm up a fall dress or pair of leggings.

 The Bootie

Saddle up with steel-toed, snake-print, and suede booties. Subtle wood-stacked heels make these boots the perfect addition to colored jeans, maxi skirts, or practically any fall ensemble.

The Denim

Classic blue jeans are getting kicked out of the bottom half of your wardrobe and being worn on top. Taking their place are pants with a pop of print and color. Pair a denim shirt with shades from the sunset, like rich red and desert rose pink.
