The Fashion world went bat S*&^ crazy when they saw the DIOR RESORT 2018 show “Dior in the Desert” back in May.
Donned in Western Inspired looks instead of on a runway, models walked back and forth on packed desert dirt in the middle of the Santa Monica Mountains in the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve just after sunset as hot air balloons swayed in the background. Seriously it was magical, and after the show hit the web not a single fashionista alive could wait even one more second to infuse that Wild Wild West vibe into their own closet.
Spanish Style Cowboys hat’s immediately sold out from coast to coast.
But before the DIOR show even happened designers were already tipping their hat’s to the Modern Cowgirl in the FW17 shows. Western motifs were everywhere from DSQUARED2 to Cavalli and Chloe in the form of grommeted leather jackets, fringed shirts, leather pants and prairie dresses.
So what does that mean for you? Well yes, the Western trend is HUGE this season but that doesn’t mean you have to ride into Fall guns a blazin’ looking like Annie Oakley.
You can give your Fall look a dash of Yee-haw by adding a few key elements of western and prairie style while still staying true to your own personal vibe.
Opposites attract, try pairing cowboy boots with a flirty dress, or add fringe elements such as a jacket or bag to your evening look. Remember CONTRAST is a fashion girl’s best friend.
By choosing one or two western inspired statement pieces to do the talkin’ you stay on-trend without looking like you are wearing a costume.
