Monday, December 3, 2012 Guest Edit: The West Side With Vintage Virgin
No, I’m not talking Tupac’s “West Side,” but more like Annie Oakley’s version of the wild West! The cowboy (and cowgirl) ways of fashion are making a comeback and it’s no rodeo roundup. Very subtle western trends are popping up everywhere, taking you from the farm to the streets with cowboy hats, ankle booties, dungarees, bolo ties, concho belts, fringe and button downs.
Now, you know me, I’m a risk-taker, so I decided to go for a more modern look by rocking a solid gold sweater and jeans with statement pieces from the hat down to the boot. But if you’re not ready to toss on a cowboy hat just yet, then kick up your heels in the Kitt Ankle Boots with some double-down denim or just shout it out in the Outlaw Tank, leather skinnies and a distressed jacket.
Here’s some inspiration to draw from…. You might just discover you’re more of a Western girl than you think!
