Have you watched ‘Yellowstone’ on tv? Have you, like me, fallen in love with cowgirl/boy fashion? I see in magazines that cowgirl boots, hats, fringe jackets and plaid shirts are definitely on trend. Beth from Yellowstone would definitely approve! For us at Zulucow, its small towns, free roaming horses, sunsets cascading over snow capped mountains. And ranches full of stylish cowgirls and cowboys. It’s a place that most of see in the movies but also somewhere that fashion houses have used for decades as inspiration and we’re here to let you know – Cowgirl Chic is back!

Just like the 70’s retro prints and 80’s glam style, the cowgirl chic western-inspired look always seems to come back around and creep into Autumn fashion trends. But how do you dress western-chic without looking like you are stepping out in a cowgirl fancy dress? Don’t be too scared of the costume connotations this Autumn, think more classy cowgirl than halloween party cowgirl. The current western trend is less dress-up and more of a development on fashion’s current lust for hardwearing and hearty staple pieces. Think of Suede ankle boots, denim and fringed bags, all easy-to-wear and practical.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite looks, pieces and brands that can take you from cosy autumn wear to chic western lady in a subtle yet fashionable way.

Find your staple western cowgirl chic statement piece

We all have a staple statement piece (or two, or three) in our wardrobe and the western cowgirl chic trend is no different. Instead of rushing out and buying everything in sight with a fringe or cow print, we recommend picking a good quality staple that you can pair with the clothes you have already. For example, a staple pair of cowboy boots that will go with your best jeans. These boots from Camel suede boots from Mary Viento as they are a timeless classic and would look fabulous with anything!

Accessorise your western cowgirl chic outfit!

An accessory can be the perfect way to brighten up an outfit or in some cases, make the outfit! If you are tempted by the western chic trend but don’t want to change your wardrobe then why not add a cowgirl inspired accessory? In the form of a fringe bag or even a belt, adding an accessory to your everyday outfit can completely transform your outfit for the day.

If you already have a passion for a western lifestyle wardrobe, you will know that simply by adding a cowboy inspired belt buckle you are halfway there to western chic. And you know it! Zulucow’s cowhide belts are finely crafted from beautiful Nguni cowhide and are all finished with a simple brushed buckle. They are the perfect accessory when you want to add a touch of western chic to an outfit and come in a variety of colours so you can mix and match depending on the rest of your outfit too.

The western cowgirl chic trend can also extend to your daily handbag. Stand out for the right reasons with one of our show-stopping Cowhide Fringe bags. This on trend handbag is finely crafted from sumptuous natural leather and dramatic Nguni cowhide, it not only takes all your daily essentials, but is a real eye-catcher for every occasion.

Take the western trend to work

As the autumn nights close in, we all crave cosy yet classy clothing that is practical yet stylish as we head back to work and school after a long hot summer. If you want to add cowgirl chic to your office wardrobe or even the school run then think tailored western shirts, straight leg jeans and buckled belts. We fell instantly in love with this western contrast stitch shirt from Topshop and can already picture it with tailored black trousers or even your smartest pair of jeans. If you don’t feel like you can go full-on western at work then why not just add one of our sustainable cowhide belts to add a subtle touch to any work outfit.

When in doubt – stick to denim!

We all know that you can’t go wrong in denim and the western chic trend is no exception to that rule. Take a look at the trend on the catwalk and you will find all sorts of western denim, from our beloved denim jeans, to tailored denim shirts and denim fringed jackets – we LOVE them all! Denim is one of the sturdiest materials out there and in our eyes will never go out of style.

In our eyes cowboy boots and denim jeans are ‘partners in crime’ so if you really want to go all out with this trend then it’s worth finding your perfect pair of jeans to match your boots. Versatile and flattering, our favourite cowgirl inspired jeans have to be the trusty bootcut style. Just add a fabulous pair of cowboy boots, a matching accessory and you’ve nailed the trend.

In Summary

We are loving that the western chic cowgirl trend is back and we hope it’s here to stay! A lot of our pieces here at Zulucow are inspired by the western trend and if you already love the trend then we are confident you will find a cowgirl inspired accessory to update your wardrobe. Next up on the blog we will also be looking at the western inspired trends for homeware this year so you can also decorate your home in this fun yet classy style.
