COLLARS IN FASHION: Western



From the runway shows of Isabel Marant and Moschino, who would have thought dressing up like Jess from Toy Story would be so fashionable? Don't forget the influences on TV as well, such as the re-make of Dallas. The trend consists of; fringing, leather, denim and hats, but once again, you can create your western outfit with a collar! 

These Gold collar tips from Regal Rose, are perfect for an inspired Cowgirl look on a checked or denim shirt. Wear with some cut-off shorts (if it's warm enough!) Or either with a pair of flared or boyfriend jeans, for the denim look. If you want to get creative, the DIY bolo tie I made last August can add a Western touch, as well as being unique. So go and give it a go!

Other than collars, I'm loving Topshop's black ankle boots (above), they will practically go with anything! You can dress them up or down; by day, layer up with a skater dress, a checked shirt tied or unbuttoned and a grey wool blazer topped off with a fringed scarf. Then by night, go leather luxe, with a leather skirt (probably my favourite item for A/W), teamed with a sheer shirt and collar tips.

Yeehaa! I hope these ideas help as the Western look can sometimes be quite hard to pull off - I think the most effective way is by adding just a hint of it in an outfit, whether that's a bag, boots or a shirt. 

Experiment with the trend, see what works for you and I hope you are well!
