AW12 Trend Alert: Western Chic

Thursday, 16 August 2012

by Adele

Having already seen Western influences trending on the AW12 catwalks - think Marant & Rodarte, get ready to embrace the wild wild west this AW!

 Of course, elements of the trend have been around during S/S with plenty of fringing from dresses to bags, but the trend for this autumn is out in force, with more collar detailing, bolo ties & cowboy boots, which are already flooding the High Street.

However, don't be fooled into thinking it's all about checked shirts & cowboy hats. I for one am pleased that Western has an edge of glam this AW. 

So what are you going to be wearing from this trend? 
How about suede western shirts with fringing, cowboy boots paired with the skinny cropped pants with studded seams for starters.
For a night out, try glamming it up with a broderie anglaise dress, as per the photos!
