fashion TREND ALERT: Wild Wild West

What do we have here partner? What we have is a total wild, wild west vibe: cowboy hats and fringe, ditsy ruffles and embroidery. Coach showcased a ton of peasant dresses layered with fringe accessories. Whether it was a fringe jacket or a necklace, the fringe touches were perfect for the western vibes. Although the whimsical dresses were feminine and dainty, they decided to add a hint of edge with black leather boots. Black combat boots could be seen accompanying all of the ruffles and floral embroidery making this combination creative and fun. Christian Dior featured a western collection, but everything was black and white making the western theme uniquely minimalistic. Dior focused on bringing western vibes through ruffle details and metal decals. This season bring out the adventurer inside and have fun with the western trend.

How To Style:

Since I am not much of a country/bohemian gal, I decided to partner up with local fashion enthusiast, Abigail Watson, to put together a few looks that almost anyone can pull off this spring without having to go all out! With her city chic flare Abigail was able to bring an urban touch to a rural trend.


From Day
Keep things comfortable and casual by owning the Canadian Tuxedo look and rock some denim on denim. Break up the denim on denim by pairing your jeans and denim jacket with a feminine and flirty white blouse. For an extra feminine flare, make sure the top has ruffles! Throw on a pair of cowgirl boots and you’re all set for checking out the local farmer’s market or grabbing ice creams with some friends!

To Night
For your next date night, mix things up a bit with an embroidered leather jacket and matching cowgirl hat. Throw this combination over a romantic sundress and add some rustic inspired jewelry for a look that is certain to steal the show!
