If there is one thing you can be sure about, it’s that at some point the Western Trend always comes back – in some season in a rather discrete way, while at other times really bold and almost over-the-top. This time, what we saw on the catwalks was just the right amount of Wild West Vibes, with pieces that perfectly round up a fall wardrobe. Checked and denim embroidery shirts, fringed skirts, ponchos, fedoras and last but not least Cowboy Boots were definitely the highlights at Autumn/Winter 2016 shows of Ralph Lauren and Fay.
The Western inspired style turns out to be the perfect Look to go for in fall: fabrics are warm but still not too ‘wintry’ and the colors, such as blue, black and all shades of brown, with beautiful and fancy details raise our enthusiasm for the season.
Cowboy Boots changed a lot and have been adapted to the ongoing trends: It’s typical shape with the pointy toe, half-high and loose upper, smooth leather and short block heel is almost gone and the new Western boots are even cooler. Suede, fringes and buckles or lacing are elements that provide the twist (and make them so special). The most beautiful runway Western Looks can be seen below, and including our favorite Cowboy Boots we created a Get The Look for you!
