5 OF THE BEST WESTERN ACCESSORIES
By Eleanor Dunne, 27 July 2019
ICYMI, the Wild West is a pretty big deal right now. And since we’ve championed the fringed jacket and big upped the prairie dress, it's time we spotlight some ranch-inspired accessories. They're especially important if you want to don’t want to go full-on cowboy but still fancy just a little bit of that Old Town Road vibe. Read on for five of the best.
Do have a cow
As you probably already know, animal print has been having a serious renaissance as of late. And a print like the one on these boots is unique way to get a bit wild and unleash your inner cow girl at the same time. To really milk the aesthetic, wear these beauts with light-wash denim and a matching top. Moo-tiful.
Hats off to ya
OK, a leopard-print cowboy hat may not be something you’re going to wear day-to-day. But it’s a fun way to shade from the sun at festivals, or a standout alternative for your straw hat on holidays. Wear it with a denim shorts and full-on calf-length cowboy boots for peak yee-haw.
Of course, fringed jackets are a one-way ticket to the Wild West, but you can bring some of the stringy stuff to your accessories game, too. This black bag is a fresh update on the 90s shoulder style thanks to some disco-infused chains. Not exactly practical for riding around the ranch but ideal for a night out with an LBD.
You’re going to need something to hold up those all-American jeans, and a bull-inspired belt is ideal. Plus, cow prints were seen at Burberry and Richard Quinn for SS19, so you can say you’re bang on trend, too. As if that wasn't enough, ASOS DESIGN have added some sparkly rhinestones to up the ante even more. Delightful.
Is this square-toed beauty a cowboy or a Chelsea boot? Who knows, who cares – all that matters is a pair like this would make a sweet addition to your 24/7 wardrobe. And while it may not be boot season just yet, it’s never too early to say howdy to your perfect partners for AW19.
