Hot Shoe Trend Alert: Western Trend 2018
Western glamour is a BIG trend for 2018 and was seen on countless runway shows from Celine, to Isabel Marant to Calvin Klein, to Chloe and many others. Plus, you've been asking about it on Instagram, so I wanted to dedicate some time as today's Hot Trend Alert to talk about the western boots you saw me wearing during Coachella and the Western trend overall for 2018.
How to Rock The Western Trend in 2018
The trick to rocking the western trend in 2018 is integrating the trend with one piece, as opposed to going head to toe western. We don't want to look like a walking rodeo (unless of course you're going to a rodeo :). So what we want to do, again, is add one piece at a time - it's probably the easiest way to rock the trend and look great in the city (or your next music festival). This can be done a few ways: a cowboy hat, a bolero, prairie blouses, flannel shirts, silver-buckled belts or a good ol' cowboy boot.
It's a super fun trend, and again, one that is easy to rock. In fact, you likely have a few of these items already in your wardrobe. Just in case you do not, we're going to a bit more in-depth with cowboy boots inspo for you!
Styling with denim is a super easy way to do it and be out the door in seconds. If not, try a fun dress as well!
Affordable Cowboy Boots for Western Trend
So let's focus on the cowboy boots. You saw me wearing many boots while at Coachella and I swear: these were the most talked about items in every post. If you've missed them, take a look at the outfit round up, too. Plus, you also saw them in the most recent edition of the 1 Piece 3 Ways Series as we styled a kimono for festival season.
The Durango Accessorized Cowboy boot is a great boot to start the conversation with. You simply can't go wrong with a flat, or detailed boot like this one. It's perfect for music festivals, and to add a bit of boho flair to any casual outfit.
Fringe is another amazing way to add the western trend to your look. Whether that is a fringe jacket, or a fringe boot. This one was made for music festivals and for taking pictures while dancing. Style with denim shorts or jeans and you're set!
And don't forget to be playful as well: You can - and should! - have fun with colors and boot height. For colors, my recommendation is to stick to brown, black, red, white or ones that integrate multiple colors. And don't forget to play with boot heights as well. You can go anywhere from ankle booties to a traditional height for cowboy boots that hit at the calf.
How will you be rocking the Western trend this year? Let me know in the comments below!
