Get ready to break out the denim on denim and cowboy boots because this season is all about embracing a little bit of country—in the chicest way possible, of course! From leather vests and fringe detailing to snakeskin and embroidery, we’re seeing traditionally rustic textures and patterns made brand new and fashion-forward. Everything feels more luxe, tailored, and detailed, while also holding on to a touch of rawness with ripped elements and cut off hemlines.
We think the best way to pull off this trend is to grab a statement piece that you can wear over and over again all season long. And in this case, a suede jacket with fringe detailing is our favorite choice. Thanks to the design genius of Veronica Beard, this western-inspired piece is both feminine and fun. We love that it’s a little bit cropped which makes it easy to wear with dresses and high waisted pants. But truly you can throw it on with anything—a dress, a skirt, or your favorite pair of jeans.
This is a piece that you’ll be wearing far beyond fall because it’s a truly a timeless classic that also brings texture and dimension to any outfit. To compliment the jacket with this look, we paired it with a mustard tie blouse, black skinny jeans, and a white tassel bag. A great look for running around town or out to brunch.
Michael’s Styling Tip: Whether you live in a city or the suburbs, one key western item is a great staple for your closet. Since it’s a trend that’s incredibly versatile and easy to wear, you really can’t go wrong. But remember stick to one main item and pair the rest of your look around it.
