Every week, we bring you the best shoppable fashion and lifestyle stories from the editors at LifeStyle Mirror. Today we are sharing Taylor Davies' tips on styling Western wear .
The French have a unique ability to breathe new life into Americana Western wear. Perhaps it's their vantage point from across the Atlantic that gives an objective point of view on our history, or maybe it's just because they're French . Either way, Chloé, Isabel Marant  and Nina Ricci  are leading the way on the most stylish of westward fronts. But, of course, no one does true Western wear better than the Americans themselves. You'll find plenty of home-grown fashion from Ralph Lauren , Frye , and Gap that'll easily do the trick.
Like most of the very distinctive trends of the season — overalls , animal prints , knee-high gladiator sandals  — the key to pulling off Western wear is keeping your references subtle. Chloé's long, striped twill skirt  goes perfectly with a chambray shirt for a subtle prairie moment, while Gucci's fringed suede bag  quietly complements a men's gingham shirt from J.Crew .
Coachella  is a well-timed excuse to give this trend a try with rugged leather boots, breezy linen tops and plenty of hats. City-dwellers and those averse to all things music festival should feel free to embrace a Western moment in the urban jungle. A swingy, handkerchief-hem dress  or a pair of turquoise chandelier earrings  work in any setting from Paris to Montana.
