Western Trend Fall 2012

Western Just Got Wearable: Shop Fall's Cowgirl-Cool Trend Now

For Fall 2012, designers ditched the urban jungle and felt more at home on the range, serving up multiple iterations of the wild wild West trend on the runway. Moschino captured the essence of country girl gone glam with its fitted blazers, skinny riding pants, and cowboy hats — a rather literal take on the Old West that also gave a nod to Spanish bullfighters. Band of Outsiders took things to Little House on the Prairie territory with its long, sweeping dresses topped with ankle-length coats and boots, giving us a glimpse of a chic, grown-up Laura Ingalls. Some of our favorite Western-inspired pieces came courtesy of Isabel Marant, whose embroidered button-downs and fringe jeans were something straight out of a small-town thrift shop. When it comes to making this trend work in real life, it goes without saying that it works best when woven in with more modern pieces. Pair a floral yoke blouse with dark-denim jeans and loafers, and try wearing your romantic prairie dress with a sleek pair of leather ankle boots. Get started on your Wild West wardrobe when you shop some of our editors' picks below.
