15 Western-Inspired Pieces to Channel Your Inner Cowgirl Cool
Every season, we witness designers' global travels via their colorfully eclectic collections, and for Spring 2012, the likes of Marc Jacobs, Thakoon, Pamela Love, and Jeremy Scott showed off pieces straight from the wild, wild West. It doesn't stop there, though: Isabel Marant showed off a Parisian-cool lineup of Western-inspired button-ups, cowgirl hats, and boots for Fall '12, too. Not to worry, this doesn't mean you'll be donning traditional whipstitch chaps, Wranglers, and a chunky pair of rodeo boots this time around. Instead, think Marc Jacobs sheer gingham, Vanessa Bruno fringe, and Free People embroidered chambray — we've culled 15 pieces perfect for channeling your inner prairie girl-meets-modern day style setter.
