Western and cowgirl influences were seen all over the Spring/Summer 2018 catwalks with Celine, Tom Ford, Versace, Chloe and Calvin Klein getting in on the All-American action. The biggest nod to the trend so far had to be from Celine, whose breathtaking show included a full length lambswool embroidered coat. The look was polished and said “Rodeo Drive” more than “Rodeo Cowgirl” which is exactly how to think when translating this trend into your everyday wardrobe. Elsewhere Tom Ford opted for full Western inspired head to toe denim and Calvin Klein went for chic patent cowboy boots. Versace showed us how to rock the trend with black leather look blouses and matching skirts – throwing their timeless gold Gianni prints in for good measure while Chloe went for a more demure Western prarie inspired look with soft smocks and floaty skirts. Of course topped off with knee length cowboy boots. This is a fun trend that shouldn’t necessarily be worn head to toe – pick your favourite nod to the Western trend and go for a chic/tailored version of that.
