We love a good fashion trend here on The Social, but there are some trends that tend to feel a little more costume than fashion…and the Western look is one of them. But Western-inspired fashion can be super chic and anything but costumey.

The key to nailing the trend is to notwear Western pieces head-to-toe because that’s when you get into costume territory. You want to incorporate elements of the trend into an outfit and mix-and-match them with your own wardrobe staples like your favourite pair of jeans or white button-up. And if you’re still not convinced, keep in mind that Western-inspired fashion is largely done in a neutral colour palette, which makes it so easy to wear.

Stylist Erica Wark highlights some of her favourite ways to wear the trend this season.

WESTERN ACCESSORIES

Accessories are a great way to experiment with a trend without the commitment. Consider adding a Western-inspired belt, bag and boot to your favourite sweater and jeans combo this fall.

WESTERN SKIRT

Another way to dip your toes into the Western trend is to pair a basic black turtleneck with a key piece, like a suede skirt. The black slouchy boot balances out the look and adds a bit of that Western flair.

WESTERN COAT

It’s coat season, so why not invest in one with some Western details? Style with a pussy-bow blouse and a wool midi skirt to complete the look.

WESTERN DRESS

If you really want to commit to the trend, this is how to wear more than one Western-inspired piece at a time. An embroidered tulle maxi dress styled with cowboy boots and all black accessories looks incredibly chic for an evening out.
