This season, fashion headed to the frontier with styles that drew inspiration from the Wild West. Taking a true grit approach to dressing, models swaggered down the catwalk clad as though they had just stepped out of a saloon. Ralph Lauren refined his signature southwest aesthetic with supple leather accents, crisp white blouses and intricate turquoise jewelry, while Cavalli and Gucci took a more cowgirl couture approach with glam rawhides and fringe for a rock ’n’ roll edge. Say howdy to the Wild West by integrating modern fringing, luxe suedes in earthy tones, faded denim, hints of turquoise, and vintage-leather satchels into your look. For frontier dressing at its finest, we recommend taking a less is more approach and try integrating only one or two western elements.
