The AW15 Western Country Meets 70's Style

Did you know I adore country music? Well, I do....big time. To be honest I have somewhat of an eclectic taste in genres from my background in music, but right now as I type this I'm absorbing most of my Spotify time discovering new country stars. Anyways so I'm a big fan of country singer Kacey Musgraves - I love her. My husband and I hoping to go and catch one of her shows on the UK tour as well. This got me thinking about country inspired style and taking some inspiration from Kacey herself.

AW15 style is gradually seeping its way onto the highstreet and so I've created some looks which pull off from a western theme. I recently bought some cowboy boots from a vintage shop so I've been working out ways to add them to the upcoming season looks, whilst featuring some other keys trends.

Keep it traditionally fun
Country Western Style AW15

Hat - Ted Baker Carina Navy Felt Fedora
Bag - Boohoo Maya Fringed Fold Cross Over Bag
Earrings - Fiorelli Aurelia Long Gold Earrings
Nail Polish - OPI My Gecko Does The Trick Nail Polish
I'm not talking going full out Dolly Parton but some western inspired items are classics for a reason.  This shirt from Topshop pulls the look together, tucked into this blue denim front zip midi skirt from Whistles and edgy patterned boots from Office make this western modern.

Double Denim Does It

Cowgirl style
Boots - Durango Ladies Crush Floral Cowboy Boots
Flower Crown - Rock N' Rose Lydia Blue Blossom Crown
Belt - River Island Western Brown Belt
Bag - Glamourous Suede Fringe Bag

I couldn't add cowboy boots could I? Huge fan again of an adaptation of a classic. If you have looked on my Instagram you will spot a pair I picked up from a vintage shop in Nottingham. Places that sell cowboy boits specifically will cost you a lot so hunt around charity and vintage shops for a bargain. 
You may be thinking... 'double denim isn't that a fashion sin?' you're right I would usually agree but I reckon in the right context can look pretty damn smart. Tuck the shirt into the jeans and add a skinny belt for the ultimate look.

Suede, Fringing and Top Tan

Hat - Helen Kaminski Kataka Fedora Hat
Top - F&F Tie Detail Sheer Blouse
Shorts - River Island Berry High Waist Short
Cape - River Island Brown Laser Cut Fringed Cape
Shoes- Steve Madden Kristal

Oh yes gotta love a bit of fringing. Totally fallen in love with some of the AW15 goodies from River Island especially the fringed cap! Slip on suede mules from Aldo keep a western vibe without just keeping everything booted. Floaty top from F&F (loads of great bits from their AW15 collection) compliaments the high waisted River Island shorts well which would ideally be tucked in too. 

Gimme that 70's Vibe

It would be a sin to forget a look with a checked shirt, and this mustard one from Topshop gives a stylish step away from the classic red. For this look I'd wear the skirt and fringed top with the shirt left open. It's quite a 70's meets country vibe for this look.

Cool Country Casuals

I love to dress down and this is my favourite look for that. Big fan of these dunagrees and Oliver Bonas casual hat. Tshirt is rather fun too and it all just works by picking up key trends for the casual western ensemble.

What do you think? What is your key piece for AW15 in this style?
