Wild West-inspired looks have popped up on many major spring 2014 runways: urban cowgirl at Donna Karan, showgirl-cowgirl mash-up at Rodarte and a take on Rosie the Riveter, the American icon for working women during the Second World War, at Alexis Mabille.
The trend is easy to take on all year round and anywhere in the world. Incorporate elements of the cowgirl in unexpected ways for a cool and effortless vibe without looking costumey. Mix an embellished crop top with jeans, a loose-fitting dress with low-slung chunky belts and cowboy boots, or denim overalls with killer heels. With Karl Lagerfeld’s rodeothemed collection for Chanel’s annual Métiers d’Art show for pre-fall 2014, the cowgirl trend will only get bigger.
