trend of the fashion week!!! - western

hello I haven't written a fashion post in a while, I have sooooo many ideas of fashion sort of posts, that sometimes I think too much and end up writing nothing and I love clothes so that's not great. so I  thought that each week I would pick a fashion trend and write a post about it, filled with lots of clothes and giving me a great reason to browse lots of clothes, yay!!!

anyway this post is all about the western style!!!

the western fashion trend is all over the fashion stage at the moment and it looks like it is a big trend for spring/summer, being seen on many catwalks and it is layering up the high street shelves.
side note, ahh I find it so annoying when high street shops put 'hide' clothes behind other clothes making it hard to see all their range, meaning degrees in contortion would be very helpful in the mission to find the right item or size. [sorry clothes shopping, love you really]
anyway back to the great western fashion, it seems there are so many items available; shirts, jeans, short shorts, jumpers, skirts, dresses, boots all with a hint of western flare. the western trend also spans a range of topics from prairie chic to cowgirl.

I have visited many a high street website, and after getting sidetracked a few times [ahh internet shopping] I found some great pieces, some of which I might have to hide my debit card from before I no money left.

 I love this river island jumper with western-esk cut out detail and the acid wash colour kind of gives another western feel. 
fringing, fringing, fringing, this new look shirt really embraces the cowgirl.
the embroidery on this topshop shirt gives it a real western feel.

again the fringing on the new look skirt gives a cowgirl look.
I love these denim new look shorts, dip dye, western style fabric, ummm.
the ditsy print long new look skirt could suit the prairie or cowgirl look.
loving the black topshop shorts studs and western style tassels.
acid wash river island skirt, yes please, it could fit many fashion styles.
embroidery black topshop shorts another western look.

love the shirt dress from new look, worn with the other two items here would look great.
this simple topshop necklace could add a western feel to an outfit.
I really love this topshop denim jacket, it again could go with many fashion styles.

here are a few outfits I put together; the first one is kinda all out cowgirl but could look quite smart together, ye hah. I love the second outfit, its comfy and casual with a western feel. the third outfit I think looks cool and casual with a western feel.

there are so many ways to wear this trend whether you keep it simple with a shirt and jeans or adorn vast amounts of studs, fringing and applique

who likes the western trend? how would you style it?

love Alice
