In the last couple of months, everyone has been going crazy for cowboys with western-inspired looks. Of course, this style inspiration has come from the internets' new favourite child, Lil Nas X, but fashion designers have long been tapping into to western style. Like 80s glam and 60s chic, cowboy fashion keeps coming back around to make appearances on runways across London, Milan, New York and Paris. To give you a little inspiration we’re running down our favourite western fashion runway looks!
Top Western Inspired Runway Looks
1. Calvin Klein AW18
Satin? Check. Block colours? Check. An absolute look? Check! This glitzy take on Western style is a surprisingly wearable yet glam outfit. An easy one to recreate, find yourself a pair of vintage, smart, colourful trousers and pair with a classic western shirt. Bonus points for wearing a colour-block turtleneck underneath.
2. Balmain Resort 2020
Don those cowboy boots, Balmain are taking us way out west with their resort 2020 collection. Shot against a postcard-perfect desert backdrop the whole collection features cacti imagery, natural fibres and a palette of warm oranges, browns and beiges - of course alongside a LOT of denim. The layering of shirts and jacket makes this the perfect trans-seasonal look so you can ride on into autumn in style.
3. Ashley Williams AW17
The perfect outfit for when you have the rodeo at 4 and the gym at 6. Ashley Williams perfectly sums up quirky London style with her collections and her AW17 offering was no exception.
