Yes, we are down to the last installment of my True To Yourself series where I have put together outfits that express my personality featuring Ariat footwear and denim. For this last installment, I wanted to play with some of the western trends this season to create a sassy, fun look.
FLASHY AND SASSY
Of course the focus of this outfit is on the shoes! These are the Ariat Unbridled Layla’s and they are lookers, am I right? I have been dressing these up for more formal occasions but today, I wanted to use them to kick the sass up a notch! These booties come in this antique silver color as well as a neutral tan – they are both beautiful! Fringe booties are so on trend and these just really take the cake – they are so flashy and made to last.
The best complement for this sassy ensemble has to be the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. This pair is the Ariat Boyfriend Americana jean which gives the perfect laid back feel. I love a boyfriend jean in a light wash because it gives off more casual vibes.
On the top half, I started with a super trendy graphic tank – how cute is this one? Obviously anything cactus is on trend right now but I didn’t want it to come off too trendy, so I layered over it with an Ariat denim button down followed by a bright wool vest. Both the denim and the wool vest are cowboy classics that really bring balance to the trendy fringe and cactus I have going on.
Graphic Tank: Baha Ranch Western Wear
Denim Button Down: Ariat
Wool Vest: Rhonda Stark
To accessorize, I started with my two staple rings that go with everything: my custom stamped leather ring and my silver band. Rings are the simplest way to add interest to your accessories without having to match or over think it. Next I threw on a beaded metallic bracelet and a statement necklace.
I love this necklace because it can be worn against red, orange, pink, purple and blue and still pull things together. In this case, it really pulled the colors in the vest together and completed the accessories. But even if you have all the best jewelry in the world, a girl needs a good handbag. This buckskin leather clutch is seriously my go to and looks great with everything. I love the studs and bucking horse for a little western flair too!
Leather Ring: Eve West
Statement Necklace: Younkers
Buckskin Clutch: LOV Leathers
The best way to have fun with trends is to make them last with the classics in your closet. I love to mix different vibes to bring out a sassy attitude in my outfits. Whether it’s wearing a cheeky graphic tee with a vintage denim jacket or dressing up a western shirt with a fringe skirt, there are tons of ways to mix and match the trends that you see in the boutiques. Don’t ever forget that you should wear the trends you want to, not because someone tells you it’s what is in. Never be afraid to style things your way and express yourself no matter you shape, size or style!
