It is not in all the time though when it was introduced in the 70s of the XIX century, it exists keeping all recognizable and vivid peculiarities. The style has not undergone sea changes with the lapse of time. It goes without saying that a rare person affords wearing garments all in country style which is quite reasonable. The images trendy today exist with adoption from the past which is embodied in expressive and comfortable style.

News from the Wild West

Country style aka western is the vivid and intelligible concept suitable in the easy and familiar interpretation.  The style appeared in the West, in the land of dashing cowboys and hard-working farmers. On the one part, this is the pompous style with the hat, jeans and boots with sharp tip. On the other part, this is the search of comfort and coziness, the, rural simplicity and natural fabric of quiet shades.

The style that is authentically cowboy style appeared in the modern actualfashion for ladies. There is not a great number of girls who really keen on looking as cowboy and who go bananas from movie westerns though there are some of them who feel comfortable in this style.

The style of the Wild West is comfortable since the image should not be totally adopted to look attractive and interesting. Every season fashion designers present apparel with some elements of the American western and a fashionmonger who wants to look unusual is enough to adopt several accessories only.

Basic elements

Basic components

Loose tailoring and simplicity is the fundamental moment of this style. The clothes is too comfortable, it does not restrict movements. The upper wear can be allowed in layers.

The natural fabric and faded shades look as the real closeness to nature, its purity and simplicity of living. Flax and cotton, leather and suede which are launched in brown, beige, green, terracotta colors are the integral part of country style. Besides, the hand-made knitting is highly reputed, as well as the laced jersey, delicate lace and the small floral pattern or the folklore prints.

The dense plaid, thick tweed and a check pattern in any interpretation regular appear in fashion collections as a vital western style element. A western-style shirt with a bright accessory is sometime enough to show the liking for the cowboy style or behavior or life manner. Denim is the perfect team-mate of the cottage coziness, especially when presented in bottom bell denim trousers, but not skinny jeans at all.


To feel like in the country style to a smaller extent, you are welcome to get some accessories without any basic element. The best accent is the fringe, which is reasonably recognized as the vivid accord from the Wild West. Fringe is used in whatever you like, though it is more preferred in leather and suede garments. On the whole, fringe is used as a decorative element for shoes, handbags, jackets and vests.

A vest with a fringe, a belt with the heavy clasp and sharp-nosed boots make the entire set of the gentleman, the country style follower, though you never abuse choosing something to adopt. In summer time boots give the floor to sandals with flat sole and trendy leather bands as with Roman-style sandals. A vest comes as the plain from leather and suede. The most trendy garment is the fur vest with the puffy furry trimming, partly or wholly.

Apart from lace and jersey rough knitting that look as the hand-made work country style favors for embroidery and patchwork. These elements make the image more comfortable, cozy and domestic neglecting the cold polished image of glamour.

Rare meetings

Today western style appears in fashion collections too seldom than hippy style, too close in some elements. These two styles seem to be similar with the tendency to natural elements, lack of much-talked about polish of the look and outer appearance on the whole. Hippy style is rather combination of dissonant elements while western requires following of particular rules and environment. Owing to the ineradicable simplicity, this style is matched with romantic or casual elements.

Many fashion designers step to the western style from time to time. This tendency was noted a couple of years ago in collections by Anna Sui, Baby Phat, Gucci, Christian Dior, Philip Lim, Alexander McQueen and so forth. In 2009 Isabel Marant launched the apparel called the Bohemian western line and soon the designers from Cacharel presented their own collection in the same style. The year 2010 shows the tendency to the western style in collections by Derek Lam. And this style never outdates. Western style is close to nature and as we tend to seek for safety, comfort and ease, we tend to use some western style elements in our clothes and life.
