Ariat Western Style – Get the Western look!

Western style is having a moment.

Rooted in the traditions of the American frontier and Cowboy culture, the Western fashion trend has captured the hearts of people worldwide. It’s a unique blend of rugged practicality and undeniable charm and is a look that is perfectly at home in the countryside or at a summer festival.

In this blog, we’ll discover how you can incorporate the iconic style into your wardrobe today with help from Ariat’s Western collection.

Denim Jeans and Western Shirts

Let’s start with the basics. Invest in key pieces like cowboy boots, denim jeans and a Western shirt. These timeless items can form the foundation of your Western wardrobe.

Don’t be afraid to mix Western pieces with your existing wardrobe. A Western shirt can pair well with jeans or layered over a simple T-shirt for a more casual look.

Cowboy Boots

Invest in a great pair of Western boots. A true cornerstone of Country and Western fashion, Cowboy Boots are instantly recognisable. Originally designed for horseback riding, they’ve become a fashion statement in their own right.

The origins of cowboy boots can be traced back to the mid-19th century when cowboys needed durable, practical footwear for working long days on horseback. Early cowboy boots were designed with functionality in mind. Features included high heels and pointed toes to secure riders in their stirrups, tall shafts to provide protection from animals and the elements and no laces to ensure that they could be easily removed. Today, contemporary designs have moved on but have kept many of the same elements so you know you’re getting a pair of shoes that looks stylish but is also highly practical and comfortable.

We love the intricate stitching and patterns on Ariat’s Western boots. Not only do the designs add flair but it also reinforces the quality leather for a lasting style that you can wear around the countryside, town, or even dancing in a field during a summer festival.

Other Western Style Tips

  1. Accessorise Thoughtfully: Add Western accessories like a Cowboy hat or a Western-style belt to elevate your outfit.
  2. Experiment with Patterns: Western fashion often incorporates bold patterns like plaid and gingham. Experiment with these patterns in your clothing choices to capture the Western aesthetic.
  3. Embrace Earthy Tones: Country and Western fashion often features earthy tones like browns, tans and deep blues. Incorporate these colours into your outfit for an authentic Western look.
