Westworld may be on hiatus until the series returns to HBO in (ugh) 2018, but that doesn’t mean we have to wait until then to channel our inner cowgirl.
The spring 2017 runways proved that the cowgirl is about to have a major fashion moment. “Western-inspired” was one of the biggest trends of NYFW, with labels like Coach, Anna Sui, and Rodarte jumping on board. That said, everything from John Wayne-inspired button-downs to saloon girl ruffles will soon be hitting the street style circuits.
However, cowboy-influenced anything has a tendency to look costumey. So why not reinterpret the trend subtly with a modern, urban twist? The runways aren’t necessarily meant to be taken literally, anyway, and it’s totally possible to give the Wild Wild West an update, making it suitable for the streets of Manhattan.
