We’re in a post-Cowboy Carter world — and all trends are pointing toward country. While you might think that dressing in your best Western wear entails a 10-gallon hat or bootcut jeans, there’s an easier (and dare we say more stylish) approach to rocking the style: pony hair.

Despite the name, pony hair is not made of ponies. "It is cow or goat hide, shaved to simulate the look of the hair on the hide of a horse," says shoe designer Stuart Weitzman, who often gravitates toward the texture in his collections. The textured leather is animalistic yet timeless — and it’s been embraced by everyone from Dries Van Noten to Dr. Martens to Margot Robbie on the red carpet.

Like all leather products, pony-hair items can be considered investment pieces that will stay in style no matter the trend cycle. Below, see NYLON’s favorite pony-hair picks, from of-the-moment cow prints to elevated closet staples.
