Trend Alert: Midnight Cowgirl
Spring/summer looks set to be quite a season in trends, with a plethora of exciting styles to experiment with. One of the most exciting or me, I must admit, is channeling your inner cowgirl.
The trend is more Clint Eastwood than Sheriff Woody (your Cath Kidston cowboy print and pristine Michael Kors Saddle Bag won't quite cut it here!), so keep an eye out for distressed leather, vintage western-style motif and a tough, rugged feel.
Stitching in perfectly with the laid-back festival vibe, dramatic fringed accessories and equestrian influences make this trend truly wearable with your fail-safe seasonal items - I'm thinking denim shorts and gladiator flats, (natch!) - but beautifully updated for 2013.
Angel Jackson's 'Raw Hide' collection pretty much hits the nail on the head for this trend. With intricate stitching detail and quilted textured leathers, head on over to angeljackson.com for luxe cowboy heaven.
We couldn't discuss a trend consisting of distressed leather, tassels and western-style metal details and not instantly think of All Saints. They've been pretty much been running this trend since the dawn of time, so it's time to dig out all your old All Saints cuffs, belts and fringed satchels. If you've got either their Chepi or Calamity satchels, you're laughing. If not, it's time to scour eBay for one.
Accessories are key when it comes to this look, and again, All Saints is your friend.
The Jackson Belt is made from animal print raw hide; what more could you want to channel The Good, The Bad and the Ugly?
Team this handbag trend with cowboy boots; a must!
