Whats trending right now in the rodeo world for fashion? Lets get to it!
Chokers – Yes, I mean the chokers we wore in the 90’s. They are back! If you don’t want to buy a typical choker, girls are also seen wearing a longer bolo tie style with a nice pendant, wrapping it around their neck once or twice.
Turquoise – This is timeless in my eyes. Turquoise jewelry will always make a great statement piece, and if its vintage it likely has a story behind it. Rings, Cuffs, Necklaces and earrings; its everywhere and should be all over you!
Dusters – Dusters are usually long sleeve and longer in length, just “dusting” the ground. Often we see floral patterns, but anything goes! A duster is generally made from a light flowy fabric. They look great paired with distressed skinny jeans and heels!
Graphic Tees – Whether they have witty words written on them, an band name, or destination, they are great to pair up with accessories, skirts, jeans etc. Easy to dress up or down!
Fringe – This trend hasn’t gone away yet. Fringe EVERYTHING. Again, find something you like and just wear it! If it catches your eye, but you have that little voice in the back of your head telling you no, dont listen to it! Just do it!
Booties– Booties, booties, booties, booties rockin’ everywhere… (did you sing that in your head?) Currently suede booties of any color are seen everywhere. I prefer neutral tones rather than a super bright color, but hey,you do you! Dancing in booties with a little wedge or thicker heel gives you the ability to dance the night away! I am also seeing a lot of the lace up gladiator sandal styles, as well as thicker strappy heels with thick cork or wooden heel and platform.
Hair Trends – Half Buns. No, this is not a man bun! Instead of pinning half your hair up, put half up in a higher bun, with loose waves or straight hair left down. Just try it, you may really like it!
Everyone loved a long mane, but many ladies have chopped their locks for shoulder length easy-to-manage locks! If you still have luscious long hair, I am jealous, as mine does not grow past my shoulders, ever!
Casual loose waves, and random braids in your hair are also showing up all over.
Hats – There are many different styles and brands of hats trending at the moment. My fave brands right now are Greeley Hat Works, War Bonnet Hat Works, Charlie One Horse & Brixton! Palm Leaf hats, and nice felt hats aren’t just for the arena! The best part is they look great with almost any outfit, and you save yourself time by not having to wash, dry and style!
Serape – Serape blankets, shawls and wraps were originally brightly colored wool blankets which both men and women wore in Mexico. This day and age, you see the serape color pattern on every type of material, in many forms. Dresses, Western Shirts, T Shirts, Skirts, Dresses etc. There are many different color combos, find one you like, on an article you want, and wear it!
Wrangler – It’s not throwback Thursday I swear, but fashion always seems to come back, just in a new and improved way. Wrangler currently has a few shirts, crop tops, and jeans being sold in Urban Outfitters!
Squash Blossom Necklaces – These are still a hot item. There are many versions available that won’t make you break the bank! Always check out Etsy, and Facebook groups like The Bleacher Babe to see if anyone has one for sale.
Statement Purses & Clutches – If you are handy with leather, make yourself a dang clutch with your own personal flair! If you’re like me, and don’t know where to even start when it comes to leatherwork, have a look around and see what you can find. Clutches and purses that are hand tooled, have fringe, or are just different are seen everywhere. If you see something you love, BUY IT!
Always keep in mind that everyone is different. If you dislike the 70’s inspired boheim hippy look, then don’t dress that way. This is simply what I see and like that is currently trending in the world of fashion. Whatever you decide, the best accessory you can wear is a smile on your face, beaming confidence and happiness!
– lots of Love & Lipstick
