These days, the Western look is all the rage. From cowboy boots to fringe and denims of all varieties, the Western trend is perfect for anyone who wants to look casual yet chic. If you’re interested in getting on trend, but unsure how to get started, host Melanie Sutrathada (@melaniesutra) is here to help. She’ll show you some of the most on-trend staple items to create your Western look and give you tips on how to style them, to boot. 

When it comes to creating your Western look, the best place to start is with a high quality pair of cowboy boots. For a perfect classic Western look, Tecovas cowboy boots are a great choice because they’re versatile, comfortable, and easy to style.

Next up, Melanie shows how to choose the perfect piece of headgear. You can’t go wrong with a Western-style cowboy hat, especially if it’s made with high quality materials. That’s why Melanie chose a Western-style cowboy hat from Serratelli. “It has this awesome upturned brim,” Melanie says, showing off the hat. “I think it just looks and feels so luxe.”

Once you have your head and feet styled, it’s time to tackle everything in between! Melanie is a big fan of all things fringe, and recommends a fringed suede jacket from Wrangler. “If you’re looking to style the Western trend for the first time and you’re not really sure where to begin, I cannot recommend a suede jacket enough,” Melanie says, showing off the suede jacket and its luxurious fringe. “Put this on and you’ll be cozy and warm, and you’re also going to be so stylish.”

Finally, it’s time to accessorize! Melanie shows off two bags that are perfect for completing the Western look. The first is a smaller handbag with geometric print made by Maje, while the second is a larger tote that is ideal for days when you have more to carry. Both bags come with plenty of decorative leather fringe. “It has this natural wear to it that is only going to get better with age,” Melanie says of the second bag. “This is one of the pieces that you’ll pass down time and time again.”

Styling the Western look is surprisingly easy. As Melanie shows, it’s all about choosing a few versatile high quality pieces. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a bit of fringe!
