It’s no secret that western style has been on the rise in recent years. What we believe as one of the best things about western style clothing is that it is very versatile. You can dress it up or dress it down, depending on the occasion. The key is to find a balance between the two. 

If you want to add a touch of western style to your outfit to look smart and elegant but don’t want to go too far, then consider adding some tailored clothes to your collection. Tailored clothes are a great way to add a touch of western style to your tailored outfit without going overboard.

“Our only advice is to choose the right piece to start whilst showing off your love to western style in the smart elegant way”

The Key Pieces to bring a Touch of Modern Tailoring into your Western Style


Although western style can never be completed without denim and leather, in this case with a touch of tailored blazer can go along the way to look western style in an elegant way. Perfect add on for your evening out around the city night life, and looks smart with everything from jeans to trousers whether you want to go full western look or modernized western style.There are many different styles of blazers, from formal to more casual options. When choosing a blazer, it's important to keep in mind the overall look you're trying to achieve. We would recommend picking staple colors like in black, navy or brown to start with classic plain or pinstripe fabric options (wool or cotton)  with single or double breasted preferably double breasted blazer, which will go all the way to your western inspired outfit yet stylish. 


To complete this look, the same rule applies while choosing the pants option as classic western styling. First choice can be a pair of cowboy fit jeans preferably from brands like Wrangler or Levis, true Americana denim pioneers, there is no doubt about pairing these denims with the rest of the tailored blazers will still provide you a classic yet modern western look. Next option is a pair of tailored trousers to further achieve your classy and  effortless modern western look. We would always recommend to choose a classic color option of black, gray or chocolate brown for a start with either plain or pinstripe, with a higher waist and regular/straight leg fitting to give the unique vibe of styling in western.


As always, boots have been the wardrobe essential for western wear which could never be denied. There are many different styles of western inspired boots, from cowboy boots to more modern, stylish options. When choosing a pair of boots, it's important to consider the cut of your jeans and the style of your blazer. So, we would recommend not only cowboy boots, also Zipped up or Chelsea Boots with slightly higher heels play an essential role to complete your smart modern western wear aesthetic. Pairing these with the tailored pieces with denim is a great way to add smart casual flair to compliment your western style look for a great evening out. Another great option for this outfit is a pair of loafers to keep it extra special for the evening, the best way to start with is a pair of leather or suede penny loafers, we love a color contrasted option for a slightly modern yet smart casual look. 


A modern way of dressing the tailored style is not about wearing a shirt under your blazer, which we think is a bit outdated unless you are going to certain types of events as well as modern western wear doesn’t have to be all about boots, denim and hats. There are other options in wearing graphic tee or comfort pieces like Hoodies, of course in western inspired graphics. The graphic tee features a western inspired print with a solid colorway of black or white can be worn underneath of your blazer, which helps establish your outfit in its casual yet elegant look overall to fit right in with the rest of your modern western style. Moreover, graphic hoodies can be layered underneath your blazers for colder days for extra comfort, functional yet stylish. 


The rule of pairing accessories remains unchanged like the rest of the western outfit inspirations. Always keep an eye out for the staple pieces like western inspired classic leather belts and buckles, cotton bandanas, truck caps and leather key clips by playing the color contrasts like flashing red bandana by your pocket for a dark color outfit such as with black blazers and denim. As always, choosing the right accessories will allow you to achieve your desired western style looks in many ways.
