“ Yes, it is possible to wear western style when you live in the city. Western wear can definitely be worn in the city - you just have to know how to do it. Let us show you and give you some suggestions on how to dress up western clothes into your daily urban life.” 

We believe that western style is all about effortless styling where it is possible to wear everywhere. Once you've gotten in the groove and have your outfits figured out, you will start appreciating western wear and believe in what they could make you cool. It may be as simple as wearing cowboy boots instead of traditional chelsea boots or having a nice belt that doesn't need replacing. This is why living in the city often makes it easier to put on the western wear than when you live far away from a frontier with wide open plains to look over. Western wear is a style that has been around for years and is still going strong. 

“ When you're looking for a modern look that's still full of western flair, there's no better way to start with the Classic Western Wear Outfit

The Key Pieces for a Classic Western Outfit


Western style is all about wearing boots, denim and leather or suede. The most statement way of bringing the western trend into your wardrobe is through the jacket. Whether it's a denim jacket or leather or suede blouson, these fabrics will make you look like a true cowboy. They are the perfect layers for fall and winter, and look great with everything from jeans to trousers. The denim jacket is an easy way to get the western vibe without going overboard on pattern or color, while the suede or leather jacket adds just enough texture to make this outfit stand out, we truly believe  it combines both traditional western wear and modern streetwear which will make you look cooler than others. 


Next stop is to find a perfect pair to complement the jacket. We are huge fan of the Wrangler cowboy fit jeans, which have been a tried-and-true wardrobe staple for all cowboys across the country. We think they are the coolest denim jeans of the century, remarkably providing a timeless look that will never go out of style or date itself. So, why not make it the staple piece for the city too. When it comes down to modern western styling, you do not necessarily need to wear only jeans, instead a pair of tailored trousers will allow you to achieve the effortless modern western look. We would recommend choosing a classic colorway of black, gray or chocolate brown to start, with a slightly higher waist with straight leg fitting to give you extra edges. 


Boots are the staple of western wear which could never be denied. First off, the cowboy boot is one of the most iconic pieces of Western Americana, and recently, it's seen a huge resurgence in popularity over the past few years and all of us are rocking them over with our desired pieces. Truth to be told, they’re just not practical in the 21st century. 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 modern western wear aesthetic. Paring these with denim and suede is a great way to add more casual flair to your look for the city. They will give off an air of luxury and sophistication that makes your modern western wear feel extra-special. 


Urban western wear doesn’t have to be all about boots, denim and hats. A modern nod to the style can come in the form of western inspired graphic print tee. The graphic tee features a western theme on top of a solid color base like black or brown, which helps ground the outfit in its own look while still letting it fit right in with the rest of your look. Whilst throwing on your Western graphic tee under your chosen jacket, you would want to make sure it's not too big or too small, so it fits snugly against your body without being constricting. 


By Accessories, we do not mean it like you would have to put on cowboy hats every time you go out, although we would strongly recommend investing in a classic leather belt with a fairly basic belt buckle featuring western inspired detailing. Moreover, try adding some other staple accessories like cotton bandana, trucker cap or even a leather key clips by playing on the color contrasts like a red patterned bandana will provide a flash of color amid on darker outfit whilst blue trucker cap would work well against lighter options
