TREND: The Modern Cowgirl

The month of September represents the start and end of New York’s Fashion Week. The best of the best get the opportunity for their designs to strut down the runway and from the looks of it I already want it to be spring. Even though the upcoming trends and fashion for Spring 2011 were premiering on the catwalks, we need to be reminded that it still is fall and it will be a few months before the birds will start chirping again. After you have read all of the reviews and picked out your favorite trends, being able to transition them into your everyday wardrobe is key.

It seems as though this Fashionista did just that. Her outfit seems very reminiscent of Ralph Lauren's Collection that premiered on Thursday of Fashion Week. This Fashionista left me with the inspiration to create a new statement piece in my wardrobe from her cowboy boots. We normally see cowboy boots with floral frocks, jean shorts, flannels, and a “Yee-haw.” However, this Fashionista gave her boots a modern twist. By pairing the boots with an edgy stripped skirt and a knit tank, the outfit represented a mixture of a Cowgirl and Rocker Chic. These boots are different than the traditional tall boots because they are part of the “bootie” or ankle boot trend that is huge for fall right now. Take some time to look through your closet for that old set of cowboy boots and pair it with something unexpected for a new twist of the modern cowgirl.
