Couture Cowboy Boots and Wild West Headgear

 - Apr 20, 2012
Wild western-themed editorials are commonplace in the realm of fashion. Magazine spreads and upscale photoshoots have taken place in a slew of desert settings, capturing billowing heaps of sand and abandoned cacti. And despite the desert heat, the old school theme has yet to dry up. These badass western looks showcase inventive ways to sport the style, spurring on a new breed of chic cowboys and cowgirls, respectively.

Infamous haute couture designers love the rugged theme tied to the wrangler approach. The fabrics chosen mostly feature suede and leather, making them slightly less approachable for vegan or animal-loving crowds. Bronco-themed films like 'Brokeback Mountain' have furthered the western cult, according it with a new form of pop cultural notoriety.
