Refinery29 Pipeline, Yehaw! Wild West Fashion Gets Back in the Saddle.

Posted in Uncategorized by The Ruffian on February 15, 2009


What is it with cowboy boots? Love ’em or hate ’em, they seem to be as cyclical in fashion as flares and fedoras, and inspire just as much controversy. But along with the recent return of our favorite shit-kicking boot (we’re fans), comes other of-the-moment cowboy-chic extras—spring/summer pieces that give a classic western vibe a more modern interpretation. Right now, we’re loving A.P.C’s timeless suede mid-calf boots (we would wear these with anything!), Cheap Monday’s basic acid-wash jeans, any of Current Elliot’s pretty little chambray dresses, and, of course, Topshop’s fringe vest, all pieces that you can easily mix in with your best basics to great effect when that lonesome Big Sky feeling starts to sneak up on you.
