When you first read the title of this post, you probably thought that I would be decked out in cowboy boots and a hat. While there is nothing wrong with the traditional western themed outfit, the 2016 version consists of bold accessories. Who would have thought that big buckle belts and neck scarves would be the next big things?! Hear me out.
I have been admiring this trend for the last couple of months but I honestly didn’t think that I could get away with it. Turns out you don’t have to be going to the rodeo to wear such items! If you’re active on Instagram, then you’ve noticed your favorite fashionistas styling these pieces all very differently. As far as a necktie, as long as you are wearing an off the shoulder shirt, it’ll work. The belt on the other hand will look less cowgirl and more chic with a LBD or a little black jumpsuit. You be the judge.
I took the chic route and styled my neck scarf and belt with a black cutout jumpsuit from Asos. This floor length playsuit happens to be the same fit and style as the neon jumpsuit so many of you loved a couple of months back. I am not sure that a more versatile item exists for only $42! I accented the waistline with a big buckle belt and took advantage of the neckline with a black and white necktie. For a pop of color, I painted my lips red and carried a striped handbag. Now are you ready to give a western themed outfit a try?!
