How to Wear Equestrian Inspired Style for Fall
You don’t have to be a professional horseback rider to love the deliciously sassy equestrian looks. Every stylish diva can appreciate the lush shearling and the preppy tweed, which are all must haves for this season. Here are some helpful tidbits to get your wardrobe “rider” ready.
We have seen the skirt really evolve this season, and right now we are all about the full swaying, sexy looking skirt. For an easy up to date style that will not break the bank but get you looking season ready, wrap up in a fitted turtleneck sweater along with a full knee length skirt, opaque tights and some platform loafers. Add a belt for some added definition and some flat boots to make the outfit a bit more casual. This look is chic, preppy and ideal for a woman who wants to add an equestrian style to their wardrobe but to do it in a smaller scale.
Too Cool For School
Want an easy way to look really cool in your casual duds? Simple. All you need to do is add a poncho or a chunky sweater into your wardrobe. Not only is this really stylish, but will also keep you warm and snugly as the winter season comes along. A super cute style is wearing a plaid poncho, leggings and tall boots. Its so easy, yet so incredibly chic.
Right in Between
For all the fashionable women out there who are looking for a sexy style that is dressy but not over the top, here it is. Wear a corduroy blazer, a plaid short dress and boots. Presto! You have an amazing equestrian style that can be worn somewhere special or just when you are heading downtown for your cup of coffee. Stick with a pair of flat boots to compliment this outfit appropriately and add a printed scarf and a leather handbag for the finishing touch.
The Must-have Accessories
Let’s face it, our wardrobe is really all about the accessories, and when you want to pull off the cool equestrian style, there are certain items you need to have. Wear a pair of riding boots to stay warm and forever stylish, while keeping your fingers toasty in a pair of leather gloves. A furry bag and a leather belt are also ideal and perfect to mix and match with many other looks.
Giddy up ladies on a ride so fashionable, you may never look at your favorite pair of skinny jeans again.
