Fringe flair fashion this fall WOS Wrestling TV star SoCal Val talks about the trend that has followed her across the pond from the US to MK... Western flair

ell, you can take the girl out of America, but you can't take America out of the girl! And lucky for me this new season’s look is one that comes naturally. ‘Western flair’ has made its way across the pond and into our wardrobes. But before you lasso into this trend, a word of caution if you please! Take care when putting your outfit together. The goal is to take only 1 or 2 elements and not pile so much on that you're in danger of looking like a cowgirl! For today's ensemble I chose a structured denim dress from the Amazon Fashion ‘FIND’ brand as my base...then added some pieces of interest to shake things up. These brown fringe heels and complementing handbag

convey the Western vibe perfectly. Plus the movement of fringe is always a LOT of fun to wear and provides a bit of whimsy! Adding a classic chain print scarf in the same colour family was my final touch. The colour palette of denim and brown is not only flattering, it's a great example of all-American style. Comfortable but still polished. What I challenge you to do this Autumn is to try this trend in your own signature way. Take inspiration from designer collections and find more affordable versions on the high street. For example, on the runways this season the classic cowboy shirt was reimagined in bright satin by Calvin Klein. At Alberta Ferretti we saw chunky brass cowboy buckles on belts, bags and more. As with all trends, this look

has filtered out to stores at much more pleasing price points. So saddle up! A new fashion frontier awaits!
