The dog days of summer are over. Autumn’s beautiful warm shades of red and orange have arrived, and the days are as lovely as days can be.
For those of us in the arena, whether shoring up skills and mental preparation for the last of the year’s rodeos, or schooling for the fall futurities, it’s time of hope, hard riding and preparation.
And, a time to update our looks for another round of autumn events. Here’s five trends guaranteed to set your style into this season.
Denim is always in, with shirts, jeans and outerwear, it’s the traditional western look, but one thats easy to update every year. Did you know Cody & Sioux now has Kimes Ranch jeans?! We’re championing this simple and uncomplicated look into the fall show arenas. Gorgeous, like this mid-rise, fitted thigh, boot cut style. Made with only the best denim, this is a quality jean. With a proper fitted upper thigh and knee, the jean accentuates the leg and the boot opening, modest yet practical, perfect for over the boot or tucked in. Find all three styles here.
Desert themes like this cute cactus and cow skull Michael Ryan shirt are a continuing theme into the autumn. Pair it with a vintage belt and jeans. We love everything about this Kimes Ranch jean, comfortable, mid rise, slimming lines, and a perfect fit. It all lives within Betty 17. Kimes used a tri-blend technology (93% cotton, 6% polyester, 1% elastine) to hold its shape and improve wearability. A hand sand and rinse wash gives a lighter vibe, making this a great addition to your look.
Another element of western wear, the traditional yoke is getting some beautiful treatment this fall, with warm color stitching and frays.
We’re happy that pretty embroidery is carrying on this fall, and loving all the embroidered tops and jackets we’re bringing into the store.
Finally, this season we are loving the untucked trend at rodeos and western horse competitions, and this shirt is perfect for that! Such a flattering fit on any body type with the a small slit at the back, wear it to the rodeo and over a tee or tank later for a night in town.
For guys, the classic Ryan Michael shirts are a win-win deal, luxury western apparel with a relevant twist – and so wearable in all venues like this Tucson Jacquard shirt jacket, just the right weight and look for cooler fall days.
So there you have it – our take on the five trends of fall: denim, traditional yokes, desert themes, pretty embroidery and untucked shirts!
You can find all of these pieces in our 2,500 sq ft. Modern West store in historic Inglewood, Calgary, or in online store (for your convenience, we’ve included links to each item in the captions above), but we suggest if you find something you love, don’t delay, these types of pieces don’t tend to stay around long.
