Country music festival season is officially here! Western wear is popping up all over the fashion world these days, from designer runways to country stars' onstage outfits. This new widespread interest in western-style apparel means there are plenty of options to create your own unique festival look this season. Let's take a look at the fashion trends that you need to know about this summer.
Mixing bold colors and patterns is a huge trend for the summer. Stay cool with these comfy jean shorts paired with this adorable buffalo tank. If you need the perfect statement piece, go bold with leopard print! Try out these suede print slides or kick things up with Ariat's Darlin Boot, which also comes in two trendy shades of solid brown.
Two big trends you'll see in denim this year are higher waistlines and fun detailing. This pair features beautiful braided embroidery on the pockets. Pair them with this sweet lacy top, which is effortlessly stylish and lightweight for those hot summer days. Nothing completes an outfit like a great pair of cowboy boots. Distressed, lived-in boots like Ariat's Heritage R Toe Western Boot are all the rage right now.
Vintage-inspired patterns are all the rage this year. The paisley prints in this fun tee and comfy flats fit perfectly with light-wash denim. If you want to make it look a little dressier, simply swap out your footwear! Fringe booties are a huge trend this year and make any outfit look polished and full of personality.
