Fall Fashion Turns Southwestern Chic

This Wednesday evening, country stars across the United States will head to Nashville for the 44th annual CMA Awards. Br
ad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will be hosting it again this year, and I can’t wait to see the other country celebrities that this star-studded evening will bring out! Thinking about the CMA Awards inspired me to talk about the current western trend that has women turning to cowgirl inspired leather riding boots and Native American infused cardigans and sweaters to keep warm in the chilly weather. I love the southwestern look that many celebrities have been sporting, like Camila Belle's (right) tan fringed skirt and over-sized belt and country cutie Miley Cyrus' funky cowboy boots, daisy dukes and southwestern style jewelry.

As Miley shows in the above picture, turquoise is the perfect stone to compliment the southwestern look, and here at Kendra Scott, we carry several different styles of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings in this bright and beautiful gem. Our southwestern-inspired Cayenne pieces, which include a mix of turquoise and tiger’s eye, look amazing with this trend. All of my Cayenne pieces are on sale in my Daily Deals for this week, so you can get the western look for less!

Brown, worn-in cowboy boots and riding boots are a staple for your fall wardrobe. Here, Joy Bryant completes the urban cowgirl look from top to bottom in her cowboy boots, floral dress, cardigan and leather belt. To get some great cowgirl boots at an even better price, check out the Matisse Georgia Boots from DSW. If riding boots like Alyson Hannigan’s are more your style, look at these Halogen Saffron Tall Riding Boots from Nordstrom.

There are a couple of ways to wear the western look from airy, feminine flo
ral dresses to Native American inspired sweaters and tunics. Lauren Conrad looks great in a belted floral dress with a matching leather bag and heels. Steal her look with this Charlotte Ronson Floral Pleated Ruffle Dress and brown braided Metallic Macrame Belt from Urban Outfitters, perfect for fall with its long sleeves. Ashley Tisdale rocks the western look with her Navajo inspired cardigan, complete with turquoise jewelry and brown boots. This Lucky Brand Woodland Fair Isle Cardigan Wrap would keep you warm and cozy and would look great paired with jeans and some riding boots.

I love Urban Outfitter's Pendleton Buckle Bag, complete with traditional Native American prints and a western buckle. Tory Burch’s Kara Tunic also incorporates American Indian prints with turquoise accents that would look great with black leggings and brown cowboy or riding boots.

Put your own twist on the southwestern look and be sure to tune into the CMA Awards on ABC this Wednesday night at 8/7 central where you can see country stars like Female Vocalist of the Year Nominee Taylor Swift and Grammy Award winner turned country artist Gwyneth Paltrow take the stage to perform! And if you are still surprised about Gwyneth's singing talent like me, check out her video of "Country Strong" on YouTube (she has a beautiful voice!).
