The French have a unique ability to breathe new life into Americana western wear. Perhaps it's their vantage point from across the Atlantic that gives an objective point-of-view on our history or maybe it's just because they're French. Either way, Chloé, Isabel Marant and Nina Ricci are leading the way on the most stylish of westward fronts. But, of course, no one does true western wear better than the Americans themselves. You'll find plenty of home-grown fashion from Ralph Lauren, Frye and the GAP that'll easily do the trick.
Coachella is a well-timed excuse to give this trend a try with rugged leather boots, breezy linen tops and plenty of hats. City-dwellers and those averse to all things music festival should feel free to embrace a western moment in the urban jungle. A swingy, handkerchief-hem dress or a pair of turquoise chandelier earrings work in any setting from Paris to Montana.
