GO Wild West this summer as the prairies come to the High Street.
You don’t want to look like you’re in a cowboy fancy dress costume, so opt for puffed sleeves, prim frills and lace-up fastenings.
Add ladylike handbags and toughen up the Southern belle look with chunky belts and boots.
Here, fashion editor GABRIELE DIRVANAUSKAS shows you how Western fashion has won this season.
Gabriele says: “Denim with lace-up detail is big this summer, and frayed hems give the Wild West a nod.”
Gabriele says: “Push the boat out with a great straw hat.
“A sheer black blouse will also prevent a Waltons look.”
Gabriele says: “The white lace dress is everywhere this summer.
“Give it an edge with modern jewellery to stop it looking too girly.”
Gabriele says: “We love this top. The dusty pink colour and puffed sleeves give it a vintage lace effect.”
Gabriele says: “Get on board the trend with a broderie lace shirt.
“Look out for frill details on the neck and shoulders.”
Gabriele says: “Cut-out details give this polka-dot shirt a modern spin.
“Make a statement with a chunky belt.”
Gabriele says: “Look out for corset-like details that give a nod to the era and will cinch in your waist.”[“Source-thesun.”]
