Rodeo Houston time has come to our fair city once again. Aside from the rides, concerts and carnival eats, all I hear people buzzing about is the fashion -- apparently even cowboys care about color matching and proportions. Because western wear is in this year, it won't be hard to find a few appropriate pieces in your favorite boutique or vintage store. Thanks to my good ol' buddy Instagram, I have found a handful of Rodeo looks that bring in the studs and spurs but stay far away from costume-y. You, too, can look at home on the range and normal walking down Westheimer in these ensembles.
New Play on the Prairie Skirt Look for the prairie skirt silhouette but in different prints and bold color.
Southwest Scarf You know those beautiful serape blankets? What about a serape scarf? YES!
Paisley Cool Full disclosure: I hate paisley. Full full disclosure: I love this dress.
Let the Turquoise Flow Free If you have any chunky turquoise tucked away in your closet, now is the time to wear it proud.
Shimmer Fringe If you want to get fancy, look for fringe in metallic. I want this today!
TexMex Bright Add a little pizzazz to your jeans and T with a bright necklace with a Texas-meets-Mexico vibe.
Not So Lumberjack Plaid Make plaid modern by pairing with heels, a statement necklace and a crisp clutch.
