Thanks to Tik Tok, we have a fashion trend that is ready for its summer debut. The coastal cowgirl trend is a western twist on the popular coastal grandma trend. If you loved the beachy look of the coastal grandma attire, then this trend will be perfect for your summer wardrobe. Our team at Thrift World is here to help you get inspiration for what to wear from new fashion trends!
What is the coastal cowgirl trend?
The coastal grandma trend was iconic for cardigans, linen button-ups, straw bucket hats, straight-cut pants, linen pants and sweater vests. Picture Diane Keaton in any of her iconic outfits. The coastal cowgirl trend embodies a beachy look with a touch of western flare. Light and flowy clothing is ideal to keep cool on hot summer days and it goes perfectly with iconic western wear like cowgirl hats and boots. To embrace this trend, don’t be afraid to mix different textures! Leather, denim, linen and crochet are popular when building the perfect coastal cowgirl outfit. This trend isn’t just great for everyday summer outfits but also for the festival season!
Neutrals are key to pulling off this trend! Cream, white and ivory clothing pieces are part of the coastal aesthetic of this trend. Light colors help break up the harshness of the leather cowgirl boots and hats. Accessories are also just as important! In true summer fashion, shell bracelets and necklaces are a must, as well as pearl earrings and beaded necklaces.
