YES YOU CAN: Channel cowgirl chic

YOU’s fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how to pull off Western, cowgirl style this season.

There’s a lot of love for Western style this season. Whether you favour the striking cactus prints found adorning denim, shirts and pretty prairie-style dresses, or prefer a little fringeing on a shacket, just add cowboy boots for the finishing touch. The shorter ankle styles are the modern go-tos, but if you’re feeling brave, check out the authentic longer designs – they look great with summer dresses.

Double up on fringeing: Team boots with a similar-toned jacket and keep everything else simple
