Denim Revisits Its Western Roots for Fall ’18

Denim will be heading West for Fall ’18.

The influence of Calvin Klein by Raf Simon’s Fall ’17 ode to Americana lingers this fall with designer labels like Coach and Versace embracing Western and prairie fashion.

Dark rinse denim serves as the foundation for the down-home looks. Classic Trucker jackets are layered over vintage-feeling Henleys and postcard print blouses. Jean jackets are also styled under timeless suede and leather jackets in rich shades of caramel.

Snap front denim shirts with front and back yoke serves as a layering piece under blanket coats. Denim blouses for women are takes on a modern prairie girl look with ruffled collars and sleeves.

The Western look comes to life through handiwork like embroidery and whipstitch details. The trend takes a more literal turn with the addition of the bolo tie, silk kerchiefs and belt buckles with hand tooling and sterling silver and turquoise jewelry.

And leave it to Versace to vamp up the look with black leather, studded fringe and skinny black jeans.
