Creating cowgirl looks from non-cowgirl pieces

One of the challenges for a Fashion Editor is picking up the same pieces from a particular season that have been used countless times in countless shoots, and coming up with a new way to style them. While Western inspired shoots aren’t exactly new, Katie Mossman does a commendable job of working in unexpected pieces in ways that feel like they were somehow made to grace the body of a high-fashion cowgirl.

Like Prada’s rockabilly ’50s hotrod pieces, or Yves Saint Laurent’s plunging black jumpsuit. Just add stetson hats, embellished lariats, fringed suedes and feathery braids… Mixing in the right pieces creates the Rodeo mood David Vasiljevic’s shoot was calling for.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
