Much like last year’s military trend expanded to encompass nearly all aspects of the fashion world, from jackets to bags and beyond (much like the previous year’s moto-inspired fad), this season equestrian styles are taking over! After all, riding boots are hard to ignore these days (not like you’d ever want to ignore them), but they’re not the only equestrian-chic trend that’s all the rage these days! Riding jackets are a chic yet almost rugged way to update your classic buttoned-up blazer. It’s preppy without looking too stuffy, and sophisticated while still giving off a slightly laidback vibe. A boyish fit like this Rachel Roy ‘Flounce’ Riding Jacket puts a whole new spin on your girlish wardrobe pieces, while this tweed Gibson Riding Jacket adds some contrasting texture to balance the season’s silky-sheer blouses. And don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns – J. Crew’s Hacking Jacket incorporates playful checks in a neutral color palette that still won’t clash with bold stripes or fall-festive colorblocking!
