Equestrian Fashion for 2013

androgynoriginal

Equestrian fashion has been and will continue to be a huge trend for in coming months thanks to its adaptable style and range of options available whatever the weather.

The popularity of equestrian style is partly thanks to the surprise popularity of the sport at the 2012 Olympic Games. While sports like football hog the limelight most of the time, equestrian took centre stage and shone brightly.

Zara Phillips, royalty in more than one way, is seen as a sporting hero since her run in the Olympic Games, and is now turning into a figurehead for true equestrian style.

Let’s take a look at a couple of styles that everyone can enjoy:

Androgyny

Androgynous Style

Androgynous style is a huge trend within itself this season, and works well combined with equestrian style. This Mango Kate Military Blazer is a sleek and simple jacket that can be worn casually or dressed up, with a clean cut design and gold detailing making it a little more than reminiscent of those classic riding jackets.

Equestrian Clearance Ariat York Long Leather Riding Boots are great for capturing the ‘just walked out of a field after a morning of riding’ look. They’re more up market than wellingtons and are perfect for wearing this trend in the chillier seasons.

Finally, add this ASOS Horse Print Scarf to the ensemble for a relaxed and casual vibe. The colour is a perfect splash of life to the outfit, and the repetitive horse print will show the world your love of horses!

Summer Lovin’

Country Girl

To wear the trend in the warmer climates, start with this Topshop Hawaiian Boat Print Dress. The print itself is a love letter to vintage trends, while the cut is simple yet modern meaning you’ll look completely up-to-date.

These Ariat Shada Western Boots are a great way to pay tribute to the cowboys and cowgirls who rocked equestrian fashion before it was even cool! They are designed to last and can work with a whole range of looks, and add a masculine edge to an otherwise feminine outfit.

And finally, this ASOS Horse Detail Purse is a great subtle way to show off your adoration of all thing horse. It looks a lot more expensive than it actually is from the likes of equestrian clearance, and adds a subtle glamour to the outfit.
