Equestrian Style


Equestrian chic
Equestrian fashion is so in right now. If you walk into any Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger or similar store, you'll notice their fashion is trying to imitate the clothes that English riders wear all the time. Sometimes it's more exaggerated than what real riders wear, but it gets the point across.

I love this fashion trend because I have a horse and love riding.
Now, it's cool for me to walk around looking like I'm on my way to a horseback riding lesson (maybe I am.)

To get the equestrian look, you don't need to go out and buy new clothes. I bet you already have stuff that will work.
The fashion inspiration
For your top, you can wear a polo or a subtle horse shirt. I'm wearing a Homage T-shirt I got from the New Albany Classic. I like the soft fabric and vintage design.

Pair it with tan or light brown skinny jeans. They should look like riding breeches.

Modcloth horse scarf
The outfit is completed with tall or short equestrian riding boots. These shoes are so popular right now. It's entertaining to see so many women wearing these tall riding boots and I bet these women have never been on a horse before. That's okay.
If you want to look like a real English show jumper, tie your hair into a low bun, carry peppermints or carrots in your pocket and look straight ahead like you're about to jump over a four foot jump.

You can also get the equestrian look by adding a scarf with horses to your outfit, a horseshoe piece of jewelry or even some horse tights.

There's no right or wrong way to embrace the equestrian fashion trend. Just be yourself and love horses!
