Did you happen to catch the first part of this series and are begging for more ways to pull of the "office meets western" look? You're in luck! We are making this a two part series. Last week, we dove into five classic wild rags to incorporate into your professional attire (read that blog here). This week, we are showcasing 5 styles to add to your wardrobe if you want to make a bold statement, just a little western and a lot classy.
The key to a happy "work wardrobe" is a balance between personal style and dress code requirements (this is probably the reason blazers come in 60 different colors). Just a small uphill battle right? Shaley Ham from West Desperado makes it look effortless (she holds our western office wear goals). Accessories like wild rags is a great way to make your personality shine if you want to rise above the pantsuit crowd. Check out these 5 Fringe Scarves recommendations for a crossover western-professional look.
This is it! Every element of western culture all in one scarf! Firstly, it is a perfect pairing for your existing wardrobe because its primary colors are brown and black. It goes with virtually everything! What a relief to find a piece you can add in that doesn't require a new top or jacket to accompany it. But for the Western Yoke, it's the details that make this scarf an easy win. Boot stitching, yoke border, bucking horse and starburst in the center, and colorful pops of retro boot details. This scarf can be a subtle compliment or the showstopper to your outfit.
The Topsy is a fun way to add color into an otherwise muted outfit. Inspired by a Mexican saddle blanket Jodi's mom brought home from a trip to Mexico in the 1950's, the Topsy will make you feel like you are in the saddle or part of a Ralph Lauren excursion instead of at your desk. Our favorite details are the silver saddle conchos along the border and the tapestry feel to the Aztec print. This one classes up any outfit!
Who doesn't like turquoise? Especially vintage Pawn jewelry! If you wear the Squash Blossomed to work, you will be borrowing this one to your coworkers without a doubt! What's so great about this scarf is the array of silver and turquoise pieces beyond the squash blossom centerpieces. It makes a stunning replacement to traditional jewelry. This scarf is a showstopper no matter how you style it.
This bandanna print is a classic cowboy look all of your non western coworkers will immediately recognize. But, the sheen of the silk used and the elegance of the scroll detailing adds sophistication to any outfit it accompanies. Our favorite way to showcase the Bandito is in a monochromatic look.
Cowboy up is just plain fun! The showstopper center design reminds us of the famous Pendleton Round Up. But, when tied around your neck, the vibrant colors really stand out. With rich colors like mustard, red, tan, this scarf is a must have for fall layering.
There are some things in life that are too good to just have one of. That's how we feel about conchos. Is there anything better than finding one of these hidden gems at an antique store or pawn shop? On your belt, your saddle, or your new silk wildrag, conchos are a classic and a must as part of your wardrobe. If you are looking for your next big concho find, look no further. This is the guide for you.

Speaking of a "big concho" find, we have two lines inspired by the antique conchos collected by the Fringe Scarves boss woman, Jodi. Our Big Concho and Baby Concho lines bring drama to your neckline. Thanks to the antique detailing and turquoise stones featured in the conchos incorporated into these wildrags. Each design comes in three color ways, though it will be hard to pick just one. Also new to the collection in the Baby Concho Fringe Wrap, perfect for a summer headband, face mask, or hat band!
The Baby Concho Fringe Wrap is the newest style, featuring the Baby Concho design in a jersey knit wrap with unlimited uses.
So many of our scarf designs incorporate conchos on the border and corners of the scarf.
At first sight, the Cowboy Up looks like a Pendleton Round Up inspired bucking horse wild rag. But, when tied, the rich fall colors and silver conchos bring just the right amount of detail for a second look.
Turquoise jewelry and silver conchos were made to be worn together, which is exactly how we feel every time we wear the Kingman Turquoise.
The Topsy design was inspired by a navajo saddle blanket which is why the saddle concho border pairs with it perfectly.
The green backdrop design of the Verde scarf looks like what a jeweler might draw on paper before creating their latest concho. Pair that with the polished silver concho border, this is a must have for your wardrobe.
If you are looking for a concho inspired wild rag with a unique flare, the Navy Concho, Denim Pawn, or Western Burb might be what you're after.
The Navy Concho is concho inspired but with a geometric twist. The funky details paired with the classic navy and black backgrounds makes this scarf so versatile depending on your outfit!
The Denim Pawn is a scarf for concho lovers. First off, it features old Indian pawn jewelry and the contestant back number "tears" from Jodi's old rodeo shirt. There is already a ton of character in this design! But the vertically stacked silver conchos around the scarf border puts this design over the top for concho lovers.
The Western Burb is our final concho inspired design. At first glance, it may look like a typical Burberry style, but the western yoke edging and concho details in the yoke's peaks make this anything but typical! If you like timeless prints with a western flare in your wardrobe, it might be time to add the Western Burb.
The new summer collection is here! It's a unique challenge to transform the quality of our silk scarves into a style that can be worn at the peak of summer but we were up for the challenge. We've spend countless hours searching for the perfect cotton silk blend that is soft, yet durable and cooling. We spent several more hours creating a design that speaks to our love of vintage western and Americana roots. The result is two new scarf styles plus the appearance of our original summer favorite.
The Fringe Wraps
Now back in stock and taking orders for shipping the beginning of next week! Battling both heat and humidity, we often find ourselves using a Fringe Scarf to pull our hair up in the summer or to catch the beading sweat along our temples. The new Fringe Wraps come in two of our favorite designs-- the Fiesta and the Otomi. This wrap is a multi purpose piece. Wear is as a hair accessory, a face mask, or find another creative way to incorporate them into your look. Available in Black Fiesta or Otomi print. Now available, three new wraps, the Hot Pink Fiesta, The Black Otomi and the Baby Concho in Black.
All of our favorite western elements in a cotton/silk blend scarf. This is not your typical cotton bandanna. The Retro Rags have a soft, worn feel and sheer weight, making it a perfect summer add on. Each corner features an iconic western element-- smoking pistols, Indian headdress, saguaro cactus, and a longhorn steer skull. The cowgirl pinup in the center of the scarf showcases our slogan "Stick Your Neck Out and Tie One On" and the entire design is completed with an antiqued Aztec border. Available in Red, Aqua, Off-White, Army Green, Slate, and Straw.
A Fringe Fan favorite! The Banditos in a cotton/silk blend debuted as a summer style, but can now be found all year long. This design is "traditional bandanna with a twist." A larger bucking horse is centered in the design, with smaller bucking horses and cactus detailing in each corner. The soft paisley scroll and contrasting geometric prints pull the design together and makes it a classic to have in your closet. Available in Black, Brown, Navy, Red, Olive, Coral.
