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.
