Meet Elena Andres Costa, the two-wheelin’, Western darlin’ with an unabashed love for Tarantino, a thrift-addiction that’s unrivalled, and an obsession with all thing’s true crime.

Elena’s favourite trend for Autumn 2023 is:

Autumn is always tricky because I’m still refusing to accept Summer is over, so I’m still attempting to wear my t-shirt dresses, tanks & denim shorts, but this Autumn I’ve been obsessed with layering up my usual outfits with a Navajo over shirt or a fringe jackets. I LIVE in fringe jackets. Fringe jackets are a classic statement piece which instantly makes any outfit look amazing!”

Meet Suzie Crooch, a passionate connoisseur of Western home decor and a modern cowgirl fashion lover, whose style seamlessly blends rustic charm with contemporary flair.

Suzie’s favourite trend for Autumn 2023 is:

“For me, denim will always be on trend but I’m quickly appreciating the variety of denim offerings across traditional western stores and mainstream brands. You don’t have to look long before you see various plays on denim whether it be a midi skirt, fitted jacket or corset top. I’m also seeing tons of chrome. I’m excited about this because of how well it plays with turquoise and elevates an otherwise casual fit.”

“In terms of what I’ll be wearing for Autumn, my staples will be cowboy boots and a suede trench, paired with a satin midi skirt and a cosy jumper or cardigan!

Autumn is my favourite season to dress for and my cowboy boots are both stylish and practical – they can take me from a wander in the fields straight to a fun evening out.”

Meet Sophie, a movie and travel  enthusiast who describes herself as “a little bit of country, little bit rock’n’roll”. Sophie takes her rock’n’roll cowgirl style across the globe as she travels to movie premieres, festivals and unique locations across the UK and beyond.

Sophie’s favourite trend for Autumn 2023 is:

“My favourite Autumn trend has to be flute sleeves – and if they’re crushed velvet flute sleeves, even better. I think they make for a perfect spooky cowgirl statemented look – and I just love the silhouette they create. They’re so timeless, but make for a very stylish, on-trend look without any effort. I particularly love them on a crop top to really bring in the waist, or on a floaty dress.”
