trends southwest trends southwest

this is a trend that i will most certainly embrace. there’s something about the southwest style that makes me feel alive, like i have a warm breeze blowing in my hair and i’m riding horseback (bare, of course) wild and free. i love the pops of colors that stand out from the more grounding earthy tones. it all feels very natural, primitive and fierce.

row 1 – magic breeze
row 2 – copper necklace | turquoise ring
row 3 – vibrant southwest color | seafoam green antlers
row 4 – cow skull gold triangle | folk sweater
row 5 – vintage fringe moccasins | southwest wrap around bracelet
row 6 – tribal scarf | navajo weekender
