Take a look at the latest runway fashion and it's easy to see that a new western style is percolating for 2016's warmer seasons. Even bridal designers are embracing the look.
While you'll recognize the same tiny florals, denim fabrics, skinny ties, statement belt buckles and silver jewelry, this new look is anything but rugged. Check out the colorful palette, trendy denim variations, sheer updates, delicate lace, elaborate beadwork, dimensional nails, directional tiers, well-placed ruffles and an aviary influx that make this take on western style like no other.
Will home décor be far behind apparel's New West trend? Those days are long gone! In fact, hints of a modern take on western style have already been seen at the recent High Point furniture market and the Showtime decorative-fabrics market. Note Phillips Collection's new table with captured denim scraps, Adesal Jacquards' unexpectedly colorful approach to ethnic geometrics, De Leo's lustrous snakeskin velvets, Wesley Hall's mix of nail sizes, Penelope's bandana-print variations and Charles Martel's metallic skin look. All this is setting the stage for an updated take on western style that sets a 21st-century tone. Watch for a New West trend to be more obvious in home-décor products by the time 2017 arrives.
