The Western wear first is one of those fashion trends that started with girls.
The idea of wearing a short-sleeved, button-down shirt or jeans and wearing a jacket over them is a classic.
In Canada, the western style of dressing is considered more fashionable, especially with younger girls, but it still isn’t widely accepted.
The west is also a much bigger market for fashion accessories, as well as high-end shoes, which makes the western look even more expensive.
“We have a lot of guys who are not wearing westerns because they are looking for something that will last them, a more premium look,” said Toni Guevara, a fashion designer who’s worked with designers such as Paul Newman, Dita Von Teese and Yolanda Foster.
Guefara is also an instructor at the Canadian Institute for Fashion Design.
Guesara started the western-wear trend with the style she and other designers had been working on.
“I’ve been working with westerns for so many years, I’m pretty comfortable with it,” she said.
The western wear is popular in Australia, but in the US, it’s considered a bit of a fad and not really accepted.
“It’s been around for so long, it just seems to be an offshoot of the guys jeans, which are very short, and so it’s just the same thing.
But when it comes to girls, the girls westerns are a bit more mainstream, and it seems to have become a trend for younger girls,” Gueva said.
“Girls are starting to wear it because they’re interested in looking good and they’re not sure what else to wear.”
Guevaras dress has a lot more detailing and a higher cut.
It also has a high back.
There’s no need for the western to have a collar or be worn with a shirt underneath, Guevas said.
Gurney, the fashion designer, also agrees with the trend.
“The western is a trend that’s been going on for so much longer that it just feels more mainstream and trendy,” she added.
“A lot of it has to do with girls wanting to look different.”
The trend has its roots in a time when fashion was still more about a masculine style, she said, and women often wore their hair down.
“Now the trend has evolved into something a little more modern, which is cool,” Gurneys style editor, Kate Bower, said.
And it’s not limited to girls.
“As the Western style evolves and girls start to wear more of it, so does the western,” she explained.
The trend also started with fashion houses like Stella McCartney and Calvin Klein.
“At Stella McCartney, they started to do a more modern version of it and it became really popular,” Guesva said, noting the brand also made westerns in the early 2000s.
Stella McCartney also makes a western, with an asymmetrical hem and the collar.
And Calvin Klein made western wear with the collar, as did Ralph Lauren, who started making westerns a few years ago.
“These are very different styles, but they all are very similar,” Güvaras said.
As for what westerns look like?
“It can be very masculine, it can be feminine, it depends on the wearer,” Guales said.
