As the western motif takes over the runway and the racks, there’s one sure-fire way to stand out and show off that you’ve been loving this look since long before it was a trend: a bad*ss belt.
“There are a couple key pieces we’ve always preached that everyone needs in their outfit arsenal,” Cheryl said. “One is a statement squash blossom, and one is a signature belt. Now, in a perfect world, you’d get to have one classic concho belt and one more traditional rodeo-style belt with a conversational buckle – that’s the dream. Then you’re covered, no matter what you’re wearing – dress, jeans, sassy slacks – or what look you’re going for. I’ve been on the hunt for champion-style buckles and traditional tooled straps for the last few years.”
And hunt she has!
“I think we have more belts in our collection right now than we’ve ever had,” Audrey laughed. “Cheryl is a woman on a mission. And I’ve got to hand it to her, she’s found some really incredible ones. I know she started out looking for those big buckles with horse profiles and longhorns on them to complement the Wild Horses collection, which are very cool, I love that old-school tooled belt strap, it makes me very nostalgic, but the ones I’ve personally fallen in love with are the silver sandcast buckles. I am so drawn to that look. I don’t even know how to describe it, there’s just something strong and sturdy but also romantic about it.”
