It’s no secret that southwestern styles are everywhere these days. Fringe, leather, concho belts, and chunky turquoise rings, are no longer a niche look, and have made it to the runways. Here in Tucson we have always celebrated southwestern style, and are overjoyed to see cowboy boots on socialites and squash blossoms in magazine editorials.
Sometimes, however, we just want something a little different. So, we took to the desert. Not in dusty neutrals and flowing prairie skirts, but bold black and white, stark silhouettes, leopard print sneakers, and studded combat boots. As much as we love our desert surroundings, and the styles they have inspired, it can be fun to try on a look we don’t see every day.
