The Desert-dweller

Nights are getting colder, but we desert-dwellers still have hot style! Heavily embroidered pieces that have a vintage and southwestern feel are the hot ticket items in Tucson. Thick natural fabrics like linen and heavy cotton are perfect for keeping cozy without a lot of bulk. Colors that closely reflect the desert landscape are popular in representing our town in an earthy, chic style. Oh and don’t think we’ve forgotten about our classic cowboy boots! Standard leather with fun accent pieces freshen up the traditional southern look.
