As cooler weather starts to roll in, nothing feels more fall than cozying up in a trusty pair of boots and a denim blouse. Cowgirl Couture season has officially galloped in with a full-force howdy. But don’t let preconceived notions of poofy prairie dresses turn you off from Western wear. Contemporary iterations are much less bonnet and way more Beyoncé. Think: beautiful cream-colored Lucchese boots, sleek wide-brimmed Stetsons, and fringed shawls from Chanel. Below, six stories to get you in a Western state of mind—including a photo album of the country’s best Black rodeo queens, a guide to all things “disco” cowgirl, and an exclusive sit-down with country fashion cognoscente Shania Twain.
