When it comes to adopting the westernwear trend, the first aspect to tackle is deciding which shirt to don as it’s the most essential part of a cowboy’s 'fit. Luckily for you, ASOS Marketplace has an array of retro styles to choose from — check out this patterned denim number or these old-school botanical-print pieces. As for your bottom half, try going for a retro pair of white jeans to add some flavor to the style for spring.

For an up-to-date take on the aesthetic, why not trial a double denim look? Light-wash jean-based pieces are a hallmark element of the westernwear trend, so go for a sturdy denim jacket from Calvin Klein with corresponding jeans to form the basis of your get-up. Signal that you’re ready for SS18 by wearing a striped T-shirt and go all out with your accessories — a standout leather belt and matching shoes should do the trick.
