10 Western & English Today SUMMER 2018 TREND WATCH HOT OR NOT Fashion and social media guru Thea Larson shares her thoughts on current trends. For more of Thea's fashion favorites and inspiration, follow @thecowgirldiaries . FANNY PACKS Fanny packs are super functional, especially for the things you'll be up to in the summer months. Keeps your hands free, and you don't have to worry about setting it down somewhere. With all of the talented makers and designers, you can bet you'll be seeing some beautifully cra ed fanny packs with tooled leather, fringe, and silver conchos soon! METALLICS ink hints of metallics when it comes to this trend. I think we'll be seeing subtle metallic details making their way into more of our everyday wear, too. CULOTTES e fi ve-year-old child in me wants to see culottes all summer long! All the fun, fl irty abandon of a short skirt in a playfully appropriate package. MULES Yes! Especially for the summer months when slip on and go is a necessity. ink of mules like the classy big sister to your mocs. ATHLEISURE e athleisure trend is going to be strong through the summer months, too. I suspect we'll be seeing more pieces that crossover from day to evening as well. ink cozy comfort meets sophisticated style. Probably not something you'd actually wear for any athletic pursuits. HOOP EARRINGS Like a great pair of jeans, great hoops are your go-to everyday earring choice. From casual to formal, they won't let you down. SEQUINS I don't think we've seen the last of the sequin trend, especially come NFR season. I'd love to see a new take and sequins incorporated in a new way than we have in past years. Maybe some sequin blazers and camis? OVERSIZED DENIM JACKETS Yes. Maybe this is the '90s kid in me, but I'm excited for, one, more denim, and, two, oversized everything. WHITE BOOTS While beautiful, white boots and I just don't mix. I'm just way too hard on my footwear! GINGHAM Gingham is everywhere right now, and in all shades, from lemon to chartreuse. From rompers to sundresses, I'm all about the gingham. PHOTOGRAPHY: COURTESY DOUBLE D RANCH, PARADIGM STUDIOS
