Trend Talk: Coastal Cowgirl and 15 Ways to Get the Look

The coastal cowgirl micro trend combines sand-hued leathers with antlers and hints of ranch life. “Coastal Cowgirl is smack dab at the crossroads of the rugged American West and West Coast casual, an interior style that brings in California roots while wearing Western boots,” says interior designer Danielle Slutzky of Flair Design House in Newport Beach, California. “The cornerstones of cowgirl flair are worn leathers, warm sun-baked colors, and horses [of course], while the anchors of coastal appeal are lighter-toned woods, organic textiles and vintage pieces—lost, then found.”

The breezy, relaxed aesthetic features design elements from faux cowhide rugs and wood side tables, to hints of pale blue, coastal decorative objects, and ocean photography. “A favorite quality of this design aesthetic is the timelessness that both the well-worn western and charming coastal styles evoke,” adds Slutzky. “The fun lies in bridging these two enduring styles together, so it’s no wonder we are all rodeo ready to have this look in our homes. After all, it’s a little bit country and a little bit sand and soul.”

Here’s how to recreate the look at home.
