You love your western style and are not afraid to show it off. Whether at work or out for some fun, you show off your cowgirl sense with a flair, and you do it well. But is it ok to wear a bolo style necklace, big, jangly bracelets or feathered earrings to a big corporate meeting? You could if you really want to of course, but people make first impressions in an instant, so if you have an important work meeting or event to attend, gearing your clothes and accessories towards an elegant, savvy style can help you show your professional side better. But this doesn’t mean you can show off your western style.
Anyone who works in an office environment knows the appeal of the ‘Power Suit’, thatone work ensemble which makes you appear with confidence and expertise, whatever it is you are doing. Jewelry adds to this overall impression. If you are facing a board meeting or meeting a potential new client, for example, the accessories you wear can make your attire complete, when you are dressed for success, it will follow. Silver is the classic metal of western style jewelry, wearing a piece such as our Simply Sensational Bracelet will not only show off your western sense, but also make for a commanding statement in the office, one that says confidence with its staking simplicity.
You can also show off your western sense of style in professional settings, and express a sense of sophistication which reflects an impression of qualified experience within the work place. The key is to wear pieces which enhance your suits and dresses. While mixing materials and colors can be fun, within a corporate setting, blending shades and similar designs will work better for showing off your professional side. Our Ventesca necklace is a great example of incorporating western style turquoise with gold toned chains, added a touch of elegance. Another example is our Summer Eclipse layered beaded necklaces (pictured above). These are striking conversation pieces which can set off a simple business dress or suit, and reflect your love of the West.
Compliment your western style fashion with a variety of pieces for the work place and for fun, with a full accessory wardrobe you will be ready to dress for success whatever the occasion. I invite you to check out our products at West Coast Cowgirl, where you can find a variety of jewelry at our website.

Layering accessories is a growing trend in fashion. This is great news for anyone who has ever had a hard choice to make when wearing one necklace, which one do you choose? Why not choose two or three and make a unique style statement? This idea has caught on in another way too. Layered necklaces give the look of multiple pieces with the convenience of one clasp. This makes for an ideal practicality, especially when it comes to chain necklaces which can tangle together.
Layered necklaces are also a wonderful way to show off your western style, with a variety of pendants and accents often included in these pieces; one layered necklace can speak volumes about who you are. These creations can range from s few simple chains with one pendant as a focal point, to big and bold designs with beads, stones and color to capture attention. One of our newest pieces, the Outlaw Necklace is a great example of a striking statement incorporating layers.
Another great appeal to layered necklaces is their versatility, they simply go with just about any outfit. You can shift from work to play, or an evening out with ease and convenience. Often a piece you wear to the office for a bit of whimsy while working, will set off strikingly when paired with a simple black dress for date night too. Our Madison Necklace (pictured above) will show off your neckline with class and beauty whether at the office or out on the town.
With the different lengths incorporated into layered necklaces, it is also easy to add in another piece such as a choker to enhance your style and mood. Our Ventesca Necklace is not only great for wearing over winter sweaters with its extra-long chains, the shorter chain adds a bit of sparkle with its tube centerpiece, while the feather and turquoise show off your western style. This design makes it easy to add in a choker for a completely new ensemble.
Whether you go for big and bold, or whimsical and delicate, or combine these forces together, the illusion of multiple chains in layered necklaces adds a flair of drama to your wardrobe. I invite you to check out our products at West Coast Cowgirl, where you can find a variety of jewelry at our website. Whether you are looking for a gift for that special someone or ready to treat yourself to something new, products are added regularly so be sure to check back often.
Pearls have long been a favored fine gem among the upper classes and elite. Though not really a gemstone, these beauties of the sea speak of elegance and grace, and were once known as the Queen of Gems. A true, real pearl, farm grown or naturally cultivated still costs a tidy sum. Pearl-diving is strenuous, often dangerous work, and it takes up to a year or more for them form. Pearls have also been seen intimately connected with older women, with younger generations shying away from wearing them; many of us can remember Grandma’s pearl strand necklace.
But times change, and so does the illustrious pearl. Gone are the days of old-fashioned pearl jewelry, and in are a variety of pearly trends sure to excite anyone looking to dress up an outfit, no matter your age. Faux pearls are also more highly coveted, with today’s sophisticated manufacturing of man-made pearls making it hard to tell imitation from the real deal.
Western Style jewelry has also embraced the pearl. With many of the latest designs being reminiscent of the Victorian era, today’s pieces tie in the timelessness of days
gone by, with a bit of elegance and adventuresome spirit. This is not to say pearls with a western flair are stuffy or old fashioned. On the contrary, today’s jewelry accented with pearls work well with more modern materials and in combination with different styles. The end result is a bit of beautiful elegance which can subtly add to a casual outfit, or stunning statements which proudly shows off your own independent spirit.
At West Coast Cowgirl, we have some simple and intricate pearl accented jewelry sure to please. Our Umbra Necklace combines a bit of elegance with a whimsical flair in the
dangling double pearl pendant. Our Sunshine Heart earrings add a splash glitz highlighted by two faux pearls in each, perfect for a big night out when you want to make a splash yourself.
We have posted about Western Style chokers, which make a strong fashion statement themselves. Adding in a pearl accent can make for some enchanting designs. The
simplicity of our double leather My Lucky Charm choker is set off with a touch of class by the dangling pearl, one of the various charms you can select to go with this casual design.
Anyone who wants to turn heads with a bit of Victorian flair, or set off a Western-Steampunk ensemble, won’t go wrong with our Baby Doll Floral Choker. The faux pearls set against soft, grey velvet are timeless in their allure.
Western style jewelry accented with pearls brings a bit of elegance and simple beauty to whatever you wear.

In the world of fashion, leather is still a very popular material. But not everyone wants to have leather in their closet. We have gone from a time when real fur was all the rage, and everyone who was anyone had a mink stole, to finding man-made options which can reproduce the look and feel of luxury without harming any animals. Leather clothes and accessories are also seeing a similar shift, with man-made, faux, or as the new buzz word calls it, vegan materials replacing the real McCoy.
When you hear the term vegan, most likely you think of a specific diet which omits any meat, dairy or egg products. But there is more to being vegan than just food. A vegan approach takes all animal products into consideration, searching for non-animal alternatives. Many fashion designers are listening to consumers who are seeking solutions to classic fashion styles and elements. Vegan Fashion gives the look and feel of leather and luxury, at a lower cost, and without harming any animals; these are clothes and accessories with a conscience.
Western-style fashion may have embraced leather for generations, but that doesn’t
mean a socially conscious cowgirl can’t find alternatives. At West Coast Cowgirl, we have you covered, especially when it comes to handbags and purses. Yes, we need a practical carry-all for our essentials, but there is nothing that says your handbag can’t have style, enhance your outfit or make a statement all its own.
Western-style handbags come in a variety of materials, and make a great fashion statement themselves. Vegan bags are a wonderful solution for the look and feel of leather, while being animal-friendly too.
