Equestrian Fashion Is Timeless

Elegant. Classic. Sophisticated.

These are words that fashion enthusiasts use in describing the new equestrian lines seen on international catwalks. Models are sporting riding hats, tweed jackets, monogrammed polo shirts and tall boots.

Equestrian culture is centuries old, particularly in Great Britain and the deep American South. Riding and fox hunting circles were always defined by strict decorum and conservative traditions that extended to everything, including clothing. Fashion designers have borrowed from the equestrian world at various times. This season, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Hermes and Gucci have created unique equestrian-themed lines.

Tall boots, which end just below the knee, are beautiful and functional. The heels tend to be low. Dress boots are stiff and used during formal fox hunts. Top boots have a cuff at the top and are traditionally worn by male riders.

Riding boots are an excellent investment for everyday wear because they will never go out of style. If you are going to spend money, it is worth it to do so here. Also, take the time to select a well-crafted pair.

  1. I love this blog entry. I don’t know a lot about boots, so this really helps me. The equestrian boots are very sleek looking. Something to save up for! Also, I’d like to learn more about the whole “equestrian culture” since it seems to be pretty timeless.
