Winter in Denver is characterized by chaotic weather patterns and the comforting constant of the new year ringing in with the National Western Stock Show. What I didn’t know until this year is that stock show time doesn’t just mean rodeo, it also coincides with largest trade show in the WORLD for western apparel and equipment. That’s right, the largest in the world, WESA Denver is a weekend long event featuring over 2,500 product lines and over 7,000 retailers stocking their boutiques with the hottest fashions of the year.
For me, that meant an inside peek at all fashion trends we’ll be seeing over the next few months during both the fashion show and throughout the trade show over the weekend. Western fashion inspires styles you see at all your favorite stores. This year, fun patterns and bright colors are making waves. Throughout the entire fashion show, the jewel tones and bold patterns made a mark on women’s styles.
Flowing dresses and tops make dressing both stylish comfortable one in the same. I love how comfortable this dress looked and I could see it going with alot of different accessories.
This season, everyone’s closest staple is being revived with creative hemlines and fun embroidery. Like most of the companies at WESA, Grace in LA has a wide variety of styles, ensuring that no matter your fashion preference, you’ll find the perfect jeans for your new spring look.
WESA is typically exclusive to boutique owners and buyers, stocking their stores for the coming year but as a WESA Wrangler I had the opportunity to attend the show throughout the weekend and learn about all the brands and fashion trends we can expect this year. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see what trends are coming to my favorite boutiques this year!
