Equestrian Adoration

Feminine. Sleek. Regal. These are words that come to our mind when we think equestrian. With our breeches, tall boots and leather accessories, an equestrian style has bubbled over into our closets. 

While perusing over pictures from Paris Fashion Week, we got lost in the Hermes Spring '11 Collection. No one does equestrian better than this legend. Filled with leather harnesses, belts, corsets and hats, our hearts overflow.

Love the runway look but not sure how to sport it?
Step 1: Pair an ultra feminine blouse with sleek breeches.
Sept 2: Drown yourself with comfort in an oversized cardy for the fall and winter.  
Step 3: Accessorize with gorgeous leather embellishments: black gloves, a double-wrap belt, J.Shoes boots, and our fav pair of earrings from House of Harlow. (Boots now at picky girl and earrings soon available!)
And Numero 4: Our MUST HAVE fall purse- The Saddlery Bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs. With an equestrian flavor, this is the perfect sized purse to top off this incredible look.

This trend is much more of a lifestyle than a three month fashion craze. Not to mention, breeches are super comfy and a perfect pant when denim sounds like a pain and leggings, too relaxed. 
Our other perfect pair of J. Shoes with an equestrian vibe!
*P.S. Reem Acra is now designing equestrian wear for the FEI World Cup Dressage!
