Country and Western are thriving in the music and fashion scene of late.

From country albums from infamous pop stars to high fashion collections inspired by the American West.

Last summer we witnessed an astronomical spike in cowboy boots, from new reds to worn, vintage browns.

So, what’s on the horizon this season?

Cowboy sunglasses and glasses. Find out how to nail this micro trend in no time.
