Designers roped in the finest Western wear for Fall 2014. Kenneth Cole let out the Wild Witch of the West, while Tommy Hilfiger broke in his wintry version of cowboy boots, commonly referred to as shit-kickers down home. Ralph Lauren did what he does best and Just Cavalli gave us gold-dipped, fringed trousers cut like your favorite pair of chaps.

If you’re looking for an article on how to dress Western without looking like a cowboy, this isn’t your can of beans. Today, we’re talking to the tomboys who grew up catching crawdads in Folgers cans and skipping rocks down by the swimming hole. The gals who hummed along to Bonanza‘s theme song and hitched rides in Chevys from boys who wore jeans tighter than their own. Because country by birth is country for life, y’all.
