Why Is This HBO Show Invading Our Wardrobes?

Saddle up, it’s time to go west.

Trainloads of frazzled humans, jaded with the real world, searching for escapism. The promise of a simpler way of life. The freedom to set their responsibilities aside for a moment and play the role of cowboy in shining spurs. There’s a reason why people kept flooding into Westworld’s futuristic amusement park each day.
Sure the HBO show depicts a theme park for adults in which android play-things do their every bidding, but if we’d spent our hard-earned cash on a ticket to Westworld, the appeal definitely would’ve been the dress ups...
This – fashion – season it’s like the world’s biggest designers had a Westworld viewing party. Timely, that it’s Evan Rachel Wood’s birthday and we’re dying to raid her trailer for Dolores' buckled leather belts and swooshing skirts. Prairie dresses, lace-up boots, full skirts and plaid are leading the previous season’s Western trend out into the Great Plains.

The sweet-natured, sheltered prairie girl of season one is just our sartorial cup of tea right now, as we emulate the runways, awash with heritage plaids, rustic craftwork, sun-faded florals, shirring and broderie anglaise.

HBO Westworld

As in the series, wide-brimmed hats are the nuanced way to depict your (style) status, and demeanour. Finish with tiny, saddle-appropriate bags in – imitation – exotic hides, and you've got the ultimate escapism to the ‘old world’.
