If 2021 made anything clear, it is that in the western trend that continues to add so many followers in fashion, there is life beyond the classic pieces that make it up. In fact, Attico or Zara were two of the firms that made it clear that it was a perfect aesthetic for Christmas, recalling the figure of the Rhinestone Cowboy and Nudie Cohn’s suits . In 2022, fashion weeks show that the shadow of the Wild West is very long and is projected very strongly on street style. And it is that the fashion prescribers continue to resort to this universe as inspiration for the looks with which they are attending the parades.
