The equestrian look is gaining a lot of popularity with its elegant, classic, and clean look. Aside from opting for the rock star or the biker girl look, going for a horse chic look can give you that fierce and sassy sexy look if you are not the type who is fond of revealing some skin.
Equestrian fashion pieces are no longer just for the trained horse riders. In fact, these country trends are gaining popular ground – even evolving into fashion staples especially during the fall season. Just check out how these celebrities sported their equestrian look…

The equestrian look is definitely timeless – just don’t overdo it. To get the equestrian look, it’s either you begin with having the jacket or the riding boots. Let’s start with the equestrian jackets in this post and then soon, the boots.
The most popular these days are those in navy, deep maroons, reddish-brown, and olive. You can go for tweed or polyester blazers with contrast velvet collars and piping. Here are some of my picks – Caldene jackets from Equestrian Clearance.
The olive green one is the Caldene Hickstead Wool Tweed Jacket – priced at £181 – It’s made of pure new wool tweed and it has side vents and flap pockets. It also an inset velvet collar. On the other side is the Caldene Harewood Black Jacket with contrast red lining. It comes with a velvet collar, cream piping, and four front buttons.If you want to go casual, leave it open though.
