Fashion in the arena seems to follow the fall/winter makeup trends. Every horse show fashion lovers know that this is the time of the year where trends for the next show season are set! Congress and World Show are the best shows to check if you want to have an update on what is trendy and what is not.
As I wrote last week, this year’s congress was defined by a massive presence of black outfits. Black outfits with really a lot of metallic decorations. You can see a lot of gold and silver, but the most diffuse color is bronze. Metallic shades add an extra sparkle to the outfit.
Silver and gold are timeless colors, you can be sure that they will be trendy in the show pen in the next ten years. Moreover, they are appropriate for every rider and they fit every horse color.
I think that bronze is so popular because it is such a beautiful color. It is wonderful with bay, sorrel and roan horses. If you add bronze accents to a black base jacket or vest, you will have a dream outfit to wear with a bay horse. As fringes are actually very popular, you can add bronze fringes to your outfit and you will for sure make heads turn.
So what do you think about metallic shades? Do you like them?
