So last October my two sisters were visiting us in Connecticut. After dutifully spending all morning at the barn (watching what I'm sure was an absolutely riveting dressage lesson) we stopped in Litchfield for lunch and a little shopping. I could sense the owner of the little boutique eyeing us intently from behind the counter. "Is it a look or do you really ride a horse?" she finally asked.
Well, I guess that says it all. Equestrian inspired fashion has moved well beyond Ralph Lauren. The BIG December 2013 issue of InStyle magazine included a full page advertisement for none other than .... Ariat.
Marissa Collections, Naples Florida's most chichi boutique, even features the clothing of designer Pamela Hensen.
Born out of a love for all things equestrian, Pamela Henson started with a collection of riding breeches inspired by women wearing jodhpurs in a cafe in Amsterdam.
So I say wear your breeches and wear them proudly! They are, after all, kind of the original skinny pants. Right?
