Feel Good Florals

Theresa McCaffrey

Whether you're preparing for a riding competition or you're just after seasonal updates for your equestrian wardrobe, feminine floral details could be just the addition your look needs.

Floral prints and embroidery were all over the London Fashion Week catwalk earlier this month, and are a big hit for autumn - especially when it comes to classic flowers such as roses and carnations.

Decorate your denim jeans with an embroidered back pocket in a floral rhinestone design attach a statement buckle to your belt. This could soon become part of your signature look, especially if you accessorise with diamante rose stud earrings or a floral pendant.

You needn't restrict yourself to jewellery when it comes to injecting this floral feel into your look, instead why not update your riding classics?

The Ariat Rosebood cowboy boot is a feminine shoe which walks the line between fashion and high performance. Handmade from a premium full-grain leather, it exudes authenticity and quality and boasts a beautiful distressed brown finish.

As well as being a dream boot for riding it's a must-have for fashion conscious females too, thanks to the shaft of the shoe being delicately embroidered with roses and a four-row stitch pattern.

The design is finished with a square two, a two inch cowboy heel, Duratread outsole and ATS technology - delivering superior stability in the stirrup on both long and short rides.

Expertly handcrafted, the roses are a great personal detail and certainly add some character to these already striking boots.

You can choose to wear them as part of a practical riding outfit with an all-weather jacket and denim jeans, but they are also versatile enough to work well outside of the yard too.

Dress these boots up for autumn with a pair of skinny black jeans and a sheer blouse worn over a camisole top. Complement the floral motif with some matching hair clips or a bracelet with pretty rose details.
