There are a million and one ways to style cowhide bags from Holy Cow Couture, but if you’re looking for a place to start, let us be your guide! As the creators of the original hide fashion handbags, we’ve had plenty of time to experiment with different looks and styles. In today’s post, we’ll share a few of our favorite fashion tips to help inspire your next favorite outfit!
Choose Your Crown With Care
With a designer leather handbag on your arm, you’ll be feeling like a bohemian cowgirl queen. Complete your look with a crown to match! Read on to learn more about some of our favorite hat styles to pair with our custom purses and bags, and be sure to browse our collections today to find a one-of-a-kind Western bag that speaks to you!
Cowgirl Hats: A Western Classic
You knew this would be on our list! You can’t go wrong with this time-tested Western classic. Equally fashionable and versatile, cowgirl hats come in almost every shape, color, and material under the sun. Choose one with a pop of color to bring out any accent colors in your bag, or opt for a softened neutral hue to let the bag be the star!
Wide-Brim Rancher Hats: Vintage Annie Oakley
For a bold and trendy look with a Wild West callback, we suggest pairing your Holy Cow Couture handbag with a felt wide-brim hat. Annie Oakley, famous American sharpshooter of the late 19th century, was rarely photographed without her signature wide-brim hat, which is probably why the style still feels edgy today! After all, Annie famously said, “I ain’t afraid to love a man. I ain’t afraid to shoot him either.”
Let the men (and women) in your life know that you’re a fashionable force to be reckoned with! Like cowgirl hats, wide-brim rancher hats come in a range of materials and colors, so it’s not hard to find the perfect pairing for your Western-style purse. Solid colors pair well with highly textured bags, but don’t be afraid to experiment!
Chic Fedoras: A Trendy Twist
Stylish fedoras are a timeless staple, and even though they are historically associated with film noir and mobsters, that doesn’t mean they have no place in Western fashion. In fact, we’re surprised that they aren’t more common!
An unexpected pairing choice like a simple felt fedora can make trendy handbags even trendier! If your chosen bag is a statement piece with fringe, animal print, hair on cowhide texture, bold color accents, or all of the above, then a casual fedora is the perfect way to make an outfit feel complete without competing for attention. On the other hand, a simpler leather purse goes well with pretty much anything, including fun and flirty statement hats!
No Hat at All: Feel the Wind in Your Hair
Of course, sometimes the best choice is also the simplest one. There’s nothing wrong with letting your tresses fly free! We may be biased, but at Holy Cow Couture, we believe our custom cowhide handbags can carry any outfit on their own — with or without accessories or a hat on your head.
So let loose and feel the wind in your hair — with Holy Cow Couture, your style can take you anywhere.
Make It Your Own With Holy Cow Couture
No matter your fashion tastes, there’s a Holy Cow Couture bag that belongs in your closet. After all, we are the creators of the original hide bag! Since 2007, when our founder began selling her hand-made creations out of the trunk of her car, we have been carefully hand-crafting one-of-a-kind bags. Every piece is totally unique and made of 100% real sustainable leather.
