The Best Equestrian Fashion Pieces to Style this Fall
By Franki Hanke
You don’t have to buy Gucci if you want to bring some of the best equestrian fashion pieces into your wardrobe. While Hermes, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren are some of the most recognizable brands designing equestrian clothing, there are other clothing brands you shouldn’t miss whether you like horse riding or just the style of equestrian apparel: Rönner, Rani Arabella, Fairfax and Favor, Veronica Beard, and Ferragamo.
To bring some of the tailored style of dressage, shop our favorite picks available now for Fall 2022. These are perfect pieces for embracing the changing palettes and temperatures this season.
For help styling all of our favorite pieces into outfits, sign up for our emails. This Sunday, we’re sharing some extra styling tips without favorite riding apparel.
Less fitted as show shirts and more fitted for showing off your style, these tops aren’t Horze athletic tops, but fashionable, transitional pieces to take you into fall.
Rani Arabella – Printed T-Shirt
Featuring an abstracted stirrup pattern, this designer t-shirt is a modern twist on equestrian motifs. It uses high-quality, 100% cotton construction for a supple soft shirt that drapes nicely off any frame.
EQL – Solstice Button Up Short Sleeve Shirt
With two patterns to choose between, this casual button-up transitions between office outfits and riding clothes seamlessly. The lightweight, breathable EcoVero viscose keeps you cool while the collar and rolled cuffs add some extra finish.
Ralph Lauren – Collared Cashmere Sweater
Creating a layered look without the extra bulk, this Ralph Lauren sweater has a detachable collar and French cuffs for that sleek, academic pairing without adding bulky base layers or a long sleeve undershirt while the weather is still transitioning cooler.
Marella – Cashmere-blend Sweater
Made with 100% wool, this timeless striped sweater is easy to elevate for dinner or dress-down for a genuine equestrian outfit for your next ride. It will keep you warm as the evening weather dips.
Allude – Cashmere Mock Neck Sweater
Ideal for both layering and solo-wear, this cashmere sweater is ultra-soft with a slim fit for a sleek, elegant silhouette. With riding breeches or riding boots, this top will read classic equestrian, but with a full-length skirt, you’ll easily meld this shirt into broader styling.
We’re not talking about Pikeur’s jodhpurs, Tuffrider breeches, or Kerrits tights here. Instead, when we’re styling equestrian fashion, we prefer pieces that nod to equestrian fashion brands without seeming like we didn’t have time to go change after a ride. These pants pair well with our inspiration without being actual riding wear.
Lafayette – Gramercy Ankle Pant
Available in four classic colors, these flattering, slim fit pants are one of the most wearable pieces we’ve found, yet these have a subtle nod to equestrian style in their pintucked seams.
Paige Hoxton – White Skinny Jean
While these might dirty quick as riding wear, you can’t deny they look wonderful. The light color makes for easy styling. The cotton and spandex blend makes for a soft, fitted silhouette (that’s a bit more fashionable than leggings).
Paige Hoxton – Classic Skinny Jean
To nod to horseback riding itself and not merely equine couture, a classic blue-denim skinny jeans is a must have. With Paige Hoxton’s cotton-spandex blend, these will shape to your form perfectly.
Ralph Lauren – Riding Pant
For heavier lean on the style of riding gear, Ralph Lauren is always reliable. These mid-rose, ponte riding pant have the raised waistline of full seat breeches with the influence of high-fashion in careful waist darts and faux leather knee patches.
Veronica Beard – Flare Jeans
With a skinny fit through the thigh and a flare through the calf, these Veronica Beard jeans provide a balanced silhouette with slim fit tops (or perfectly flair over your Ariats). The denim color is timeless and versatile from trail riding to brunching.
Jackets & Blazers
As the weather cools, jackets are an opportunity to elevate a simple outfit. They add complexity to your look while helping compensate for changing temperatures. While not show coats, we love these picks for everyday and occasion styling.
