The Best Equestrian Fashion Pieces to Style this Fall

Woman styling one of our picks for best equestrian fashion: a plaid blazer and white skinny jeans.

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. 

Ralph Lauren's cashmere sweater with collar and cuff details.

Tops

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.

Pants with pintuck seam detail

Pants

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. 

Buy it here. 

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). 

Buy it here. 

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. 

Buy it here. 

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. 

Buy it here. 

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.

A blue wool blazer (and one of our picks for best equestrian fashion)

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. 

Veronica Beard – Hudson Jacket

Colored in army green velvet, Veronica Beard’s Hudson Dickey Jacket is modern, but the tailored shape and elbow patches have a touch of vintage flair. Layer other dickey inserts to change the look: casual denim or edgy leather. 

Buy it here. 

Joules – Blazer

Made sustainability in mind, this wool blazer has a soft polyester lining. It’s a classic cut with clean, trim tailoring is reminiscent of show jackets and elevates every look you top with it.

Veronica Beard – Destry Jacket 

In a lovely houndstooth checkered pattern, the Veronica Beard Destry Jacket is fall encapsulated. Veronica Beard offers the same pattern in a matching vest or pants if you want to wear it as a suit.
