Trendy vs Spendy: Year of the Horse – Equestrian Style

Chinese New Year just passed and since it’s the year of the horse, why not celebrate in style? With horse race season coming up, equestrian looks are hitting the runway and appearing in celebrity closets. Recently, Bruce Springsteen’s daughter, Jessica Springsteen, has been named Gucci’s equestrian ambassador for their luxury line of riding clothes.

This trend features a lot of leather, and comfy-chic blazers, blouses, belts, and boots with a modern twist. The equestrian style can be expensive, so here’s how you can add this lavish look to your closet on a skinny budget:
