Equestrian

With an equestrian backgroud, I can't help but notice that season after season, designers continue to draw inspiration from the showring. This season, the style is reflected in the jodpur style pants seen in the Nina Ricci spring 09 show.

It is also interesting, however, to go straight to the source and look at the styles common in show rings right now (runway photo from style.com, other photos from ariat.com and boinkcatalog.com).

i really like this look. Although I don't have the guts to wear it, I do think I could pull of the boots. So cute!
