California-Cool Equestrian Style | Part 1: Street Style

Equestrian style is synonymous with traditional, classic, and timeless style, but being Southern California born & raised, I decided to put a different spin on it that is casual, comfy, and super wearable.


In reality, being able to utilize breeches that we actually ride in for street style can be difficult for a multitude of reasons (like if they have sock bottoms that look strange without tall boots, have silicone knee patches, or have saddle staining). Free x Rein’s breeches were made with street style in mind, and are one of the first pairs I’ve found to actually work equally well as both a great riding breech and as a fashionable pant. I have ‘The Hunt’ style (wearing size 30R) which is made from a structured stretch fabric with stretch seams, which translates to super comfortable and flattering.


I paired mine with an oversized band tee (wearing size medium) and love how it looks with the slant zip pockets on the breeches. Oversized tees are perfect for utilizing the French Tuck.

For shoes, I chose a pair of true California classicsVans Old Skools in black. Vans are deeply embedded in SoCal culture and like In-N-Out, always reminds me of home.

The simple pairing of a loose-fit vintage-inspired tee with some classic skate shoes gives these normally polished & preppy breeches a casual, laid-back feel that can take you from the barn to the pier, to a concert or the movies…anywhere the traffic allows 😉

Stay tuned for part 2 of my style guide in collaboration with Free x Rein!
