“Yellowstone” is back, baby! With Season 5 now on the air, the smash hit is serving up drama for us every Sunday evening, and Kelly Reilly, aka Beth Dutton, is serving us luxe ranch looks I can’t get over. Season after season, Beth looks smokin’ hot in her feminine but tough Western wear, which is perfect because luxe Western is in this year.
Serve Luxe Western Like Beth Dutton: 2 ‘Yellowstone’-Inspired Outfits
After binge-watching all four of the seasons that had previously aired (don’t judge me — I had COVID!), I started doing some digging into Beth’s wardrobe. It turns out, the costumer for the show has fantastic taste. Beth wears pieces from TME’s favorite brands like Rails, Vince and Pendleton and mixes those brands with trusty workwear by Carhartt, Filson and Tecovas.
Some of the pieces Beth has worn in previous seasons are still available, but many are sold out, so I worked some fashion magic and dug up two outfits that Beth would wear and modeled them for you below.
Beth Dutton Outfit #1: Flirty Florals Go Date Night
The first outfit is for Beth’s date nights with Rip. This budget-friendly floral dress from Amazon showcases my “feminine assets,” and I honestly like this dress better than other more expensive dresses I tried on (like a Rails dress I bought at Saks, which was more “Little House on the Prairie” and less “big house on a gorgeous ranch”).
I paired the floral dress with the uber-soft, oversized cashmere cardigan from Quince that Amy recently reviewed. Fair warning! Size down in the cardigan — I’m wearing a size small, and it’s still oversized. I would typically wear a medium or large in sweaters.
The quality for the price with Quince cashmere is pretty awesome, in my opinion, and I felt reasonably warm in the photos even though it was about 30 degrees outside.
As an homage to the great American West, I invested in a high-quality felt hat by Portland Leather. I believe these hats are relatively new to the Portland Leather site and made in partnership with established hat-makers. The hat comes in a very fancy box that keeps the hat’s shape during shipping, and the stiff wool felt feels very high quality.
Worn with Ariat cowgirl boots, I’m ready for my guy to take me dancing and buy me a beer.
Beth Dutton Outfit #2: Western Wear Goes Upscale
The second outfit is “Beth on the Ranch.” I love this outfit. It’s so, so comfortable. This plaid button-up shirt is a Rails top (that Scotti has sung the praises of) I picked up during the NSale. I think this shirt is my most-worn item this fall/winter, and I heartily cosign Scotti’s conclusion that the Rails shirts are worth the investment.
The pants are my beloved Curvy Way-High skinny jeans from Everlane (seriously my favorites), paired with the comfiest cowgirl boots I’ve ever worn. I picked up the Ariat boots at Boot Barn, where the options for Western boots are plentiful. These boots, though, are both the most aesthetically pleasing to my eye and the most comfortable.
The cowgirl boots I remember as a kid were always really stiff, hard to break in and pinched the toes.
These Western boots, however, are well-cushioned, and I can happily wear these all day. “Yellowstone” collaborates with another boot-maker, Tecovas, as its official partner, but I like the look of the Ariat boots better than the Tecovas options I checked out.
This Carhartt jacket is a classic and built to last through snowstorms as well as a rodeo or two. This Carhartt style is very similar to the one Beth actually wears on the show, although the lining of hers is just a little different (and no longer available).
The jacket is labeled “oversized,” but I find that it runs pretty true to size (I’m wearing a size large in the photos). I love the midweight of this jacket. I’m not going to be wearing it in February when there’s a foot of snow outside, but during the shoulder seasons, the weight is perfect. As always, the material Carhartt uses is basically indestructible, so I expect this jacket to last for years.
A few parting thoughts:
1. Act like a Monica, dress like a Beth.
2. But, remember, you’re the bigger bear.
3. Whenever possible, preserve our gorgeous land.
