Black people have always had the horses in the back; Lil Nas X just made sure that the rest of the world knew that. While history books may tell us differently, black people are deeply rooted and essential to the history of cowboy culture. As the infamous @theyeehawagenda Instagram page will show you, our black superstars have used fashion as a way to reclaim our space in cowboy history since as early as the 1990s.

Lately the yeehaw agenda has experienced a huge resurgence in black culture. Regarded by art critic and writer Antwaun Sargent as “chic and thriving,” the trend has exploded online in large part to black designers like Pyer Moss and Telfar,  Solange’s latest project When I Get Home, and even Lil Nas X’s controversial country hit single Old Town Road. From fashion editorials to the Indio dessert and even major red carpets, black fashionistas are making a cultural statement and channeling their Southern roots by incorporating cowboy aesthetic into their style.

Take some notes from these style mavens on how to put your own flare to the trending yeehaw agenda movement.
