The quickest way to add a western touch to your look is putting a pair of metal tips on your shirt. They can be bought online or in your local haberdashery store. If the stores near you don't have them and you can wait to sport the look you can make metal tips for your shirt out of jar lids like I did today. The good thing about this projects is that jar lids come in a variety of colors and patterns so you can make your custom metal tips and you're not forced to wear only gold and silver ones you can find in shops. Also you don't have to buy a new jar lid either. Eat the jam, wash the lid and you're ready for the transformation.

Wrap a piece of paper around the tip of your shirt to get the pattern
Cut out the shapes and leave an edge around the triangulars. Be careful when cutting the foil because it's sharp.
Bend the edges with pliers
Protect the right side of the tip with a piece of folded paper towel. Fold the edge at the top of the tip on the inside.
Put a drop of glue on the tip of the collar. Place the metal tips in place and the bend the corners inside with pliers. Protect the right side of the tip with a piece of folded paper towel and you've done!
