Country clothing and accessories for women are always in fashion, whether you’re working the land or planning a night out on the town. We chatted with the gals in several of our clothing departments to share some top cowgirl fashion tips to boost your country wardrobe and overall look.
Remember, Don’t Overdo it
Whatever look you’re trying to achieve, if you break the 50% rule (wearing more than 50% of a specific fashion), you’ll end up looking like you’re heading to a costume contest. Unless you’re working the land or riding in a parade, it’s best to pair your western clothing with non-country fashions. A cowgirl hat and boots with a floral dress are a nice choice. Or try a simple white top with a pair of denim jeans, boots, and a leather belt with a big country buckle. It’s up to you and your county fashion preferences.
Kick-it in the Right Boots
If you don’t already own a pair of cowgirl boots, it’s time to try on a pair or two. To ensure the boots match almost everything, look for neutral colors and patterns that aren’t too flashy. Of course, going with a more vibrant pair of boots can also be fun and add some sparkle to any attire. Besides looking solid with a pair of jeans, the height of the boots can make a difference. From short boots, mid-calf, or boots that top-off just below the knee, a pair of boots can be worn with a denim or floral dress, shirt, or shorts.
Denim Makes a Difference
Nothing says country more than denim. From jeans and jackets, to tops and skirts, mixing and matching denim into your western wardrobe is a smart idea. Start with a few pairs of classic western jeans, which can be worn with just about anything, along with a pair of boots and a hat to achieve the country look. A straight-cut denim skirt that reaches just above the knees is a fun way to enjoy a summer day. Other denim options include the always-in-style denim jacket. This wardrobe staple is a must have and looks great over any dress any day of the week.
Get the Right Hat for Your Head
When looking for the perfect cowboy hat, try to match the hat with the occasion, such as a straw hat for a summer-fun look or a traditional suede model for your next country date. Don’t love cowgirl hats? Western-theme caps are also in style and make the perfect accessory.
Country is About Fringe and Flair
Looking for more ways to embrace the cowgirl look? Fringe on jackets, boots, vests, and bracelets is always a fun way to show your country pride. Or simply add a bandanna to your wardrobe for a quick bit of country flair.
Add Country Jewelry
From bracelets to necklaces, to rings, and earrings, the jewelry you wear can help accentuate your western style. Look for pieces with Native American accents as well as jewelry with natural American stones such as turquoise.
Get a Belt and Buckle
A good leather belt is a must for any wardrobe and a great way to show off your figure when you wear it with a denim dress or western skirt. Don’t forget the big, country belt buckle. The bigger and more bodacious the buckle, the better. If you think you’ve gone too far, it’s likely perfect.
Top if Off with the Right Top
One of the most comfortable tops out there is the plaid button-down. Choose fitted and non-fitted, as well as different fabrics for different times of the year. Best of all. These shirts look great with a pair of denim jeans or a nice skirt and cowgirl boots.
