by Terri Serjern on November 06, 2022


If you're feeling a little bit country, a little bit boho, and a little bit cowgirl, then you've come to the right place! Whether you're going for urban wrangler, coutour cowgirl, or boho rancher, nailing that perfect country Western look is simple with this easy five-part equation. 

Saddle up and hold on to your britches, because this top-to-bottom guide will have you ready for a day on the farm or a night out at the honky tonk! Either way, you'll be prepared for a rootin' tootin' good time in any of these stylish Western-inspired looks!



All of the Western-inspired looks below follow this easy five-step formula:

1. Choose the Right Top

Denim, snap pockets, lots of fringe, embroidery, and of course, plaid are just a few of the staples for a Western shirt. The key is to find pieces that have that Western flare without being completely over-the-top.

2. Pick the Perfect Bottoms

Denim, denim, and more denim! Whether you like simple or highly distressed, all that matters is that you add the denim! Denim, with roots and heart in the Old West, is an easy an obvious choice to add to your Western-inspired look.

3. Add Comfortable & Stylish Footwear

You simply can't dress with Western flare without a good pair of boots! If you're a fan of cowboy boots, then by all means rock those authentic boots! If you're not a fan of genuine cowboy boots, no problem! Western-inspired boots come in a varitety of shapes and sizes to fit any taste.

4. A Hat is a Must

The foundation for any country ensemble starts with the hat! Traditional cowboy hats were high-crowned with wide, flat brims. Today, cowboy hats come in tons of different shapes and feature shaped brims, buckles, and other modern accents. We're a fan of the Western-inspired fedoras that can be worn with all types of outfits, not just your Western looks.

5. Accessorize with Jewelry and Bags

You all know the phrase "go big or go home" and that's never more true than in Western-wear! Don't be afraid to throw on those statement earrings, dangly tassels, fringe bags, and other bold pieces!
