Regardless of whether or not it is your first rodeo or your 101st, who says that anyone has to be able to tell the difference?

Now that spring is finally upon us, that only means one thing: spring rodeo season. Whether you are there to cheer on the team roping, barrel racing, or watch how long each cowboy makes it on the back of a bull – you are going to want to make sure you dress the part.

For guys, never underestimate the power of a great cowboy hat, pair of cowboy boots, and perfectly-fitted jeans. These three essentials will take you from the rodeo to real life – and luckily, you can find the best quality of all of these items right here at Sheplers. Just pair them with a brightly colored plaid shirt or your favorite button up and consider yourself ready for a spring rodeo.

For girly girl cowgirls – go with a simple day dress that you don’t have to worry about getting dirty. For the tomboys, pair your favorite colorful tank with a pair of jeans or jean shorts and a leather belt. The best part about both of these looks is that they each come together with a classic pair of cowboy boots. For the ladies who want to show that this (literally) is not their first rodeo – throw on a cowboy hat and call it a day.

“Wrangler has been outfitting cowboys and cowgirls since 1947 and has evolved into an iconic denim brand known for its heritage and deep roots in the western lifestyle.”

Shep Wrangler

Expect to see cowgirls running around clothed in fringe, lace, and colorful patterns alongside their urban cowboys this summer. In honor of the upcoming months spent in the sun, Sheplers spoke with Wranglers for an exclusive take on what to expect to see on shelves from the beloved brand this summer – along with some inside information on what sets Wrangler apart from the rest.

1.) What would you say sets Wrangler apart as a brand?

Wrangler has been outfitting cowboys and cowgirls since 1947 and has evolved into an iconic denim brand known for its heritage and deep roots in the western lifestyle. The depth and breadth of the Wrangler Western collection speaks to its commitment to quality and innovation, two characteristics that truly set it apart from its competitors. As the leader in western wear and maker of the original Cowboy Cut jean, Wrangler is not just a household name, but it’s a lifestyle. People know they can count on Wrangler for quality and durability – for clothing that can keep up with their lifestyle while remaining true to their western ways.

2.) What is your all-time favorite Wrangler memory?

I have so many wonderful memories at Wrangler it’s difficult to have a favorite. We’re fortunate to work with the best of the best in terms of brand endorsees, so being a part of their greatest moments is extremely rewarding. A few special memories come to mind – George Strait playing for more than 104,000 fans at AT&T Stadium in 2014, and being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006; Team Wrangler cowboy Trevor Brazile winning a record 19 world championships in 2014; and Dale Earnhardt, Sr. driving the Wrangler Jean Machine and seeing that legacy carry on with Dale Jr. There’s never a dull moment in this business, and we look forward to the great memories that are yet to come.

3.) How long has Wrangler been making denim?

Wrangler Western has been outfitting authentic western consumers and western-inspired shoppers since 1947.

4.) Describe Wrangler in three words.

Wrangler jeans are authentic, comfortable, and durable.

5.) What do you think the biggest spring 2015 fashion trend will be?

For ladies, we’re seeing fringe, lace, and colorful patterns as strong trends. Rich southwest-inspired patterns and color stories are still prominent this season. You’ll see a lot of this incorporated in our spring and summer collections, from colorful palazzo pants that are stylish without sacrificing comfort, to brightly patterned skirts and dresses that incorporate different materials/textures. On the denim side, we’re continuing to follow the clean back pocket trend in our Rock 47® by Wrangler® collection, by offering more styles and washes in skinny, boyfriend and flare fits.

For men, we’re seeing heavy stitched denim as a growing trend among our “urban cowboy” consumers. These cowboys are looking for a premium, fashion-forward, yet western-inspired jean that can be worn out for an evening with friends or to a concert. We launched the men’s Rock 47® by Wrangler® jean collection last fall to fill this need.

6.) Who would you say is your favorite country music artist?

George Strait. He has been a constant presence in country music for more than 25 years. The King of Country Music is a close friend to Wrangler and his talent and legacy are truly one of a kind.

7.) Is there anything exciting coming from Wrangler in 2015?

This summer, along with fresh color combinations in our men’s Wrangler Retro and Rock 47 by Wrangler shirt collections and unique dress patterns in our women’s Rock 47 by Wrangler and Premium Patch collections styles that create the perfect summer concert look – Wrangler is unveiling the next phase of its Premium Performance Cowboy Cut® collection offering innovative technology to meet the demands of our authentic cowboy consumer. The Cool Vantage Cowboy Cut collection features sweat control technology and wicks up to five-times faster than other denim to keep the wearer dryer and cooler. More details coming soon!

We would ask you if you plan on checking out the premiere of The Longest Ride tonight, but then again -we figured a better question would be: will you opt for the matinee or the midnight showing? Because clearly, this is a movie that we know none of you would miss.

Destined to be another classic film from the king of storytelling, Nicolas Sparks, The Longest Ride will, for lack of a better word – take you on a ride. Featuring Ariat’s “sponsored” rider, Luke Collins (played by Scott Eastwood) as a former champion bull rider in pursuit of a comeback; get ready to watch him go through the ups and downs that, for once in his life has nothing to do with bull riding, but with love.

Disclaimer: be prepared to walk out of the theater with a new-found love for bull riders.

And if you want to dress just like Luke Collins, then head on over to Sheplers and shop Ariat today.
