Congratulations! You got the rock. Have you been staring at your finger nonstop? The fun is about to start. Before you go wedding crazy, now is the time to share that beautiful ring with the rest of the world with some country engagement photos. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have the western style clothing ideas you need to walk away with the cutest, Instagram-worthy photos of you and your future hubby.

Country Wedding Engagement Photo Ideas

The first thing the bride needs to do is figure out what to wear for engagement photos. This task can be daunting, but our online western store is here to help.

A popular option is a flowy western dress. White is an obvious choice, but you can also go for fun colors like pink or yellow. Make sure the dress is not too short or tight so that you can sit comfortably and easily change poses. Look through our new selection of women’s western dresses to find the perfect piece for your rustic country engagement photos.

If a dress is not exactly your style (that’s okay too, it’s your engagement photo shoot), a pair of flattering jeans and a cute top works just as well. Avoid shirts with words or logo as they can look tacky. Try instead a solid-colored women’s sleeveless top or a Ryan Michael western wear shirt.

When it comes to country engagement photos, you of course need a pair of pretty women’s cowboy boots. While it may be tempting to get the most glamorous pair you can find, keep it simple. You want the focus of the pictures to be on that diamond and your love story, not your feet. Make sure you follow our guide on how to clean cowboy boots if you are not buying a new pair.

You can add some accessories, but once again, do not go overboard. A pair of stud earrings, a small necklace, or a plain belt can pull an outfit together without taking away from the real focus, the ring.

Engagement Picture Outfits for Him

Do not forget about the groom’s outfit. Unless your man has some serious fashion style (not likely), you may want to step in to help him get western cowboy clothing that you approve of. Remember, the last thing you want is for your outfits to clash or for your future husband to show up in a tacky shirt you cannot stand.

A tasteful men’s western shirt from Stetson and a pair of good jeans is a classic look that never goes out of style. Don’t forget a clean pair of cowboy boots. Make sure your fiancé doesn’t try to wear his favorite pair of work boots that are permanently stained in mud and have soles that are practically falling off. If your man is in need of a new pair, our men’s cowboy boot store offers thousands of styles to choose from.

The most important part of planning your country engagement photos is to have fun! When you look good, you feel good, so take your time finding an outfit you love. Browse our western store online for a wide selection of country-style clothing and accessories to get that perfect look for both you and your new fiancé.


Style Inspiration: Keith Urban

Keith Urban – one of country music’s brightest stars. Winner of multiple Grammys and CMA awards, this country music icon has walked numerous red carpets and performed on stages all over the world. Not only does his voice rock the mic, but his fashion style is one to envy. As a western store online, we are helping you get Keith Urban style clothes to mimic this man’s good looks.

Keith Urban Style Clothes: Look Like Keith

For the most formal events, Keith is not afraid to break out a full tux, but chances are your life doesn’t require such formal attire. Instead, at Sheplers Western Wear, we are going to focus on Keith Urban style clothes for more everyday wear.

Unlike some other country music stars, Keith Urban’s western style clothing is a little bit rock n’ roll. If you look at many of Keith Urban’s outfits, you will notice that black is a prominent color in his closet and graphic t-shirts are a staple. At any one of his concerts, you will probably find him in a dark tee. You can get his look with any number of our men’s t-shirts.

On top of one of his many t-shirts, Keith Urban is often rocking a jacket. Jean jackets or western denim shirts with cut off or rolled up sleeves seem to be a favorite of his. If you want to mimic his style, try the Wrangler Slub Denim Work Shirt unbuttoned and with the sleeves rolled up.

Anyone who likes the country style knows that jeans are a must. If you really want the everyday Keith Urban fashion style, you need a closet filled with good jeans. Our men’s western wear store recommends stocking up on Wranglers or Levi’s. If you want to look like Keith Urban, start with some dark pairs that are not baggy and fit closer to the body.

Finally, to complete your look you will need some cowboy boots for men. Keith Urban can be found wearing various types of footwear from sneakers to a good pair of sturdy work boots. Like the rest of his assemble, his shoes do not tend to be flashy. We recommend the black Frye Tyler Lace-Up boot. These simple and fashionable boots are a go-to piece that you can wear with almost every outfit.

With a few key pieces, you can look like Keith for your next night out with the boys or a date with your girl. Get the Keith Urban clothing and western wear you want at Sheplers.

ACM Red Carpet: Get the Look

On April 7th, country music stars crowded the ACM red carpet at the MCM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Cowboy boots strutted down the walkway. Belt buckles flashed in the spotlight. And sequin dresses stole the show. While the Academy of Country Music Awards weighs in on the best country music of the past year, at Sheplers Western Wear we are looking into the ACM awards fashion and helping you get these celebrity looks.

Let’s start at the beginning. As host of the awards, Reba McEntire had high standard of ACM fashion to meet and she succeeded. Her stunning red fringe dress was a great mix between simple and elegant. Idyllwind has some great fringe dresses and skirts to match her style. Her sequin cowboy boots were also a nice touch. Add the Roper Fancy Silver Inlay Cowgirl boots and you have your outfit.

T.J. Osborne and John Osborne of The Brothers Osborne went for western cowboy clothing that was over the top. Rather than a sleek suit like many of the men, these two went for some dramatic pops of color. Their retro suit jackets featured patterns and fun designs that stood out against the crowd. They also weren’t afraid to rock some traditional western wear accessories like a bolo tie, giant belt buckle, and of course, a cowboy hat. Get the look with a Scully men’s vintage western shirt. They have plenty of fun patterns and designs to choose from. Of course, complete with look with any number of accessories.

Numerous women including Maddie Marlow, Hannah Mulholland, Brittany Aldean, and Kacey Musgraves walked the ACM red carpet in pant suits and jumpers. These women proved that you don’t need flashy dresses to look good. Try out this look with a western wear jumpsuit.

Dennis Quaid made an appearance on ACM awards red carpet, but he strayed from the typical formal suit and men’s western wear. Instead, this actor went for western style clothing that was a bit edgier. His all black attire included a graphic t, black jeans, and a sleek leather jacket. You, too, or your boyfriend can look like Quaid with the Milwaukee Leather Men’s Quilted Shoulders Snap Collar Leather Jacket and a pair of dark Wrangler jeans. Of course, don’t forget a pair of cowboy boots for men. Our online western clothing store has plenty to choose from.

Whether you are attending a red carpet-level event or just looking for western style clothing for date night, at Sheplers Western Wear we have everything you need to look like the stars.
