Read More

Your first country concert is a big deal! Memories, friends, and hit tunes from your favorite country singers are all great things to look forward to! While you might have planned your ticket purchase and how you’re getting there, you may be wondering what your first country concert outfit should be! At Sheplers Western Wear we offer so many different styles to choose from, but if you don’t know where to start, our staff share what to wear to a country music concert. - Levi's Women's Sea Daisy Drive Classic Crop Jeans

Levi’s Women’s Sea Daisy Drive Classic Crop Jeans – Cropped Leg

Denim – The Classic Choice

Denim shorts or pants are the classic choice for a country concert outfit. Whether you like a skinny or flared fit, high-rise or low-rise, you can’t go wrong with a pair of jeans. The rule of thumb at a country concert, though, is to go for a lighter wash jean as opposed to a dark wash like navy or black. For women we recommend the Levi Women’s Sea Daisy Drive Classic Crop Jeans – Cropped Leg to show off your cute boots and for men we recommend the classic Wrangler jeans in light blue.

Jackets – To Keep Warm

Your first country concert outfit should include a leather jacket in the winter so you can bundle up and stay warm. For milder weather, try a denim jacket with a beautiful embroidery. If you want to really add some pizazz, go for a fringe jacket! Aside from the style factor, just think of all the Boomerang possibilities.

Accessories – Less is More

Accessorize your first country concert outfit to take it to the next level. If you’re going to an outdoor country concert, a great watch or the perfect sunglasses are all you need. Keep a small fragrance in your purse to stay refreshed. If you’re going to an arena concert, style it up with a statement necklace or statement earrings with a little sparkle. Add a pretty silver hairclip to manage those lochs.

Saddle Up – Cowboy Boots Are a Must

At any country concert, you can never go wrong with a fantastic pair of cowboy boots. They are the classic choice and the ultimate must-wear when rocking to your favorite songs. Cowboy boots tie your first country concert outfit together, which is why they are the last thing to put on before you have the time of your life.

One Last Thing

Each outfit is unique to each person. Your first country concert out is worth a splurge, so go big on your outfit, but also go big on hair and makeup. Doll yourself up with a classic red lip like Taylor Swift or poof the hair like Dolly Parton. A country music concert is a time to enjoy yourself and sing along to all your favorite tunes. Just make sure to stay hydrated, snap a few pictures, and get ready to fall in love with the live country music concert experience.

Country and western wear has become increasingly popular in men’s fashion. Country icons such as Garth Books and Alan Jackson love a good, sturdy pair of cowboy boots while country singer Luke Bryan likes something a little more extravagant.

What Looks Good To You

When searching for you first pair of men’s cowboy boots you want to go with the pair that catches your eye. There will be hundreds of cowboy boots as you scroll through the website, and you might begin to feel overwhelmed, but just breathe. Look for the pair that you have in mind and if you do not find a match, then aim for a pair that is easy to style with your wardrobe such as our Lucchese Handmade Lonestar Calf Cowboy Boots – Medium Toe.

Watch Out for Your Toes

Cowboy boots tend to be pointy and tight. When you are buying your first pair of men’s cowboy boots, take the style of the toe into consideration. If you are not used to pointed boots, go for a more rounded style cowboy boot. Ariat Men’s Sport Stratton Western Boots – Round Toe is a great starter pair of cowboy boots if you have never owned one. Made with full-grain leather with an 11-inch shaft and round toe, these boots are stylish, comfortable, and will complete your western look.

Go with a Smaller Size

Usually when buying shoes, we aim for a bigger size, but when buying cowboy boots it’s the complete opposite. Cowboy boots tend to run larger, so aim for a size smaller than your shoe size. They are meant to be fitted, snug, it should fit like a glove.

Breaking in the Boots

Your first pair of men’s cowboy boots might feel strange. Stiffness and tightness are common in the sole. How do you break them in? Wear your cowboy boots as much as you can. Wear them to work, church, or a concert. There are plenty of styles that can be worn to all three events such as our Justin Men’s George Strait Twang Waterproof Cowboy Work Boots – Round Toe, which are waterproof and slip resistant for safety.

Return and Exchange

Now that you have read our cowboy boot buying guide and you’ve purchased your first pair, you’re happily anticipating their arrival. However, if you find that they don’t quite fit your style after all, Sheplers will be more than glad to accept the boots in exchange for store credit within 60 days of purchase as long as the boots are in as-new condition and the soles are unscratched. Be sure to walk on carpeted areas when you’re trying on boots for the fit to ensure you don’t scratch the soles.
